That Patio at Sahra? It Lacks a Permit
Sahra is located on the northeast corner of 12th & H
A somewhat bizarre bit of news went out on Twitter today. Apparently, local hookah lounge Sahra, doesn't have a permit for their outdoor patio. The outdoor space is very popular, particularly on weekends. I must admit to feeling a bit of shock at this news. I had simply assumed that they had a public space permit. As a result of of this issue, the patio closed immediately, and cannot be used again until they secure a permit.
Sahra got a visit from a @DDOTDC inspector today, who immediately issued a stop work order for having a patio w/o public space permit.
