End of an Era

Prince of Petworth reports that Asylum, long time punk bar in Adams Morgan, will be no more. For years, Asylum was a great place to grab a good burger and a cheap beer, and probably the only decent place in Adams Morgan to do so. Last September, its owners succumbed to the slow march of gentrification, and opened up a decent-for-DC BBQ joint, Smoke and Barrel, where the upstairs used to be. Now the downstairs will be renovated to match the upstairs -- from black and spiky to brown and oaky. RIP, Asylum.
