Washington DC

At first glance, there’s probably not a lot about Washington DC that screams ‘great nightlife’. The home of American democracy and legislation, the city even has an officially-recognised signature cocktail. Despite its perceived stiff upper lip, DC is actually one of the most creative cocktail cities in the US. Espita Mezcaleria boasts an impressive menu of mezcal, Barmini serves up boundary-breaking cocktails, while Columbia Room offers a cocktail “tasting menu”.
