1414-1418 U Street NW. Google Street View.
A new whiskey distillery is fittingly planned for what has become one of the biggest nightlife stretches in the city.
From the WBJ:
The concept would encompass more than 7,000 square feet at 1414 and 1418 U Street, formerly home to Coppi’s Organic and Utopia restaurants. The distillery and tasting area would be located on the ground floor, with the majority of the restaurant and bar — with more than 100 seats — located on the second floor.
The planned distillery/restaurant is still in the approval stages and likely has a number of hurdles left to overcome before it is officially given the green light.
If it came to fruition, District Distillery would be the third distillery in DC, but the first located outside of Ivy City. New Columbia Distillers opened in October 2012 on Fenwick Street NE, and One Eight Distilling on Okie Street is scheduled to open next year.
