The Watergate Hotel
If the rooftop is open, grab a drink there on a nice day! Otherwise, there is a fancy whiskey bar on the lobby floor of this iconic hotel
The rooftop bar is beautiful for views of the entire city. The drinks are a little pricey, but go for happy hour and catch the sunset over the water. Amazing!
“This is a great place to walk to! Football and burgers...or brunch! They are open late, can always drop in for a bite or a beer.”
“Upscale Italian food with great wine and cocktail list. This is one of my favorite Italian spots in DC. It is smaller plates, but delicious. Also, they have a great bar that also serves a number of mocktails. Sfoglina is about 1.3 miles down the road in Van Ness. I have certainly walked to/from there on a nice evening. You can also take a short uber/Lyft ride there or take the redline 2 metro stops to Van Ness.”
“The food is just okay, but the margaritas are great and it is always bustling and a fun place to hang out.”
“Fast and casual tex-mex food specializing in tacos and Mission-style burritos. Its name derives from chipotle, the Nahuatl name for a smoked and dried jalapeño chili pepper. In reality the food is not that spicy but it is super tasty.”
