Friday Night Raw

Green Cocktails in a Downtown Row House

None 3 Photos The Bar at Elizabeth’s Gone Raw
It’s not easy being green. True enough. Much less green, vegan and raw.

But one thing certainly makes it all easier: a full complement of organic beers and liquors. (We hear that was Kermit’s secret, too.)

Checking that box: The Bar at Elizabeth’s Gone Raw, opening tonight as the spirits-centric first-floor cousin to a temple of raw, vegan fare upstairs.

This is definitely not the place you’ll find bourbon washed in bacon fat. What you will find: a perfectly unexpected spot to escort your date for a pre- and/or post-dinner cocktail. But only on Fridays. Because that’s the only night they’re open (in about another month, they’ll add a Thursday happy hour).

You’ll enter this row house and sit down at the backlit, green-onyx bar. Surrounded by chandeliers, candelabras and antique mirrors, you can pick from half a dozen organic beers (Samuel Smith’s Organically Produced Lager, Orval Trappist Ale), seven organic wines and rare, mostly American organic spirits, which they’ll mix into a rotating slate of drinks like the L Street Cockatiel (lime, agave, fresh ginger, tequila).

And while you’re there, they may just pique your interest in some vegan bar snacks.

No, we don’t mean organic Beer Nuts.
