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.
