Le Bar

Established in 1847

Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located on the lobby level of the historic Willard InterContinental, the iconic Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington, D.C.’s political and social elite since Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of “Rum Row” and the “E Street Corridor” — plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers.


MONDAY – SATURDAY 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
SUNDAY 12:00 p.m. – Midnight

Bar menu is available daily until 11:00 p.m.
