The B Spot DC will be located at 1123 Pennsylvania Avenue SE (between Fragers and Mi Vecinidad). It’s Web site says:

The B Spot DC is a multi-purpose Art Gallery, Juice Bar and Tea House located in the cultural corridor of Eastern Market on Pennsylvania Avenue in South-East Washington, District of Columbia. The facility capitalizes on the community’s deep-rooted artistic milieu to provide exposure to varied expressions of the arts in a luxurious setting and intimate atmosphere. Situated in a backdrop of beautiful art pieces, – paintings, sculptures, mixed media collage and fine art photography, our patrons partake of a diverse selection of international coffees, hot and iced tea blends, exotic fruit smoothies, fresh vegetable juices and enriched beverages while sampling on gourmet appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, light fare, and desserts.

The B Spot DC utilizes a three-prong service approach that integrates:

(1) a gallery of select work for sale by emerging and established artists ,
(2) a Juice Bar and Tea House offering refreshments and light fare, and
(3) an open stage offering live entertainment and fine arts exposure and education.

The open stage is visible to all patrons and provides professional live entertainment from a repertoire of artists, including book and poetry reading, spoken word, short theater and musical performances.

Sounds awesome!

    Capitol Hill keeps getting better! I’m really looking forward to this.

    Hopefully they’ll actually be open during business hours unlike the crepe place that was there before.

    EXCITING news. What a great addition to an already great neighborhood.

  • This sounds cool, but I am worried that this is just not a good place for any sort of business that requires lots of foot traffic.

    Sounds patently unsustainable. But if Teaism can do it –

      This doesn’t sound anything like Teaism– more like a gallery with live performances and nice things to eat and drink. It might work, although I could just as easily see it failing. The concept is not that cohesive, and it’s too far east for the Eastern Market and Barracks Row crowds to stumble across. But with some good avertising and a strong line-up of performances I think it could do very well!

      On the subject of tea, does anyone else wish we had a true tea room that does afternoon teas and high teas? I think one would do well on Capitol Hill.
