1909 K Street, NW

Thanks to all who emailed. Amanda reports:

“It appears that the 19th street wave of closures has spilled over to K st. Cities (formally LOOK, the rumored Icelandic restaurant) has closed. Cities was located on K st NW in between 19th and 20th st.”

Cities’ website is still active so we’ll see if this is a refresh or if a new restaurant is coming. Since their phone number is disconnected and they haven’t tweeted since March 14th I’d guess that latter. Stay tuned.

Stay tuned.

“Dear PoPville,

Do you know what’s going on with Eat the Rich, Mockingbird Hill, and Southern Efficiency? I walked by the other day and it looks like they’re all closed for good (white butcher paper covering the windows), and their websites aren’t working. Have these businesses shuttered?”

From a press release:

“The most anticipated pop-up of the summer is coming. Beginning June 21st, Drink Company and Ommegang Brewery present the Game of Thrones Pop-Up Bar (PUB), in the spaces formerly known as Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency, and Eat the Rich (1839-1843 7th Street NW). (more…)

1334 U Street, NW

Well, they put up a good fight

Vivid’s Facebook page says:

“Vivid Lounge will quickly become your favorite destination this summer! We will bring some new flavor to the District by catering to a diverse crowd and offering great deals on drinks & food. Also, did we mention we’re located at the heart of DC’s historic U St. Corridor? More info coming soon.”

Handsome Cock (formerly Touchdown, and Momo’s sports bar), above the Codmother, is now Vivid Lounge.

And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that.
