Columbia Room (124 Blagden Alley NW) is set to debut the first tasting menu created by newly appointed Beverage Manager Paul Taylor on Tuesday, August 6. The menu, titled “So Bad, It’s Good,” pays homage to once-lowbrow drinks with high-low mashup creations that are simultaneously nostalgic and forward-thinking.

Offerings include:


Siembra Valles Tequila, Riesling, Angelica, Vanilla, Salt, Lemon-Lime Soda

Long Island Iced Tea

St. George Terroir Gin, Absolut Elyx Vodka, Green Pepper Rum, Spanish Vermouth, Amaro, Fresh Sour Mix, Cola
