COCKTAIL REFINEMENT
Spill the juvenile martini
— the kind filled with fruit juice and loony garnishes — and call for a grown-up classic at the polished LIBRARY BAR at the Melrose Hotel in Washington, D.C. With a classy piano in the background and handsome mahogany surrounds, these drinks get down to business in Capitol style. (202) 955-6400, www.melrosehotel.com
