    Wednesdays are 1/2 price burger night, we recommend the Cowboy Burger which is topped with bacon, BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, and an onion ring!

    Excellent service. Kitchen closes at midnight, so order early. Food is standard bar food, but there is a good selection of beers available. Nice, hole in the wall type bar.

    The bartenders are awesome. Don't ask for your regular @craftbeer or drink, let them do what they do best, take care of you. Great beers and unpretentious atmosphere makes this place memorable.

    Overall a fun place! Ski ball upstairs and a rooftop seating area, good beer selection, and you can catch some funny comedy at nights in the basements for a good price.

    Manly (and strange) decor marks this watering hole, which offers an oasis from D.C. grad students and suits. Get a pint of Red Hook. They're three measly bucks on Thursdays.

    Get the 15cent wings on Tuesday, sit on the rooftop in the summer, drink great lakes beer, grab a booth with friends at happy hour, ask for Evan to serve you, chat with the bartenders, compare ink :)

    Staff here pays more attention to its beer lists than almost anywhere in town. If Dave C. is working behind the bar, pick his brain for recommendations -- and ask about 3 Stars Brewing.

    The hip Dupont Circle watering hole can show your favorite football game, no matter the location, & better yet, it’ll pour you $3 house drafts for all 4 quarters.
