Post-Shopping Drinks in the Nation's Capital

Aug 28, 2012 —  In a city that’s as opinionated as Washington, DC, every choice you make can often be construed as left- or right-leaning in its origination. But when it comes to shopping in the nation's capital, the only important factors are based on area, price, and style – or what we might label in political terms as independent decision making.

Shopping areas abound in DC from the high-end fantasies in Chevy Chase, oozing with Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, and Bulgari, to the nitty gritty corners around Capitol Hill with outdoor shopping expanses like Eastern Market. But if you’re looking for great shopping that’s mixed in, or finished off with even greater drinking spots, then you don’t need to look any further than Dupont Circle, Downtown DC, or Georgetown.

Dupont Circle is packed with galleries and eclectic finds, often hand-crafted, in addition to one-of-a-kind boutiques. It’s also filled with an incredible amount of bars and restaurants for all tastes, styles, and budgets.

Downtown, meanwhile, is where more well-known stores like Zara and Urban Outfitters compete with smaller shops like Peruvian Connections and Cowgirl Creamery (which manages to churn out some of the most mind-blowing cheeses in the region).

To top it all off, there’s Georgetown, specifically M Street, which continues to be one of the hottest shopping streets in DC, if not the country, with alternating boutiques, bars, and restaurants packed end to end. After getting your fix of window displays and sweets from Georgetown Cupcake, sidle up to one of the sidewalk facing sipping spots and engage in some politics free discussions around how amazing your stunning new Giuseppe Zanotti Cap Toe Pumps are going to look with that Thakoon Seamed A-Line Dress.

Georgetown waterfront is a packed scene during summer happy hours. Can be a madhouse at times but generally a ton of fun. Check out sequioa's. Huge outdoor patio on the Potomac river.
