There’s never been a better time to be thirsty in Washington, D.C., where craft brewing and distilling are booming simultaneously. The city has an undeniably strong bar scene — not only do hardworking locals like to kick back with a cocktail, but District denizens also consume the most wine per capita in the country. Here are 12 locales that should be a part of any imbibing itinerary, from breweries and a distillery to the trendiest places to order drinks. Cheers!
Check out the full gallery for more places to quench your thirst.
Cherry blossom season is in full swing in Washington, D.C., and this year the city is celebrating 100 years of its cherry blossom trees. National Cherry Blossom Festival coordinators have been recruiting dozens of local bars and restaurants to serve dishes inspired by D.C.’s famous buds. You can sample all of them — including this cherry blossom milkshake from Good Stuff Eatery ($3.75 to $5.25; goodstuffeatery.com) and cherry macaroons from Adour ($20 per dozen; adour-washingtondc.com) — throughout the centennial celebration, March 20 to April 27.
For a full list of cherry blossom specials at D.C.-area restaurants, visit Nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/cherrypicks.
