Whiskey + rooftops + the newly revitalized Wharf makes for an absolute perfect DC evening and now that Whiskey Charlie is now open you can enjoy just that. A few weeks ago Men’s Life DC got to enjoy this perfection at the preview of Whiskey Charlie, a premium rooftop cocktail lounge atop the Canopy Washington DC.
A mix of influencers, foodies and local socialites were invited to the preview event where knowledgeable staff passed out signature Whiskey Charlie cocktails and bites. Think clever finger food ranging from crab cake sliders to standard charcuterie with a twist and house made cheese empanadas and premium cocktails using all your favorite spirits. The food and cocktails were definitely enough but to add to Whiskey Charlie’s charm, were the most amazing views of the Wharf and the Capitol from the 10th floor roofscape. We can just imagine watching a sunset here. It would be beyond phenomenal.
But back to the cocktails because we all love those right? At the preview event, staff passed out 9 of their signature cocktails and we had the pleasure of sampling 5 of them. Those 5:
WC Mule – Whiskey Charlie’s clever take on the Moscow mule but adding strawberry to it
Dark + Stormy– A classic cocktail heavy on the ginger, YUM!
The M2 – This tasty concoction is a blend of pisco, mango, lemon, mint and simple syrup to delight your taste buds.
Mermaid Margarita – A margarita but with grapefruit juice. It’s a must try!
Old Scalawag – This is Whiskey Charlie’s take on an old fashioned and its delicious thanks to the addition of pimento bitters.
Whiskey Charlie opened November 17th and is destined to become one of hottest go to destinations for those Washingtonians in the know. However like most things in DC, words do not do the hotspot’s justice. It’s always best to experience it for yourself and Whiskey Charlie is truly an experience. Treat yourself and head over to the Wharf next weekend and visit Whiskey Charlie. Tell them Men’s Life DC sent you and be sure to tell us what your favorite beverage is.
Whiskey Charlie is located at 975 7th St SW, Washington, DC 20024.
