In: Vino: Veritas

We are always delighted to see new life breathed into an old space. And while it is always wonderful to see this happen to an empty, highly visible storefront on a well-traveled street, it is somewhat more exciting when it happens to a space that we never even really noticed before. This is the case with the recently opened Veritas Wine Bar at 2031 Florida Avenue NW (at the intersection of Connecticut Ave.) While certainly located in a great, old building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, the tenant space here, adjacent to Georgetown Valet, had always escaped our view, until now.

Veritas boasts a range of wine that any enthusiast would applaud. (And with the opportunity for patrons to suggest additions to their wine list, the options will only get better.)

Meanwhile, we applaud the design of the space. With exposed brick and clean, simple finishes and furnishing, the feel is understated - chic, yet decidedly not pretentious. There is an energetic vibe which makes this an appealing place to unwind after a day at the office. This is a welcome addition to Dupont.
