Starbucks hopes to serve beer and wine at four more locations just one week after it began serving booze at five of its D.C.-area coffeeshops.

The company has applied for a liquor license to serve beer at its location at 801 18th St. NW and three other shops, according to paperwork filed with the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration this week.

If the applications are approved, the following locations would be able to serve alcohol:

  • 801 18th St. NW
  • 625 H St. NE
  • 1401 New York Ave. NW
  • 550 C St. SW

The coffee chain also currently has pending applications to serve alcohol at its locations at 1700 Connecticut Ave. NW and 901 New York Ave. NW.

Starbucks last week rolled out its “Starbucks Evenings” service with alcohol and small plates at five District locations, including on Capitol Hill and in Adams Morgan and Shaw.

The program features bar bites alongside craft beer and red, white and sparkling wines by the bottle and glass.

A representative for Starbucks declined to say more about whether the company planned to apply for licenses at any other locations.
