New Coffee House and Bar Lounge Coming to 715 Florida Ave, NW


A new coffee house and bar, The Independent, is coming to Shaw. It is exciting to see new places continue to sprout up east on U Street/Florida Ave. Many of you will surely recognize the location as the former home to renowned urologist Dr. Edward H. Saunders.


The details from the alcohol permit sound very promising, particularly a significant summer garden. The alcohol permit says:

“Coffee House, bar lounge, 199 seats and total occupancy of 235 on first floor and storage on first and basement. Summer Garden with 75 seats and a total occupancy of 90.”

Think it’ll be like a Tryst-like establishment?
