I first went to Chaplin’s in the Shaw neighborhood of DC a few weeks back for drinks. We had already had dinner that night, but looking at the plates of food and steaming hot ramen that went by us, I knew I needed to return soon.
We recently went back with some friends and were seated in the upstairs dining room, with a perfect view of the (silent) Charlie Chaplin movie projected on the wall. As we knew from our previous visit, the drinks are on point. We especially liked the “Woman of Paris”, which is a rye whiskey based cocktail, and “A Dog’s Life “, which is also a whiskey and prosecco drink. Another favorite was The “Vagabond” , a light and refreshing gin and cucumber cocktail.
