1330 U Street, NW

Back in late Jan. we learned that a new bar called the Fainting Goat would be coming to the former Urban Essentials space at 1330 U St, NW. Fainting Goat’s owner tells me that there are two groups opposing their liquor license application:

“The Shaw Dupont Citizen Association (SDCA, the people behind the U Street Liquor License Moratorium) and also a protest from some people on Wallach Place (directly behind the site).”

The folks from Fainting Goat have set up a petition saying:

“The proposed site is currently vacant and the establishment will have no outdoor seating, nor will it have a roof deck. As local business owners who have operated successful establishments in DC for over 15 years, we promise to be good stewards of the neighborhood.”

So if you live in the neighborhood and would like to support Fainting Goat you can sign the petition in their support here.
