As partisan politics continue to heat up, Starbucks may be offering the perfect remedy: Five of the coffee chain's Washington, D.C., locations began serving alcohol Tuesday.
Starbucks began serving wine, craft beer and "savory small plates" at 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to a new Evenings Menu posted to the company's website.
"We've always been your neighborhood morning stop," the statement reads. "Now we’re bringing a little delight to your evenings too."
According to WJLA-TV, the new Starbucks menu is part of a nationwide effort to better compete with other coffee shops that close their doors earlier and have few evening drink and food options.
Here are the five D.C. locations:
1. Wisconsin and Idaho Avenues NW
2. Grand Hyatt, 11th and H Street NW
3. 237 Pennsylvania Avenue SE
4. 1801 Columbia Road NW
5. 815 O Street NW
The Evening Menu will be available starting at 2 p.m. on weekdays and at noon on weekends. Additionally, Starbucks will serve alcohol until 11 p.m. each night.
