5 Essential Hangover Cures in Washington, DC

5 Essential Hangover Cures in Washington, DC

Despite the best intentions (liquor before beer, anyone?), hangovers can happen to even the most seasoned drinkers. While everyone has their tried-and-true home remedies, there are a number of proven hangover cures available at bars and restaurants around the District. From hair-of-the-dog solutions to carb-filled comfort foods, here are five best bets for surviving and thriving after a hard night out.

Birch & Barley: With a slate of freshly fried donought holes, an entree (such as stomach-lining chicken 'n' waffles), bottomless coffee and your choice of two brunch cocktails, the Boozy Brunch at this Logan Circle restaurant is a sure cure for hitting it hard at upstairs ChurchKey the night before (1337 14th St. NW; 202-567-2576).

Founding Farmers: The Corpse Reviver cocktail (from, appropriately, the “Eye Openers” drink list) is a citrusy and refreshing mix of lemon, Cointreau, gin, absinthe and Lillet Blanc. Pair it with one of the Foggy Bottom eatery’s pan scrambles or farmhouse hashes to soak up the rest of that headache (1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; 202-822-8783).

Madhatter: One of Dupont’s classic late-night spots, this Alice in Wonderland-themed dive lures patrons back the next morning with the Hangover Helper, a heaping plate of biscuits, eggs, home fries, cheese, bacon, gravy and toast. Need something a little stiffer? The $7 Bloody Mary bar and $12 unlimited mimosas are both great deals (1319 Connecticut Ave. NW; 202-833-1495).

Poste: This Penn Quarter brasserie is famous for its hangover-helping Bloody Mary bar with house-infused vodkas in flavors like bacon and horseradish-chili. Customize yours with an impressive array of juices, sauces, spices and garnishes (555 8th St. NW; 202-783-6060).

Eatonville: This 14 Street spot’s Southern-inspired fare is a sure bet for brunch the morning after. The Eggs & Fixings special — just $10 — includes scrambled eggs, a buttery buttermilk biscuit, your choice of meat and a side such as mac 'n' cheese or Eatonville hash. Pair it with the lavender lemonade or homemade sweet tea and you may be reaching for the cocktail menu sooner than you think (2121 14th St. NW; 202-332-9672).
