XII's Liquor License Suspended Indefinitely [UPDATE: They Can Reopen]

A reader sent in an image of this notice posted at XII (LINK PLAYS MUSIC 1123 H Street). This follows immediately upon the heels of Chief Lanier imposing a 96 hour emergency license suspension after an altercation occurred at the club & a man was stabbed. The stabbing took place in the early morning hours of March 8th.

Good riddance as far as I'm concerned.

A note for those of you reading FT at work - the XII website has sound when you open it. Always embarrassing in my cube.

Of course, here's the implied racism I've come to expect from this blog.

Anon. 9:49 - This has nothing to do with race. There are numerous minority-owned businesses on H St. that do not cause the problems in the neighborhood that XII has. If I am mistaken, please name one.

there will always be a business that have more problems than any other businesses, but what we shoud be concerned is when does the problems get excessive.

so far, this is the 2nd stabbing. Sticky Rice has 1 stabbing, and it's an operating business. Does 2 put it over the limit? Fights in a bar may chase out customers, but it's a bar. Fights happen in a lot of bars, and they are allowed to operate.

i am not a huge fan of African-Americans, but I don't think anything excessive has happened at 12 yet.

If you want an example of trolling, look not further than 10:40.

Inked, is there a valid reason to have comments when posts like the above are what you get? Do us all a favor and please either get rid of comments altogether, or require registration.

i, for one, am interested in the dynamics of the posting on this blog. so... i'd like for some of the trolling to stay, believe it or not.

every village needs an idiot...

is anon's 10:40 really trolling. prior to that person's comment, this thread has already begun to talk about neighborhood business and minorities.

removing comments just cause they are distasteful and probably coming from an idiot doesn't make it unworthy to read

aside from anon 10:40 preference on races, are the statements true? those are the only problems at X11 so far, and the community wants it to close?

something we also should consider is that if X11 closes, does everyone think that its clientele is going to spend their evenings at home?

if X11 closes, we are all going to meet our neighbors at some of the places that we enjoy dining.

No there have been other incidents (including an all female bathroom beating w/issues of how the bar responded). But I believe most neighborhood complaints stem from noise issues.

How many of ya'll have even ever been in to xll?

I've been 5+ times and always felt safe.

Other than the ridiculous last racial line, I thought 10:40 made some great points.

i don't live around the immediate vicinity of XII. walking by X11 on a weekend night, it does get "bumping." As do some of the other bars in its vicinity. I suppose the noise issues of X11 impacts those who live near X11 than those who do not.

It must really suck to live near the Beer Garden, but the Beer Garden doesn't play hop-hip, r and b, or whatever X11 plays.

1 - Thanks for the heads up about the websites music!
2 - Living right around the corner from XII I am stoked to see it leave. I dont care that they are playing music loudly. I care that as soon as people leave they scream and fight outside my window. I care that I have to call the cops when patrons run eachother over with cars outside my house and then try to drag said victim by the hair (happened two weeks ago, the person who got run over dropped pictures she took there that night...turns out she was run over by the people she came with). Since they closed my nights have been quieter. Winning

Wow.. hard to believe the day has come. We also live around the corner. The outrageous stories this place creates, the mayhem, the wild fights... It is hard to imagine we have outlasted them, we were sure we'd be gone before the 2 am girls-fights.We have the best one-liners overheard from the patrons heading into and out of XII, all completely unshareable. Phew.

Definitely DO NOT close the comments section of FT! Far and away the best part of the website. It's like observing a sociological petri dish.
