The Dupont Circle Hotel
Settle into this chic bar at the renovated Dupont Circle Hotel. The upscale vintage decor will make you feel like you are in one of the most stylish spaces of yesteryear. Drinks are inspired by the cocktails of the ‘50s and ‘60s and feature classics plus some fun modern takes. There is also an extremely diverse and varied list of spirits, with a heavy focus on all types of whiskey.
This micro-luxe cocktail bar is one of the best parts about the iconic Hamilton Hotel, which just went through a major renovation. It’s an intimate bar and lounge with only 14 seats, so make sure you show up right when it opens at 5pm. The Art Deco decor features wood paneling, distressed leather, and diamond chandeliers for a bit of a skull and bones vibe. Try the colorful Society on K cocktail with gin, Blue Curacao, creme de violette, sour mix, egg white, and lavender and cardamom bitters.
