D.C.’s U Street Music Hall Closing Due to COVID-19


U Street Music Hall—the Washington, D.C. venue opened by Jesse Tittsworth and Will Eastman in March 2010—is closing its doors. 

“When we closed our doors to the public this past March, just days before we were to celebrate our club’s 10-year anniversary, none of us could have imagined at the time that we would still be closed nearly seven months later with no return date in sight because of an unrelenting disease called COVID-19,” a statement from the venue reads.

“But due to the pandemic, mounting operational costs that never paused even while we were closed, and no clear timeline for when clubs like ours can safely reopen, we had no choice recently but to make this heartbreaking decision.” Find the statement below.
