HR-57 Closes Its Doors on H Street NE

H Street Life

A few weeks ago, Tony Puesan, the owner of HR-57 (, 1007 H Street NE), shared with me that he was closing his establishment to pursue a larger space in NW DC.  The performances on the weekend of August 9th were the last held at the H Street NE location.  Puesan remarked that he had enjoyed HR-57’s run on H Street, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a spacious venue in NW that would allow a higher degree of audience interaction.  The new venture will likely not only feature jazz acts, but also country, blues, and other types of music.  HR-57 will maintain a “virtual” presence in NE as well, partnering with a local university to offer outdoor concerts and other events.
