Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

I went to The Next Whisky Bar in part through wanting to walk around the famed Watergate complex, but also searching for a good whiskey bar. To say The Next Whisky Bar isn't classy or impressive would be so far off the mark! Located as part of the Watergate hotel in the lobby, the staff and setting here is fantastic; the walls made of empty bottles with the golden light glow are definitely impressive. And, as could be expected, the whisky selection here...bourbon, rye, scotch, Irish....is incredible! So, why the three-star review? Well, simply the prices. Yup, in a classy and trendy whisky bar, I expected things to be expensive, but.....I ordered a flight of basically mid-tiered Irish Whiskey. I figured $40+ bucks for three tastes (each bottle in the flight would retail for $40-70) was a bit pricey, but for three whiskeys, I'd be OK with that. What came out was almost insulting. Barely a mouthful in each tasting glass; between the three, less than an ounce of whiskey! Not even enough to get good tastes of each. Against better judgement, I ordered another Irish Whiskey (retailing for about $60), since the atmosphere was at least enjoyable. Yeah, that one Whiskey came in at $30. But at least it was an ounce pour. So, well over $70 for 2 ounces of mid-tier Irish Whiskey....not exactly what I would call a great use of money. So, despite a great atmosphere and a wonderful whiskey selection, I will never come here again due to the obvious price gouging.

Adnan is an awesome bartender who treated me with kindness, respect, and grace under pressure. He also made two cocktails for me that were both so fantastic, I’m sure I’ll be coming back just to have one more. The set up of the bar itself is very modern, hip, chic, and cool but not even close to as cool as Adnan. He recommended a few places to order food, both inside and outside of the Watergate Hotel, as well as recommended some great whiskeys for me to try with my old fashioned in the future. I can only hope that the rest of the bartenders and mixologists that I encounter in my travels will be have as suave and professional as Adnan was with me during my visit to The Next Whisky Bar.
