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.

This looks awesome. Thanks to Bill for sending. Does the Glen’s Garden Market Shaw location have one too?

Where else can we find a fire pit for some outdoor autumn/winter drinking?

Update from Glen’s, it’s the:

“Glen’s Cocoa Lodge

​DC loves a good patio and we’ve found a way to make sure ours don’t go unused this winter! Glen’s Cocoa Lodge are winter getaways in Dupont Circle and Shaw. We invite our Neighbors to cozy up by the fire with hot chocolate, $4 local craft beers and wines by the glass, and delicious food from our delis. The Cocoa Lodges are first come, first serve seating, but we are offering reservations for private groups.”

From a press release:

“Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW), the master developer of the $2.5 billion, world-class mixed use waterfront neighborhood The Wharf, announces the October 2017 opening of its rooftop bar and lounge, Whiskey Charlie. Located along the Southwest Waterfront, Whiskey Charlie will sit atop the newly constructed Canopy by Hilton Washington DC | The Wharf hotel and boasts spectacular views of the Washington Channel, as well as DC’s iconic monument and memorials.

HMW and its hotel operator, Concord Hospitality Enterprises, engaged Endurance Management Group (EMG) to create a premium destination rooftop cocktail bar and lounge for hotel guests, residents, and visitors of The Wharf. Patrons will enjoy breathtaking waterfront views along with a curated menu of craft cocktails, lite bites, best-in-class service, and inviting atmosphere. The name is a nod to the proud maritime history and active waterfront location; “Whiskey Charlie” or “WC” is the call signal for boat captains entering the Washington Channel.

“Whiskey Charlie is intended to be both the ideal spot to start and end your evening on the waterfront,” said Mark Laport, Concord Hospitality’s President and CEO. “It enriches our vision to create irresistible spaces within vibrant communities, and we look forward to welcoming visitors and locals alike later this fall.”

Ten floors up, the 2,200-square-foot, elevated space features an outdoor rooftop terrace with seating coves, a firepit and large planters. The glass-enclosed interior lounge features reclaimed wood and porcelain and metallic tiles to create an intimate bar with incredible panoramic views from Rosslyn to National Harbor. The Wharf’s first rooftop bar and lounge, Whiskey Charlie, joins nearly 20 food establishments opening at The Wharf this fall including Del Mar by Fabio and Maria Trabocchi, Requin by Mike Isabella and Jennifer Carroll, Hank’s Oyster Bar by Jamie Leeds, and much more.

After 5 years at our Trinidad location on Bladensburg Rd NE, we moved to Navy Yard.”
