2 Hours Admiring Political Powerhouses in Georgetown

Power lunch with politicos, see where JFK proposed to Jackie and walk the cobblestone streets to the couple’s former Georgetown home.

Stop One

Enjoy a power meal with politicos

Café Milano (3251 Prospect St NW), Fiola Mare (3050 K St NW) or Seasons (2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW) A favorite of the Obamas, ambassadors and the who’s who of DC, Café Milano is the place to be seen in the political arena for a bite to eat. Another celebrity hotspot, Fiola Mare attracts the Hill and Hollywood alike with a waterfront dining experience recognized as one of the best in the city. Sit at the bar for a quicker lunch. For an earlier start to the day, try breakfast at Seasons, inside Four Seasons hotel. You’ll be in good company.

 

Stop Two

Pose with a pint in the JFK ‘Proposal Booth’

Martin’s Tavern (1264 Wisconsin Avenue NW) This Georgetown institution is the ‘Cheers’ of the neighborhood…with more famous clientele. Grab a pint and get your picture taken in the booth where JFK proposed to Jackie in 1953.

 

Stop Three

Walk in a president’s footsteps

3307 N Street NW Need to walk off that Guinness? Head outside for a leisurely stroll through the quaint side streets of Wisconsin Avenue, including a stop at 3307 N St NW—the Federal-style rowhouse where the Kennedys lived when JFK was elected president.
