Tips

  • Quiet, off the beaten track lounge located in East Capitol Hill, specializing in delicious cocktails made with fresh fruit and the largest Absinthe selection in the city.
  • Great date spot. Custom crafted cocktails are exceptional. Saffron infused old raj gin martini is a favorite.
  • Purple rain is the best drink ever!
  • Amazingly dark and cozy feel. Special drink tastings and events are held throughout the year. Eric, the "gintender" is fabulous and will help you find the perfect drink for your taste.
  • Save your time and go to Trusty's!
  • We love Bluecoat Gin and you should too! Luckily, they've got an entire page dedicated to Bluecoat Cocktails...maybe you should order one?
  • so sexy. LOVE this place. got a PB&J martini that was killer once.
  • Rain is always a hit.
  • Amazing one of a kind drinks! And Donna is the best bartender! Come see her on a Monday nights if youre in town or a local!
  • Gin cocktails
  • Fantastic drinks and ambiance.
  • Mother of dragonsssssss!!!!
  • Ask about martinis!
  • Gin's my poison, so I love this bar. If for some reason you don't drink gin, though, they do have a large selection of liquor. And they're so friendly!
  • Very low-key place. The house pickleback was delicious. The cocktails (Pears of Wisdom was my favorite of the bunch) were ok, but not mind-blowing. Steer clear of the PB&J cocktail.
  • What a quirky, fun little cocktail bar that is somehow not super crowded. Every drink I tried was great but they specialize in gin and absinthe cocktails.
  • They'll make a personalized cocktail
  • The signature gin drinks are stellar to start out with.
  • Dim, fun, & sometimes peculiar people milling around.
  • Best cocktails in DC. Crazy selection of gins. I like the sophomore Sazerac which has whiskey and absinthe. Pears of Wisdom is so good too! Tanya behind the bar is awesome!
