Update from Ice Cream Jubilee:

“Ice Cream Jubilee’s second location will open in September at 1407 T Street, NW.

Two years after opening its first store in Yards Park, Ice Cream Jubilee is preparing to open its second location at 1407 T Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20009. Ice Cream Jubilee will continue to feature creative flavors of premium ice cream made from local, all natural cream, such as Thai Iced Tea, Banana Bourbon Caramel, Marionberry, and Cookies & Cookie Dough. Ice Cream Jubilee will serve its freshly made waffle cones and quarter-pound cookies, and introduce new seasonal flavors, sundaes, and indulgent drinks for the winter.

“We are very excited to be opening in the bustling 14th Street neighborhood,” said Ice Cream Jubilee founder Victoria Lai. “Ice Cream Jubilee is proud to contribute to Washington, D.C.’s booming food scene with our spin on classic ice cream treats.”

Ice Cream Jubilee will share the space with Bakehouse, a bakery that won the neighborhood’s heart with its fresh pastries and sandwiches. Bakehouse will continue to operate a wholesale bakery out of the shared space while Ice Cream Jubilee operates the front of house as a full-service ice cream shop.

“We are lucky to have great friends like [Bakehouse founders] Niall and Lindsey who invited Ice Cream Jubilee to join them in their small business adventure,” said Lai. “I admire their success and commitment to a collaborative, successful food entrepreneurship environment.”

A reader reports:

“Victoria Lai, the owner of Ice Cream Jubilee, is listed on the building permit posted on the window of the former Bakeshop space. Hopefully this means she’s opening another shop here on T street next to Taqueria Nacional and Lupo Verde. Exciting news for the block!”

BakeHouse closed their brick and mortar back in May and announced at that time “we have arranged for another local business to take over the storefront”. Ice Cream Jubilee opened up in Navy Yard back in 2014:

“Ice Cream Jubilee was founded by Victoria Lai, an attorney-turned-icecreampreneur…Ice Cream Jubilee reimagines the childhood joy of ice cream by combining sophisticated, international flavors with childhood-favorites like Banana Bourbon Caramel, Dark & Stormy, Mango Habanero, Thai Iced Tea, and Blueberry Pie. Using an all-natural super-premium local cream from Maryland, Ice Cream Jubilee’s product has a higher cream content and is scooped at a colder temperature than gelato, which makes it ideal for ice cream cones and sundaes.”
