Today’s Happy Hour post isn’t about a cocktail; it’s about a bar. The Town & Country Lounge, at the Mayflower Hotel, is the epitome of the Washington, D.C. power bar. The history is storied, the drinks are strong and the bartenders know all, but say nothing.
Sadly, on January 15, Town & Country will close its doors and my favorite local bartender, Sam, will be moving on. To say bon voyage to the capital’s best strongest martini, there is only one dress that I want to wear.
Pour me another, Sam.
