Programming on the roof will is business as usual. Donovan House is offering the following happy hour specials. Please take advantage of these specials and brands, because others could be higher.

More Info
Join me and the other HHHHers for a little liquid Thanksgiving. We’ll be returning to the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel this month. As we’ve been doing for the past few years, we’ll be meeting on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. It’s sort of like a Thursday and always seems to draw a good crowd.

There won’t be a drink ticket system this month. Helpful hint: Having cash on hand helps to keep the transactions quick.

This month, 10% of the proceeds from the specialty $5 handcrafted cocktails will go to support PFLAG.

Come out to see your friends before the holiday and to support a good cause.

Holy Humidity Homos,

This month, you can choose to be indoors or outdoors. We’re returning to the Doubletree Hotel on Rhode Island Ave. We’ll have bars in both the inside space and the interior courtyard terrace.

We’ll be using the drink ticket system at this venue. It really does help with efficiency at the bars. There will be one cashier accepting both credit cards and cash and the other(s) just cash, but cash will alway speed things up! Tax and gratuity are both already INCLUDED in your drink ticket prices.

See you Thursday!
