92 of 173:
Dan’s Cafe

An Adams Morgan bar unlike any other, the yellowed and slightly dingy charm of Dan’s Café is a throwback to a time when the neighborhood was less packed with politicking bros. Be forewarned: Customers after a mixed drink are served a liquor and mixer of choice—plus a bucket of ice—and told to do it themselves.

In an era when tongue-in-cheek cocktails are all the rage, Dan’s decades-old “liquor in squirt bottles” concept might possibly be the irony-free granddaddy of them all.
