  • RianGreat cocktails and delicious food. Monday HH is amazing. This places fills up quickly so you can't always find a spot by the bar and waiting for a table can take a while.

  • Behrad B.Start off with the epic Catalan Fries made with chimichurri, romesco, cheese, and a fried egg!

    55555 by Behrad B.

  • Behrad B.We never pass on the opportunity to order a giant pretzel, and neither should you, especially one served with truffle cheese sauce & beer mustard!

    55555 by Behrad B.

  • Behrad B.They got some finger lickin' good Korean-style Chicken Wings, fried and tossed in a sweet and spicy Korean bbq sauce and served with radish, peanuts, cilantro, & kewpie mayo.

  • Abby FThe cocktails are so interesting and delicious! I think the Clover Club is my favorite. The fries are also just right.

    55555 by Daniel A

  • Lauren M.Great cocktails in a cool space

    55555 by Lauren M.

    55555 by Lindsay E

  • Kelsey GGreat spot for a quick brunch. Order the cheddar chive biscuits to start!

  • Kasia Khappy hour with $5 and $6 cocktails makes it one of the best places for a Monday night in the neighborhood

    55555 by Kasia K

  • Mike M.80's Old Fashioned. Definitely don't understand how they make it - but so good.

    55555 by Mike M.

  • Kate RReally cute little spot, great for date night. Low lighting, very reasonably priced food and good service. Wine also decently priced which is rare for US. Recommend the mussels!

  • Terence R.Went there maybe for the last time. 😞 The two recent times I've been here the food had been subpar and the drinks still aren't being prepared as they use to be. Sigh.

  • Ben R.Great cocktails.

    55555 by Ben R.

  • Behrad B.Amazing happy hour where you can get fantastic cocktails, like a Sazerac, for just $5!

    55555 by Behrad B.

  • Terence R.The new bartenders changed the original recipes -- the reason I loved this bar. If you order a cocktail ask for less ice, it kinda taste like the original.

    55555 by Terence R.

  • Kayla A.POUTINE. You know you want egg on those fries.

    55555 by Kayla A.

  • Chris M.Suffering bastard on tap

    55555 by Chris M.

  • Campbell BirdSolid brunch. Get the poutine. Chicken and waffles seems overpriced.

    55555 by Campbell Bird

  • Andrew D.Awesome selection if whiskey cocktails with multiple versions of an old fashioned on the menu! Each interesting and worth it! Happy hour is oddly short, but lasts all night on Mondays!

    55555 by Andrew D.

  • Ezra MechCheap standard cocktails are actually amazing, great burger, not fussy and nice staff. Overpriced tuna BLT.

    55555 by Ezra Mech

    55555 by Marc Kevin H.

  • Washington PostCritic Tom Sietsema's first bite: Get the quartet of steamed shrimp/pork belly dumplings for $6. A Sazerac fan probably will do a double-take when he spots the classic being poured for $8.

    55555 by Washington Post

    55555 by Ashley N.

    55555 by Scott

  • Zeke S.Like sushi in a glass, but with booze, the Jiro Dreams of Sidebar is a combo of housemade wasabi syrup, ginger, Shochu, and rice wine vinegar that's garnished w/ nori.

    55555 by Zeke S.

    55555 by Craig C.
