If you’ve never said you hate Metro, it’s because you’ve never ridden it. But we promise WMATA won’t piss you off at Metrobar, an outdoor spot in Brentwood. The bar has loads of picnic tables, covered patio furniture and high top tables, but the real star of the show is the refurbished 5000-series Metro car that sits in the middle of the space. Grab a drink, play endless giant games like Jenga, and have a laid back evening with the squad. And if you get hungry, they have a rotation of food trucks that come through. The one downside here is the hours can get a little tight, as it is often closed for private events, so make sure to check the schedule before you head over.
