The highly anticipated November 2010 opening of Barcode Restaurant, Bar and Lounge brought with it a slightly new concept to DC nightlife.
While many DC restaurants, lounges and bars focus on one specific niche, Barcöde has attempted to penetrate three.
Catering to 21+ young professionals, the DC lounge has an extensive selection of bottled and draft beers, wines and specialty cocktails.
The kitchen, open ’til midnight, features reasonably priced American classics with a twist. Customer favorites include the Avocado Dip; the wide selection of brick oven, thin crust pizzas; and the Tiramisu.
The popular happy hour features half-off drink specials and carries into the night with DJs and sporting events and fights. The DC bar features ten 42″ HDTVs and two 70″ HD projectors.
Barcöde’s Tuesday happy-hour was voted Best in DC by the Washington Post!
Barcode’s 1 Year Anniversary event happens on Saturday November 5th and features complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 10PM-11PM.
The party kicks-off with DJ Saam and DJ Kam on the decks! A Champagne toast will be held at midnight.
To your left, Bar Manager and Beverage Mixologist Ari Wilder explains the ‘how-to’ for creating the Barcode specialty cocktail known as the Orchard Storm.
I’m very proud of what Barcode has become over the last year. I’ve witnessed the food, staff and clientele evolve. The place has a comfortable feel, and the customers respond to it. We now have many regulars that love the food and atmosphere. Sports have become a big attraction by popular demand. For 2012, we’re focusing on consistency and improved service.
