In May 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a bill that made it legal for the first time since 1917 to sell hard liquor to patrons standing at bars in the District of Columbia. Shortly thereafter many bars opened and students, senators & secretaries streamed through the doors of establishments such as Clyde’s, Mr. Smith’s, Mr. Henry’s, Chadwick’s, The Cellar Door, The Bayou, Blues Alley, Champions & Martin’s Tavern just to mention a few.
