Lounge 201, selected as an editor's pick by the Washington Post, touts a lineup of eclectic cocktails alongside simple menus strewn with a variety of savory meats and grilled seafood. Cocktail conjurers assemble innovative concoctions using only brand-name spirits, adorning highballs with Woodford Reserve, daiquiri glasses with Bacardi, and 1920's gin safes with Tanqueray. The L201 vodka martini swathes itself in Tito's vodka with a splash of vermouth before donning blue-cheese-stuffed olives to impress giggling bands of wineglasses ($10), while the blood-orange margarita merges Sauza silver and triple sec with a nectarous blood-orange purée ($10). Draft, bottle, and specialty beers hail from artisan breweries around the globe, including Chimay White ($9) from Belgium, and a range of domestic and international wines by the glass sate bouquet cravings ($8–$12). Once glasses are full, lull hunger to sleep by plucking delicious harmonies on the calamari strings marinated in buttermilk and flanked by marinara sauce and basil-lime aioli ($8), or nosh on mini Maryland lump-crab cakes frosted with leek sauce ($8).

Lounge 201 is open to the public Tuesday–Friday. Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays are reserved for private events.

The 201 Bar

When the owners of Lounge 201 decided to revamp their business, they wanted to move toward something that looked more like a “modern tavern.” Their efforts yielded The 201 Bar, which has more than 50 bottles of craft beer, 30 bottles of small batch wine, and bartenders who mix cocktails by hand. The drinks complement a mix of seafood dishes and delightfully referential sandwiches such as the Elvis’ Peanut Butter Sandwich with bananas and bacon. The spirit of the old business wasn’t abandoned altogether, however. The best parts are still in tact, such as the private rooms available for all manner of party, gathering, or celebration.
