We are going to the Rosslyn Spectrum for a show on Saturday night at 8pm. Any fun bars/lounges or even restaurants in the area for cocktails and appetizers or small plates?

Thanks!

    Go to Eleventh Street Lounge- far and away the best food in the area in the setting you're talking about.

      11th is indeed a great spot but more Clarendon than Rosslyn (not sure if you guys are walking, driving, metro, etc.). Rosslyn is a bit limited but there is Cafe Asia for cocktails and sushi. Guajillo for sangria, margaritas, apps. Piola is a fairly new Italian place with a large menu with tons of appetizers and some pretty good drinks...pretty casual though. Mezza 9 at the Hyatt is Mediterranean and has some dinner tapas. Never been there though. Good luck!

        I wouldn't put Mezza 9 in a fun atmosphere category, although I have eaten there and didn't think it was bad. I had pretty decent food, but for the price I've had better in DC.

          I had a feeling it would be a typical overpriced hotel restaurant. In the Courthouse area there is Guarapo's which has decent food, drinks, pretty loungy atmosphere.
