Bouncers are the worst and manager is useless
Dec 2019
Bounces are so rude and disrespectful and managers does nothing about it and allows it. They will try to get you to give more money and state you haven't paid. Act like they are on a power trip. Waste of money.

Average bar with limited food
Oct 2017 • Friends
I was staying nearby and stopped by to watch a couple games on a Saturday afternoon with friends.

Service was a little slow and the food menu was very limited. There was about 8 things on menu. I don’t recommend this place if you are looking to get any type of food.

Late Night

My friends and I stopped in late Night on Saturday. Everyone was super nice and we had a great time. The music was great floor to floor. Drinks are pricey however. Had a great time though.

Only for sport

The place is fine for sports on the different screens but the food is not good unfortunately...
It would be great to reduce the menu and to have only fresh food.
Don't take the salmon burger.
But service is smiling and professional.

Awful...Just Awful!
Sep 2016 • Couples
After walking around Washington DC all day long doing the typical sightseeing things my husband and I decided to try and grab a bite to eat and have a few beers close to our hotel. It was about five minutes before this place opened so we decided we would just wait - it took them a few minutes after it was scheduled to be opened for someone to come down and unlock the doors and then when he did he said "we don't have a bartender yet but go on up someone should be there in a few minutes". 10 minutes later we walked out. I'm not going to lie, in that entire 10 minutes not a single person acknowledged that we were even there. Thankfully there was a place next-door that we walked right up, sat right down and got served.

Bachata on Sunday
Jul 2016 • Couples
This is a decent sized bar in the DuPont circle area. The DJ was playing a mix of salsa, bachata, kizomba, reggaeton, etc and the dance floor was packed. The servers at the bar were super friendly, and gave free water to the dancers... much appreciated.

The drawback of course is lack of free parking...

This bar has many positive reviews most likely from people that like this scene or do not know what quality and service are. This was my first time here, just looking for a place to watch sports and that became a mission. First floor no one paid attention to the new costumers looking for a table or a place at the bar. We waited for 10mins or so. Second floor, you don't see a sign or anything. There are sits, but after seating someone comes and says that it's only bottle service and you need to stand if you don't have a reservation to eat or drink. We say ok, we stand and order stuff. By the way.....fancy sports bar serving bottle service but their food is typical of any sports bar or a happy meal. We then realize that their is a rooftop. I suggest to go upstairs, then we are told that food is not allowed. We ask for suggestion and the bartender, she has no idea of anything of what's going and doesn't care. Not sure if people were pissed or whatever, but if people go through all this to watch sports and eat wings, then that's why their is no hope. But if you like to feel like this, go ahead. This is your place.
