Sleep. Stroll. Sip. : Georgetown

Sleep

 I felt like I had walked right out of a historic novel while staying at The Jefferson Hotel. From its close proximity to many quintessential D.C. sites to the impeccable decor I was constantly impressed. I learned the vibe of the hotel was inspired by Jefferson’s love for Parisian influences. Who knew T.J. and I had such a similar design aesthetic?!

 Before you check out, you must have brunch at The Greenhouse. I stumbled upon this beautiful restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed my delicious stack of lemon ricotta pancakes.

Stroll 

 Although I didn’t have too much time to explore, I definitely took advantage of the Georgetown area. I met up with Olivia at Tackle Box for a quick seafood bite. Who doesn’t enjoy snacking on fish + chips at an indoor picnic table!? This restaurant took the idea of casual dining to a whole new level.

 We browsed the basics, J. Crew, Cusp, and Blue Mercury, and window shopped at local boutiques, Sassanova and Hu’s Shoes (my wallet was thrilled the high end shops closed early).

Sip 

 Enjoy a Garden of Eden cocktail at the swanky Quill lounge at The Jefferson Hotel, they blend a mixture of classic drinks as well as contemporary ones. It was a great spot to meet my friend, Mike, for a nightcap and quick catch up session.

 Although you’d naturally think to visit Georgetown Cupcakes, I must say I was really pleased with the dessert selection at the neighborhood coffee shop, Baked & Wired. When you walk in you become immediately intoxicated by the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and have your pick of any type of cupcake imaginable.

I’m looking forward to getting more acquainted with the D.C. + Georgetown area during my next visit, making a reservation at Birch & Barley is definitely at the top of my to-do list.

Also, I’d love to hear what cities you’d like to see on Sleep. Stroll. Sip. !
