Electric Cool-Aid, nestled in the middle of Shaw, has just opened to the public. The new outdoor bar is notorious for their 5-foot-tall drink machines that are pumping out frozen cocktails. Housed in a former parking lot, Electric Cool-Aid currently features 19 socially distanced picnic tables and a sprawling mural to match its eclectic nature. In terms of the menu, guests are able to sip on carefully crafted beverages like the frozen irish coffee, frosé, dole whipped piña colada and frozen mules. For food, Electric Cool-Aid has partnered with a rotating selection of DC's most beloved food trucks like Swizzler, Timber Pizza Co along with Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken. www.electriccool-aid.com ; 202-921-9021
