1359 U Street, NW

I noticed last night that Cloak & Dagger had opened in the former Patty Boom Boom space on U Street. Hours are listed as:

Thursday 10pm – 2am
Friday 10pm – 3am
Saturday 10pm – 3am

Back in February we learned:

““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.”

    The Doctor travels in a Police Box, not a Telephone booth!!!

      this totally jumped right out at me – sure red phone booths are london-y, but they’re not remotely Doctor Who!!! He travels in a blue police box!!!

    • Philippe Lecheval

      And fake speakeasies are so 2010.

  • wdc

    Press releases aren’t very sneaky.

  • anonymous

    Oh how I miss Patty Boom Boom. Never came out of there sober or dried. Memories.

    • Jen Jen

      You were doing it right.

  • Nothing says covert speakeasy like bottle service.

  • jenster8dc

    They had me at “espionage.” They lost me at “bottle service.”

  • Ugh

    Bottle Service
    Entrance gimmick

    These are important words and a potent warning, thank you for the heads up.

  • overonhst

    Did Dabney Coleman make it?

  • skidrow

    i don’t think the owner understands the concept of a speak easy. this place seems gimmick and the concept is all over the place.
