Located at the east end of the H Street Corridor, The Pursuit Wine Bar features an extensive by-the-glass wine list paired with contemporary American comfort foods.


The Pursuit Wine Bar opened in June 2014 and is the inaugural restaurant creation of Thomas Boisvert and Kathleen Davis. Since opening its doors, The Pursuit Wine Bar has become a favorite for locals and was named The Best Wine Bar in DC by Washington City Paper for 2015.

The Pursuit Wine Bar's interior was designed by Boisvert and Davis and creates a comfortable and relaxing environment.  The first floor includes a lively bar, open kitchen and secret garden patio out back.  The upstairs lounge houses several comfortable couches and is an ideal setting to kick back and enjoy a few glasses of wine with good friends.  Regardless of where one sits, guests can enjoy over 45 different wines by the glass from a wine list that knows no geographical or varietal boundaries.
