By September 6, 2022 0 1811•
In/Coming: Bourbon Concierge, Alkova
The Bourbon Concierge is setting up at 2816 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, the former spot of Cafe Tu-O-Tu. The family-owned business was founded in 1995 and specializes in high-end, collectible spirits. Says the company: “Serving specialty-buying customers around the country for more than two decades and generations with hand-crafted, quality liquor for enjoyment and private collections…. The brick-and-mortar shop began with a firm focus on white-glove customer service that created long-time friends who came back again and again to source the most prestigious and rare libations available.”
While not related, the shop is steps from Bourbon Steak, the restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel.
Coming soon to 1510 Wisconsin Ave. NW, the former spot of Luigi Parasmo Salon and Spa, will be Alkova yoga and co-working. “We’ve created a place where you can peacefully work, practice yoga, or both,” Alkova tells us. “This space, like an alcove in a city, is a respite from the disconnection present in the outside world. While we can’t control all external chaos, we can provide the tools for you to create an inner oasis, wherever you go. Our co-working space offers a tranquil setting for collaborating with others or finding a quiet corner to yourself. Our expert yoga instructors lead classes that challenge the physical body and prompt introspection. Despite the Westernization of yoga, we aim to keep our teaching close to yoga’s authentic form while still making it accessible for all bodies.”
Moved/Moving: Pacers Running, Soulier, Same Day Health, Tugooh Toys
Pacers Running moved from 3273 M St. NW to 1079 Wisconsin Ave. NW, the former space of Lily Pulitzer and Sarah Flint.
Soulier shoes moved to 1434 Wisconsin Ave. NW. last month.
Same Day Health is moving from 3227 M St. NW to the former Frye Boots location at 1066 Wisconsin Ave. NW.
Tugooh Toys will relocate this week a few doors north to 1440 Wisconsin Ave. NW., the former location of Wisey’s.
Out: District Doughnut in Cady’s Alley
We sure hope it’s temporary. District Doughnut closed at 3327 Cady’s Alley NW and is looking for new digs in Georgetown. The company announced: “Relocating! Our Georgetown shop will be closed from 8/28/2022 until further notice as we relocate to a new retail space in Georgetown. Follow us on our social pages to stay up to date on the latest info. Thank you for continuing to support our business. Stay happy! #HappinessFound.”
