Russia House

Made my first visit to the dramatic Russia House on 1800 Connecticut Ave NW. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this converted three story townhouse. It is an upscale lounge with a bar on every floor serving enough vodka to make Stalin proud.

Oh, and all the waitresses are hot, unapproachable Ruskie girls.

I really want to go back, but will probably stay away from the Russian Mule. Even though its the most masculine martini, it will keep your insides as warm as a Siberian winter. The females in your party will be delighted by the decorative hearts drawn on the Sputnik martini.

Its a pricey lounge, but offers a very different experience than say, I don't know, the Royal Palace across the street.
