Best Art Gallery

Vermillion

So many galleries host First Thursdays with Two-Buck Chuck and shutter their doors at the stroke of 9. But Vermillion, Capitol Hill's gallery/pub, encourages arts appreciation during each of its operating hours, and offers reasonably priced wine, beer, specialty drinks, and cafe fare to enjoy along with the exhibits. Bringing art to the public via a bar might make some aesthetes turn up their noses, but Vermillion's snob-free zone, respectable show history, and double-duty space brings much texture to the scene.
