This place is amazing! I surprised my husband for his birthday, and we enjoyed every second of the experience. The cocktails were creative and delicious, and the environment is great. I highly recommend!
Honestly, one of the best experiences I’ve had to date. Perfectly curated cocktails and a thoughtful experience. The vibe was right, the playlist right, and a fun date night!
Literally one of the best bars in DC. Clean, Fun, Inviting and just cool! Great atmosphere and Hakim is the most knowledgeable yet personable bartender I've dealt with to date! Get to this place you will not be disappointed

We didn’t try the food, so I’m not sure how that affects the rating. This was an amazing cocktail experience and I highly recommend it!!!
Amazing spot! Truly enjoyed the experience at this gem! We had the regional trio of the Middle East, and the flavors and aromas were intoxicating! Loved every minute of our night here!
Such a great experience every time!
Arguably one of the best Cocktail Bars in DC! Super friendly and knowledgeable staff!
Great ambiance and great service ! Recommended this place to all my friends will be back this week.
Nocturne is a fabulous and fun cocktail bar. They take pride in their drink creations and it shows. The menu is always changing! I have not experienced the food there- it is not an extensive menu but bar snacks! We go for the drinks!! They are on the expensive side but it is a treat. The space is small and intimate and does not feel crowded. Music is fun and overall vibe is great! We have made it our Valentines Day tradition and have not been disappointed. Definitely check it out!
This place is very classy and a great place to impress a date.
Great ambience Even Greater Location!! The drinks were delicious!! Its a must go if u ever in the D.C area , especially if u are with your significant other.
Great ambiance, drinks, and service. Highly recommend for a date or a small group (4ppl) outing!
Excellent all around!
Tasty creative drinks...fun ambiance...great staff and owners
We had to wait outside for 20’ before someone came to open. No apologies for he delay. Only 1 person operating, they should hire someone else so that they can 1) take care of new guests coming in; 2) serve more drinks (very long time before we got our drink which was amazing btw). Cocktails are really fantastic though
This is a gem of a speakeasy that was so perfect for my birthday! H. Hakim was amazing and it felt like sitting at a chefs table hearing him describe each drink and ensuring we had the best drink experience. The atmosphere is perfect for special occasions or even a nice date. Great drinks that are a unique and delicious experience ina cool, chill lounge like atmosphere. Best speakeasy I’ve been to.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. The drinks are very unique and it’s fun to watch all the ingredients be made as well as the final pour. It’s decorated well and the staff is nice and informative.
Great atmosphere and the most knowledgeable, engaged service. The guys creating the cocktails were so passionate and skilled; they made it a wonderful experience.
Fantastic date spot. Already planning on returning!
The drinks were great and all came with their own back story that had a strong theme trying them together. Very unique drinks and a memorable experience.
Very interesting bar!!! Had a great experience, and loved the passion behind the cocktails! There is only one thing I would recommend, adding better snack/appetizer selections.
The best experience we have every had at a bar. The passion behind every cocktail is mind blowing . This is a must go to when you are in DC.
Our visit had a rocky start -- Nocturne is located in the basement of a donut shop through which visitors must enter, but the donut shop was closed and locked. We spent 15 minutes in the rain calling the bar, with no answer. When Brandon finally came to let us in, we said "we've been standing confused out here trying to call you guys for 15 minutes," and his response was "it's all good" and he offered no apology. I'm in my early 20s and usually try to be chill, roll with the punches, and avoid commenting on service-related problems, but this was just too rude to ignore. The experience then improved in the very cool atmosphere of the bar, and we enjoyed our drinks, especially Ojos del Pina and Garden Of. The only drink we didn't like was Xoco Loco.
As always, had a great time at Nocturne. Celebrated the new year there and Hakim and his team. They did a great job of entertaining and explaining the menu and each drink. the ambiance was great and the cocktails were exotic, unique and tasted great.
Hakim and Xavier are so engaging and personable. The cocktails are very elaborate and really require a passionate and knowledgeable person behind the bar to really connect with the guests and cultivate their experience. Hakim your cocktails are amazing! And Xavier is an amazing conductor!
It’s a shame what happened to this place: it went from a very good spot in the city, to a mediocre bar. The drinks created by the new bartender are bad (tried the entire menu), and the service is terrible. I asked for a non-sweet drink, and he made a drink with one the main ingredients being sugar. When I pointed out that the the drink was sweet, the bartender said I was wrong, that all his drinks were balanced. No apologies, no effort to make it better. When explained that everybody has a different palate, and pointed out the drinks I normally enjoyed, he just walked away without saying anything. Really bad service and drinks will translate in this place dying soon
This is a great experience when you feel like having an upscale evening or impressing friends!
The bar /restaurant was by far one of the best experiences ever. I had the opportunity to explore this restaurant GEM several months ago. Hakeem and Nate are some of the best mixologist in DC. I highly recommend this establishment. Thank you for enhancing my pallet. I was able to take a trip to the Scandinavian forest and back. I wish you all great success.
Hakim is amazing. Makes nocturne the best place to have a date (and unbelievable, creative drinks) in DC. Can’t wait to come back.
Great anniversary spot!
Hakim and Nate were amazing. The entire experience was phenomenal.
