    They let you bring in your own food, which is awesome because Shake Shack is two blocks away!

    Learned here I'm terrible at shuffleboard. Plus, it's a dive bar. Blink, and you'll miss the entrance. Surprisingly good martini, however.

    Cool late night place if you want to play games. Not so great during the day since it's really dark and in the basement. Kind of trashy.

    Free darts. Enough said.

    Jean Celso · December 31, 2014
  • Brett M.

    There is usually a wait for the pool tables but they do it in an organized fashion so you don't wait too long.

    No food but u can go get food from elsewhere n bring it in... but drinks are good

    Shanber Rose · December 4, 2014
  • Michael S.

    Cheap and loud. Good for groups or for listening to the jukebox while downing some shots and cocktails.

    Michael Singletary · August 22, 2014

    Best bar around, it's amazing and so chill!

    Nicholas Perez · August 10, 2014

    Don't come here. They yell at you when is time to leave. So disrespectful. We are paying guests. No need to yell at people to get out.... Boycott it...

    Antonio Urbina · August 11, 2013
  • Amy T.

    Great if you want to play pool, shuffleboard or skeeball!

    BYOF (Bring Your Own Food). Tortilla Coast delivers for free while you play games.

    Haven't been here in a while. Disappointed to see they no longer have Pacman.

    Rocket fuel red ale is awesome.

    Nancy Chu · March 31, 2013
  • Taste and See ™.

    Yes, it smells like pee, sometimes vom, here. Totally okay, because there's Skee Ball, Ice Hockey and pool tables in Chinatown.

    Good draft beer selection

    Rocket Bar is an official participant in the Caps on Tap Bar Tour. Stop in for a drink, it’s conveniently located right across the street from Verizon Center.

    This is the sort of place that shows MMA on the TVs. Just FYI.

    There's no kitchen or coffee, but you can order delivery from California Tortilla, and they have Red Bull.

    Patrick Curran · July 25, 2012
  • Sunny C.

    You can order food to be delivered. There are enough pool tables around. And even a jukebox machine where you can pay to listen to your favorite songs to be played.

    Smells like the inside of a hobo's toe jam.

    After a Caps game, this is a good place to hang out while waiting for the crowd at the metro station to thin out a little bit

    NEVER buy a song at the juke box unless you're willing to pay like $5 a song to skip the line.

    Alley roller league is NOT skeeball! These machines are a disgrace!
