This was an especially special Mystery Monday. HQ went here on a mystery date (shocking!) and it was the most perfect thing to do in DC for a special occasion. Where was it?
Jose Andreas strikes again. AND WE GOT TO MEET HIM! He just showed up. Although, I don’t think that’s the norm…we just got lucky. Anyway, Barmini is located in downtown DC behind an unassuming door. As soon as you walk in, you’re greeted with a warm welcome and a cold cocktail. The event that we went to was a special edition cocktail class in honor of Mardi Gras. We made three drinks. Each NoLa-inspired cocktail was taught to the entire group first by a token bartender. Afterwards, we broke into our groups and were assigned our own bartender to coach us through the process. We hit the jackpot with our bartender, Arpan. We made a Hurricane, a Sazerac, and a Buck. WOW they were just as strong as they were delicious. Hands down one of the best date nights in DC we’ve been on.
