DC9 resumes full hours, Toledo Lounge sells and Commonwealth will close
February is turning out to be an interesting month for purveyors of D.C. nightlife.
Adams Mill Bar and Grill closed its doors over the weekend, perhaps to be replaced with a Panera Bread chain restaurant. A handful of similar updates followed today:
- DC9 back to full operating hours.The Washington City Paper reported that Little Ethiopia's DC9 has returned to full operating hours following a Tuesday ruling by the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration. The club had been operating under a number of restrictions since the Oct. 15, 2010 death of 27-year-old Ali Ahmed Mohammed.
- CommonWealth gastropub will close. The Washington Business Journal reported that the Columbia Heights bar and eatery will close at the end of the month and will be reopened under a different name.
- Toledo Lounge sold to other Adams Morgan bar owners. The owners of Ventnor Sports Cafe and The Black Squirrel have acquired another bar along the 18th Street NW strip, according to Prince of Petworth.
- And now for some good news. Also from Prince of Petworth, a new bar and grill, Khan's, will be opening up on the corner of 12th and H St, NE, by mid-March.
