Great Bars 2013: Boundary Stone

From the name—a reference to the markers that once defined the
District’s borders—to the stained-glass DC flag, Washington pride runs
strong at this Bloomingdale haunt. The affection is mutual: Since opening
in 2011, Boundary Stone has become a neighborhood gathering place and one
of the city’s most beloved bars. Given the gritty aesthetic—a wall-mounted
jukebox, cement floors—you might not expect a sophisticated menu, but
creamy crab dip and honey hot wings soar above the usual pub fare. Insider
tip: Like whiskey? There are more than 100 here. Open daily.
