The Bar Louie in Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown, known for its quality happy hours, has closed its doors due to financial troubles.
Located inside Gallery Place at 701 Seventh Street NW, the place used to be a popular and affordable spot for the District’s residents to hang out after attending events at Capital One Arena.
The Texas-based business recently filed for bankruptcy protection, which prompted the owners to shut down a third of their 134 spots around the country, according to Eater D.C.
The D.C. location used to offer appetizers, flatbreads, burgers, salads, sandwiches, plates and desserts, as well as American bar cuisine and handcrafted cocktails, handcrafted signature martinis and microbrews.
Its social atmosphere was also highly acclaimed by locals who are regulars of D.C.’s night life.
Bar Louie in Crystal City, Arlington, VA, is still operating.
