443 7th Street, NW

Back in March of 2014 a reader heard that Starbucks was considering selling alcohol. Turns out they were right! Some recent liquor license placards have been posted around town:

“A restaurant serving savory small plates and desserts meant for sharing, in addition to its coffee and breakfast offerings served all day, and offering wine & beer selections to its guest in a relaxing and comfortable environment.”


Here are the other locations:

1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW in south Dupont/Downtown

1700 Connecticut Avenue, NW in north Dupont

and 1810 Wisconsin Ave, NW in Georgetown and 5500 Connecticut Ave, NW in Chevy Chase.

We’ll be back on a normal schedule tomorrow, in the meantime:

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
