    Fun bar! Head to the basement where you can rent skeeball lanes or shuffleboard tables!! Get on the list with the bartender - it's $20 per hour for 4 to play. We had a lot of fun!

    Skee ball machines downstairs.... So good! Mystery shots... So bad! Come here for a good place to hang out. We went on a Thursday and it was not crowded at all... So we played lots of skee ball!

    Iron Horse is awesome. The bartender downstairs was really cool. All the people were hip and young, ton of beers were on tap, and the games (ski ball, etc) were mad fun. Definitely worth a visit!

    Amazing list of local craft beers and far flung crafts from Hawaii, etc. Definitely worth multiple visits!

    Great, constantly changing selection of craft beers, always including some rarities. Tap takeovers and a box with some specials at the upstairs bar.

    If you like skeeball, shuffleboard, or antique motorcycles, this is your bar. Perfect for large groups. Great selection of microbrews, and the jukebox isn't half bad either. $2 off drafts at hh.

    A country bar right downtown in DC. Very cheap, but great selection of beer. I love it, especially for being so close to the Verizon Center.

    Come for happy hour and get take-out or order in! They don't have a kitchen but you can have food delivered from anywhere in the neighboorhood. Cheap beers and dinner from Oyamel? Don't mind if I do!

    Iron's a sprawling, bi-level, moto-obsessed brewhouse, with vintage bikes (from a '63 Norton to a '67 Triumph) hanging from the downstairs ceiling and inset into the upstairs wall. Read more

    Although downstairs has bar games, it feels like a basement. Upstairs bar is a better atmosphere.

    Local called this a dive bar. This is the fanciest dumpin dive bar I've seen then. It's a bar. Not a dive yo. I'd recommend. Come on it.

    If you're going to make fun of "light beer" and not tell me what it really is, at least have the stones to either charge $2 or $10 NOT the standard $5. Lame.
