Sangria Cafe Closing at 3636 16th Street, NW – Will Host a Charity Send Off Sept. 14th

3636 16th Street, NW

From the events calendar:

After more than 10 years serving Columbia Heights and the residents of the Woodner Apartments, Sangria Cafe is closing its doors for good. If you’ve been before, you know the Sangria Cafe as one of the city’s most unique dive bars. If you’ve never had the pleasure, now’s your last chance!

The bar’s owners, Victor and Elizabeth, have created a welcoming and friendly atmosphere – and in one last gesture of community pride have offered to use one of their last nights in business to benefit Ayuda by donating 10% of ALL sales ALL night long. Ayuda has been helping the immigrant community in DC thrive for nearly 40 years so come out and show your support for drinking and non-profit organizations.

Help us send Sangria Cafe off right while also raising money for a great cause!

We judged the Sangria Cafe back in July 2009. Tony gave us a tour (lots of photos of the interior here) back in May 2010. We recently discussed our favorite no frills bars here. No word yet on who will be taking over the space, updates as more info becomes available.
