    Good place to meet people. Sadly they close the rooftop bar too early and force everyone out. That was a crappy experience.

    During happy hour, I think 5-9 p.m., the signature cocktails are only $5. Great deal. Split the original pizza with a friend and it was great. Cool little spot along U street.

    This place gets packed. But it gets packed for a reason! The rooftop is the best in the area, and the dance floor with DJ gets things going. Local 16 sets the bar for U street
