1658 Columbia Road NW via Potter’s House
From an email:
“After weathering some significant delays we are excited to announce that we are 6-8 weeks from reopening! As construction is wrapping up we’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money for initial startup costs.
The Potter’s House is a not-for-profit café, bookstore, and event space Adams Morgan. Since opening its doors in 1960 it has been a key place for deeper conversation, creative expression, and community transformation. After closing last year for major renovations we’re excited to reopen with a completely redesigned space and new offerings.
The new menu will change seasonally, be sourced locally whenever possible, and draw from the diverse cultural and culinary streams that make our city great. Daily pay-what-you-can items will ensure that all who enter our doors can enjoy a delicious meal. A third wave coffee and tea program will feature Counter Culture Coffee and Rishi Tea.
The bookstore will focus on social issues, cultural studies and progressive spirituality. And we’ll offer curated selections of literary fiction and poetry, alongside great books for children and youth.
Community is at the heart of this entire project. We want to be a catalyst for justice and healing in DC through our programs and gatherings. Our discussion tables, issue forums, and film screenings will amplify efforts for social justice and explore the spiritual practices and cultural traditions that sustain them. Our live music, spoken word and storytelling nights, and rotating gallery will highlight the diversity of the city and celebrate its creativity.”
