Firefly Bar information
Firefly is a restaurant first – the Hotel Madera’s restaurant, to be precise – but we’re not listing it for those merits. We can say it’s one of the coolest bars in Dupont, decked out with its surreal, magically happy ‘firefly trees,’ all candlelit and reminiscent of childhood summer evenings, and romantic as hell to boot.
