DC’s first Pinkberry frozen yogurt is located at 1213 Connecticut Ave, NW in the former Pampillonia Jewelers space south of Lucky Bar in Dupont. To celebrate their opening on Friday – tonight (Thurs. May 5) from 6-10pm they’ll be serving free Pinkberry frozen yogurts to all who stop by.

General Manager Chris Morse

Starting May 6, they’ll be open Sun-Wed 11 AM – 12 AM and Thur-Sat 11 AM – 2 AM.

And for those interested in some future plans – they’ll be opening 2-3 more stores as unique retail spaces become available. Two neighborhoods that they are likely to expand into are Georgetown and Logan Circle.

I was able to check out the Dupont space Wed. afternoon and snap some photos.

Lots more photos after the jump.

The floors are wild

    Finally, a Pinkberry! I was wondering when the D.C. area would catch on to the frozen yogurt trend.

    • matt

          we might be too far south.

        • matt

          well, with some of the people who comment on this blog, one can never tell.

        • KR

          My intent was sarcastic, thanks AGNC (that’s an earnest thanks :-))

  • Anony

    Pinkberry is so much better in NYC.

  • Bem Baina

    I hate all the knock-off frozen yogurt spots in DC.I am so excited that Pinkberry if FINALLY here in DC. Yay!

  • fireman

    that floor is never ever going to be clean. looks cool though.

  • LCM

    mmm free fro-yo! I can’t wait to try it! I love tangy sweet and mr. yogato but I am not a fan of fro-zen-yo. This one looks really good in the pics!

  • Blah

    I’ts frozen yogurt. The fact that it would be “better in NYC” is silly.

    • Sir Douchy

      Exactly. It might be more expensive in NYC or come with a side of ‘tude, but I doubt that the franchise provided materials would differ between stores.

        I’m sure they were joking.

    • PG

      You need to read dcist to get the joke.

  • PCat

    I’ve had Pinkberry in California. I much prefer Mr. Yogato on 17th St.

  • A

    From what I’ve heard PinkBerry is the gold-standard of frozen yogurt. I’m a fan of Tangysweet, but not as much of the others in DC (Frozenyo, YogenFruz, and sorry, Mr Yogato) so I’m really excited for this.

  • PG

    The frogurt is also cursed. But it comes with a free topping!

    • EG


    • D’oh

      Do the toppings contain potasium benzoate?

  • rabble

    I’ll be in search of some “pinkberry” at the bar tonight

    • jch

      giggity giggity

    Pinkberry is The Worst. They moved in down the block from me when I was in New York and attracted swarms of obnoxious hipster college girls who were apparently dying to spend $10 of their parents’ cash on sour froyo and freezer-burned fruit. Nasty.
