Leopold's Absinthe @ Church & State

Now there are drinks and then there are real drinks.  Church & State is where they house the real drinks.  Every drink was bred in the United States, which is where the phrase was first coined by President Thomas Jefferson.  The bar has a long list of cocktails that can either make you more knowledgeable in choosing your next Martini or leave you wondering how you managed to drink so much absinthe in one sitting.  The place spills controversial topics with absinthe as a menu item, house specialities named after the Seven Deadly Sins and a Bill of Rights of their House Specialties.  Fitting into the outcast theme that is common on the H Street Corridor, Church & State invites patrons in for a night to discuss exactly what is on your mind.  No inhibitions in that space.
