Cocktails in DC!

Hi everyone!

I just moved here from San Francisco and am wondering about good cocktails/bartenders to check out in DC. So far I tried the Gibson (I loved the atmosphere and was impressed by its ice! But the drinks seemed so complex!). Any other thoughts out there? So far I've looked up a place called Wisdom. Looks interesting.

  1. There are some good drinks at Proof in Chinatown.
    Not DC proper... but, In old town, there's the place above Eammon's called PX.

    1. PS7. No doubt.

      1. My 2 go to spots are PS7 and Central. Both has excellent (seasonal) drink choices and friendly bartenders. Plus it doesn't hurt that you can get top notch food choices at both spots.

        1. Jake at Marvin
          Kris at Proof
          All the bartenders at Cafe St. Ex and the Heights

          1. The bar at Bourbon Steak in the Four Seasons. They're class acts. Also, PS7. And PX is wonderful but hard to get into, so you can also find Todd Thrasher's wonderful cocktails and highly trained bartenders at The Majestic, also in Old Town.
