The 10 Best Hotel Bars in the World
End your night with the perfect nightcap
3. Bar at the Tabard Inn, Washington, D.C.
In this era of flea-market aesthetics, it's refreshing to discover a bar that feels broken in because it actually is. At first glance, the crowd at this century-old Dupont Circle institution looks like it's composed of policy wonks who might let think-tank business spill over into cordials, but those guys are here for the same reason you are: to relax over a nouveau bourbon rickey while reclining in a fireside armchair worn in by nothing but asses and time.
