We enjoy stopping in at the Elephant and Castle for a pint or glass of wine. They have a number of excellent beers, especially from the UK and Ireland, on tap along with others rarely found in other DC bars. Elephant and Castle is conveniently located on Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. adjacent to the downtown theaters and museums. The bar can get really crowded, especially in the winter when the outdoor seating is closed but the atmosphere is fun and lively.
In my opinion the food is OK although we rarely come here to eat, however we do stop in here somewhat frequently when downtown for a pint.
There is also another Elephant and Castle at 19th and I on the other side of downtown. I recommend stopping in for a pint.
