Politics & Prose Connecticut Avenue location.
Politics & Prose, the independent upper Northwest DC bookstore and cafe, has had just one store since it opened its doors back in 1984. Now it is really looking to expand.
The store announced today that it will open a new outpost at The Wharf in October.
“We’re very excited to be expanding to Southwest DC, an increasingly dynamic part of the city that has been woefully lacking in bookstores,” Politics & Prose co-owners said in a press release.
The P&P folks also announced earlier this summer that they are opening a store near Union Market, but did not specify the store’s exact location.
The Wharf, a $2 billion, mile-long development set to open in October, covers a wide swath of waterfront land in Southwest DC, but is generally bounded by the pier head line of the Washington Channel on the southwest and Maine Avenue to the northeast, between 6th and 11th Streets SW (map).
