DC Eagle To Close

Washington DC’s Eagle nightclub will close at the end of the month as its owners seek a new location.

Eagle manager Ted Clements said the bar plans to hold a closing party on Nov. 25, with the hope that the popular establishment will have lined up a new location shortly before or after that date. “We’re trying to find a building,” he told the Blade. “This will be the fourth location. We keep getting pushed around from the development in this area. We’ve been in a four-block radius for the past 40 years.” The Douglas Development Corporation, one of the city’s largest real estate developers, has announced plans to build a new high-rise office building with retail businesses on the 600 block of New York Ave., N.W., where the Eagle and other businesses are now located. The site is one block away from the Washington Convention Center.
