Helmed by the cocktail crafter behind Wisdom, the Bat's an H Street hole-in-the-wall guiding guests through the art of cocktail design; the space is a low-lit, boozy bungalow organically festooned with live ferns growing out of the walls, multiple hanging wicker fruit baskets, and atop the bar, a small herb garden, so don't hang out with the bar if you want anyone to think you're cool. Patrons are shepherded through a multi-level drink design process, which includes selecting a "base" (from gin and vodka, to a hearty selection of rums), adding a liqueur "modifier" (like red/white vermouth, orange curacao, falernum, or creme de cacao), choosing a fresh squeezed fruit juice, and finally adding a "tweak" (from liquid agave to cane sugar) to add some sweetness, although you'd better like your drink shaken if you're throwing Walter Payton in there. For the completely boring non-experimental, they've also got pre-made infusions (served as a shot, cocktail, or martini) like cherry vodka/cucumber/sake and vanilla vodka/cinnamon/apple, plus a specialty 'tail list with goodness like the gin/apricot liqueur/fresh grapefruit La Revolucion, the rye/Guyot creme de Cassis/orange Scarface, and the banana rum/Aguardiente Colombian Necktie -- just be especially careful when tying one on.
