Morris American Bar

The soft, feminine touches of Morris American Bar — baby-blue walls offset with floral wallpaper, flowering plants on tables, brightly patterned cushions — help it stand out from the other dimly lit cocktail bars around town. Thankfully, this Mount Vernon Triangle spot is more than just a looker: Bartender and beverage director David Strauss served in a similar role at Barmini, and the crack staff builds excellent beverages, such as the current Cowboy Bebop, where the herbal-honey sweetness of Drambuie is an excellent bridge between cognac and orange curacao flavors. Some of the drinks, like the Como la Flor — mezcal, crème de violette and citrus combined in a soft purple vision — are as attractive as their surroundings. 1020 Seventh St. NW.
