Venue Info

The team behind Stateside opened a small, next door bar called Foreign National, and it will run under the same, Vietnamese influence. Capitol Hill’s Saigon speakeasy, open daily from 5pm to 1am, seats about 25 guests, and serves them Vietnamese-inspired cocktails and Asian street food-style snacks (get the chicken curry puffs). The lounge’s atmosphere and dim, almost nonexistent lighting make it a great spot for a date, or for cocktails before or after your dinner next door. Expect elevated, sometimes molecular tweaks on classics, like a Long Thailand Iced Tea, a cognac-kissed Singapore Sling, and a Sazerac stirred with liquid nitrogen. And all the Japanese whiskey you could ever want.
