by Lanna Nguyen on Nov 28, 2017 in Roundups

 
Repeal Day (December 5) marks the passage of the 21st Amendment and the end of Prohibition. District denizens across the city will be celebrating by imbibing classic cocktails and partying it up at special events and parties. Here’s where you should celebrate the 84th anniversary of the end of forced tee-totaling.

Copycat Co.
The sultry cocktail bar located on the second floor of the two-story H Street spot that slings Chinese street food offers plenty of old-school drinks perfect for sipping on Repeal Day. Devin Gong’s menu rotates weekly, but can you always expect the classics like Old Fashioneds, Rickeys, Daiquiris, Manhattans and Martinis. (1110 H St, NE; 202-241-1952).

DC Craft Bartender’s Guild 10th Annual Repeal Day Ball
The 10th annual iteration of the DC Craft Bartender’s Guild Repeal Day Ball will take place at the Mellon Auditorium. Attendees will enjoy craft cocktails curated by the district’s best bartenders all against a Prohibition-era setting. Tickets start at $90.

Jack Rose Dining Saloon
The Adams Morgan whiskey bar is encouraging all patrons and partygoers to celebrate like it’s 1933 at their 6th Annual Repeal Day Fete. The 1930’s inspired soiree will feature burlesque dancers; Prohibition-era whiskey, cocktails and punches; and a costume contest - come dressed in your best flapper attire for a chance to win cocktails at Dram & Grain. December 5, 5 PM - close. (2007 18th St, NW; 202-588-7388)

Service Bar
