Philosophy

Nocturne is a 17 seat cocktail bar in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Tucked away in the basement of Sugar Shack Donuts and Coffee, Nocturne invites you to experience all the senses in an intimate atmosphere. Nocturne is a concept bar based on the "The Abandoned Apartment in Paris". The Abandoned Apartment was one of the original drinks on the menu of their sister bar, Captain Gregory's. Await your experience in a Parisienne salon before emerging into a bar du jardin under the stars.

Nocturne is a pre- and post- dinner destination focusing on innovative tasting flights and small bar snacks. We aim for an interactive experience where patrons can feel free to ask about the equipment, techniques and ingredients. Nocturne has over 30 orginial drinks in its menu rotation, making for a unique experience every visit and a multitude of combinations. 

Reservations for Nocturne will be exclusively available through Open Table.
