America's Best Outdoor Bars
Poste Moderne Brasserie, Washington, D.C.
Housed in the original 1841 General Post Office building, Poste’s Parisian-style courtyard overflows with plants and herbs that are used to infuse vodkas for its Punch Bar. The outdoor fun continues in winter, when Poste sets up a hot cocktail and fondue bar outside with heaters, blankets and fire pits. Cocktails include This Little Piggy (bacon-infused Bulleit bourbon, spicy cayenne chocolate, milk and toasted marshmallow), and Mother’s Warmth (hot mulled apple cider made with Pyrat rum, mulled apple cider, and brandied cranberries).
