A popular D.C. nightclub has had its liquor license reinstated less than two weeks after it was revoked.

The Alcoholic Beverage Control board made the decision to restore the Mood Lounge's liquor license Friday night after an all-day meeting. The move clears the way for the club to re-open its doors.

Mood Lounge's liquor license was suspended indefinitely January 3 in the wake of a double stabbing outside the club on December 30. At the time of the decision, D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans told News4 that he would push for Mood Lounge to be shut down, citing complaints from neighbors about the violence, noise, and trash that the club generated.
