Bummer – Döner Bistro closing August 1st in Adams Morgan

doner bistro
1654 Columbia Rd, NW

From Döner Bistro:

“Achtung: What you are about to read might upset you! Everything has an end – only the sausage has two“ (German saying)

We wholeheartedly thank you for the unforgettable time here in AdMo

As you might have heard through the grape vine, it is true:

August 1st is not only the day when we first received the key to our door to Germany here at 1654 Columbia Rd. four years ago; it is also going to be the day we will be returning it as this location will be closed down on August 1st

We are grateful for all your support and use of our beloved AdMo living room throughout Sunday, July 31st.

We appreciate all your loyalty, open mindedness towards our modern/Northern German craziness, your friendship, relationship, story exchanges, constructive criticism which has made us stronger and better at what we do; and your support in general throughout the good times as well as the bad ones.

The initial overwhelming sadness that we felt is healing through looking back on the four years spend together as a community. Our hearts are filled with a sense of pride and happiness, looking back on memories made such as:

Costume contest won by the big yellow chicken at our Faschingsfest Oktoberfest craziness with some of you across the street complaining about the German madness going on with us and our guests leading conga lines out the door and over the tables, birthday parties, family reunions, blind dates, runners meetups, doggie day outs (though one dog of a customer bit one of our team members once),

DAS BOOT, FIFA WM, FIFA EM, Keg bus tour to the U.S. vs. Germany friendly were the DC bus driver did not find the stadium at first; and of course and most importantly all the countless hours spend together just by summing up the regular day to day visits by some of you – Just to say hi and a Döner Box and or a Bier of course J

Thank you for all you have been to us – we hate to go, though with our minds at peace and with our hearts telling us we’ll see you again some day!

So long, friends – Stay great!

Yours Truly,

Timo, Nicole and the whole Team at DB AdMo
