Washington’s “207 Night Club” Keeps Local Music, Business In The City

The 207 Night Club in Washington is nearing its six month anniversary, and owners Mike and Angela Jacobs say they’re not slowing down. Angela Jacobs says Washington loses money when residents travel to nearby cities like Iowa City and Cedar Rapids for nighttime entertainment.  She and her husband opened the music and entertainment venue to keep Washington’s revenue in town, and also to bring local and larger city attractions to the local community.  Mike Jacobs says the areas “mid 20s crowd” has taken advantage of the business, and is beginning to think of Washington as an area for local music.  Tonight The 207 features Cedar Rapids acoustic guitarist/vocalist Matt Volkmann, and Washington area musician Henry Eicher.  For more information, visit The 207 Night Club on Facebook.
