One of U Street’s stalwart bars closes its doors this weekend. Stetson’s Famous Bar & Grill pours its last round of beers on Saturday. The divey “Tex-Mex saloon” has been a fixture in the neighborhood for 35 years.
Eater DC reports that Douglas Development purchased the building and liquor license, prompting the shutter. There’s no word yet on what will replace the bar. Drop by for a pre-Halloween party tonight with drink specials and free pizza–costumes encouraged–or on Saturday for a final brew and tune on the jukebox.
