    Here, the bartenders concoct some mean speciality cocktails like the Old Fashioned, with Maker's Mark and simple syrup or the Alan's Love, pear vodka mixed with St. Germaine, honey. Read more

    People watching at its best. DC unites to loosen up and watch the wildlife. Be strong at table tag, chaps outnumber chairs. Get the snack tray and always bring your VISA. **** #mayormorris #SealofApv

    An elit by Stolichnaya martini is the way to go! High quality, clean, smoothe, and delicious taste profile. No mixing necessary! One of the best vodkas available here!

    The patio is great for lounging with a cigar rated 92 or above. Bar Dupont is known for its signature cocktails, but the gourmet burger with frites is surprisingly good.

    Happy hour ends at 6 pm. Cocktails are good and if you get them in happy hour they are reasonably priced. Good place to get a pre dinner drink.

    Absolutely delicious cocktails with a fabulous outdoor patio that's great for late spring afternoons. Fries are tasty. Everything is expensive.

    Nice location & decor. Decent drinks at Happy Hour. Bar staff was inconsistently attentive, more conversing with colleagues than consumers. Had sticky spots on floor from drink spills. Will go again.

    The truffle fries have to be laced with crack. Easily the best in town. Oh and get the warm choc chip cookies for dessert. Delicious.

    If you are mood for a cocktail, you can't go wrong with the Alan's Love - light, refreshing, not too sweet, and just a little tart.

    IMHO, the true test of a fine restaurant is the salad dressing on a plain green salad. The vinaigrette here is really great.
