There are a lot of new bars opening throughout Washington, D.C. Now that the COVID-19 pandemic has ended, the nightlife in the Nation’s Capital is still looking to rebuild itself back to its glory days. Death & Co. opened on July 21 and was one of the most anticipated openings this season.

If you recognize the name, yes this is the newest edition to the Death & Co family that features venues in New York City, Denver, and Los Angeles. Locals to Washington D.C. will recognize this establishment formerly known as Columbia Room, but all that history wasn’t pushed to the wayside.

This new location can be seen as a stopping or starting point for those looking to embrace D. C’s nightlife. The hours are 5 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Wednesday, and 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday through Sunday. This fits in well for those looking for a new happy hour spot to try before heading out to a party, or for someone looking for a spot to enjoy high-quality drinks before heading home for the evening.

As with the other Death & Co throughout the country, this venue in D.C. has its own unique drink menu with several options that some might consider “pricey,” but certainly not for those looking for a cheap drink. The 19-page menu features a large variety of drinks split into categories such as Light & Playful, Bright & Confident, Elegant & Timeless, Boozy & Honest, and Rich & Comforting. This unique classification of cocktails makes looking through the menu to pick the perfect drink a big part of the adventure.

Death & Co doesn’t offer a food menu, so if you’re heading to this location with food on the mind you will want to grab a bite somewhere else first. Zero-proof, beers, and canned cocktails are also available.

Washington D.C.’s nightlife continues to expand with new venues showing up frequently. Some will struggle to capture the uniqueness of the city, but those like Death & Co fit well in the city. With a model of other major locations to follow, this should be an interesting addition to the entertainment scene in D.C.
