The Brixton

Unlike the line your cousin made you stand in at the Hirshhorn Infinity Mirrors exhibit, the wait to get into The Brixton actually goes by pretty quickly. And once you do get inside, you can choose between the casual bar downstairs, the dance floor on the next level, and the open air rooftop that looks over U Street. The crowd here leans younger, so just know that some people out there dancing to “Filthy” won’t know that Justin Timberlake used to have frosted tips.

El Rey

It gets crowded on the weekends, but El Rey is a reliable spot for after work drinks and Mexican food around U Street.

Colada Shop

The food at Colada Shop is just okay, but the space and location make it a good place for a quick meal around U Street.

Bar Pilar

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