That’s what two of The Proud Boys’ favorite DC spots have decided, by closing their doors to them. Harrington Hotel, D.C.’s longest operating hotel, and Harry’s Bar have decided to close during the upcoming protests.
One of the issues for Harry’s Bar, has been the fines they’ve received, due to some members of the Proud Boys ignoring social distancing and refusing to wear masks. There have been reports if Harry’s Bar receives more citations, it could lead to a review of their liquor license.
