open table

The best way to do Churchkey is to come with only one or two other people and get a table in the back. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t come with a larger group, too - just be prepared to stand. The beer list is one of the longest around, which means it definitely has options for your friend who brings up “saison” in casual conversation. There’s also a food menu with flatbreads, pasta, and other things you’ll probably want after a few drinks.

Bar Pilar review image
Bar Pilar

A classic that can be used for dates or heavy drinking. Maybe even at the same time. The food’s great too.

Estadio review image

Estadio’s tapas will be familiar if you’re used to eating Spanish food, but it will be better. Use Estadio to woo sources, dates, or anyone else.

Birch & Barley

When you want a good beer but don't want to sacrifice good food, head to Bitch & Barley in Logan Circle. It's the best of both worlds.
