Bars in D.C. Open on New Year's Day

Hair of the Dog?
Bars in D.C. Open on New Year's Day

The first day of the year offers tipplers an interesting conundrum: after partying the night before (and – to be honest – most of the week before), what should one do on January 1? Some may choose to spend the entire day in bed, alternately dosing with aspirin and chocolate. Others might get the kinks out by taking to nature with a bike ride or hike. And then, there’s the rest of us, who know enough to get our hair of the dog on at one of the several bars and restaurants open just for us. Check our list of open establishments and specials below.
