Statement on the closure of Eighteenth Street Lounge after 25 Years

Washington, D.C., has been the home of Eighteenth Street Lounge for the past 25 years, and I have had the great fortune to deliver unique nightlife experiences in a city that I love. The well-being of our patrons, and staff has always been a leading priority for the ESL team, and given the current uncertainty of when we can welcome patrons back safely, we have decided to close the space indefinitely.

I want to thank the amazing patrons and dedicated staff who kept us around for more than two decades in the nation’s capital. We set the bar really high and we leave behind an untouchable legacy in DC nightlife. There is such huge potential in this market, and the closure of ESL does not mean I will abandon my roots in this city. Rather, I am taking time to listen to the science on public health and rethink strategies for the future of how we can deliver the best experiences to patrons moving forward.
