WASHINGTON, DC. - The Columbia Room has gathered consistent national praise since reopening in Shaw last year, including “best” nods from Esquire and Bon Appetit. Drink Company partners Derek Brown, Angie Fetherston, and JP Fetherston collected the biggest accolade yet over the weekend at annual bartender gathering Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, where the team took home the trophy for “Best American Cocktail Bar.”

The Columbia Room was up against three cocktail powerhouses in the finals: Trick Dog in San Francisco, Attaboy in New York, and Anvil Bar and Refuge, both in Houston.

“They deserve it as much as we do,” says Brown in Facebook post. “They’re incredible bars. But I also know how hard our staff has worked, how creative and unique a bar they’ve made, and all the love and passion that goes into every day.”
