Crimson Whiskey Bar opens at Pod DC hotel

Crimson Whiskey Bar is one of three F&B outlets at the Pod DC.

The Pod Hotels announced the opening of Washington, D.C.'s, newest underground whiskey bar, Crimson Whiskey Bar. The bar is located at Pod DC, a 245-room micro-hotel located in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood that opened its doors in May.

Similar to Pod’s New York properties, the food-and-beverage venues at Pod DC draw visitors and locals alike. The newly opened Crimson Whiskey Bar is a public house that celebrates whiskey’s rich history in the American South. Guests can perch on one of the leather couches while enjoying authentic moonshine or the vast selection of whiskies in addition to other spirits.

Crimson Diner on the hotel’s ground level is a warm and inviting space for guests to enjoy creative southern fare from morning until late night. To round out Pod DC’s trio of venues is Crimson View—the hotel’s rooftop featuring indoor and outdoor spaces that boast stunning views of the D.C. skyline.
