SERIOUSLY, MAKE THIS HEAT WAVE STOP. DC’s set to have the hottest week on record this summer. But, doing what Washingtonians do best, you can beat the heat by drinking at any one of these relaxing, air-conditioned spots on the cheap.
Donovan’s Day Off: The Donovan House is kicking off a weekly Monday night party featuring Gavin Holland and a different DJ friend each week with $5 beers and half-price frozen drinks, sangria, and wine. Oh, and did we mention it’s on a rooftop? With a pool? And the party goes all night long.
Hotel Monaco: Is your dog hella thirsty too? Bring him or her to this spot in Alexandria on Tuesdays or Thursdays for free water and dog treats during “Yappy Hour.”
Table: Enjoy Table’s shaded rooftop area with $6 glasses of wine, $7 beers, and $5 snacks from 5 – 7 p.m. on Monday nights.
Cuba Libre: Celebrate Ernest Hemingway’s 114th birthday/National Daiquiri Day (a.k.a. the BEST combination of reasons to party) on July 19 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. with bar bites and the specialty Caipirinhas and Caipiorskas drinks for $5 each.
