Coffeeshop by morning, social scene in the evening

The Dupont Circle underground trolley, operated from 1949 – 1963, was a commuter train for residents, but was paused when cars became popular. We were captivated by the former trolley station and its entrance on Massachusetts Avenue, steps from The Embassy Row Hotel which is why we’re known as Station Kitchen & Cocktails. 

The space has been unknown by most... until recently. Today, the nonprofit Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground (ACDU) whose members and supporters include artists, designers, community leaders, and business people are transforming the forgotten 75,000 square foot space below Washington, D.C.’s famous Dupont Circle into a cultural destination.

From the award-winning cocktails created by master mixologists in Station Kitchen & Cocktails to the high energy of The Rooftop Pool and Bar, we are proud to be recognized as a hotspot and a fundraising hub for locals in Washington, D.C. Our fun and communal atmosphere will speak life into the independent traveler or the family-on-the go- looking for authentic connections.
