Summertime sampling has become an art form at these spots.
Summer cocktail flights at Zentan are an homage to Japan's "chotto ippai."

Perfect for your inner globetrotter, take a trip to Tokyo with Zentan’s chotto ippai (“let’s have a quick drink”) cocktail flight. Relax with friends after your week with a flight of three Japanese-inspired sips for the ultimate getaway. 1155 14th St. NW, 202.379.4366
