Degrees Bar & Lounge

3100 S. St. N.W.
Washington, DC, 20007, United States
TEL: (202) 912-4100

This chic outpost at the Ritz Carleton in Georgetown boasts an upper-crust clientele and a New York state of mind. Impeccably dressed patrons knock back classic cocktails in a retro-1940's space favoring warm hues and exposed brick walls. Comfortable despite its high-caliber clientele, Degrees' adjacent lounge hosts a piano and a warming fireplace, making it a cozy spot for a nip and some complimentary s'mores (available from 6:30-7 p.m. evenings). Degrees' Rendezvous at The Ritz happy hour provides a welcome alternative to its predictably sky-high prices, offering half-priced cocktails and appetizers from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. daily.

Insider Tip:

The hotel is known to host a who's who of notables, so hang out in the lobby lounge for a possible celebrity sighting (Bruce Springsteen and Maroon 5 were in residence for the 2009 inauguration.).
