Our good friend, nightlife and bar maven Barred in DC, recently shared a comprehensive list of all the hip, happenin’ and happiest spots around town to ring in 2019. (Possible catchphrase for 2019: “I can’t suck any worse than 2016, amirite?”–which strangely hasn’t been a reassuring catchphrase coming from 2017 or 2018) He was kind enough to pass on the Capitol Hill area highlights to us, which we are sharing with you here.
