Where to Play Gawker

By Anne Kenderdine

Dozens of movie stars, athletes and entertainers are expected to arrive in Washington in the next week. They'll be at the balls and parties, of course, but if you're hoping to catch a glimpse of your favorite actors -- or maybe get an autograph -- while they're in town, here's where some have been spotted in the past.

Cafe Milano
"D.C.'s culinary equivalent of a red carpet," according to the Post's Reliable Source column, is the go-to spot for celebrities, whether that's Placido Domingo, the Clintons, George Clooney, Stevie Wonder, Isaiah Washington, or visiting heads of state.

Charlie Palmer Steak
This modern steakhouse prime location right across Constitution Avenue from the Capitol means you could run into Hillary Clinton or Dianne Feinstein.

The upscale biker bar-meets-VJ lounge has hosted numerous celebrities in its first year. Tiger Woods dropped by for a cocktail. Adam Levine of Maroon 5 slung drinks behind the bar. Even Bob Saget got a table when he was in town.

Morton's -- Georgetown
Tiger Woods, Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers are among the celebs who've dined at steakhouse.

The Palm
Exactly what you'd expect from a D.C. steakhouse with portraits of celebrities on its walls -- lots of senators and lobbyists, lots of cable media types, and the occasional George Clooney sighting.

The Park at 14th
A swank, well-appointed nightclub and lounge caters to younger celebrities -- Usher, Will I. Am., Carmen Electra, Clinton Portis and members of the Washington Wizards and L.A. Lakers. Getting in can be tough if you're not dressed to the nines.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal and Fox News' Megyn Kelly have been spotted at the tapas restaurant, which is hot with TV foodies, including Rachael Ray, Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali.
