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).

The Adams Morgan whiskey bar is encouraging all patrons and partygoers to celebrate like it’s 1933 at their 6th Annual Repeal Day Fete.
