Well this building, formerly home to Muse Lounge, is pretty freaking awesome. Built in 1928, the Bulletin Building:

“The architectural firm of Rodier & Kundzin designed the building for the United Publishing Company. The main façade of the building is constructed in limestone, and features four Art Deco bas relief panels that portray the printing trade and ties the building to the trade, that it housed for 60 years.”

It is owned by the group that owns, seemingly, nearly all of DC’s cool historic buildings – Douglas Development. The 7,070 rentable square feet building is currently for lease though no price is listed.
