Great Bars 2013: Pacifico Cantina

Bypass the main-floor restaurant at this recent Barracks Row
addition and head for the staircase—it leads to one of the nicest roof
terraces south of Pennsylvania Avenue. The wood paneling, breezy vibe, and
salsa soundtrack give the space a Caribbean feel even though the menu is
technically Mexican. Margaritas come in flavors ranging from passionfruit
to prickly pear. Insider tip: Wednesdays, quesadillas are half price when
you buy a drink. Open daily.
