32 "Bar Food" Restaurants in Washington DC.
Fainting Goat isn’t great, but you’ll end up here at some point. When the time comes, go heavy on the drinks and light on the food.
Lucky Buns in Adams Morgan is a versatile, open-late burger spot with unique toppings that’s perfect for when Jumbo Slice just won’t cut it.
Make Solly's your go-to for a casual beer around U Street, and definitely get involved with the Sloppy Mama's BBQ they serve.
Right off U Street, Takoda has a nice (but small) rooftop and some good bar food options. We like it for a day drinking session or even a casual date.
If you need a pre-game move before a show at the 9:30 Club, Satellite Room has your back. Try with a big group or a date.
There are a few floors to DC9, but we prefer the rooftop that has a good view of U Street.
Part basement dance floor, part casual bar, Cafe Saint-Ex comes in handy for nights out on 14th Street.
Head to American Ice Co. on V Street for some of the city's best nachos and a nice patio to eat them on.
Churchkey is a reliable spot around Logan Circle for good beer and some light bites. If you’re with a group, be prepared to stand.
There's a full dining room at Jack Rose, but we like this U Street Corridor spot more for the enclosed rooftop. Get a whiskey cocktail.
If you’re looking for a dance floor around U Street, try The Brixton. And head to the rooftop when you need a break.
Martin's is one of the oldest restaurants in Georgetown. And while the American/pub food is fine, you're really here for the history lesson.
Try Black Jack for a casual pre-going out group dinner on 14th Street. We endorse the bucket of fried chicken.
Calico has one of our favorite patios in Shaw, as well as cocktails in Capri Sun-style pouches and shareable small plates.
