Thanks to a tipster for passing on a job listing saying they are opening in April. The liquor license application for Officina Cafe says:

“New Restaurant delivering food and alcohol to offices throughout the building. Summer Garden with 60 seats. Total Occupancy Loadis150 with seating for 60 inside premises. Requesting an Entertainment Endorsement to provide live entertainment and dancing indoors and outdoors.”

In October Officina opened their Wharf location.

Eater reported:

“Stefanelli says the Officina Cafe will primarily serve breakfast, lunch, and happy hour. He’s still working out the possibility of dinner. The chef is envisioning Roman pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, salads, coffee, and cocktails.”

Updates as the cafe gets closer to opening downtown.

From Little Coco’s:

“Little Coco’s Restaurant announces the launch of APERITIVO HOUR, its modified version of the iconic Italian happy hour. Mondays through Thursdays from 5 – 7 pm, Aperitivo Hour is an all-inclusive, unlimited, food and drink offer for $23 per person.

Inspired by our pre-opening trip across Italy in 2015, the team at Little Cocos’ has been noodling over how to recreate the Italian love of pre-dinner apertifs and snacks. Based on the idea that digestifs/bitters such as Campari and Aperol combined with salty snacks whet one’s appetite for dinner, Aperitivo times are ubiquitous in Italy, from coast to coast, city-to-city, restaurant-to-restaurant.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m planning a happy hour in DC for a group of 15 – 20 on a Thursday evening in May (thinking 5:30 – 7:30 PM). I’m trying to find a fun restaurant/bar that will allow me to reserve a bar area for my group without committing to a high minimum. Ideally a few tall cocktail tables or a lounge space. Ideally, I’d like to find a place near U Street/14th Street/Adam’s Morgan/Dupont.

Any suggestions?”



DC Happy Hours

“Hello! My family and I just moved to the DC area and are looking for a great happy hour spot! My husband and I had a weekly routine where we used to live of going to happy hour once a week (a less formal version of date night). We could use some suggestions! We like good beer and we like good food!”

Of course it’s one of the best happy hours in DC – from Sushi Taro:

“MONDAY – FRIDAY 5:30 – 7:00 only at the BAR.

Half price on regular sushi and all alcoholic drinks (excludes large bottles and mixed drinks)

As Washington D.C.’s premiere restaurant serving Japanese cuisine, Sushi Taro continues to educate people with our concept of serving genuine Japanese dishes along with superb selection of Sake and Sho-Chu.

This is a great opportunity for you to try some of our high-end sake or fulfill your curiosity about sho-chu.

Sushi Taro’s Happy Hour is one of the best and most valued deals in town, and we are often asked why we do not promote it. Sushi Taro’s bar has only 11 seats and we can’t accommodate such large crowds in such a short time.”

Yesterday afternoon, I swear, seriously, I was just looking for a glass of water as I unwisely took the capital bikeshare from Petworth to Cleveland Park when it was 95 degrees out. By the time I stumbled down to Woodley Park, I thought I was hallucinating when I saw the sign above at the Hot N Juicy located at 2651 Connecticut Ave, NW. The guy who was working must’ve thought I was crazy. I asked is that just for Bud Light? He says no, all beers. I say when is the happy hour? He says all day. I asked three times because I couldn’t believe it. Then I walked over to the bar and saw Heniken and Shock Top and asked if they were $1 and the guy just starts laughing. Yes.

It’s true – I bought a Shock Top for $1 (screw my dehydration!). I don’t know how long this promotion will last but I think this may very well be the best deal in town.

On a completely unrelated note – on Mondays through Wednesdays, all day, I can now be found at 2651 Connecticut Ave, NW…
