Popped in here every evening while on a three night business trip to Washington. The bar was very helpful in suggesting a couple of beers I might like. His recommendation was pretty sound and encouraged me to stay for a few more and return the...More

Low key, dark, a bit grimy, casual, friendly, good happy hour prices, burgers that are decent and cheap. Big Hunt has been around for a while and is a nice counterpoint to the pretensions you see other places in the area.

We stopped in for their late-night amateur stand-up comedy with friends who have been here before for this very thing. The place is really run down and absolutely nasty. The drinks were just OK, definitely a “dive bar” feel to the place and the drinks....More

Not far from Embassy Row, across from new upscale shops, is this place. It's a dive bar, honest to goodness, kind of dark, stuff on the walls, dusty chandeliers, it's awesome. Better than average beer selection, good service. Happy Hour specials.

I believe I would rate this place 3 points on TripAdvisor. I stopped here for drinks one evening after dinner. However, I am giving it 4 points because of the bartender. I wanted to try all of their IPA options that night. They had about...More

If you are a stand-up fan, you must go here. It has a similar feel to the comedy cellar in New York, and it features some really funny people. For only 15 bucks we got to see 5 comedians, all of whom were funny, and...More
