I don't care for Green Turtle, bland greasy food. We didn't eat here, we just had a couple drinks. It had weird screens showing space type cartoons from the 50's. It reminded us of a bad acid trip from the 50's. It was uncomfortable. It was downstairs with some pool tables and a couple of different bars. The bartenders were... More

Good food. Great atmosphere. Enjoyed myself even going solo. Made me feel right at home. Service was as excellent as the drinks.

Went to this bar looking for something different, and it was nice and had some good beers on tap. The staff was friendly also.

We went here after a lot of people at the Caps game told us to try it out. We were told it was hip, trendy, and fun. We found it to be a standard dive bar and nothing special. It was a great option for after game drinking and hanging out but nothing more.

We were just walking around looking for a place to hang out after our Haunted House Tour at the Crime Museum on Halloween Night. We would have walked by and not known it was there except for the chalk sandwich board advertising $4 pumpkin ales all night plus pool, darts and shuffleboard. Plus no cover was a bonus. Surprised how... More

I really like this bar. It is located under ground in the basement level of some buildings across the street from the Verizon Center. There are a couple bars and a ton of pool tables down there. Its a little tough to find your first time, but look for a little rocket ship above the door to go downstairs. Lots... More

Went here with a friend for happy hour. Never heard of the place,but found it on Google Maps while walking around Chinatown. Drinks are good for a reasonable price. Staff is friendly and the crowd is a mix of different ethnic cultures which is nice.
