    In 1850, Senator Clay mixed the first mint julep in D.C. and since then has become the bar's signature drink. In fact, the original recipe is still used with the ingredients on display at the bar. Read more

    Far from impressed by the service and the drinks. Additionally, staff gave me attitude for ordering two drinks while my companion was in the restroom. Needless to say, I won't be back.

    “You adopt the universal habit of the place and call for a mint-julep, a whiskey-skin, a gin-cocktail...for the conviviality of Washington sets in at an early hour,” wrote Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1862

    Ask for Jim to make you a 'Willard' and to give you a quick history lesson.

    You'll never feel old again. Believe me, who ever is next to you , you can address as "sir" or " madam". But a classier place you will not find!

    Not exactly a young crowd. (Read: lots old guys in blue blazers and khakis.) But the wine was great and you always see someone notable there. A dignified DC watering hole.
