Date Nights DC Itinerary: Lipstick and Firecrackers

  • PRINT

DO
Catch an offbeat play at Studio Theatre. This February, the play is “Tribes,” the story of a deaf man forging his identity in the hearing world, written by emerging British playwright Nina Raine.

STAY
Walk down 14th Street NW and make yourselves at home at the Donovan House Hotel. Furnished in a mid-century-meets-next century vibe, rooms straddle the line between uber-chic and ultra-cozy. Dressed up in cordovan leather and violet cotton, the king suites are anything but a drag.

EAT
Slip into Zentan, a candlelit restau-bar on the ground floor of the hotel. Culinary creations include imaginative standouts such as the miazake beef cooked at the table on a hot Japanese river rock. The sizzle is as good as the steak.

DO
Steal away to the intimate Bar Rouge for a nightcap. Inventive cocktails flirt with the lipstick red walls for one’s attentions. Bar Rouge is one of the few Washington, DC bars to feature wine on tap.
