Those in search of wild — or late — nightlife will probably look to Bethesda and Washington, D.C. But Potomac offers several relaxed and charming locales for a glass of wine or a pint of brew. Hunter's Inn in Potomac Village is a local institution, and not a bad place to spot powerful Washingtonians. The Irish Inn at Glen Echo has a full-service restaurant and a separate pub, run by Christy Hughes, proprietor of the Dubliner on Capitol Hill. Normandie Farms has extensive list of fine wines, cognacs, vintage ports, spirits and "Normandi Farm" private label wines, and live entertainment Friday and Saturday evenings from 7 p.m. to midnight.
