The studio confirmed the second location’s grand opening date on Instagram.
Sip & Develop, which opened its first location in Downtown Silver Spring in 2022 and became popular on TikTok, offers a social space where they serve beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as providing darkrooms for developing photographic 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!
Last year, Sheen Magazine reported that Sip & Develop at the National Harbor will be located at 136 Waterfront Street, taking the place of Zen Yoga, which moved to Old Town Alexandria. After a successful pop-up event in Atlanta in 2022, the company plans to host more pop-up events in Charlotte and Philadelphia and is considering additional locations.
