“Barmini (50 Best Discovery and a nominee for the Tales of a Cocktail Spirit Award for Best American Bar - East) is Chef José Andrés’ cocktail bar adjacent to his two star Michelin restaurant minibar in DC. The bar offers both cocktail flights as well as a la carte options and their drinks range from classic to modern. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to do the cocktail flight, but we were still able to sample some of their innovative cocktails like the Floral Cloud cocktail with gin, lemon, crème de violette, maraschino and hibiscus cloud, and the Divine Wind cocktail with chrysanthemum Shochu, orange liqueur, butterfly pea, citrus singani and according to them, even magic. They also have inventive bar snacks like the waffle with A1 wagyu and the bartenders are really friendly and attentive. DC may not be the most exciting city when it comes to food and drinks and this place may be on the pricier side, but it’s definitely worth checking out. Just make sure you reserve ahead of time because we saw people waiting for seats even at 11pm on a Tuesday.”
“Came here on my one free night, I work two jobs, my partner and I find very little time to savor together. I understand that this is a hotel, and covid has set so many boundaries (I'm industry myself) but I found the staff to be inattentive, unfriendly and uninterested. I know how hard it is to create a nice environment during this time, to serve. We had no idea their covid protocol, had trouble understanding if the required food order had gluten, and in our two hour given reservations period we only managed to get three drinks between us.I would have appreciated if Whiskey Charlie had taken more personal interest in folks and spent less time chatting at the bar where we as guests are forbidden to approach.”
“A nice, quiet environment; my friend and I were seated immediately at six on a Sunday evening. We ordered two different kinds of burgers (mine was lamb) and enjoyed them immensely! I didn't take pictures, but I really should've. Both plates were nicely crafted”
