    It’s Washington to a T! Clubby, circa-1900 atmosphere. Around the corner from the White House. A well-supplied bar. Bounteous seafood. Cheerful service. Kind of touristy but still fun.

    It's popular with locals & tourists alike, but visitors may not know about the great happy hour @ Old Ebbitt. Go there b4 6 or after 11pm to enjoy half price oysters, steps away from the White House.

    The back bar is the best, especially if you have an AT&T phone because there's no signal back there. Peace and quiet.

    Oh, let me guess: it's a Tuesday night and you're here because you're interning for a first-year congressman from Utah? You're not special, little snowflake. Go play in 15th Ave traffic.
