As of today, Capitol Hill denizens have an upscale alternative to the usual dive bars with the arrival of Hank’s Oyster Bar (633 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) and its companion drink haven, Eddy Bar.
With glistening bar, soda fountains and antique bottles decorating the shelves, the 60-seat space evokes a modern update to a 20th-century drugstore. At the end of the bar, an elevated oyster-shucking station allows diners to observe the preparation of the briny bivalves.
Bad jokes were shared and middling food endured Wednesday night during the Women’s Policy Inc. Congressional Gala, a nonpartisan celebration of prominent female lawmakers past and present.
The event highlighted the work of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.
