Booze To Go and Delivery in DC – Highlighted Spots

Bluejacket delivered

Last Updated: June 10, 2020 (out of date)

On Tuesday, March 17th, a new law temporarily allowing bars and restaurants to sell beer, wine, and hard liquor (including cocktails) to go and for delivery (accompanied by sale of prepared food-i.e. not pre-packaged snacks) became effective, and over 500+ bars have sought permission to do so. It was already legal for breweries, distilleries, liquor stores, and brewpubs to do so (no food purchase required). Because there are so many, I’m not able to be comprehensive, but wanted to highlight some spots that have fancy cocktails you may find hard to make yourself, beer that’s not available in liquor store, and spots that are offering very cheap deals. Please review the DC Virtual Tip Jar , read this story on ways to support, buy a gift card (see list here)

  1. Dupont Circle has a ton of other places! Across the Pond, Northside Tavern, and Thai Chef (has a great bar, offering bottled beer/wine/create your own 6 pack for takeout & delivery!) You can check out open Dupont bars/restaurants here:
