On a recent ride on 14th Street to see the gentrification of the neighborhoods through which it passes, I saw some interesting things. Among the most interesting was the Barrel House Liquor Store (MAP). As you might expect, the liquor store’s entry is framed by a large barrel that you enter through. The store’s unusual doorway was constructed some time during the 1950s, and is a local attraction. Before turning to liquor, this storefront once housed an auto dealership – for Rolls-Royce. There’s always something interesting to find in D.C., which makes the bike rides fun.
