Touchdown Sports Bar becomes Handsome Cock on U Street – Seriously – I think

1334 U Street, NW

Update from the Handsome Cock’s facebook page:

“Our landlord doesn’t like the name , so for a while we will have fun with this song without a proper signage. We will stand firm and sooner or later we will put our name outside.”

Earlier this month Barred in DC noted:

“The folks behind the cult favorite dive bar The Codmother appear to be set to soon open a new dive [Handsome Cock] in the upstairs space at 1334 U St. NW formerly home to the Touchdown Sports Bar & Grill.”

What sounds like an early April Fools joke appears to be legit. There is a Handsome Cock facebook page set up for 1334 U St, NW and it says they soft opened on Friday. On Sunday afternoon a big question remark remained in the window:

So it’s not clear if this is a new dive bar, a new gay bar, a new gay dive bar, a new French bar, a new French dive bar, a new French gay dive bar, well there are many possibilities…

Anyway, Touchdown replaced Momo’s sports bar at the same time Codmother replaced Cafe Nema back in Jan. 2011. Handsome Cock (?) is located on the second floor of 1334 U St between the recently opened Fainting Goat and New Town Kitchen & Bar:
