Crimson

A southern inspired diner + whiskey bar brought to Pod DC by two of Washington’s most prolific restaurant operators. Ian and Eric Hilton are local Washingtonians who are the talent behind some of the city’s most popular bars and restaurants.

Reflecting on the legendary charm and hospitality of the American South, restaurateurs Ian and Eric Hilton created Crimson — a collection of spaces where favorite American culinary classics and a taste of Southern way of life come together under one roof.

Featuring a café, a diner, a rooftop lounge and a subterranean whiskey bar, Crimson is a one-stop destination for all things southern comfort, DC-style.

627 H St NW, Washington, DC 20001
Located within the Pod DC hotel.
