Starbucks Seeks to Serve Booze at New H Street Coffeeshop
Starbucks hopes to serve beer and wine at its forthcoming coffeeshop on H Street NE.
The company has applied for a liquor license to serve beer and wine at its new store at 625 H St. NE, according to paperwork filed with the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration this week.
That store is due to open this summer, a representative with the chain said in March.
The national coffee company is also seeking to serve booze at Starbucks locations downtown and close to the National Mall, according to the paperwork.
Starbucks recently rolled out its “Starbucks Evenings” service with alcohol and small plates at five District locations, including on Capitol Hill and in the Northwest D.C. neighborhoods of Adams Morgan and Shaw.
If approved, the program will feature craft beer, along with red, white and sparkling wines by the bottle and glass, according to a sample menu.
