Former Amanuel Market Retooling as Coffee Shop

July 11, 2017

The former Amanuel Market at 3661 Georgia Avenue, NW

I’ve been hearing scuttlebutt that the former Amanuel Market located on the southeast corner of Georgia Avenue and Rock Creek Church Road will be becoming a coffee shop. There’s certainly been a lot of work going on there lately.

In checking out the building permit database at DCRA, looks like this is indeed what is intended. Following is the description from DCRA:

“USE CHANGE FROM CONVENIENCE STORE WITH ACCESSORY PREPARED FOOD SHOP TO FOOD PREPARATION AND COFFEE SHOP. BY KEEPING THE EXISTING MECHANICAL , ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING AS IS WITH THE ADDITION OF ADA COMPLIANCE HANDICAP ACCESS BATHROOM, THREE COMPARTMENT SINK , UNDER COUNTER FREEZER AND COFFEE BREW.”

I think a coffee shop will do well at this location and hoping it turns out great!

Colony Club Joining Forces with DGS Delicatessen

January 30, 2017

sadies-weekdaysAccording to a new release shard by Colony Club, they are joining forces with DGS Delicatessen  to bring Dupont Circle top-notch coffee and bagels. The venture is called Sadie’s Weekdays and it will operate out of the DGS sandwich counter from 7 a.m.-11 a.m., Monday-Friday. This will allow people to grab a latte and breakfast before DGS opens its doors for lunch.

Sadie’s Weekdays, a collaboration between cousins and friends, is a nod to the classic New York bagel shop, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and preparation. Expect to see a bagel with soft scrambled egg, cheddar cheese, and crispy DGS pastrami. The bagels are coming from DC’s own Bullfrog Bagels. Colony Club’s baristas will be behind the counter, brewing Ceremony Coffee (Annapolis, MD) and pulling shots of Tandem Coffee (Portland, ME).

Below is a copy of the Menu.

Colony Club Celebrates Opening of Patio on Friday, July 31st

Colony Club, located at 3118 Georgia Avenue.

Colony Club‘s rear patio is finished and open. To celebrate the new patio, they will be having an opening event this Friday (July 31) beginning at 5 p.m. Colony Club is located at 3118 Georgia Avenue and well worth the visit.

As part of the celebration, the Timber Pizza food truck will be parked out back. There will also be a DJ, a balloon artist, and drink specials. It should be a fun way to wrap up the week.

Below are some photos showing how the patio turned out. I thought it was wall thought out, attractive, and like the inclusion of the planters.
