Summer solstice came and went, and now we’re deep in the throws of another DC summer. What better way to quell the heat than enjoying some cold cocktails on a trendy rooftop? Enter El Techo, a rooftop gem of a bar with an island-meets-treehouse vibe. The skilled bartenders craft mouthwateringly yummy twists on the classic margarita, leaving you raring to make your way through the entire list.
My personal favorite? The Spicy Mezcal Margarita. Think tropical, fruity margarita with a pleasant kick, infused with mezcal smokiness.
Not a margarita fan? Try the Oaxacan Mule, a dangerously easy to sip, mezcal-based spin on a favorite classic, or keep it simple and enjoy the bar’s playful, fun ambience over a glass of wine or a beer. The vibrant venue alone is enough to keep you coming back all summer, day or night. Oh, and don’t miss the nachos…INCREDIBLE, and you get a heaping pile and a generous serving of your protein of choice. Delish!
