Millie & Al's in Adams Morgan

Millie & Al’s isn’t ready to pour its last Jell-O shot in Adams Morgan yet, Borderstan has learned.

The 52-year-old dive bar at 2440 18th St. NW isn’t “closing anytime soon,” a bartender there told us last night. But the owner of the Adams Morgan institution has put the building that houses it up for sale, he confirmed. He declined to elaborate.

The Washington Business Journal reported earlier this week that the bar likely would shut down, noting that Millie & Al’s real estate broker said the bar’s building would be “delivered vacant.”

On Twitter last night, a Millie & Al’s representative attacked the report that it would close.

A post on the bar’s Facebook page added: “Business as usual. We are not closed. Who started that rumor?”

Millie & Al’s owner Barbra Shapiro wasn’t immediately available to comment.
