Behind the rowdy Passenger lies the Columbia Room, a prayer nook of a bar that has maintained its reputation as one of D.C.’s best cocktail experiences. Served like a tasting menu, Derek Brown’s cocktails are both a lesson in history (expect old-school punches) and precision (perfect Martinis are, well, perfect here). With just ten seats, this would be the place to go to learn a thing or two, impress a date or make friends with people who know how to mix booze.
