Bourbon on 18th Street has $3 draft (we're talking Bells, Abita, Allagash, and others) and supposedly some good bourbon happy hour specials, they play Portishead in the bar, and they have homemade veggie, ostrich, bison, or crab cake burgers with smoked gouda and bourbon BBQ sauce, waffle, curly, or shoestring fries, bourbon baked beans or sweet potato chips, all at very reasonable prices. Yum. (Although the veggie burger could use some rice, barley, or beans to give it some more structure.) A neighborhood bar for foodies.
They have another location in Glover Park as well. Go, eat, drink and be merry.
