WELCOME

Thank you to everyone who visited the Columbia Room over the past 5 years. We feel honored to have been a part of your birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, date nights, and family reunions. We loved making every drink and sharing our passion with you.

We will re-open in our new location at the end of the year and cannot wait to show you what we have in store. 

If you'd like to reach us, you can email info@laughingcocktail.com or call us at 202-316-9396.

In the meantime, you can visit us up the street at Mockingbird Hill, Eat the Rich, and Southern Efficiency.


Columbia Room is an award-winning cocktail bar created by Derek Brown, serving classic cocktails and small plates. We serve both a tasting menu and à la carte options. Our bartenders offer an intimate experience with the highest level of service and attention to detail. We believe, as cocktail aficionado David Embury once wrote, “a cocktail should stimulate the mind as well as the appetite.” Please join us for this one-of-a-kind, culinary experience that the Washington Post praised as: “sublime sipping” with “great ingredients, superb craftsmanship, [and] a bit of lore with the liquid.”
