BREAKING NEWS: Cafe Japone Closes

Cafe Japone, the Japanese karaoke dive on P Street in Dupont, closed its doors for good in late September/early October [10/15 EVENING UPDATE: Multiple tipsters report that the bar may have closed earlier in September; I actually made a rare visit late on August 30th, so it closed after that].  Open since 1986, the bar’s owners surrendered its liquor license on September 26th, requesting its cancellation immediately; ABRA granted this request on October 9th. A Twitter user took a photo of the bar’s dismantling earlier this month, while a Yelper said the bar was evicted due to “rat and sewage problems.”  Calls to Japone’s listed phone number were greeted by a message that the number has been disconnected.  More details will be added as real journalists report on this issue.
