There's always something special on the seasonally changing cocktail menu at Le Bar at Café du Parc, the French bistro at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Willard InterContinental hotel in Washington, D.C.
The bar menu at Café du Parc features classic cocktails like mint juleps and manhattans, but it also includes French favorites such as the Kir and Kir Royale. Other libations with Gallic inspiration include the Lillet-ita — a lighter take on the margarita with the French vermouth Lillet and Grand Marnier — and the French 75, a gin and Champagne cocktail that became popular in France during the First World War. The menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant also offers a rotation of mocktails. On our visit, these included ginger limeade, blueberry lemonade made with fresh blueberry puree, and the Secret Rouge, a blend of apple, pear and passion fruit juices with grenadine.
Yes, “Le Bar” is on the main level of Café du Parc.
