Great Bars 2013: The Lobby Lounge

With a lodgey look that would fit in at any ski resort, the
lounge in the Ritz is where Georgetown grownups go to escape the M Street

hamburger sliders, flatbreads, or (on request) generous cheese plates. In
the evening, it’s the perfect place to sip a snifter of brandy in front of
a wood-burning fireplace. Insider tip: The staff prepares and serves
complimentary s’mores in front of the fire every evening at 6:30. Open
