    Good place to stop for a Corona on the rooftop in the summer or delve I to their basement tequileria for fancy fare or the ground level for Tacos and nachos. There's always some going on: from HH, daily specials, dancing on Thursdays and Fridays. This place has quite a scene on DC's hip 14th street and is packed solid like a sardine can on weekends.

    Everything Tequila! Over a hundred brands on hand to choose from while listening to good Latin music and enjoying the special of the day. Tuesday Tacos featured swordfish, cilantro, pineapple and cucumbers. At $2 each they were a steal. Three levels, all very different. First floor is laid back, the basement hops more during the late night but is fun to commandeer on a hot afternoon. The roof is open air and definitely a younger crowd .

    El Centro is fairly new but they've already established themselves as one of DC's best Mexican restaurants.
    I ate downstairs in their underground tequileria section, which also serves food but has a long bar as well with a number of talented mixologists mixing up tequila cocktails (there are other drinks available as well, but it's hard not to go for tequila in a tequileria). The drinks are FANTASTIC - I tried a mango margarita which was super refreshing, and sampled the Lavanda (tequila, St. Germain, lavender simple syrup. Delicious). The food is amazing - authentic, flavorful, and simple. I had the Chicken Enchiladas Divorciadas, and tried the Al Pastor tacos (which, aside from being a wonderful combination of pork and pineapple, come in the cutest taco holder you can imagine).
    Around 11pm, the music comes on and people start dancing so it can be a bit hard to hold a conversation. But if you want to stick around, head upstairs to the more relaxed taqueria, or, on a summer night, enjoy some more drinks on the rooftop lounge.
