Columbia Room, Washington DC

4.3
Columbia Room is a cocktail bar created by Derek Brown, where the ingredients, techniques and lore of cocktails merge together to create a memorable experience. We focus on exceptional service and meticulously crafted cocktails paired with food. But, in the end, our bar is about people— the people who make the ingredients, drinks and, especially, those who drink them.

At Columbia Room we have three distinct spaces—our Tasting Room, Spirits Library and Punch Garden. Seats at the Tasting Room are ticketed and we offer two menus: a three course and five course menu of cocktails paired with snacks. Our Spirits Library and Punch Garden are open seating at tables, though space is limited. At the Spirits Library, we offer one-of-a-kind spirits as well as classic and original cocktails à la carte, along with a selection of snacks. Our Punch Garden is outdoors and serves carefully crafted punches and bottled cocktails.

  • Well made drinks in a bit of a speakeasy type setting indoors, but with a kind of covered roof terrace outdoors. Drinks were well made and service was good.  more »

  • What a unique, exclusive, all-around amazing cocktail bar. Not much on food—was there late and just got some tasty seasoned popcorn. However, atmosphere (has a speakeasy vibe) and cocktails gave this the 5 out of 5. There is typically a wait to get in, but once you’re in, it’s worth it—keeps the place from getting too crowded. Very nice staff also.
  • Great for cocktails but really struggle with pouring a neat whiskey. Took 30 minutes for the whiskey to come out. Restaurant was only 60% full. Would expect better based on other reviews.
