Update: Status of Smoking in Drapers

La Palina's Family Series: The Pasha

As you may know by now, due to complaints from an upstairs tenant concerning the aroma of cigars, Boston Properties (the management company for 640 14th Street NW) asked W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist to cease smoking on the premises effective Thursday, January 13. 2011 and until further notice.

We continue to work diligently in conjunction with building management in an attempt to identify and resolve the issue as soon as possible. Drapers has resided in this space for over 20 years and in the District of Columbia for 123. We pride ourselves on being good neighbors and regret any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

As a reminder, Drapers remains open for business if you need to purchase tobacco or smoking accessories. Feel free to call us at (202) 638-2555 with any questions or to place a phone order.
