    As a NYC transplant I found myself missing Lucy's... this is the perfect replacement. $2 Boh tall boys and some pinball will do just fine. Don't be an asshole, tip generously!

    Once I ordered a gimlet and the bartender gave me a glass of gin and five slices of lime. Amazing.

    Might be the diviest dive in DC. Your cell phone won't work inside, that's how old school of a dive bar it is.

    Great little neighborhood dive bar. The "grill" part is in name only. But they sell snacks.

    "Grill" may be a bit of a misnomer. But they have a lovely selection of Utz pretzels and potato chips.

    This dive bar is not particularly crowded, even on a weekend, and the crowd is one of the mellowest in DC.

    Love having this local bar nearby. Great crowd, greater jukebox, even greater prices.

    Put away your iPhone (it won't get reception inside anyway) and have a real conversation.

    Awesome original, non-internet jukebox. Go midweek to explore and chill.

    This neighborhood, hole in the wall bar, is the oldest operating bar in the District. Cash only bar, and decent prices, its the definition of dive bar. Hipster haters beware

    Funny that it's called the Raven "grill" cause there's actually nothing that even comes close to being grilled here.
