Sure, the #Logi16 users conference will offer a jam-packed agenda, with tips and tricks directly from Logi users and experts.
Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, or want sit down at one of the world’s best restaurants, here’s a few of our favorite spots:
Ben’s Chili Bowl is a landmark in D.C., serving up their famous half smokes with chili. Frequented by presidents and celebrities (President Obama has a reserved booth), be sure to order a milkshake with your dog.
Another option for a quick bite is Bubs and Pops – a family owned sub and hoagie shop near Dupont Circle. We’re fans of the Italian Hoagie and Braised Beef Brisket sandwich.
If you’re looking for upscale fare, Jose Andres has a number of tapas restaurants around town, including Jaleo (Spanish) and Zaytinya (Mediterranean). For Top Chef fans, Mike Isabella also has a few hot spots around the city, including Graffiato (Italian) and Kapnos (Greek) – both are delicious options.
For something extra special, get yourself a reservation at Rasika. Offering modern Indian cuisine, Rasika is a perennial top restaurant in the city. Pro tip: make sure you get the Palak Chaat.
Want to grab a quick beer with some new friends, or rub elbows with politicians? There are a number of great bars and lounges near the Ronald Reagan Building.
City Tap House is a good option if you want to try some craft brews from around the country (over 40 brew lines to be exact). Looking for more, swing by Church Key, which boasts 50 beers on draft
and 500 bottles of beer.
If cocktails are more your style, check out POV at the W Hotel – its rooftop lounge has amazing views of the White House. You could also spring for a cocktail at Barmini, a cocktail lab that offers a menu of than 100 different drinks.
Sights and Sounds
Of course, DC isn’t only about eating and drinking! Whether you’re a history buff or an art aficionado, here a few things you might want to add to your itinerary:
- Find the giant LL Cool J portrait at the Portrait Gallery (yes, it exists and it’s 8ft tall)
- Tour the Library of Congress (home to more than 6 million books)
- Spend time at a few memorials – we like the Martin Luther King and Jefferson memorials, as well as a few lesser known landmarks, including Albert Einstein Memorial, the National Capitol Columns and the Bridge Tender’s House. Better yet – hop on a Segway Tour and see them all!
- DC is famous for its Smithsonian Museums, including the Natural History Museum, Air & Space Museum, Hirshhorn Art Museum, and the newly-opened African American History Museum. But don’t forget to visit the Newseum and National Building Museum as well – they’re local favorites.
- For a different take on an art gallery, check out Dupont Underground. This once-abandoned trolley station beneath Dupont Circle has been revitalized, and hosts exhibits as unique as the setting.
- Explore the Money Factory (also known as the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing). Book a tour to see first-hand how money is made (unfortunately you can’t take any home with you).
