An amazing saloon. Great beer list. This is a bar in a city that has not lost the sense of what a bat should be. The owner is wonderful and thru his bar, helps local as well as international schools. The food is great and the place just relaxes you. You come the first time and you feel like family... More

Great burgers and pub food, good beer selection, clean, friendly and professional wait staff. I was there with a wine drinker and they only had 1 wine. So, four stars if you're looking for wine.

Decided to stop in this basement bar for a quick bite and a pint and we weren't disappointed. The beer selection was great, the food was decent and it had a chill atmosphere. The bartender was super friendly as well. I would definitely drop in again when I am back in the area.

When you enter this bar, you will immediately feel at home. Really great beer, and even boozy filled fruits! The best part about it is that it is one of the more affordable places in the District. If you're looking to have a fun time with your friends, this is a must visit in DC. This is a non profit... More

What a fun place for bar food and beer before a show at the Lincoln Theatre! And after they've paid their bills, they donate to school building projects in majority world countries.

Great bar in the middle of U St. No TV, delicious moonshine, and a mission behind their booze selling. Highly recommended.

My group of four stopped here before a concert at the Lincoln Theater which is just two doors down. The bar has a warm and inviting feeling inside. Very small and intimate atmosphere with a few posted 'rules.' No standing, No television, No cell phones. It was a nice change from some of the overcrowded and loud bar/restaurants. The bar... More

Great Bar!! Wonderful choice of good beers, and good place to drink with friends. Just a few blocks north of the hustle and bustle of the sites and trendy big city bars. Highly recommend!

comfy bar with good selection of beer. A no nonsense attitude which is cool but also a bit ridiculous. "We don't serve martinis" ?!
