Whoa, thanks to Dustin for sending: “Talks swirling that Lucky Strike in Gallery Place (701 7th Street, NW) has reportedly closed for good @PoPville (Their twitter account is gone too)”

Ed. Note: Last week we learned that Fado had also permanently closed in Chinatown. And back in January before the virus we learned that Bar Louie had closed after many years in Gallery Place.

Thanks to a reader for passing on from The Passenger:

“Hey guys. Thank you all so much for coming out and supporting us over these last weeks. We regret to announce that we are suspending all business, effective immediately. We hope you and yours stay safe and can’t wait to see you again when we’re able to reopen.

Melissa writes: “Sad news about The Passenger. I have REALLY loved their $3 growler fills with purchase of food. Now that they are closed, any leads on other cheap growler fills in the area?

From the good people at From Moreland’s (5501 14th Street, NW):

“We have had such amazing support over our two classics that we will try to release these each week on Whiskey Wednesday. Because of supply shortages these are super limited and tend to sell out pretty fast.
These can be ordered online here starting at 4pm today.”

808 7th Street, NW

Yesterday we shared the scuttlebutt, today it’s confirmed:

“Fado Irish Pub in Washington DC opened on March 16, 1998 with a 20-year lease on our building at 808 7th Street. March 16th was our last day of business before the COVID-19 shutdown. It is with great regret that we tell you that, 22 years to the day of our opening, it was our final day of business at 808 7th Street, forever.

Like many others in D.C., the reason for our closing is “progress”. We have negotiated quarterly extensions to our lease for the past two years, while trying to negotiate a long term-agreement. And, after years of trying, we have been unable to do so. There will be many restaurants that will not reopen after the current closures. Ironically, ours is not about COVID-19, we just could not renew our lease.

There are not many places in our business that stay around for 22 years. That is a rare achievement made possible by long-term and caring customers. But there is a bigger achievement, as well. It is the people who have honored us by being part of our team for, in some cases, decades. You never want to single anyone out for special mention but in some cases it is necessary. Marina, Marcelino, Mary, and Jonesy all worked (or as Greg would say, pretended to work!) with us for over 20 years. There were so many other characters, regulars and influencers of our business who were on our team for over 10 or 15 years. The list is too long to mention. They were the reasons we were a D.C. favorite for so long. Read More

Yesterday two very close sources told me that Fado would be closing permanently. I haven’t seen confirmation yet on Fado’s social media or website but this afternoon someone shared the following public Facebook post from someone seemingly very much in the know:

“FADO

22 years to the day that Fado opened in Chinatown DC (March 16, 1998), we closed our doors to Coronavirus on March 16, 2020. This week, that closing became permanent. Read More

Their twitter is still live but hasn’t been updated in a while, their website is still live and their Facebook indicates they were doing take out as recently as Friday. Anyone know if they are still doing take out?
