Shh, don’t tell the tourists—Woodley Parkers consider this little lounge beneath New Heights restaurant one of the neighborhood’s best-kept secrets. Try house-made tonics (mint-citrus, tamarind, rhubarb-spice) concocted by bubbly bar manager Nicole Hassoun, who pairs her fizzy creations with both big-name and boutique gins—the soda flavorings are designed to complement each spirit’s botanicals. Insider tip: Hassoun teaches tonic-making classes (see the bar’s Facebook page for details) and will whip up special orders for cocktail parties. Open Monday through Saturday.
