City Shuts Down “Men’s Parties/Wrestling Club” at 14th & Corcoran


A man died early on the morning of Sunday, Oct. 4 at 1618-A 14th Street NW, site of "Men's Parties" and a non-profit "Wrestling Club." The city has now officially closed it. (Luis Gomez Photos.)

It was my impression that the “Men’s Parties/Wrestling Club” at 1618-A 14th Street had already shut down after the death of a patron last October. It was open for some time afterward, though. Now, it appears it is now official. Saw this brief at WaPo DC Wire, which is based on a news release by DC Attorney General Peter Nickles:

The District has shut down several health spas, social clubs and massage parlors that officials found to be associated with prostitution and illegal sexually-oriented activities, according to a news release from the office of Attorney General Peter Nickles.

Included on the list is “Wrestling Club at 1618 14th Street NW.” You may remember that the Men’s Parties/Wrestling Club rose to local fame when a man apparently fell down a flight of stairs and then died last October early on a Sunday morning. The story was picked up from Borderstan and ran… well, all over the place, beyond DC.
