Party Like a Rockstar
Birch and Barley Restaurant Washington DC
The Hostess Handbook suggests you book Birch & Barley’s fantastic back dining room that accommodates up to 18. From there, you can watch all the action in the kitchen while enjoying some seriously good food, interesting cocktails and one of the most substantial beer lists in the city.
The owners of Birch & Barley take their 550 rotating cask and bottled beer selections seriously. Like wines at some other high end restaurants, the brews here are hand selected to compliment the chef’s delicious eats like arctic char tartare or beet risotto with whipped goat cheese (it comes out pink!). Need a little help picking out the perfect beverage? Don’t hesitate to ask for Greg Engert, Birch & Barley’s in house beer director.
After enjoying a tasty meal, head upstairs to check out Birch & Barley’s more raucous sister bar, Churchkey. This super popular spot is constantly packed with twenty-somethings looking to get their drink on and forget their winter blues.
