Happy holidays from Jade Fitness. We’re a boutique fitness studio right across the street from Barracks Row in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of DC. As residents of the Capitol Hill, we would like to think that we are part of a vibrant and collaborative community. On Small Business Saturday we shopped local, and we frequent our neighbor’s businesses on a daily basis for treats, drinks, and other fine things. The month of December is crucial to local businesses, so in order to help our neighbors we’ve put together a list of 7 Capitol Hill businesses to support during the holidays. Check it out, and tweet us at @jadefitnessdc if you’ve got any we should add!
The Pretzel Bakery – 340 15th St SE – You don’t know what a soft pretzel should taste like until you’ve been to The Pretzel Bakery. Not just for a snack, Washington City Paper’s staff pick for best breakfast sandwich come from here!
Curbside Cupcake – 257 15th St SE – Looking to bring some sweets to a holiday party? Stop by Curbside Cupcake and pick up a dozen! You can also stop by for breakfast and grab one of their homemade pop tarts along with a cup of locally roasted Vigilante Coffee.
Pinktini – 705 North Carolina Avenue SE – Coming up on their one year anniversary in the neighborhood. If you want to support the neighborhood but can’t make it out to shop, you can buy from them online! Keep an eye on their Facebook page, as they hold occasional cocktails & shopping experiences.
Lavender Retreat – 1236 Pensylvania Ave SE – Once you get tired of carrying all your shopping bags and loading the tree up to your 3rd floor walk-up, you may be in need of a massage. We love our friends at Lavender, and they do a great job of promoting their neighbors. If you are around Chinatown, you can also catch them at the Downtown Holiday Market on F St NW.
Music on the Hill – 1453 Pennsylvania Ave SE – If a guitar or music lessons are the Christmas list for your children, then you need to talk to Lindy over at Music on the Hill. They’ve got some great packages on sale through December 23rd!
World Wine & Spirits – 1453 Pennsylvania Ave SE – Stocking up for your holiday party? Stop on in at WW&W and ask for Richard Lee. They’ve got one of the best selections of beer and wine. You can even bring your own growlers in to fill up!
Wisdom – 1432 Pennsylvania Ave SE – Finally, if it’s time to just get out of the house to meet up with friends for a few cocktails, you can’t go wrong with Wisdom. Ask to see their selection of crafted house original cocktails. You can’t get any more local than Erik, who lives above the bar!
