L Wine Lounge closes indefinitely

Sunday's brunch was the last service at L Wine Lounge & Urban Kitchen for at least the next few weeks. The midtown wine bar at 18th and L streets is closing indefinitely due to extensive repairs and safety issues with its HVAC system, said co-owner Marcus Marquez. A lawsuit between the L's owners and its general contractor is complicating matters, though both parties are currently in mediation, said Marquez.

Marquez anticipates that the L will re-open by September, by which time repairs and legal matters should be settled. In the meantime, the opening bash for Midtown Cocktail Week on Aug. 15 which was scheduled for the L is being moved, likely to Shady Lady. The L will continue to cater events, while its 28 employees look for work during the closure.

"The process is moving forward and I feel like we can re-open quickly," said Marquez. "I look forward to getting back in the community."
