Great Bars 2011: Redwood

Downtown Bethesda is packed with places to watch a Skins game, but a quieter scene can be hard to find. The roomy lounge inside this Modern American restaurant fits the bill, with its long Carrera-marble bar and scattering of cushy armchairs. You’ll find unusual drinks such as the Tennessee Cider, which mixes Jack Daniel’s with cider and ginger beer. A nice lineup of nibbles includes shareable flatbreads, cheese boards, and freshly fried potato chips with cool and creamy onion dip. Weekdays from 4 to 7, much of it is discounted.
