Perfect DC Date Night: Food & Drinks on the Potomac and a Kennedy Center Show

Given our close proximity to the Kennedy Center, Farmers Fishers Bakers is one of the best go-to spots to grab a bite before a show or enjoy a nightcap and dessert afterwards. It is also a great way to create the perfect DC date night.

Farmers Fishers Bakers is located on Georgetown’s waterfront at Washington Harbour, which is the ultimate in summertime cool. You can almost forget you are in the nation’s capital while taking a walk along the boardwalk checking out the many boats moored, filled with nighttime fun and revelry, and creating quite a lively scene.

You can enjoy a picturesque walk along the banks of the Potomac River to and from our Farmers Fishers Bakers to the Kennedy Center. And then anchor yourself at our outdoor patio for one of our craft cocktails made with our very own spirits and some tasty scratch-made food.

The show options at the Kennedy Center are plentiful. You can take in one of the free shows offered every day at 6pm at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, all part of the center’s “Performing Arts for Everyone” initiative. Or, score some tickets to the award-winning, crowd-pleasing Hamilton coming to DC in June. Either way, you have all of the fixings for possibly the best date night ever. Our FFB bar team has even created some Hamilton-themed cocktails to be served at our FFB bar from Saturday, June 30th through Sunday, September 16th.

Come in to try our Hamilton’s Founders Fizz ($10) made with blue gin, lime, cane syrup, egg white, and club soda; or our Bitter “Burr”($12) with Plantation Original Dark Rum, Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, and absinthe bitters; or My Shot ($12) crafted with espresso, Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, and Firestone Oatmeal Stout.

The Kennedy Center, which opened in 1971, is the nation’s busiest performing arts center, hosting approximately 3,000 events each year for audiences numbering more than two million. Hamilton is just one of the many spring and summertime shows. If Hamilton is your pick, grab your tickets soon before it is sold out. Then, make a reservation at Farmers Fishers Bakers before the show. We are sure you won’t regret it. You might even say it was the best date night ever.
