In the basement of an Italian restaurant off the very-gay 17th Street, in Dupont Circle, is Dito’s Bar. Barely bigger than a king-sized bed and tucked down a flight of stone stairs on the outside patio, Dito’s is run by Dito, considered by many the unofficial mayor of 17th Street. He’s been serving drinks and hosting at the tiny hideaway for a decade now, and is beloved by the gay and straight crowds alike.
