Sneak Away for a Quiet Glass of Red at Dickson Wine Bar
Shh… Regulars whisper that Dickson Wine Bar is the best kept secret on U Street! The bar also seems to revel in this mysterious air, as its website contains just the name and address and the building itself doesn’t even have a sign out front.
Here’s the inside scoop: Dickson is an upscale wine bar and meeting place set in a three-story rowhouse right where Florida Avenue turns into U Street. The ambiance is intimate and inviting, with warm lighting, stylish decor, and a noise level that will allow you to hear your tablemates without needing to shout.
The menu features small plates like hummus, burrata, shareable charcuterie and cheese plates, as well as a few more substantial choices, like banh mi sandwiches and flatbread pizzas. The selection of wines, of course, is also a major selling point, and the staff is always happy to help you choose something that suits your palate.
