  • Jim Hewes is one of the best bartenders in DC. Great history from this guy.
  • Check out the Whisky Bar in the hall up the stairs. They have a wide selection of Scotch.
  • 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.
  • Ask for Jim to make you a 'Willard' and to give you a quick history lesson.
  • 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.
