There is certainly no shortage of holiday pop-up bars around D.C. this time of year, but we just found one that might be our new favorite! At the famous D.C. hotel, the Westin D.C., there is currently a hidden holiday-themed speakeasy bar that has been hidden away from the public and is protected by a secret password that changes every week!
Everything you need to know about the Westin Holiday Speakeasy
The perfect spot for craft cocktails inspired by the holiday season in a setting that makes it feel like you stepped right into a hallmark movie, Westin’s Holiday Speakeasy is a pretty special place. Open only from Thursday to Saturday nights from 6 pm to 11 pm from December 1st until January 6th, and, as we mentioned, the speakeasy bar only allows people who know their secret password at the door, which changes every week! The passwords are only announced on the Westin’s Instagram page as a story post once a week, so you’ll have to pay close attention to make sure you don’t miss it!
This weekend (12/14 – 12/16) the secret password that you need to say at the door to get into the speakeasy is the word “…classified”.
The atmosphere is exceedingly festive, so ugly Christmas sweaters are appreciated, if not, encouraged! Plus, they also have a large selection of board games available to play, so you and your friends can enjoy a fun game together while you enjoy your drinks.
We look at this place as the perfect place to kick off your night out on the weekend, grabbing a cocktail or two and taking a few perfect pictures to capture the incredible holiday energy that this speakeasy emanates! The space is extremely cozy and has plenty of space to comfortably accommodate larger groups, so make sure you invite friends if you are planning to visit it this weekend.
