The Reef Permanently Closes

August 29, 2013

Less than a week after reopening its doors, The Reef announced today that they’ll be closing shop permanently. The popular Adams Morgan bar was temporarily shut down and had its liquor license suspended after a security guard allegedly stabbed two patrons. Although a compromise was recently reached between The Reef and the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to reopen the business, it seems as though a combination of other factors led the decision. The Post reports that The Reef will cease operation immediately. Owner Brian Harrison told the Post that “due to recent events, we’re unable to operate,“ and that “there’s 10 different reasons why this is happening.”
