Great atmosphere, good variety of drinks, great music and good and fast service. It's in a basement. Simple and nice decorated. Average prices. They could do more with cleaning the bar tables... Go there if you visit DC.

Love this place- no frills, no food, just a place where you can drink with friends. Beware if there is an event at Verizon Center, this bar will likely be packed with Caps Fans, WWE fans, Concert fans, etc. Its funny how the clientele changes...More

My friend and I found out about this place from a local. Awesome place with cheap (relative to DC) drinks and some fun games to pass the time and hang out. Had some pretty good local and micro brews too.

This basement establishment will get a bit grime as the night goes on. Definitely a good first stop for a drink. Always an option to close the night down and play some darts.
