From a press release:

“To kick-off patio season, Morris American Bar is excited to announce its casual outdoor companion will open on Tuesday, May 15th with an enticing selection of fix-style cocktails. Aptly named Fix Bar, the menu’s fix drinks – which came into popularity in the 19th century – may be likened to boozy (read: deliciously grown-up) snowcones. These non-traditional sour cocktails are always served over crushed ice and feature a base spirit, citric acid, and sweetener (e.g., sugar, honey, liqueur) – making them a quintessential outdoor libation.

Fix Bar’s casual and dog-friendly patio is a departure from Morris’ sophisticated and dreamy interior. Master barman David Strauss – who honed his meticulous affinity for service and technique while training under the late Sasha Petraske (Milk & Honey, Dutch Kills, Varnish) – brings a playful and lighthearted approach to cocktailing at Fix Bar, boozy snowcones and all. Guests seeking to relax and unwind will find Fix Bar is an everyday oasis with minimal restrictions.

Fix Bar has capacity for 60 guests and is walk-in only.


Daily rotating menu of fix drinks ($12), each made with fresh squeezed juice and housemade syrups. A selection of canned rosé from House Wine and local DC beers (3 Stars, Anxo, Atlas Brew Works, DC Brau, and Right Proper Brewing Company) will also be available for $8 each.

Among Fix Bar’s opening day fix selections include:

Bramble – gin, lemon, blackberry
Yankee Julep – rye, fresh mint, raw sugar
Honey Whiskey – bourbon, lemon, honey
Sheppard Cocktail – apple brandy, crème de menthe
Queen’s Park Swizzle – white rum, lime, mint, angostura bitters


Fix Bar is the second concept from seasoned cocktail craftsman David Strauss (Sheppard, Barmini/Minibar, Le Diplomate) and hospitality veteran Vinoda Basnayake (HEIST, Sheppard, Ivy Room).


Public Opening: Tuesday, May 15

Hours of Operation: Tuesday through Thursday, 6pm to 12am; Friday and Saturday, 6pm to 2am; Sunday, 6pm to 12am. Closed Mondays
