A popular Northwest D.C. bar had its liquor license suspended following a violent stabbing incident last weekend.
Five people were stabbed at McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon in the 2400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue just after 12:30 a.m. last Saturday morning.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier ordered McFadden's closed for at least 96 hours following the stabbing.
Tuesday, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board suspended the bar's liquor license, adding McFadden's "presents an imminent danger to the health and safety of the public."
The bar's owners took to Facebook Tuesday, announcing anyone who purchased tickets for a New Year's Eve party should contact management.
