R Street Corridor Offers Festive Activations and Spirited Specials this Holiday Season

To celebrate the holiday season in creative and spirited ways, a variety of popular retail shops plus local bars, restaurants and eateries along the vibrant R Street Corridor are offering fun and festive activations during the holidays. And, to set the stage for the season, new street lighting lights up R Street during evening hours throughout the holiday season. Shoppers, strollers, and diners can now enjoy a festive and fun ambiance along the popular and walkable R Street corridor (9th through 19th streets). The new lighting was made possible with assistance from CADA, the Capitol Area Development Authority.

“We are truly delighted to sponsor the R Street Corridor holiday street lights this year,” said CADA Executive Director, Danielle Foster. “In the spirit of cultivating community, CADA continues its vision to strengthen our neighborhoods through partnerships that create a sense of place and further enjoyment of that space. We hope this lighting ignites community spirit this holiday season.”

In addition to the ambiance of new lighting, R Street Corridor merchants are providing seasonal offerings that include the following:

  • Bottle & Barlow (1120 R Street) is excited their elaborate Christmas + Gremlin décor is making a comeback this holiday season and on display through December. In addition, festive drinks will be featured at the casual and welcoming cocktail lounge that includes a full-service barbershop and bar. More details are available here.
