A friend of my parents' will be in town in a few weeks and wants to grab a drink Friday at 5:30. All of us meeting like a classic and well made bourbon cocktail. Looking for a reasonable place that knows how to mix a drink to grab a few. Somewhere that can make drinks like Death & Co but without the crowd/ pretentious atmosphere. Can be a restaurant's bar if comfy.
She's staying around University and 12th St so something in the GV/USQ vicinity is best.
I don't like The Dove, I think it's claustrophobic.
Was thinking of Rose Bar, but $20 drinks is a bit much.
Gotham Bar and Grill?
Bar at Little Washington Hotel?
Thanks for the help!
