Collapsed Building Strip Club Gets ANC6E Valet Parking Endorsement

Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Shaw took a request by The Cloakroom (476 K Street NW) off of the agenda for its May 6 meeting. It seemed a reasonable move, since the the strip club's building had suffered a spectacular mid-day collapse only four days before. It is unlikely they will be doing business anytime soon.

However, The Cloakroom is apparently moving forward under the assumption they might be back in business someday.

"They don't know if they will be there or not," an ANC6E Commissioner said.

Before the collapse, the club requested ANC6E consider endorsing a request to operate valet parking on K Street, at the corner of 5th Street. The request, if approved, will take one public parking space, next to a fire hydrant, out of use.

The club and the parking space are in the ANC district 6E05. The Commissioner is Marge Maceda. Maceda told ANC6E she was in favor of granting the valet parking endorsement to the Cloakroom. She also said people in the area had no objection to the request.

ANC6E voted unanimously to endorse the request. It will now to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) for final approval.

No one at the meeting identified themselves as working for or connected to The Cloakroom. No commissioner asked if representatives of The Cloakroom were present. However, as soon as the endorsement passed, three or four people in the back of the room got up and left. I don't know if they were connected to The Cloakroom.
