Saint Ex facade suffers damage

Saint Ex suffers facade damage and crews are currently trying to repair the fallen brick section. Sidewalk cafe customers must now enter from the T Street side of the building through the newly created doorway. Repairs should be completed in a few weeks. We believe that the chunk of bricks fell out because of the heavy traffic on 14th Street passing over broken pavement due to recent work by the utilities. Soon after the hole in the building was reported the city repaved the intersection of 14th and T and now there is less shaking goin' on. We look forward to a restored facade at one of our most popular eating and drinking establishments!

What happened to these 2 establishments? New Town and Art Soiree

I have received several inquiries about New Town Kitchen and Lounge and Art Soiree. The former was located at 1336 U Street and went out of business when the owner did not pay rent and was evicted. Neighbors had been complaining about the late night noise and amplified music that was disturbing them. ABRA had cited the establishment several times for noise violations. The latter was a proposed business that was to be located on the second and third floors of the space above Floors on !4th next to Room and Board. The deal fell apart when the partnership didn't make the necessary improvements to the space in a timely that space is now for lease.
