Bar With ‘Working Darkroom’ Planned for Florida Ave.
A new bar aimed at local artists and photography enthusiasts could soon develop along Florida Ave. NW.
The hangout, dubbed “The Darkroom,” is in the works at 207 Florida Ave. NW, according to a liquor license application recently filed with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Administration (ABRA).
The forthcoming business will be “a venue dedicated to building community through the art of photography,” the application reads.
If all goes according to plan, the bar will feature “a working darkroom, photography studio, bar and art gallery,” and will host screenings, art shows, lectures and classes “designed to preserve the history and and explore the future of the medium.”
The Darkroom will also serve charcuterie, cheese and olives in addition to alcohol, the application notes.
We were unable to reach a representative from the business to comment on the opening. We’ll update this story if we hear back from them.
