“Calypso Coffee and Ice Cream will celebrate the grand opening of its first location on Saturday, October 22nd. At the opening, Calypso will offer free ice cream and coffee between 12 and 2 p.m.
Located in the Trinidad neighborhood in Washington, DC, at 1730 Trinidad Avenue, NE between H Street and Union Market, Calypso Ice Cream & Coffee is a neighborhood ice cream and coffee shop, featuring ice cream, coffee drinks and teas, and locally made pastries.
Calypso is the first retail project for the residential real estate investors. After purchasing the building and renovating the apartments, they had to decide what to do with the retail space on the first floor. Explains their representative Twee Nguyen, “Our hope is that Calypso will become a neighborhood gathering place and show others that Trinidad is a place to visit. Serving smiles, we are excited to serve the Trinidad residents and surrounding community.”
Calypso Ice Cream & Coffee is named both for the Trinidad neighborhood and after the Caribbean country or island, Trinidad & Tobago. The owners commissioned prominent muralist Erik B Ricks to paint the colorful mural on the side of the building, which features the bright colors of Carnival, including hummingbirds, mixed with Ricks’ signature style of geometric shapes.
