Bars in DC Open on Thanksgiving

Make your escape
Bars in DC Open on Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a time to gather with a large group of people somehow related to you to eat a huge meal. Whether you’re one of the lucky folk with aspiring home chefs in the family, one of the less fortunate who has to make it through another one of Aunt Joan’s dry drumsticks and not-quite-tasty stuffing, or – especially – if you’re preparing the feast yourself, the day can be exhausting. Luckily, there are several drinking establishments around the city that will be open at least part of the evening, so you can escape the clutches of commitment and get ready to cure that turkey hangover with a real one. Check our list below, and have a great holiday. Perhaps we’ll raise a glass with you later on!
