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 (as well as Washingtonian), though I supplemented (dates it opened in parentheses). Note: Many spots have noted they will be closing indefinitely for the winter, I’m not including them and I don’t know why Eater/Washingtonian will if they aren’t listing the spots that have been closed the whole time]
