M.E. Swing Del Ray Coffee Bar

The G Street location of vintage Washington roaster Swing's is delightfully retro, but if you want a whiff of the direction the operation is heading, visit the roaster's modern Del Ray coffee bar, which opened in May. There, not far from where Swing's roasts its new single-origin coffees and popular decaf, you can take part in Friday morning "cuppings" to taste new roasts, sip cold brews straight from a high-tech tap or just settle in with a laptop in a lovely space full of reclaimed wood.
Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.; Saturday 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
