The Passenger is already a great place to get a drink in Washington, DC.
Great location in my old hood, quality spirits made into tasty cocktails and terrific, unique bar food made by brothers Derek and Tom Brown, plus the bar’s excellent staff.
But The Passenger’s staff has taken the inventiveness they apply to creating cocktails a step further.
We’ve always enjoyed playing around with pop-culture and the zeitgeist, and bringing that into our bar. We put what we think is funny on our chalk boards and hope everyone else agrees with us. We try to make cocktails that are a fun representation of whatever pop-culture phenomenon we’re referencing, and we try to make them delicious too.
The Passenger succeeds in that effort. I’m overdue for a visit.
