One of the hidden gems of the district is Off the Record. It was recently chosen by Forbes.com as one of the “World’s Best Hotel Bars.” Locally it is known as downtown Washington’s best “place to be seen and not heard.” Located in the basement of The Hay-Adams Hotel the bar is populated with the young professions that spend their days on Capital Hill, giving the bar a ‘young professional’ aura.
A great place to enjoy a good drink and a light meal, Off The Record is not to pricey and is worth the trip for the classy company and intimate setting that makes you feel in the center of DC nightlife. Guests have praised the restaurants wine selection, premium liqour and great food. The burgers and french onion soup are our favorites, but let us know if you had a great meal off of this menu in the comments below. Haven’t been there yet?
