Dupont Circle

Bar Rouge

1315 16th St. N.W.
Hotel Rouge
Washington, DC, 20036, United States
TEL: (202) 232-8000

This swanky watering hole with over-the-top décor is half hotel restaurant and half hopping DC nightspot. At home in Dupont Circle's bohemian Hotel Rouge, Bar Rouge serves small-plate bistro fare and wine on tap in an atmosphere of conscious sensuality, attracting an upscale locals crowd from happy hour through late nights. Ruby hues predominate throughout the intimate space favoring subdued lighting, animal prints, and velvet-covered furnishings. Equally provocative are the cocktail names ("The Adulteress," for example), which are fun to read through whether you're imbibing or not.

Insider Tip:

If you're visiting with a group, ask if a private room is available.
