The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment (OCTFME) recognizes the Pluma by Bluebird Bakery as the March 2020 Location of the Month.
Pluma is a cafe concept from the folks behind D.C.'s acclaimed Bluebird Bakery. After providing Washingtonian restaurants and cafes with signature, high-quality wholesale pastries for years, proprietors Camila Arango and Tom Wellings are thrilled to be serving guests in their own bakery. A blending of backgrounds, styles, and offerings, Pluma by Bluebird Bakery continues to serve their devoted wholesale customers while adding a stylish environment and delicious all-day menu for residents and visitors of D.C.’s Union Market district.
Pluma is also available for filming and makes a great location for film, television, commercial and/or any visual production. Recent productions that have filmed at Pluma include international news channel (TRT World) and Bravo network who filmed The Real Housewives of Potomac.
“Pluma by Bluebird Bakery is a concept that emerged from love and a passion for baking. As our quote on the front window of the store says: We met in the kitchen and fell in love baking. Through our pastries we hope to give to Washington what it has given to us," said Pluma owner Camila Arango. “That is why DC is so special to us. We are thrilled to be featured as location of the month by the Office of Cable Television, Film, Music, and Entertainment. We hope that everyone can come and enjoy our space, feel the love and warmth we have worked so hard to create.”
