Upcoming Events

Greek Wine Class  

Tuesday June 26th
6.30pm - 8.00pm

Having just returned from 10 days of wine tasting around Greek islands, Bryan Smith is itching to share his new-found favorites and regale stories of the country that is fast becoming his favorite wine producer.

In this 90 minute class Bryan will guide you through grapes you've never heard of, appellations that sound like Greek gods and producers so passionate that you'll want to ditch your day-job and run off to a Greek vineyard.

Knob Creek Bottle Engraving

Tuesday July 10th

After the success of our personalized Woodford Reserve bottles, Johann, Rob, Ranga and Diaz hand-selected a barrel of Knob Creek Single Barrel to become Prequel's very own. The barrel has now been poured into bottles and is ready for us.

On July 10th we will be receiving shipment of our barrel and bottles, and will have an engraver join us for the evening, who will include a special personalized note for you on every bottle you order.

We'll provide more details next week (such as price and how many characters you can have in your message), but mark this in your calendars now!


Our beverage team will always be offering the best in mixology and varietal sourcing.

We have the largest barrel-aged cocktail selection in DC, as well as a mix of innovative, modern cocktails, and timeless classics. We love wine, and have made it a policy to be as price-competitive with our selection as possible. The local beer community is thriving, so we also have our hand-picked selection of the best beers out there right now.

The premise of Prequel is to give chefs a platform to experiment with dishes, or an entirely new concept, that they would like to bring to DC. Pop-ups can last a night to three months, so always keep an eye out for whats coming soon.

Experimental dishes. Exclusive first tastes. Exciting every time.
