Date Nights DC Itinerary: Lipstick and Firecrackers

  • PRINT

DO
Catch Choir Boy at Studio Theatre, which tells the story of Pharus, a talented student in a legendary school choir who deals with masculinity, tradition, coming of age and speaking truth.

STAY
Walk down 14th Street NW and make yourselves at home at the Donovan House Hotel, a Kimpton boutique 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 restaurant/bar on the ground floor of the hotel. Culinary creations include imaginative standouts such as the miyazaki 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.
