New Lounge Takes Shape in Former Indulj Space on U Street

Amsterdam Cafe and Lounge

A new lounge is taking shape on U Street.

Signage for a new business called Amsterdam Lounge was recently installed on and above the windows of the former Indulj space at 1208 U Street NW.

Though little information could be gleaned from the storefront — and the business does not appear to have applied for a liquor license — a Craigslist hiring ad from last month appears to reveal some details. According to the ad, the lounge seeks to hire someone to manage a restaurant and bar that will serve food, drinks and cocktails. Another job posting on Indeed.com indicates the new eatery may also serve coffee and espresso.

The forthcoming Amsterdam Lounge was contacted via e-mail this morning but has not yet responded.

    Please God! Anything but another trashy hiphop club.

      Yeah! God forbid there might be black people in our historically black neighborhood.

      /sarcasm (in case that wasn’t obvious)

        Really? Who replaced “Dukes” that had great jazz and great food with Indulj? Are you saying black people don’t like jazz?
