Hey guys! I hope you are all having an awesome week thus far. I know it’s only Tuesday, but I’m already looking forward to the weekend. I had such a great time hanging out in DC with the bf Saturday. After teaching piano at Peabody, we decided to grab drinks and food at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown to relax. The Living Room was beyond gorgeous – it was a beautiful space with fab ambiance featuring exposed brick, a 130 foot wood fireplace, and luxe seating.
While we were there, we tried two of their fabulous cocktails: The Peruvian Hemingway and The English Elixir. The former was a pineapple infused pisco with lime juice, simple syrup, and a luxardo cherry, while the latter had angel’s envy bourbon, maple syrup, earl grey tea, clove, angostura bitters, and an orange + lemon slice. Both of these drinks were on point, but my fave was def. the Hemingway. At $17, these don’t come cheap, BUT keep in mind, they come with complimentary fireside bites and you get free valet parking.
We were pretty hungry so we ended up ordering two “small” dishes: Charcuterie and TJ’s Crab Mac-N-Cheese. The platter featured a bunch of local noms and the mac had copious amounts of Chesapeake crab and featured fresh black truffle.
A closer look at The Peruvian Hemingway – easily one of the best drinks I’ve had in the DC area.
A shot of the accompanying fireside bites – both were DELISH! The cracker assortment was super flavorful and complemented the drinks beautifully – the white platter pictured below came with pickled veggies, marinated olives, and whipped feta with crackers.
If you’re looking for a cool place to chill in DC after getting your work on, make sure you check out The Living Room! It’s an AWESOME place for date night if you’re looking to impress. Come for pre-weekend activities – it’s a great place to grab a drink before hitting up the town! They also have a badass happy hour from 5-7 on Mondays-Fridays so come check it out for yourself because it sure as hell beats sitting in traffic.
A huge thanks to The Living Room & TAA PR for hosting us!
