    This is not good news for Georgetown — from its website,, this place appears to be a very late night night-club playing loud (bad) music and emphasizing alchohol (tables appear to “sell” for the purchase of a certain amount of bottles of liquor). There seems to be very little reference to dining or any daytime activity. This will NOT add any elegance to the neighborhood or practical benefit for residents. I hope this rumor is not true and that we will instead get a nicer facility for all-around use in the space that will help upgrade the area and be a place most of us would like to go for lunch, dinner, et cetera.

    Wow, I didn’t realize the Modern was still open. I walked by it recently and it looked completely closed. The website sure makes it look like it’s still around, so I really don’t know.

    I agree that a night club is not a good candidate for that spot. But it sounds like that’s not what’s being considered. It sounds like they want to open a high end ice cream parlor:

    Although that would be a waste of the tavern license.

    At this point it could be anything. I’m just glad that it doesn’t sound like T-Mobile is interested anymore…

    Actually, according to Carol Joynt’s blog, which had you linked to, the original rumor was Modern — but there is also a rumor re Serendipity, which would be much better, agreed! But some think that the fact that the former location of Modern is shuttered suggests they are moving into Nathan’s, which, as you note, would make sense as regards the liquor license. In any event, if they are thinking about it, I hope they get the memo that residents would not welcome such a change!
