DC’s Premier Hidden Cocktail Den

Nocturne is a 17 seat craft cocktail bar in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C. tucked away in the basement of Sugar Shack Donuts and Coffee. Nocturne is based on the "The Abandoned Apartment in Paris", an original cocktail on the menu of our sister bar, Captain Gregory's. Upon arrival you’ll await your experience in a Parisienne salon before emerging into a bar du jardin under the stars.

Nocturne is an intimate destination offering globally inspired cocktails paired with chef-curated bar snacks. Beverage Director Hakim Hamid and his team will guide your personal global journey through the Atlas menu, explaining ingredients and techniques, and aiding your selections among a diverse set of cocktails designed for all tastes, from simple classics to complex.
