Rock & Roll Hotel Closes due to Financial Struggles


The Rock & Roll Hotel, located on Northeast D.C.’s H Street, announced that it has closed its doors as of Monday because it had financial issues and failed to compete with rivals.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Rock & Roll Hotel will cease operations effective immediately, Monday March 2, 2020. All shows and events are cancelled,” the nightclub’s management said in a press release posted on its website and social media accounts.

The famous music venue’s sudden decision stemmed from a three-year struggle it experienced, including rising costs of operation, increasing number of rival businesses and dropping ticket prices and bar sales, according to the statement.

“While Rock & Roll Hotel did all we could to adjust with the times, it was not enough to stay a float and hence, we sadly join a growing number of small businesses and music venues by closing our doors permanently. Rock & Roll Hotel gives our heart and soul of thanks and appreciation over the last 14 years to all the employees (past and present), fans, and H St local businesses and residents who without them, we would have never made it this far,” the owners wrote.

They also encouraged those disappointed and saddened by the sudden closure to “stay positive, and continue to support the many music venues and small businesses in D.C.”

Since it opened in 2006 in the H Street Corridor of D.C., the place hosted original bands from around the United States, and the world.
