I stopped in to Hank’s Oyster Bar for a quick glass of wine while waiting for a friend, and their malbec was perfection. Had I stayed, cocktails dubbed who gon’ check me boo consisting of tequila, blackberry, orange, tonic and I Know What Boys Like with Bacon Washed Rye, Blended Scotch Whiskey, Burnt Sugar, Bitters, Orange were next.
The casual atmosphere, beautiful open front (at the Capitol Hill location) and a friendly staff made my solo venture and downtime quite enjoyable. I almost ordered off the late night raw bar menu, but got a text to join up next door, so I passed. My mind is still on oysters and the ever-accurate DC take on New England classics, so I’ll be back!
With 4 locations, there’s plenty of options to check them out in DuPont Circle, Capitol Hill, The Wharf, and Old Town.
