Why locals love it
High-end meets hipster in this Columbia Heights neighborhood watering hole. Equal parts drinking and small plates for evenings, with a neighborhood favorite brunch menu on the weekends. The drink and food menus are exacting, with daily and seasonal changes. Their house cocktail list is small, with one cocktail per spirit done perfectly.
Why you should visit it
Whether you're looking for a romantic night out, or some bites and booze with friends, Room 11 is an indie/hipster, high-end dream. During warm weather, they also boast an outdoor patio. They don't take reservations so you'll have to show up in the knick of time, like a proper regular. It's a great vibe for nights, and a great menu for brunch.
For winos, the dessert wine list is extensive!
