Passport solo

The DC Passport is your drinking guide to help you discover new favorite bars and restaurants throughout the District. Imagine stepping into a new bar as you and your guest take a seat. Greet the bartender and flash your drink passport. Once your drinks are ready your bartender will stamp your page.

This summer 50 bars and restaurants will be featured. The program runs Friday of Memorial Day weekend, May 27th through Monday, September 5th of Labor Day weekend. Sales begin May 17th with options to either purchase on The Passport Program website or in person starting May 25th at Politics and Prose (5th  Street) or Salt and Sundry.

For only $20 your little pocket-sized black book will allow you to purchase two drinks for the price of one. The options will include everything from signature cocktails to craft beer and local wine. Whether you are in the mood for a dive bar or want to romance your date at a swanky new restaurant the passport has you covered.

The Passport Program began in Denver, CO four years ago and now this is DC’s second year. The program is also established in the following cities: Boulder, Brooklyn, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Nashville, Oakland, San Diego, and Seattle.
