DC’s a town of many watering holes. From the venerable Old Ebbitt to the brand new Bar Louie, and the many places betwixt the two, DC is definitely a town that can get its drink on. Esquire’s Best Bars list was sent to me by the Captain of the Austin Metblog, and I have to say I’m disappointed that DC’s selections of The Tune Inn and Hawk’n’Dove remain the same as when last we saw it eighteen months ago. How great bars like The Big Hunt, Fox and Hounds, RFD and its myriad beer taps, Brickskellar and its Guinness World Record, not to mention the venerable Saint-Ex, or Black and Red, stay off these lists is a mystery to me.
Though, come to think of it, if that keeps all the tools who read Esquire out of my bars…maybe that’s a price worth paying?
