A really unexpected joy. We chose this on the advice of reviewers on TripAdvisor. On the suggestion of others we booked a table in advance. A bit odd for a cocktail bar. The bar is inside an unmarked door without a shopfront. Make sure you...More

The Gibson gives you the feel of being in the prohibition era, it's not easy to find even knowing the address. It does look a bit shady from the outside but I guess that's all part of the vibe. Once there you give a knock...More

A big thing to note if you're considering going to The Gibson is that they do not serve food (except for pork rinds, chips, and nuts) - cocktails only. Definitely a place for pre- or post-meal, but don't plan on ordering dinner. The speakeasy concept...More

I think when a place has special cocktails it's best to ask questions just so you know what you're getting yourself into. This place is absolutely beautiful inside. The outside is an unmarked door, but the horde of people outside is the indicator that you've...More

Late in December I dress up for the annual birthday rendezvous with my culinary guide to the DC food scene. The celebration always commences with cocktails at The Gibson – a quiet, mysterious, refined tribute to the art of the cocktail
