Finding the best cocktail bars in Washington D.C. can be incredibly challenging. Sure, there are common factors to consider that help you make your decision: space, price, and offerings just to name a few. But there are lots of individual choices that stack up. Does this venue serve the classics? Do they have innovative or signature drinks?
In this holiday guide
to our favorite (and some of the best cocktail bars) in Washington D.C., I focused on a few different criteria. With the help of inKind experts, we started by asking the obvious questions: do they serve the classics? Then, we expand from there: how does it feel to sit there? Do these spots have a good happy hour? What type of signature drinks do they have on the menu? How is their food: full menu, or just small plates?
Most of the spaces featured in this guide are available on the inKind app and with inKind Pass. Those not available on the inKind app are great holiday-themed spots that are just a hop, skip (or Uber ride) away from our partner restaurants.
