A wonderful low-key LGBT oasis in stress filled DC. Note: They do welcome all well behaved humans and dogs. The corner patio area is great for people and dog watching. It's too bad food is not served. But I understand you can bring your own.

Came in here for drinks after dinner at Lauriol Plaza and had a really good time. It was packed, but the staff kept a friendly eye on us. Crowd was also great and in good spirits.

Everyone was on their devices (including the bartenders) and for god sake don't say hello to anyone or try to strike up a conversation with the bartender. The straight guys next door at Rebellion were a lot friendlier.More

Larry's Lounge is a neighborhood bar with pleasant staff and patrons. We especially like it in warmer weather, when we can bring our dog and sit outside. Lots of street traffic that you can watch go by, while you sip a drink.

That's quite the adventure, Alton. Writing a thesis is impressive, but writing a thesis in a bar is simply genius. I'm glad our place means so much to you -- we love our customers! Feel free to stop by anytime. See you then, Ron, Owner
