Last night, June 10, the Mount Vernon Triangle CID joined owners Carlos and May-May Horcasitas, internationally acclaimed Chef Richard Sandoval, and Director of the Mayor’s Office of Nightlife & Culture Shawn Townsend, and dozens of supporters to celebrate the arrival of dLeña Roja. The dark, candle-lit cocktail bar covered in brown leather seats and stocked with 250 tequilas officially opens today, June 11, coinciding with the District of Columbia’s full re-opening also happening today.

The underground lounge is accessible by stairwell via dLeña restaurant at 476 K Street NW or through a private entrance on 5th Street NW.
