Sankofa Café posts liquor license placard

2714 Georgia Avenue, NW

The placard for Sankofa says:

“A new Retailer’s Class C Tavern with a seating capacity of 83 and Total Occupancy Load of 136. Summer Garden with 53 seats.”

For those not familiar: “Since 1998, Sankofa has been a cultural center, bookstore and cafe devoted to people of African descent”

Ed. Note: Sankofa also applied for a liquor license back in 2011. Not sure if that went ever went through or not.
