Great Bars 2011: Wonderland Ballroom

Once the exclusive hangout of in-the-know cool kids, this Columbia Heights corner bar now draws a wider mix—for better or for worse. What brings the crowds? Good DJs spinning dance tunes from the ’80s and ’90s, an interesting selection of beers—including bottles of the hard-to-find Belgian brew Delirium Tremens—a quirky dive-bar atmosphere, and a large beer-garden-style patio that’s strung with Christmas lights.
