First look: You can now self-pour on Capitol Hill — Happy hour has begun at Rapport

The self-pouring is online and Rapport is moving forward as one of the first new ventures to debut on Capitol Hill amid the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

After starting with daytime service of its coffee and cafe offerings, the new food and drink project is ready to add happy hour as it gears up for nighttime hours and opens access to its self-serve beer and wine bar taps.

“We want to be a space that people utilize throughout the day,” David Clawson, Rapport, Café, Bar and Kitchen founder and managing director, said.

It’s been a while since the “secret Starbucks” of Capitol Hill (a.k.a. Roy Street Coffee & Tea) closed forever. Now it’s a bar called Rapport, and they’re serving wine, beer, bottled cocktails, and a food menu of tartines, sandwiches, and salads. They open at 7am every day, but that’s because Rapport also doubles as a coffee shop. You can order takeout online, or eat at one of their patio tables.

Rapport, Café, Bar and Kitchen is slated to open on Capitol Hill in early August putting the large space left empty by the exit of Starbucks and its Roy Street Cafe from the northern end of Broadway last year back into motion with a concept that seems perfectly crafted for these times though the idea for it was born long before the pandemic.
