Via Aaron Morrissey, the editor in chief of DCist, there’s word that the rumor is true: Cafe Nema and MoMo’s are closing next Monday, the 11thTuesday, the 12th. They have signs on the door. Bummer. No word on what will be replacing these spaces. I encourage everyone to stop by and visit these places before they’re gone for good.

Cafe Nema is one of the pioneers of the revitalization of U street, it opened in 1995. With the loss of Cafe Nema, we’re losing what U street has been.

MoMo’s had been open since 2007, and is a popular sports bar.
