The crew from "Ocean’s Eleven" might find this safe the most intriguing—and drinkable—spot in the District.
You don’t need an expert lock-picker to break into the stash at The Ritz-Carlton’s Quandrant Bar & Lounge and its recently unveiled The Vault. But you do need some serious cash.
The custom-built safe holds up to 30 bottles of rare sips, including the Dalmore 35-year-old single-malt Scotch whisky ($1,000 for a 2-ounce pour) and the Bowmore 1961 50-year-old single-malt Scotch whisky ($5,000 a pour).
