Derek Brown: A night with cocktail royalty

From creative pop-up bars to James Beard Award nominations, Derek Brown, 42, is considered a rock star in the craft cocktail scene. He is responsible for helping to transform the Washington landscape with Columbia Room and the connected triumvirate of Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency and Eat the Rich. He has promoted diversity — embracing D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood and events showcasing female bartenders at the time of the women’s march in January.
