A popular Foggy Bottom-area bar where five people were stabbed last month will shut its doors permanently, according to an ANC chairperson.
Five people were stabbed at McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon in the 2400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue just after 12:30 a.m. Dec. 27.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier ordered McFadden's closed following the stabbing. The bar's liquor license was suspended by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, which said McFadden's "presents an imminent danger to the health and safety of the public."
According to ANC 2A chairperson Patrick Kennedy, the bar will permanently close and physical assets will be sold. Kennedy added the bar had intended to close at New Year's anyway.
