Prohibition style speakeasies have been a little overdone, but at The Gibson, it’s more than just a secretive entrance and unlisted phone numbers. This 48-seat cocktail temple offers vintage pre-Prohibition drinks—think Sazerac, Manhattan, and other spirit-forward concoctions—as well as many other original crafted libations. The narrow room with high bar stools and flickering candles make for a great date spot, but it’s best for cocktail lovers looking for their regular spot in D.C.
