Show of Hands serves as the cocktail and wine bar at The Roost and will emphasize drinks crafted from housemade spirits backed by a stellar selection of compelling wines.
Nick Farrell is the mind behind and doesn't think bartenders making their own potions is a new trend, rather he does it because it's a personal passion. “I’ve been lucky enough working in restaurant bars to have access to cool equipment to make syrups and infusions a lot throughout my day-to-day work” he says “and I think in general there’s been a lot more consciousness about what goes into our bodies. We all love the social aspect of drinking, but we like taking care of ourselves as well. Everybody wants to spend as much time with friends as possible, but what do you do after you've had your second Manhattan?” To that end, Nick will offer a focused selection of low alcohol drinks in addition to the classics
Designed first and foremost as a neighborhood gathering place, Show of Hands will undoubtedly find its mark as one of DC's great bars.
