Booze-loving shutterbugs, rejoice: PetaPixel reports that Washington, D.C. might soon be home to a new photography bar called The Darkroom. In addition to food and drink facilities, the establishment will include a photo studio, an art gallery, and a working darkroom for artists to develop film.

Tim Regan of community news website Borderstan caught wind of The Darkroom’s launch through a liquor license application filed with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA). According to the document, the bar, located at 207 Florida Ave. NW, is “dedicated to building community through the art of photography.”

The Darkroom will host events like screenings, art shows, lectures, and photography classes. Alcohol will be served, but the business’s owners also plan to offer food items including charcuterie, cheese, and olives. There’s not much information to go on beyond that, but Borderstan has promised to keep readers updated as the story, uh, develops.
