Fellow We Love DC author Dave Levy heard word that Porter’s in Dupont (located at 1207 19th Street) was being shut down so I ran outside my office to sneak and peak.
That’s when I ran into the movers. All outdoor and indoor furniture was being manhandled into a moving truck upon my arrival just 10 minutes ago.
We are currently awaiting confirmation from a source providing additional information that the moving truck is related to the bar’s final days at its Dupont location.
Look for more on this story as it becomes available.
Update, 3:33 pm: Porter’s is officially closed for the time being. Ownership respectfully declined further comment. However, Porter’s does hope to re-open in the future. (Photo above taken at 3:27 pm via mobile phone.)
Update, 2:57 pm: Three phone calls made to Porter’s within the last hour were not answered. All calls received a busy signal.
