A bar near U Street caught fire earlier this afternoon.

More than half a dozen fire trucks were spotted fighting a fire at Climax (900 Florida Ave. NW)  around 1:10 p.m. today. Smoke could be seen pouring from several of the bar’s windows.

No injures were reported in the fire, according to D.C. Fire and EMS.

    So Climax caught fire?! The sexual innuendo jokes write themselves.

  2. good riddance, that place was a sh** pit and a scab on the neighborhood. the neighboring residents had an 18 month suit against climax’s owner with DCRA and ABRA because climax couldn’t be bothered to turn down their music at 3am on week nights. good bye solomon hope you find another location, maybe in a dumpster
