Seven Bars That Helped the U Street Corridor Thrive Will Close Indefinitely Next Month

El Rey: The taqueria and Mexican bar brought in customers who wanted to sip margaritas in a garden enclosed by shipping containers.

In a statement the Hilton brothers sent to WCP, then released on social media , the bar owners reference the difficulty of restructuring their businesses to adjust to shifting restrictions enforced by the city to halt the spread of COVID-19.

Under Phase 2 of the District’s reopening plan, bars and restaurants are allowed to serve customers indoors at half capacity as long as they’re seated and tables are spaced out at least 6 feet.

The Brixton recently partnered with chef Erik Bruner-Yang’s Foreign National group to bring Coin Mezze, a Lebanese operation full of kebabs and pizza-like manakeesh flatbread, to the bar.

They opened two more French restaurants in Northern Virginia in the past year: Parc de Ville in Fairfax’s Mosaic District development and Cafe Colline in Arlington.

Eric Hilton, a member of electronic music outfit Thievery Corporation, was also a founding partner at former Dupont institution Eighteenth Street Lounge, which has permanently closed after a 25-year run.
