New York hospitality group Public House Collective (The Rum House, Ward III) is behind Washington, D.C.'s newly minted Quarter+Glory, an American tavern inspired by old New York. Here, one will find a mix of seasonally-changing libations flavored with tamarind vinegar and sarsaparilla, in addition to all the classics. Below, the bar offers a smokey riff on the Negroni, with mezcal stepping in for gin.
