The Royal

The Royal

Appears in 1 Collection

The Royal immediately became a neighborhood staple when it opened in the summer of 2015. Located in LeDroit Park, it’s between the now-bustling Shaw neighborhood and emerging Bloomingdale. It opens early seven days a week for breakfast and stays open until at least midnight each night as well. Expect a focused wine list, a locally focused beer selection and standout cocktails, including reinterpretations of classics and house specialties. There’s also flavorful, fun Latin-inspired fare from a wood-burning grill. Themed Royal Knights events are held one Monday per month, with guest bartenders, a lineup of special cocktails and large crowds of revelers.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: House-made vermouth on tap. Or put that vermouth to use in the Vermouth Cocktail, also with Plymouth gin, maraschino liqueur and orange bitters.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: The Royal doesn’t take reservations, and you’ll need to place your food order up at the bar if you nabbed a table.
