List of DC Spots That Have Closed During Pandemic


As predicted by many in the industry, the pandemic as well as the associated restrictions have led restaurants/bars to announce (or otherwise indicate) that they are closely permanently (at least in their current form and location). Although some of these spots have explicitly said they’re not closing due to the pandemic (see *), including anyways as you never really know (bars that announcing closing in advance before pandemic was an issue are not included). Note that this Eater DC list was consulted, though I supplemented (dates it opened in parentheses). Booze-serving spots in the District only (so don’t @ me with Peregrine or a random Subway)

    My friends and I have been regulars at the Post Pub for the last 20 years, we’ll miss her dearly,…
