Well, this would be worth a trip! DC's Witchiest Bar Will Have Tarot Cards, Zodiac Cocktails, and Unicorn Taxidermy

Gather your coven and follow the smell of incense to Hex. The 35-seat cocktail lounge coming to the second floor of The Passenger in April will have a witch vibe that's less Halloween store and more like a visit to your quirky aunt's house. You know, the one who's always rolling crystals around in her fists to the tune of Santana's "Black Magic Woman."
"I've always had an interest in all the dark stuff," says Passenger and Hex General Manager Kit Yarber. The former Left Door bartender and manager touts that he has collectables from Beetlejuice and watched anything witchy from the 90's with abandon including The Addams FamilyThe Nightmare Before Christmas, and Witches starring Anjelica Huston
At first, bar owner Tom Brown wasn't on board with Hex for fear Yarber would turn the top floor, that's hosted everything from a Hogo pop-up to stand-up comedy, into a goth bar. But the pair struck a deal over a faux taxidermy unicorn head with a Rapunzel-like mane. Brown discovered it online but realized that with shipping from the United Kingdom the unicorn would cost more than a grand. Yarber proposed that if Brown committed to Hex, and to giving him carte blanche on the concept, he'd personally shell out for the unicorn. Done.
"It's going to be unapologetically dark, but not in a kitschy way," Yarber says. Compared to the lively Passenger downstairs, Hex will be more of a dimly-lit, hushed gathering place for easy conversation and heady drinks.
