“Bar at the Hampton Inn” sounds like the place a guy on a business trip to Toledo during his mid-life crisis would hang out, but hear us out. Top of the Yard actually has some really great views of the city. You can see directly into Nats Park, which means you can catch a few innings without having to sit behind a group of frat guys who pre-gamed a little too much at the Bullpen. Or you could come here on a non-game night and impress a date with the view of the Anacostia River instead. The food options are pretty limited (hot dogs, mozzarella sticks, and wings), but you can always grab something around Navy Yard post-drinks.

The Bullpen at Half Street Fairgrounds

The Bullpen does music, cheap drinks, and bar food starting two hours before every Nats game. Go with a big group, and play some cornhole.
