The Reef Abruptly Closes for Good in Adams Morgan

2446 18th Street, NW

Despite just reopening last Thursday, The Reef will be closing for good. Thanks to a reader for sending word. From their Facebook page:

“To Our Community,

As many of you know, the last few weeks have been very challenging for the Reef. After much effort, and cooperation between the ownership, our amazing staff and community, and the ABRA, we were able to regain our license and reopened our doors. However, as a result of the recent events we can no longer operate.

It has been our honor to be a part of the Adams Morgan Community for almost 12 years. We know many of you consider The Reef home and we consider you all family.

While we can no longer call 2446 18th St. home, we know that the friendships that have been created between the hundreds of employees and thousands of customers we have had the privilege to serve will endure for a lifetime.

Please welcome whoever is fortunate enough to recreate this space as you welcomed us all those years ago.

And please like The Reef on Facebook if you would “like” to be a part of an ongoing community. Who knows what will be next for us, but as always, everybody will be invited!

To everyone we say, “Cheers Bro”, and Thank You.

The Reef”
