What in the name of Larry Craig is going on here? Remington’s, a long-time establishment on Capitol Hill at 639 Pennsylvania Ave. SE and iconic gay bar, is closing up shop, Prince of Petworth reports.
Remington’s will pour its last shot on Monday during happy hour, an abrupt ending for a place that’s been around for three decades.
The one-time country-western themed dive joins a long list of old favorites on the Hill that are going the way of the dodo, such as the Li’l Pub and Pour House, and a list of endangered spots by the bankruptcy proceedings swirling around Barracks Row Entertainment, whose holdings include the Hawk n’ Dove, Boxcar Tavern and Chesapeake Room, among others.
Make no mistake: This is the global warming of Capitol Hill drinking spots: Rapid change followed by unknown future.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
