Sip & Develop to Open National Harbor Location

Downtown Silver Spring-based photography studio Sip & Develop is set to open a new location at National Harbor in January.

Sip & Develop, which opened its first location last year and gained popularity on TikTok, offers a social space serving beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks along with darkrooms for developing film:

Sip & Develop in Silver Spring prides itself on being the only company in the United States that combines a social environment with easy-to-understand film developing instructions. NO film developing experience is required! We’ll entertain you and your friends, co-workers, or family as we show you step-by-step how to develop photos!

Sheen Magazine reports that Sip & Develop at the National Harbor will be situated at 136 Waterfront Street, replacing Zen Yoga, which relocated to Old Town Alexandria. Following a successful pop-up event in Atlanta last year, the company is planning additional pop-up events in Charlotte and Philadelphia, with additional locations to follow.

Sip & Develop won an Editor’s Choice award in the Arts & Culture category for “Best New Places to See and Make Art” in this year’s Best of Bethesda issue.
