Coffee Shop on 14th Street Gets Booze

A coffeehouse on the 14th street corridor now is serving beer, wine and cocktails, along with its java.

The Wydown Coffee Bar at 1924 14th St. NW began offering the booze last month, after working since last year to get a liquor license.

General manager Nazia Khan added in an email today:

*The Wydown’s new menu features 8 wines, 3 beers, and 4 craft cocktails.

*Beer, wine, and mimosas are available starting at 9am and cocktails are available starting at 4pm daily. We have extended hours to remain open until 8:30 Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday. Coffee and espresso will remain available at all times.

*The cocktails are made from fresh, made-in-house ingredients, including a gin and house tonic, an old fashioned with house coffee bitters and cascara syrup, and a seasonal punch with gin, fresh pineapple syrup, oleo saccharum, lemon and Moroccan mint tea.

*The wine offerings include white, red, rose, and sparkling options. We are particularly enjoying the Evodia, a full bodied, fruity garnacha from Spain and the peachy, medium bodied White Hall Viognier, from a local Virginia vineyard.

    Why can’t I get a cocktail at 9AM? Is that some sort of DC law? Beer and wine are fine? Spirituous beverages are not?

    Also. 9 AM? Seriously? Is that because they are catering to a certain u street clientele that still exists?
