Anyone Know What’s Going On at Mocha Lounge?

“Dear PoP,

I walked past the Mocha Lounge yesterday and although it was closed, it looked really inviting- lots of pillows, armchairs, sort of a Euro cafe vibe (at least to my caffeine-starved brain). Do you know if they’re actually serving coffee there yet? Yelp says the bar area has opened but I’m more interested in the espresso.”

When I last wrote about Mocha Lounge, located at 944 Florida Ave, NW, a few commenters mentioned that it was open for a new year’s party. Sadly every time I’ve walked by during the day it has been closed. So for those that live nearby, what’s the scoop here?

    There was some activity in there when I strolled by there around midnight last Saturday. There was a few people milling around the bar area. I am curious too!

  • Shawn

    Would love to try this place! Hopefully we can find out the hours soon.

    I went into this place on Saturday night. I had a blast. Darnell, the owner, was awesome. Vick the bartender poured some excellent drinks. Overall, had a really great time. I dig the “living room” atmosphere. They said at this point, they’re open from 5-2, but they plan to do lunch service and be a full-service expresso bar on top of being a bar/lounge very soon, once everything gets worked out in the kitchen.

    It’s closed on Mondays. Try any other day after 5. It’s a cute place.

    The last time I talked to Darnell he was in the process of getting some premium coffee vendor to approve the spot as worthy of serving its coffee. Definitely worth checking out for a friendly, chill evening. But not yet really a mocha lounge.

    It was open on Friday night 7ish and atttempted to find a parking space to check it out and just gave up.
