Lauriol Plaza

Bar in Dupont Circle & Kalorama

Lauriol doubles as a decent Mexican restaurant by day; by night, it's extremely popular with the young and frolicsome. Most folks go for the fruit-flavored margaritas – y’know, the ones that don’t taste like they’ve got any booze in them, and you really shouldn’t have ordered another three but whatever, man, there’s nothing in these…(30 minutes later)…Wooh! I love you, bro!

It's a huge, multilevel space. The outdoor patio sees the most action.
