Coffee shops and restaurants will offer specials to encourage people to “Be Downtown” throughout February and March.

At an event at the Connecticut Avenue Roasting Plant, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a new plan to encourage residents, workers, and visitors to explore Downtown DC.

“As more people come Downtown, we want people to explore all the fantastic businesses that we have here,” she said.  “Whether you’re returning to an old favorite or trying something new, I encourage everyone to enjoy Downtown and to take advantage of these specials.”

As part of the “Be Downtown” promotion, over 40 restaurants across Downtown DC will offer a variety of morning, lunch, and happy hour specials. A full list of participating restaurants is available here.
