One Less Dance Floor In Washington DC; Cobalt Nightclub Closes It’s Doors Permanently
One more nightlife destination in Washington D.C. has shuttered. Cobalt (located in the heart of Washington D.C.’s “Gayborhood”) is closed, effective immediately, with no closing party or events announced.
Owner Eric Little posted on Facebook late yesterday the following post:
“It’s no secret that the building that housed Cobalt (1639 R St NW) and the adjacent property recently sold.
With the combination of the sale of the buildings, the start of demolition, costly infrastructure repairs and upgrades that we would need to shoulder to remain open for the short remainder of our lease (without an opportunity to extend the lease) along with a slow decline in sales we decided it was the right time to close the business to focus on our other businesses and some personal family needs.
