A Northeast D.C. nightclub, shuttered after a man was stabbed there last week, has banned a go-go act because of violence at its shows, according to official reports on the incident.
Residents of the Shaw neighborhood in Northwest hailed the arrival of an upscale tavern that would rival those in the neighboring U Street corridor and in Columbia Heights. But a month from its opening, Shaw's Tavern last week closed its doors after several missteps in its efforts to obtain permits from the city.
The District's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration again is helping nightclubs prevent or reduce violence and other problems by providing subsidies to hire off-duty police officers for security.
People aboard a party bus shot at after leaving a Northeast strip club last week were earlier involved in a fight at the club — the latest in a series of incidents there that include a stripper being hit in the face with a champagne bottle during a tussle between a patron and the entourage of rapper Lil' Wayne, according to police reports.
