We have so many fond memories of the original and iconic Bauhaus that was tragically taken down after 20 years of serving the Capitol Hill community and all those who would seek it out from other destinations.

So many friendships, relationships, creative endeavors, poems, photo shoots, daydreams, and happy times were formed and inspired by Bauhaus.  Bauhaus was even one of the main destinations in the book "The Art Of Racing In The Rain" by Garth Stein.  Many movie stars and musicians of the 80's and 90's would frequent Bauhaus.  Bauhaus Capitol Hill was the place to go to just experience a quintessential part of the Capitol Hill community and to be a part of that family.

This section of the website is our ode to those "Good Old Days".  If you were a previous barista or a customer/friend of the original Bauhaus, and happen to have some pictures, please upload them to our Instagram page and we will proudly add them to this gallery. Just click on the big Instagram button below and you'll be dropped off on our Instagram page. Please scroll through this gallery and enjoy the first entires.  Long live Bauhaus!
