Beveragemania Temporarily Reduces Hours


Received via email:


Until further notice, BEVERAGEMANIA will be closed by 11:00 am everyday. Anthony, Leonard and I have had to travel to New Orleans to tend to the damages to our properties due to Hurricane GUSTAV. Unfortunately, we never really recovered from the damages caused by Hurricane KATRINA. It is because of what we witnessed in the aftermath of KATRINA that we are compelled and feel that it is our duty to lend a helping hand to those most affected by GUSTAV. We are grateful that GUSTAV did not create the same devastation of KATRINA.

Unfortunately, Al and Donnie cannot operate the store 24/7. Trevon is back in school during the days and my mother is still a full-time employee of Howard University. However, we refuse to abandon our coffee (and espresso) drinkers.

Al will open the shop from
5:00 am – 11:00 am

Please forgive us for the inconvenience. We hope to see everyone again as soon as we return.

Thank you for your business.

  • I think this would be a good time for someone to post their address, for those of us who have never heard of this place. I’d love to grab a cup of coffee and leave a generous tip…

  • They’re located on Upshur just off of 9th, on the same block as Domku, around the corner from the post office. These folks are great. I sometimes just swing by for a cup of to-go coffee when I’m walking the dog, and they’ll even bring it out to me so I don’t have to tie the dog up and go in. I wish them the best of luck in New Orleans, and I encourage everyone to check their place out.

  • Yes I can’t say it enough, we LOVE the people at Beveragemania! We wish them the best!

  • Hmm.. do their (don’t get me wrong) terrible experiences with HURRICANES (sorry, could not resist) also explain that horrific “we have something to hide” glass on the windows? 😀

  • The frosted glass on the windows might have something to do with the fact that they sell ice cream. Indeed, behind this frosted glass is an ice cream cooler. Without the frosting on the glass that cooler would be subject to the full-on force of the sun which on that block of Upshur is rather unrelenting.

    This complaint has been made over and over about Beveragemania but I don’t recall anyone making the same point about Wonderland or even RedRocks, whose windows are on the 2nd floor.

    (sorry, could not resist) Beveragemania rocks and their front door is not frosted – walk through it and find some fine people and tasty beverages.

  • anon 12:57, i think beveragemania is great and i love their shakes, but i still think that the frosted glass looks cheesy and uninviting. curb appeal is important, in fact it’s very important and beveragemania as well as many other establishments struggling in the area could use some help. why not look into some of the many programs that help small businesses make facade and other improvements…
