Sign Goes Up for Bar Number 9
Or is it Bar Number Nine? Anyway… although it is not ready yet, Bar Number9 will go into the space formerly occupied by Halo/Mova at 1435 P Street NW. Number 9 owners Ed Bailey and John Guggenmos were part owners of Halo before it became Mova, and are also the owners of Town Danceboutique at 8th and U Streets NW. Mova owner Babak Movahedi told Borderstan during in January that he was planning to reopen somewhere in the U Street corridor. See P Street: What Replaces McCormick at 1460? Bar #9 at 1435? from March 20.
