Perfect DC Date Night: Food & Drinks on the Potomac and a Kennedy Center Show

Given our close proximity to the Kennedy Center, Founding Farmers Fishers & Bakers is one of the best go-to spots to grab a bite before the show or have a nightcap and dessert afterwards. It is also a great way to spend a perfect date night in DC. 

The Georgetown Waterfront is one of the most picturesque places in all of DC. It is also perfect for romantic strolls on the Potomac River. The warmer months bring many festivities and boats moored along the boardwalk. The cooler months bring the brisk nighttime air filled with lights, fun on the skating rink at the center of Washington Harbour, and the revelry of wintertime. 

A walk along the banks of the river takes you directly to and from Founding Farmers Fishers & Bakers to the Kennedy Center. From August 2 through October 9, the smash-hit musical ”Hamilton” is in full force at the Kennedy Center. A meal, a stroll, and a show might just be your next great date night. 

Our restaurant has an outdoor patio, open all year, with scratch-made dishes and craft cocktails, made from our very own spirits, to make your date night complete. Whether you join us before or after your show, you’re guaranteed delicious food and drink. 

In addition to “Hamilton,” the show options at the Kennedy Center are plentiful. You can  enjoy performances by the world renowned artists of the Kennedy Center’s National Symphony Orchestra or the Washington National Opera, amazing dance performances from companies spanning the globe, hilarious comedy shows, and more. You will be delighted by all the creative talent that the Kennedy Center has to offer any time of year. Check out their full calendar of  What’s On to see what is currently showing. 

The Kennedy Center, which opened in 1971, is the nation’s busiest performing arts center, hosting approximately 3,000 events each year for audiences totaling more than two million. Enjoying a cocktail, a meal, and a sweet treat with us before and/or after the show with a walk along the Potomac is the perfect way to take advantage of the awesomeness of the Kennedy Center and our Nation’s Capital. We are sure you don’t regret it. You might even say it was the best date night ever. 

If possible, we recommend making a reservation.
