Great place great beer prices large lot next to it for outside partying not sure that's all the time. The air was cold for a over packed bar even upstairs! Just a cool place with variety of people.

Years ago, this was my favorite happy hour haunt when I lived in DC. Not much has changed. It's still a fun place with two for one cocktails at happy. There is no grill anymore, however.

Not sure why this bar has such a reputation, perhaps if we attended on show tunes night or something else it would have been a different experience? There was not a good atmosphere. When checking into our hotel front desk recommended Jrs as a nearby...More

Amazing staff and amazing clientele. Especially on the night they sponsor show tunes (Monday). Hit em up whether you're a local or out of towner and you won't be sorry!

Not only are the drinks HUGELY overpriced but trying to get one is akin to winning the Powerball while getting struck by lightning during a shark attack. They spend all their time staring at their phones and when you do get their attention the looks...More

It' s a great place to sip an ice-cold beer and exchange glances with other friends of Dorothy. The music is good, non-repetitive and sure to entice you. Not as diverse as the JR's in Houston, but very welcoming to all.
