1422 L Street, NW
At the end of last month we broke the news that things were not looking good for the Post Pub. The Post’s Tim Carman breathed an ounce of hope but sadly that didn’t work out. This morning the Post Pub writes:
“I am sad to inform our customers and friends that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related factors I am forced to close the Post Pub permanently. There’s simply no other option.
To all of our long time loyal customers, I can only say thank you!! More of you than I can name came in almost every day. You were the biggest part of the Post Pub family. A special thanks to the Washington Post employees who helped us pay a lot of bills over the years!
To my employees: I am sorry it ended so abruptly and that you must now look for employment elsewhere. After 43+ years in the same spot, it is hard for me to say goodbye. I am most proud of the fact that three people worked at the Pub for over 30 years and six people for over 20 years. That tells me it really was more than just a business, it was a family. Read More

“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.

2121 K Street, NW
Thanks to Ethan for sending Saturday: “Signage from Bobby’s Burger Bar on K street being removed”
Bobby’s Burger Palace opened on K Street in August 2011.
At the moment this location is still listed as temporarily closed on their website. Obviously the sign coming down is never a good sign, updates when/if the closure is announced as permanent.
Thanks to MB for sending early this morning.
Thanks to Scott Johnson (@essjaydc IG) for sending.
