You’ve been racking your brain to come up with the perfect get-together spot for post-work tippling/dinner with friends/that next date.
Look no further than recently opened, all-purpose hangout Smith Commons Dining Room & Public House. Outfitted with fireplaces, exposed brick, and giant windows, the trilevel bistro — and former warehouse space — is the Atlas Arts District’s newest go-to.
Play catch-up with old friends over craft beers (De Dolle Dulle Teve and Duvel Moortgat) and bites (crab cake sliders, fish-and-chips) at one of three bars. Night out with your new beau? Tuck into a cozy, hearth-side sofa while debating the dining room’s tavern-style dishes (mussel bouillon, lamb chops with a heaping side of mashed potatoes). Even overworked colleagues will praise your $5 happy hour sips and snacks suggestion.
Consider it your new common ground.
Smith Commons Dining Room & Public House, 1245 H Street Northeast, between 12th and 13th Streets (202-396-0038 or smithcommonsdc.com).
