Zeba Bar

This neighborhood bar in Columbia Heights is popping almost every night of the week. People who live nearby swing through after work for an evening drink and hookah. Twinkle lights line the ivy on the small covered patio where you can pull up a seat for  most of the year. There are three levels inside, though only the first floor bar is guaranteed to be open every night. Happy Hour, which runs from 5-8pm, is your best bet, but get there early if you want a seat at the small bar because it gets packed quickly.
