11th and Lamont St, NW
From a press release:
“WHAT: Room 11, neighborhood bar and restaurant, celebrates their eight year anniversary on Thursday, August 24th. Over those eight years, Room 11 has consistently been a favorite neighborhood gathering place, a destination for creative variations on classic cocktails, and home of an evolving bottle collection that fills both its rooms. With more changes on the way, this anniversary celebrates the bar’s origins and contributions from past and present staff that guide Room 11’s personality and hospitality.
To celebrate, the bar will offer a few Room 11 classics for $8 each. This includes the signature Burnt Sugar Old Fashioned and Strawberry, Peach, Jalapeño St. Germain Sangria, and more. Dishes from the kitchen’s original menu will also be available for $8 each.
Room 11 opened its doors on August 10th, 2009 with partners Nick Pimentel, Paul Ruppert, Dan Searing Jr., and Ben Gilligan at the helm. The aim was to establish a neighborhood bar with a thoughtful wine list and creative cocktails, but without the pretense that typically surrounds those two components. The coffee bar expansion in 2012 highlighted Paisley Fig baker and owner Lizzy Evelyn, now preparing to open a standalone location in Mount Pleasant.
WHEN: Thursday, August 24th
5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. (or until specials run out)”
