Ed. Note: Before you reflexively say something negative please read the full description below. I know it goes against instinct but it can be done. Personally, I’d like to give a professional breakdancer for over 20 years the benefit of the doubt so let’s at least wait for them to open before judging. Obviously it won’t be for everyone and that’s ok. No need to poison the well just for fun.

If you are a huge Patty Boom Boom fan, I feel ya – take time to grieve – and revisit in a few months – also no need to reflexively trash the replacement. Here’s the link to the original story about the coming closure where you can lament the passing. I mean that genuinely.

I recognize my request may fail but I felt it needed to be said.

Cool I hate having to preface like that now here’s the owner’s vision for the coming Cloak & Dagger:

“So in a nut shell Cloak & Dagger’s concept will pay homage to DC’s history of elusive spies, espionage and underground secret society. A red telephone booth (London style sorta like the Dr. Who) will be the disguised entrance way into the bar/lounge. Covert rooms leading to different areas (I.e. the entrance, VIP room, DJ booth, etc) of Cloak & Dagger will provide a fun and classy Victorian style old school ambiance.

The 1st floor will be more of a speakeasy type of bar. A secret book shelf door will lead into this bar where it will be set up more as a mixology concept with seasonal drink menu specials.

2nd floor will more of the “club” where we will have the DJ’s set up for play to the crowd. The 3rd level mezzanine will be more for the bottle service crowd who prefer to keep it more chill with their group of friends.

Weekly events will depend on the nights. I’ve been a professional breakdancer for over 20 years (my crew is the Lionz of Zion)… so as someone who loves dance I definitely plan on having some nights that will cater to all the dancers (housers, bboys/bgirls, hip-hop dancers). I want to create an environment that not only has great music but is fun and entertaining. I feel that the DC scene has lost some of that and plan to bring that type of energy back.”
