Denson Liquor Bar, from DC-native Ari Gejdenson’s Mindful Restaurant Group, casts a warm glow for being underground. Modeled after a 1920’s hotel, this proper liquor bar provides a welcome reprieve from the modern world above. <br /><br />From the bar, expect an emphasis on classic cocktails and a focused spirits list that includes favorites and explorations alike. The kitchen offers dishes ranging from light snacks to entrees so there’s an option for whatever your evening brings.<br /><br />We do take a limited number of reservations but the remaining booths and barstools are always available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like a reservation for a party of 12 or more, email us at info@densondc.com or give us a call at (240)499-5018.<br />

"A friend had heard good things so we tried Denson Liquor Bar. It was difficult to find the unmarked location down steps by the Verizon Center, but that added to the ambiance. The decor was dark with low lights and a speakeasy-type feel. It was fun and energetic. We were seated promptly and given the menu. The menus were very small but had tasty options and it smelled like good food there! I got the Cuban sandwich, tried a meatball and saw a nicely put together robust salad. All were nicely displayed and tasty! We wanted wine and the server offered to leave us alone with the wine list when we had questions. We probably should have had liquor. Also, one item on our check did not match the menu price. When we told the waiter, he said thank you for letting us know, without an offer to correct it. We decided to just pay the check as it was and left, agreeing that we would return and try some of the mixed drinks for which this place is named."
