This Washington restaurant and saloon has been a destination—in various locations—for presidents, political insiders, and tourists since 1856. (Teddy Roosevelt reputedly bagged the mounted walrus head.) Four bars—the Old Bar, the Oyster Bar, Grant’s Bar, and the Corner Bar—are set in brass and beveled glass and are always packed for a noisy happy hour. Come for brunch and order the Bloody Maryland—a delicious twist on the classic drink, rimmed with Old Bay and garnished with a shrimp so large that it could almost pass for a meal.
