Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching, which is always an excuse to tear up the town by drinking tequila. While D.C. is no stranger to bars promoting tequila shots, generic margaritas, and the like, it's also home to some serious tequila destinations as well.
This map highlights several of those places. It also focuses on bars that specialize in related agave-based spirits, and just throws in a few atmospheric picks for tequila-sipping in Washington. Fun facts: Arlington is a particularly strong neighborhood for tequila aficionados, with Fuego Cocina, Don Tito, and the new Pepita all sporting impressive selections of the spirit. Still think tequila is made for shooters? Keep Chupacabra in mind, a bar that offers them for $5 on Tuesdays — including a free taco.
