Trip to contemporary Spain by way of a Logan Circle wormhole. The décor mixes traditional tiles, wrought iron and whimsical notes. An Iberian-focused wine list contains cavas, juicy riojas, wines from the Canary Islands and Mallorca and pricy Bordeaux-style blends from Priorat. The bar also takes pride in wine-based cocktails like Tecolate (tequila, cava, rosemary and grapefruit), Calimocho (red wine and cola) and slurpee-like “slushitos.” Build a base of pintxos (skewered morsels) and open-faced montaditos. Pair desserts like warm chocolate hazelnut cake with sweet port and Madeira.

The Spanish fare at Estadio is top notch, as is the beverage program. If you haven't tried Spanish cider yet, this is the place to do it.
Estadio has delicious tapas...if they have the sweetbreads available, get them. I had the soft meat here for the first time, and I've never been able to find it prepared better elsewhere. This is a more expensive restaurant, but it's great for a special date, and it's in a great location on 14th St, where you can walk to lots of other attractions.
