A touch of European glitz a block from the White House, this hotel bar is French to the core—often filled with French diplomats and dignitaries. Of course, they benefit from the exchange rate, so the pricey cocktails ($13 to $14) don’t pack the same punch to the wallet. Wine and beer, though, are reasonable and, if you enjoy them on the civilized patio on a spring evening, you’ll be hard pressed not to imagine yourself in Paris.
