We always welcome new Shake Shacks to the city, but we were particularly happy about this one opening right outside Nats Park. While having one in the actual stadium is great in theory, waiting in the line is similar to being in a port-a-potty line on day three of Burning Man. Excruciating, but so satisfying in the end. Now you can get the satisfaction without missing four innings of the game. Pull the veteran-move and get your fix before heading into the park. We also recommend heading here after a night of bar hopping around Tingey Street.

Don’t just hit Bluejacket before a Nats game - the Navy Yard brewery is a great spot for a group hang and even a casual date.
The Brig has your typical beer garden brats, picnic tables, and drinks, but also live music on Saturdays.
Top of the Yard
Weirdly, one of the best views of Nats stadium is from the rooftop bar at the Navy Yard Hampton Inn. Take advantage next time you didn’t get tickets.

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.
Bobby’s Burger Palace
For burgers in Foggy Bottom, we like Bobby’s. It works for a casual weeknight dinner or a Sunday-morning hangover cure.
