This bar is in the Georgetown Westin and is not a lobby bar where one can people watch. You step down into the bar and it is a like a dark cave. We didn't stay to enjoy our drinks and took them to our room...More

Worst service I've ever had in a bar in DC. The bartender didn't seem to understand his job involved customer service; we were over charged for drinks; and, in general, neither the bartender or manager seemed to care about their very poor service even after...More

I liked this place a lot. They have a nice margarita, and and the mole enchiladas are the real deal. They have a variety of really good looking items, all very authentic looking. Very centrally located, service was excellent.

It's so sad that this Westin has never had good restaurants. It's in a good location and there are good restaurants around (see Blue Duck across the street at the Park Hyatt), but this is not one of them. Went recently at the recommendation of...More

Description
Boveda - which literally means vault- is a Latin Speakeasy located in the West End neighborhood of Georgetown. Properly chaotic, casual, and affordable, Boveda is the clandestine destination for vibrant eclectic music, unique cocktails, and inspired modern Latin American dishes. Diners may enjoy various seating areas within the intimate space including raised booths, banquettes, communal tables, a lounge, a neighborhood bar, and a tavern-esque private area. This hidden gem reveals reclaimed wood ceilings and floors, Spanish pewter lanterns with filigree detailing, large antique mirrors, field stone walls, and vintage Cuban floor tiles. Private dining available as well.
