Happy Hour Days: Wednesdays, Thursdays
With winged guitars flying across the ceiling and a hodgepodge of vintage couches lining the side rooms, this gritty two-story music space seems miles away from buttoned-up Washington. Free DJ dance nights at the upstairs bar bang out songs you can sing along to, but the venue’s hipster flag flies highest at quirky events such as dirty-word spelling bees, Twin Peaks parties, and indie concerts by the barrelful. The cover charge for live music varies.
