Segreto: Shaw’s Speakeasy

Tucked away beneath the pizza-filled high top tables at Minya’s (1932 9th St. NW) a sleek, modern new speakeasy bar: Segreto DC is waiting to serve you. 

Local entrepreneur Yoseif Aradom moved to the District from Eritrea and has started several locally owned ventures including U Street Cleaning, Minya’s Pizza and, most recently, a unique speakeasy bar. The bar plans to feature a variety of unique cocktails and other drinks. 

Aradom’s pizza shop, which opened in October, has quickly become a local favorite. With recipes inspired by a combination of fresh, organic ingredients and his East African heritage, their pies are unique and delicious. They are best known for their signature “spicy sauce” that features a special spice blend.

The grand opening will take place on Friday, Feb. 2, from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Be sure to stop by Minya’s upstairs for a specialty slice to take a pie to-go. Visit minyaspizza.com for more information.
