In September, we made all you football fans a list of Washington bars that play Sunday host to fans of NFL teams like Green Bay, Chicago, and Dallas. You flooded the comments with suggestions and questions about where fans of other teams might gather (“What about the Browns?” “You forgot the Broncos bar!”), so we did a little more sleuthing. Here’s what you helped us find. Sorry, Nicole, still no luck tracking down a Colts hangout. Tips, anyone?
Denver Broncos: Cleveland Park Bar & Grill, 3241 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-806-8940.
Mile High? Not quite—but you do have to head up to the roof deck of this sports-crazy bar to find other Denver fans. Jon, the bartender and a personal Broncos backer, pours shots when Denver scores. Otherwise, enjoy specials on Miller Lite. The Big Cup, a 20-ounce plastic souvenir mug, is just $5.75 during games.
Closest Metro stop: Cleveland Park.
Miami Dolphins: Glory Days Grill , 3059 Nutley St., Fairfax; 703-204-0900.
Lonnie Lazear, the managing partner of Glory Days Fairfax, is (1) from Miami and (2) wants to watch the Dolphins with you. “I try to wrangle all the people I can to be on my side,” he says. So far, he’s doing a pretty good job. The bar draws a solid, if small, base of Phins fans each week. Plus—$5 appetizers during Monday Night Football.
Closest Metro stop: Vienna.
Cleveland Browns: Lucky Bar, 1221 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-331-3733.
Browns backers took over this Dupont bar about three years ago. Now Lucky Bar does Sunday specials only during Cleveland games ($2.50 Bud Lights, $10 pitchers; $3 Yuenglings, $12 pitchers). Go to find the classic Browns spirit: Win or lose, these fans will support their team.
Not near Dupont? Check out Neighbors Restaurant (262 Cedar Lane, SE; 703-698-8010), which also draws dozens of Browns supporters each week.
Closest Metro stops: Lucky Bar—Dupont Circle, Farragut North; Neighbors—Dunn Loring, Vienna
San Diego Chargers: TBA.
Bolts message boards across the Internet teem with posts from DC-based San Diego fans looking for a team bar, but no one has stepped up to the plate—until now. Dave, an intrepid fan now living in Washington, wants to choose a bar and make it the Chargers' own. E-mail him at dcchargersfan AT hotmail.com if you're interested.
Got even more suggestions? Leave them in the comments for us, and we'll keep updating this post all season long!
