7 Local Businesses You Should Follow On Instagram
We ❤ DC.
We also love Instagram. We combined the two and found 7 local businesses you should be following on Instagram if you love DC.
1. Icy Code | @icycode
IcyCode is a favorite spot in D.C. for rolled ice cream. Rolled Ice Cream, an authentic Thai dessert, is a new trend that we can’t get enough of. Watching the rolled ice cream being made is an experience in itself, and eating it is even better! Icy Code serves some of the most unique flavors and toppings, giving you the opportunity for the perfect Instagram post.
2. La Vie DC | @lavie_dc
An installation at the newly-developed Wharf DC, this coastal Mediterranean restaurant, bar and lounge offers a stunning view of the Potomac River waterfront and marina from lofty windows. Perfect for a fancy nice out or a birthday dinner, since it also has dancing and table/bottle service in the lounge area.
3. Swings Coffee | @swingscoffee
One of the closest coffee shops to The White House and only a 4-minute walk from the Metro Center station. Their large floor to ceiling windows and a patterned tiled floor encourages you to get out that phone and gram away. Swings is in the bottom floor of an office building, but sterile it is not. It’s a very light, clean coffee shop with bar seating and a few tables off to the side. They offer free, strong Wi-Fi and pastries, including a good bagel.
4. Maketto | @maketto1351
Maketto is a versatile spot - you can stop by for coffee, you can stop by dim sum, or you can just stop by. It's also an adaptable spot for an Instagram aesthetic. You can focus on the colorful, animated walls and illustrations around you or you can escape to the quiet string lights and tree branches above you.
5. Colada Shop | @coladashop
Colada shop is a staple coffee-Instagram spot in DC. It's bright and fun and one of the best places to stop for a drink and a quick 'gram.
6. Salt & Sundry | @saltandsundry
From painted ceramics to patterned throws, screen printed bags to small-batch foods, Salt & Sundry’s assortment of artisanal treasures inspires the creator and designer in us all. Its curated boutique on the bustling 14th and U Street Corridor is a welcome opportunity to slow down, pick up, flip through, and try on. All the items in the store have a story, and the thoughtfulness that goes into making, selecting, and presenting each one will emanate tenfold in its new home. Whether shopping for yourself or someone else, a gift from Salt & Sundry is an original accent to the home or outfit.
7. Ice Cream Jubilee Spruce | @icecreamjubilee
For some of the best all natural and high-quality ice cream in D.C., visit Ice Cream Jubilee, a local scoop shop serving unique flavors and that change seasonally. Banana Bourbon Caramel, Basil Goat Cheese, Blueberry Pie, Coffee and Doughnuts, and Honey Lemon Lavender are some of their popular Summer 2017 flavors. These unique flavors loaded up into a classic waffle cone will allow you create a simple yet mouth watering Instagram post.
