Happy Monday: M Bar (DC)

[ 0 ] November 30, 2009 |

“Oh the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we’ve no place to go,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

Well the weather in the District is not frightening just yet, but it is cold enough to have an excuse to visit a happy hour that is focused on heating things up. Today’s Happy Monday comes from the M Bar (*located in the Renaissance M Street Hotel) which hosts a happy hour everyday. Everyday, we repeat. This includes Sundays (*Now why didn’t we know about this sooner?!?). Monday-Friday offers up $4.50 well cocktails in addition to daily specials such as Myers Mojito Mondays with $4.00 mojitos and Celebrate Students Wednesdays which offers students who show college ID’s (*You must be 21 and over, of course…) $3.50 rails and $2.50 domestic beers.

Now for the part you are probably really curious to hear about…a Sunday happy hour? Renaissance “M” VP happy hour is all day on Sunday featuring a selection of male-named “MVPs”, such as Jack Daniels or Jose Cuervo for $4.00 all day long. Of course, you can catch the football games here for all the Redskins fans (*or Cowboys fans, hehehe:-)who are glued to the screen on Sundays.

We did not forget about the food (*The most important part). Sauteed Shrimp over Creamy Cheddar Cheese Grits, Fresh Maryland Crab Cakes and Miso Marinated Sea Bass are some of the yummy selections you can choose from the menu. Chef John Therres has also included some traditional and premium sliders including Bacon and Cheddar Burgers and Lobster Burgers with Sliced Avocado (*Yum.).

Warmed up yet?? We might need to make the Sandy Smirnoff Party on Friday, from the looks of things the end of this week may call for a few Smirnoff-infused cocktails…and @ $4.00 a pop, this could be a no-brainer.
