The world’s most famous Catholic is in D.C. and the city is getting ready to celebrate. And by celebrate I mean curse all-things-WMATA to hell. But for those actually planning to celebrate once the commute to work is over, we’ve compiled a list of happy hours even the Pope would approve of. Behold, the Vatican’s favorite drink, red wine.
Vinoteca – We know it’s implied in the name, but Vinoteca’s wine list is very impressive. They have a great selection of wines from both Italy and Argentina (shout out to Mendoza and Malbec) and have even categorized their selection by the wines’ personalities those adjectives being flirty, saucy, and serious. Very necessary. Also, bocce ball.
Flight Wine Bar – The typical happy hour at Flight is Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Fortunately, they’re closed on Sunday so you can get your immoral ass to church, but be ready to get sinful post-repentance, because on Mondays happy hour is #all #day #long.
Jug & Table – If you somehow ended up in Adams Morgan and don’t know how to escape the college crowd surrounding Jumbo Slice, go to the basement of Roofers Union and get yourself a $25 jug of wine. That’s over two bottles’ worth of wine to share with your friends. Or, if you’re feeling gluttonous, just yourself. Hey, it’s not Lent yet, right?
Bayou Bakery – Feeling like the bar scene is going to haunt you on Judgment Day? Bayou Bakery in Capitol Hill offers half-priced bottles of wine on Thursdays, just in time for you to unwind once the Pope has left D.C.
Cork Wine Bar – Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. you’ll get a ~special price~ on wines that are off the list. Blood of Christ, that’s amazing.
