Distilled Spirits Council Moves DC HQ to Capitol Hill

The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) has inked an 11,00-square-foot lease at 101 Constitution Avenue, a 10-story office building in Washington, D.C., Commercial Observer has learned. 


DISCUS,  a lobbying group for the distilled spirits industry, is relocating from its former headquarters at 1250 Eye Street NW, just in time for its 50th anniversary.

“As we celebrate DISCUS’s 50th anniversary, this modern, one-of-a-kind office will greatly support our mission to be effective and strong advocates for the spirits sector and its consumers well into the future,” Chris Swonger, president and CEO of DISCUS, said in a prepared statement.

The headquarters was constructed by Rand and designed by D.C.-based interior architecture and design firm sshape.


“Our new office celebrates the vibrant cocktail culture in the U.S. and the importance of the hospitality industry,” he said. “We set out to create a workplace where our team feels inspired every time they walk into the office, and our guests have an unforgettable experience and a deeper appreciation for spirits.” 


Cresa’s Mindy Saffer and Josh Freedenberg represented DISCUS in the lease. It was unclear who represented ownership.
