Thanks to Jay for sending news about 1905 Lounge taking over the former Cortez space. Before Cortez opened here in 2018, the space was home to 1905 who reigned here for 9 years. Coming full circle (ish), name-wise anyway.

Hoy moly, thanks to Dominic for sending the action at DC’s first “French-Canadian Disco”:
“Le Mont Royal. 10:10pm Friday night.
They must have been handing out Taylor Swift tickets.
There was a small line of maybe 10 people around 8:30pm and they were taking names and numbers. We were told it would be 45min. By 9:30pm it looked like this. We never got a call. A good crowd and good drinks at Grand Duchess met the moment.”
Check out the video to see how far the line stretches: Read More

From a press release:
“Le Mont Royal, a “French-Canadian disco”, is swinging into the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. at 1815 Adams Mill Rd NW on Friday, January 6th. Chas Jefferson and Bart Hutchins, D.C. hospitality industry friends who bonded over their favorite spots in Montreal and Paris, are the duo behind the concept. Le Mont Royal cranks up the conviviality and maximalism they found themselves craving in a post-COVID world to deliver a natural wine and neo-bistro food-fueled party. Nights at Le Mont Royal will be set to the soundtrack of DJs spinning their house collection of soul, funk, and disco vinyls. Le Mont Royal will be open from 4 PM to midnight on Sunday-Monday and Wednesday-Thursday (closed Tuesday) and 4 PM to 2 AM on Friday and Saturday.
