In the early 20th century (the era known as Prehibition), bars were forbidden to let their liquors stay out past curfew, for fear that they would be corrupted by cocaine-infused colas. Enjoy drinks in an alcohol-safe environment with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale drinks, coffee, and bar fare at the Baltic Room in Capitol Hill. This Groupon is not valid for the cover charge.
The Baltic Room's classy, film-noir vibe and hip-shakeable tunes make it a beautifully lit backdrop for enjoying a wide array of sumptuous sippables and delectable edibles. The multifaceted lounge cracks itself open at 7:00 a.m. on weekdays and 8:30 a.m. on weekends to refresh night-shift rodeo clowns with locally roasted Caffe Vita coffee ($1.25–$3.50) and light breakfast eats, such as fresh pastries ($1.50–$4) and breakfast sandwiches ($3.50). Daytime cocktails, such as the elusive Bloody Mary ($7), are available to mid-morning tipplers who state their orders three times while staring into a darkened mirror.
By evening, the Baltic Room sheds its day-friendly World Cup coverage and morning fare, undergoing a Teen Wolf–like transformation into a debonair dance lounge (check the calendar to see what's playing each night). Valentinos and vamps can swoon into the decadent mohair booths after a few of the Baltic Room's specialty cocktails—such as a classic Jack and Ginger or Cucumber Collins—before reviving themselves with an order from the rotating bar menu, such as spinach-artichoke dip ($6) or lasagna ($6). Sugar-starved sippers can fuel up for the dance floor with a hot tamale ($7), or the formidable pixie stick (Three Olives grape and cherry vodkas, sweet-and-sour mix, and cranberry juice; $7), a fiendishly nostalgic concoction capable of inducing sleepover-style mischief such as cow tipping and bas-relief sculpting. Toss on a pair of spotless spats and head to the Baltic Room for a chance to wine and dine the mild-mannered gun moll next door with today's Groupon.
