Yesterday we reported that “The Mellow Mushroom in Adams Morgan has been closed for at least 5 days.” In certain circles panic quickly followed. Others said, this is simply the Mellow Mushroom way. And it appears the later was correct.

And now they’ve added signage to their door. Another reader hears they may even reopen this afternoon. Fingers crossed!


“Dear PoPville,

During the heatwave the surface temp of the sidewalk/roads was reaching 140+. I’m really really bummed a Chinese elm was cut down at the corner of Columbia and 18th a few days ago. Adams Morgan is v dense w pedestrian foot traffic and it provided a ton of shade for bus riders, pedestrians waiting to use the cross walk and also a nice carbon sink. Any ideas why it was cut down and not trimmed?”

Been getting a bunch of worried messages about Mellow Mushroom in Adams Morgan:

“The Mellow Mushroom in Adams Morgan has been closed for at least 5 days. Something must be up!? Thanks for any info you can provide about one of the neighborhood’s best bars.”

“do you know anything about the closure of Mellow Mushroom on 18th? There was no sign on the door but it was mysteriously closed when I went yesterday”

Readers have passed on a number of rumors including a broken water heater but apparently there aren’t any notes or notices of violations on any of the doors or windows. Read More
