Where to Drink in D.C.'s Navy Yard

by Lanna Nguyen on Oct 29, 2018 in Roundups

 
One of the city’s fastest growing neighborhoods, Navy Yard is home to a plethora of bars and restaurants with more on the horizon. Here are our picks for top spots to eat, drink and be merry.
 
Dine on artisanal pizzas and Italian-American dishes featuring seasonal ingredients at the riverfront outpost of All Purpose. Must-try pizzas include the Rockaway with parm fonduta, NJ clams, smoked bacon, scallion and lemon; the Sedgewick with whipped ricotta, mozz, tallegio, parm, truffle honey ahd chives; and the Mulberry with tomato, mozza, stracchino, roasted broccoli, Italian sausage, sweet peppers and toasted sesame. Pair your pizza with local beers and cocktails that include boozy frozen Italian water ices. The spacious restaurant offers patio seating as well as a second story outdoor deck, perfect for al fresco dining and drinking when the weather permits. (79 Potomac Ave, SE; 202-629-1894)
 
A brewery complete with restaurant and bar, the conveniently located Bluejacket is just steps away from Nationals Park and is an ideal destination for pre or post game drinking. If baseball is not your thing, the brewery is still a great spot during off-season months featuring a roster of over 15 draft beers and a food menu that includes everything from oysters, fried pickles, diver scallops, a falafel burger, charcuterie plates and everything in between. (300 Tingey St., SE; 202-524-4862)
 
The Navy Yard neighborhood is home to DC’s first winery. With over 15 wines by the glass and seasonal American fare at its restaurant, Ana, open for lunch, brunch and dinner. Vino lovers can indulge in discounted glasses of wine during happy hour. Guests can also sign up for a tour of the urban winery to learn about the wine-making process and end with a tasting of seven of the Winery’s varietals. (385 Water St, SE; 202-484-9210)
 
Find Italian fare ranging from pastas to paninis to charcuterie boards. Take advantage of Morini Mondays offered during select months where patrons can enjoy a whole pasta dish for half the price during dinner service. Come spring and summertime, the restaurant operates an outpost dockside dubbed Osteria Morini, with frozen negronis and smaller bites perfect for al fresco snacking. (301 Water St, SE; 202-484-0660)
 
The fast-casual Indian joint boasts bright, vibrant interiors with tables and fun swinging chairs that seamlessly transition to an outdoor seating area. Snag your customizable bowls (the turmeric ginger shrimp paired with charred eggplant is a winning combination) and be sure to pop by during happy hour where wine, draft margaritas and gin and tonics, and draft beer are all $5 a pop - offered Monday - Friday from 3 PM - 7 PM. (1247 First St, SE; 202-804-5678)
 
Chef Kyle Bailey’s oyster and ale house is guaranteed to be packed before and after Nats game days with plenty of outdoor seating for larger groups. The menu features New England seafood standbys including clam chowder, fried clam bellies, and lobster rolls in addition to freshly shucked oysters and other raw bar items. Sip on your choice of over 15 draft beers, wine and cocktails - including the popular Del's Frozen Shandy. (79 Potomac Ave, SE; 202-506-2368)
