Where To Ring In The New Year in Washington, D.C.

Your Vale apartment may be beautiful, but there’s no reason to stay cooped up at home on New Year’s Eve watching the ball drop at midnight from your couch – instead, go out on the town and celebrate the big day at one of the many bars in Washington, D.C.!

On Dec. 31, put on your sparkles and 2023 glasses and grab a flute of champagne at one of these happening bars near your Vale apartment. There’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with friends and family, surrounded by music and laughter in our spirited city!

TAKODA, located at 715 Florida Ave NW, Washington, D.C. which is 15 minutes from your Vale apartment, is a striking, industrial-modern hangout with upgraded bar fare and an all-season rooftop beer garden.

The two-story space was built from scratch in a 1920’s-era brick structure, originally a Federal Life Insurance building. Guests on the first floor will find two and four-person booths and seated tables, surrounded by the building’s original brick walls and wood ceiling beams. The roof deck is accented with hanging and potted plants around a horseshoe-shaped bar, and is partially covered with a canopy system. Removable windows allow for year-round eating and drinking with an outdoor feel. 

Barmini by José Andrés, located at 501 9th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is 18 minutes from your Vale apartment, is a swanky craft-cocktail bar with an innovative, technology-driven menu and white-on-white furnishings.

Barmini is José Andrés’ cocktail lab that celebrates classic cocktails alongside distinctly modern creations. Offering a menu of more than 100 libations in addition to experiential flights and inventive snacks, Barmini is DC’s premier cocktail destination. It is a learning center where chefs and bartenders collaborate and where heritage meets innovation.
