in Adams Morgan

Dark, intimate, close and sexy – that's the scene at Bossa. The soundtrack, if you couldn't guess: jazz, flamenco and bossa nova played in the candlelit lounge. It's a relatively chilled-out spot to drink mojitos and caipirinhas early on, and then it gets its groove on, so bring your dancing feet and prepare to samba (or salsa, or bachata…).

Often there's a cover charge, but it's rarely more than $10.
