No matter which presidential candidate you support on Tuesday's election night, Republican Donald Trump or Democratic Hillary Clinton, you might just need a drink.

It's projected to be a close race and waiting out the results may prove stressful. But that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun as well. If you happen to live in the city at the center of U.S. politics, Washington, D.C., there are plenty of options to have a little fun. A lot of bars and restaurants are running election night specials, as well, which means the party might not break the bank.

With help from Eater D.C., the Washington Post, Roll Call and the Washingtonian, here are a few of the best spots to hang out Tuesday.
