Everything about our visit to the Round Robin Bar was wonderful. The decor is warm and inviting, it's easy to carry on a conversation, service was excellent, and the food and drinks were delicious. We enjoyed their signature cocktails (Leaves of Grass and Rail Candidate)....More

We stopped for drinks while staying at The Willard. The service is fabulous! Attentive and friendly! We ordered a few drinks and a few small plates. The flavors were all good and the drinks strong. Nice little stop!
