So, I first came to Barrel for the Widow and I've kept coming back for everything else. Barrel's agility or is it utility (um...trying out these terms since I tend to use the same words over and over again) or maybe we're just talking about a damn good place to have a drink. I've had lazy Sundays brunches there, a marathon holiday drinking session, a good-bye to DC party (where ironically I realized there was another bar downstairs, Elixir), and it may have been a go-to place for my first date phase (um..cough, cough, Tinder). Regardless of the "event", Barrel always provided a good time. Okay, okay...so the Widow Jane helped too.
