Bourbon stands out within the rowdy Adams Morgan area for its refinement. Exposed brick walls, antique chandeliers, and a dark, glossy bar create a warm atmosphere inside, while the airy terrace makes for the perfect retreat from the DC summer. We come for the cozy ambiance and friendly staff but stay for the crafty cocktail menu, vintage bourbon flights, and Scotch whiskey tastings.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Something trendy-casual, like dark skinny jeans, a floaty top, and a pair of funky heels.

A date; coworkers; friends
A mix of Adams Morgan locals and hip 20-/30-somethings, with a mature college set later in the night.
WHY WE LIKE IT
In a neighborhood that’s often overrun with stumbling students, Bourbon provides a refined, relaxed atmosphere for those who like a more mature but equally delightful night out on the town.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The bar is a bit far from the Metro. And although we love coming in for a night of imbibing, we’ve heard the dining experience leaves something to be desired…
GOOD TO KNOW
Bourbon’s original location in Glover Park is also a great spot for cocktails, especially if you are averse to crowds and staying in that neighborhood.
