Hanging out in DC

I will be in the DC area with the wifey sat, in the GWU area. Is there a place to hang out rather than Georgetown? We will be there around 10pm.

If not what are good places to eat around GWU or Georgetown.

  1. Are you willing to jump on the metro or hop in a cab to go elsewhere?

    If so it really depends on the vibe you are looking for and if you want to just drink, hang out and sip coffee, or grab something to eat. I would recommend going to either U St., Dupont (not that far from GWU) or Gallery Place Chinatown. Depending on what you are looking for I can give you recommendations for these 3 areas.

    1. Like a bar? Tonic would be a good place to start. Founding Farmers has a nice bar setup, as does Circle Bistro. Decent food at Tonic, pretty darn good at Founding Farmers and Circle Bistro. There are many more places, but this is just to start all on or very close to campus.
