“Restaurant/Retail Exodus in Mount Vernon Square?” Including Sixth Engine!??!


77 H Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

BREAKING News! Sixth Engine also closing on Mass and 4th. It’s a bloodbath! Apparently something is moving in, so it won’t be empty long. It’s a real bummer, it was a great after work spot.

Ed. Note: Update from another reader: “I can confirm Sixth’s Engine’s closing. I was at the closing party last night.”


438 Massachusetts Ave, NW

I’ve worked in Chinatown/Mount Vernon for about eight years now, and the recent spate of business closings is jarring! Just got word the Starbucks next to the Walmart is closing, which is hot on the heels of the Au Bon Pain and Capital One closing on the same block.

In City Vista, Busboys and Poets moved, Ace Hardware closed, and Capital One (again!) closed.

Panera left, allegedly because rent was too high.

What is going on?!?!”
