Watergate – the word is synonymous with my teenage years in the seventies so had to visit when in DC recently. Conveniently located half way between Hotel Hive where The Grey Traveller holed up for five nights and the lovely picturesque Georgetown.
Tall stools at the Kingbird bar and a list of cocktails long enough to keep a cocktail queen entertained for weeks, I chose the gin based Scandal; it had to be done.
Mixed by a waiter as slick as the shiny decor, I could’t wait to indulge. The Scandal did not disappoint and this old bird was certainly ready to cause a stir. When I next fly into DC I will certainly perch at this bar again.
