Yes, There's a Bar Called the Handsome Cock, and They're Being Cock-Blocked by Their Landlord

A bar called the Handsome Cock has opened on U Street, and the place's landlord is none too happy about the name. Washington City Paper has a hilarious story about the fight that's going on between bar owners Tolga Erbatur and Amir Sahri (also of The Codmother), and their landlord. They're being told to take down their signage because the name is porn-affiliated, as the landlord puts it.

As a compromise, they're painting over the outdoor signage, but they plan to keep the bar's name and its indoor signs. There's a mural on the wall with the bar's name on it, too.

Handsome Cock has a limited bar food menu, cheap beers, whiskey and board games. It's in the former Touchdown space at 1334 U Street NW.
