Jimmy Valentine's Remains Open

Earlier this week we mentioned that complaints had been lodged about Atlas District dive Jimmy Valentine's Lonely Hearts Club and that its liquor license was in jeopardy.

Mount Pleasant speakeasy Last Exit, attached to the basement of Tonic, finally opened officially last night and The Post's Fritz Hahn was there to have a look. He calls it a "very promising" "date spot" and notes that the vibe — old-fashioned cocktails in a homey, laid-back atmosphere — differs greatly from Tonic's more dude-centric beer-and-wings fare.

Penthouse Pool Club, which we're assuming is not affiliated with the gentlemen's magazine of the same name, has applied for a liquor license in the space above Vida Futura Fitness on U Street. The application calls it an "American-style tavern" and is interestingly registered to Capitol City Brewing Company, LLC. [PoP]
