Parklife DC is sad to learn the Rock and Roll Hotel, a pioneer in the redevelopment of DC’s Atlas District, has closed its doors forever immediately, starting today.
In a statement published to social media, the Rock and Roll Hotel said:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Rock & Roll Hotel will cease operations effective immediately, March 2, 2020. All shows and events are cancelled.
Over the last 3 years, Rock & Roll Hotel experienced rising operating costs, an increase in the number of music venues, and the decrease in ticket and bar sales. While Rock & Roll Hotel did all we could to adjust with the times, it was not enough to stay a float and hence we sadly join a growing number of small businesses and music venues by closing our doors permanently.
Rock & Roll Hotel gives our heart and soul of thanks and appreciation over the last 14 years to all the employees (past and present), fans, and H St local businesses and residents who without them, we would have never made it this far.
While many will feel a sense of sadness, disappointment, or anger with this announcement, we ask that you stay positive, and continue to support the many music venues and small businesses in DC.
Stay dedicated to the discovery and recovery of great music!
