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

This is a fun bar that I went with my company to for Happy Hour. The space is pretty large, with two bars, pool tables, tvs and plenty of things to do. I don't think they offer food, but the drinks were a good price...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.

We were on a girls trip to DC and just happened to find this place. We didn't eat there, drinks were what we consumed. We had an awesome time and the bartenders were great!!!

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.

Rocket Bar is an awesome basement bar across the street from the Verizon Center. It's usually packed wall-to-wall after Capitols games, but if you go on a non-game weeknight, you won't have any problems finding a dart board or pool table. It's an awesome hangout,...More

Great college bar. Tons of space and lots of games to play including pool, shuffle board, ski ball, golden tee and other video/arcade games. Good location. Unfortunately being a basement bar in DC and so busy it sometimes has a tendency to smell a little...More
