high dive
2337 18th Street, NW

Update from a High Dive event (posted in the comments):

“The High Dive is closing up, and this is the last weekend! [February 18 – February 19] Come say bye to the bar and to Liz!

It’ll be cash only, open bar, don’t have anything to do the next day!”

A reader reports:

“I walked by it on Friday Night around 10PM and it was closed. All Bars should be open on a Friday night. I think it’s done. I went in there like a month ago and it was dead on a Saturday night.”

Another reader hears they are: “looking to sell the place.”

The High Dive opened in the former Pharmacy Bar, RIP, space back in March 2015.

Their Facebook hasn’t been updates since January 13th. Their website says:

“It’s like your favorite house party with better paint and a clean bathroom. Cheap drinks, cheap food, cheap shots from the bartender. Street Fighter 2 (champion edition!), board games, bills-only jukebox (no touch tunes), & chalk in the bathroom.

Selling food through last call, every night.

FRI & SAT: 5PM – 3AM”

I emailed the bar manager a few days ago but still haven’t heard back yet. Updates if/when more is known.
