It’s the perfect night out for cocktail connoisseurs and jazz aficionados alike.
Drink in the local spirit
We’ll visit several of our favorite bars and restaurants, carefully curated for their contributions to our story about the history of the neighborhood….and a couple have been recognized by the famed Michelin guide! Between the opportunities we’ve coordinated to imbibe and taste award-winning cuisine, you’ll see and hear all about the street art, architecture, and evolving history of this iconic DC neighborhood. We’ve preselected tasty bites we think everyone will enjoy (and always have a vegetarian option – select the vegetarian option when you book) and you’ll have a choice between a couple of specialty cocktails at each stop. Our experience ends in a place where we think you might just choose to relax for a bit, so consider keeping the evening open after your tour!
Aside from carefully curated cocktails, plentiful tastings, and fascinating history, your experience includes custom photos of your tour. A portion of each tour ticket is donated to our charity partner and is enough to feed a local resident in need for the whole day, three full meals.
