St Regis Bar

My new favorite place to hang out in DC is the bar at the newly renovated St. Regis hotel! Recently renovated by Sills Huniford, the space is truly amazing. The historic hotel has been beautifully renovated but updated with modern furnishings and light fixtures that are easily reversable so no fears of the space 'dating'.They have some creative cocktails and probably the best sangria I've ever had (the fruit is strained out so you don't get those nasty bits in your teeth!)But it's the atmosphere that truly gets me, especially at night. Ebony paneling, an antique ceiling and tall windows.We had our local dc design bloggers happy hour here a few weeks ago and now I'm hooked! If you're ever in dc check out the hotel!

Looks like a swell spot to enter and to exit.

Haven't Messrs Sills & Huniford gone their separate ways?

What a coincidence... I just posted a blog on a historical hotel renovation in Santa Fe.

I love the St.Regis bar... the atmosphere is such that you could spend hours there as a regular.
