J. Chocolatier Coming, Groovy Moving into former Monkeys’ Uncle space by Eastern market

321 7th Street, SE

We got a little retail shuffle going on in the strip by Eastern Market. Groovy is moving next door into the first floor of the former Monkeys’ Uncle space and a new chocolate shop – J. Chocolatier (formerly located in Georgetown) will be taking over the second floor (just on weekends to start.) J. Chocolatier has been popping up out front of 321 7th St, SE the last few weekends. Their website says:

“J. Chocolatier was founded by Jane Morris in early 2007. Jane always loved baking, but began experimenting with chocolate after being told by her allergist that she was allergic to it. Determined to continue enjoying this perfect food, she began eating smaller quantities of the finest chocolate she could find — making every bite count.

She soon began handcrafting truffles and taking them to friends, family and coworkers. At their urging, she founded J. Chocolatier and sold her chocolates to a few exclusive shops and wine bars in the DC area. In 2009 Jane opened the J. Chocolatier retail boutique in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. Although the retail store was a big hit, the historic building and the long, hot DC Summers didn’t mix. So in March 2013 J. Chocolatier moved back online. Currently, J. Chocolatier treats are also available at CocoVa in Adams Morgan, and Veritas Wine Bar in DuPont Circle.”

And now on Capitol Hill:


No word yet on who will take over the Groovy space.
