Cue Bar Opens

After a weekend of recovering from holiday parties and revelry, I figured what better way to start off the week than with talk of yet more places to test your liver's resilience?

It appears as if the Cue Bar on U Street between 11th and 12th is now open. I wrote about it back in August but lost hope that it would ever open after the "coming soon" sign was taken down and the place looked abandoned. But lo' and behold, I noticed a chalkboard out front this weekend that proclaimed the place is now open. All I know is that it's a pool hall. Anyone out there know more?

The new bar takes the place of Between Friends, which closed last year after someone was murdered inside and after "ANC Commissioner-elect Dee Hunter discovered that the club was operating while bankrupt," according to a DCist post about troubled clubs.

Meanwhile, according to's Nightlife Agenda, Felix's Spy Lounge is back after an extended absence following a fire in March and Science Club has opened near 19th and L streets.
