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.
