End Of An Era - Phase 1 LGBT Venue Washington,DC
Like a roller coaster, Phase 1 has been on again and off again over the last few years.
Established in 1970, Phase 1 could very well have been the oldest Lesbian Bar in the country. Recently, we found that it is up for lease. See the listing with Blake Dickson Real Estate HERE.
According to older reports via Washington City Paper and The Washington Blade, sales were slipping. Patrons have commented that the reasoning was because the building was deteriorating, liquor pricing wasn't in-line, and the sound system needed a overhaul.
So long Phase 1. Maybe another LGBT player will scoop up the space?
