Hank's Cocktail Bar
Nestled in the heart of Washington, DC’s vibrant Petworth neighborhood, Hank’s Cocktail Bar, by award winning local restaurateur Jamie Leeds, embraces the area’s eclectic “cool” factor with a palpable sense of community. Not to be fooled by its approachable appeal, the seductively moody watering hole is quietly revolutionizing the city’s cocktail scene with innovative, avant-garde concoctions by head bartender / mixology mastermind Jessica Weinstein. Skilled in the art of hospitality, Jessica brings the flavors of the kitchen to the bar. Her cocktails showcase a distinctly unique culinary direction with ingredients ranging from charred eggplant to garlic-infused Armagnac and yogurt based tipples like her “Béarnaise” with Absolut Elyx, Tarragon, Wildflower Honey, Greek Yogurt and Bitters presented in an iconic honey bear squeeze bottle. With a knack for creating bespoke cocktails for guests based on their taste preferences, she is quick to find your true “spirit cocktail.” If it’s a smash hit, it might just earn a coveted spot on the menu. From cocktails and wines to shareable punches and craft beers, the menu encourages guests to stop and stay awhile. Enhancing the whole experience, Hank’s Cocktail Bar goes beyond the glass with a menu of chef-driven bar treats offered every day from spicy-glazed Roasted Broccoli to BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches or the Smokehouse Burger, along with weekend brunch favorites like Bacon, Egg & Cheese Waffle Sliders and Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa topped Breakfast Tacos.
