More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I drink right now? While the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essential restaurants across the city and the Eater Heat Map highlights where the foodie crowds are flocking to at the moment, neither of these properly cover the bars and restaurants where cocktail aficionados and beer nerds are getting their drink on right now.
And so the time has come to update the Drinks Heat Map. Rather than feature the perennial favorites—we will assume you already know how to get to the Passenger and Estadio—this guide focuses on operations that are newer or have recently made significant revamps.
Have any suggestions? Any vital omissions? Leave 'em in the comments.
This time around, the Heat Map said goodbye to World of Beer, the closed-for-the-season New York Ave. Beach Bar, Bar Pilar, Black Jack and Brixton to make way for these newer choices: Hogo, the revamped Room 11, Mari Vanna, Satellite Room and speakeasy Harold Black.
