Best Holiday Windows!

Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets organized its eighth annual Holiday Windows Competition, Holiday Lights, a citywide window competition to foster a festive shopping and dining environment in Dupont Circle. The winners of this year’s Holiday Windows Competition are Florian for Best Restaurant; Pride Smoke Shop for best Retail; and Deluca Massage for Best Service. A special People’s Choice Award goes to Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse.

Pride Smoke Shop won for best retail shop because Sean Kim’s decorations embody the diversity of Dupont Circle while embracing the holiday season. Floriana won best restaurant decorations because of its Kamala Harris Tree is politically relevant, showing that any woman can be vice president. The streatery pictorially displays Vice President Harris’ growing up showing the stages of her life along the streatery. Deluca Massage won best service with its romantic holiday decorations covering this three-story historic building. The scale and scope of this year’s decorations outshine all others – requiring a 30-foot ladder to install. Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse has been a neighborhood favorite since 1948. This James Beard award-winning restaurant captures the hearts of residents with its fun, wintery streatery, use of white birch trees, and outdoor heaters welcome all who seek a steak and Manhattan.

The holiday windows competition is a way to encourage retailers in Dupont Circle to prepare for seasonal displays. HDCMS encouraged all retail shops, restaurants, and services to install holiday windows by Small Business Saturday to raise the bar for seasonal design. The Design Committee for HDCMS judged the windows on December 11, 2020. Window displays were judged in three categories: Best Retail Shop, Best Restaurant, and Best Service. New this year, the committee created a People’s Choice Award.
