The Willard hotel has a claim on history as few other local establishments do: It’s literally where lobbying started during the Grant administration—and more recently where Jon Stewart’s team stayed during the comic’s rally on the Mall. So it’s little surprise that the Round Robin’s circular bar, just off the lobby, is a classic too, offering the area’s best mint julep.
