Local spirits, Dc's best brews & Wines with a nod to our namesake

Benjamin's on Franklin - a bar fit for Tastemakers. 


When we created Tastemakers, we knew our location on the corner of Franklin and 10th NE was a great spot. The neighbors are the friendliest imaginable and, since the project is meant to build community, we are thrilled to be at such a prominent junction.

But it turns out Franklin St is better known for traffic than a gathering place. We hope that our presence will change that and remind people of another critical and interesting Franklin.

To honor our location, we're featuring the best in DC's spirits and brews as well as some of our favorite local wines. As a nod to our namesake, you'll find our menu to be very inventive when it comes to our signature cocktails. So come, relax and meet friends and neighbors over one of our expertly crafted drinks. After all, as Ben Franklin said, "There cannot be good living where there is not good drinking."

Join us Tuesdays through Sundays for a masterful beverage and:

On Tuesdays: Bingo 7-9p

On Wednesdays: Half off glasses of wine
