Try All Of These New Bars Coming Soon to D.C.

by Lanna Nguyen on May 31, 2016 in Roundups

With summer comes new bars to check out. Stop by the latest additions to the DC bar scene and keep an eye out for those opening soon.

Hoping to open next month, DC’s first cidery will ferment some of its cider on-site, with more to come from its production facility nearby. You can expect to find 30 ciders by the glass and almost 100 bottled options highlighting Basque cider. What better to go with your cider than pintxos, the Basque version of tapas? Opening in mid-June. (300 Florida Ave, NW)

Atlas Brew Works
The new 2,600 square foot taproom at Atlas Brew Works opened this past weekend and features 16 draft lines. It will be open seven days a week, with tours being offered on Saturdays every two hours from noon to 6 PM. Guests will still be able to bring their own food to the brewery or scope out the various food trucks that typically stop by. (2052 West Virginia Ave, NE; 202-832-0420)

Cappy’s Crabs
Seafood lovers rejoice! Popping up for the summer at the old Crane & Turtle space, Cappy’s Crabs will be serving up blue crabs, peel and eat shrimp, po’boys, steamed clams and more. Enjoy your seafood on picnic tables with Natty Bohs and Orange Crushes in hand. (828 Upshur St, NW; 202-702-2628)

Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana
The owners behind El Sol are closing their popular taqueria and opening a new restaurant on 14th Street with an expanded menu to include more seafood dishes like ceviche and Mexican-style small plates meant to be shared among groups. Keep an eye out for specialty drinks with a focus on tequilas and mezcals. Projected opening in July.

Radiator
Located in Kimpton’s Mason & Rook Hotel, the bar opened last month and celebrates 14th Street’s automotive history in its interior decor (think industrial feel and vintage car parts). Game enthusiasts can take advantage of the shuffleboard court on the patio or stay cool inside and play board games at the indoor bar, including chess and giant-sized Jenga and Connect Four. The cocktail menu offers an original twist on classic drinks. Case in point: Rickey Goes to Hawaii made with Aviation Gin, Lime, and Li Hing Powder. (1430 Rhode Island Ave, NW; 202-742-3150)

The newest addition to Yards Park and just steps from Nationals Park, this raw bar opened a few weeks ago and will be a great spot to hit up pre- or post baseball game. Here you’ll find shellfish towers, crudo, tempura fried soft shell crabs, and of course, plenty of raw oysters. (301 Water St, SE)
