Archipelago opened in Washington, DC in February 2016. The bar's owners collected bits and bobs of Polynesian Pop in preparation for opening the bar, including a shrine to Magnum, PI. The focus was on cocktails, including both classics and modern inventions, but there was a small menu of food, as well. The decor included a painted mural with palm scenes, and some thatch and lauhala touches.
Archipelago closed its doors on 8/26/2023.
