Sports Bar & So Much More....


Recommended Posts

I recently visited the Capitol Lounge in DC. Here's what I thought:

There's something about this place that makes it feel perfectly situated for Capitol Hill -- and we mean that in a good way. Perhaps it's the bar's ability to be many things to many different people. It's bipartisan -- make that dual-partisan -- with one area full of Republican wall hangings, such as a vintage Nixon poster, and another area featuring the likes of LBJ, Kennedy and other Democratic icons. The downstairs features a cigar bar while the upstairs has two bars, pool tables and enough TVs to appease nearly every sports fan.


The bar is a haven for DC soccer fans, and with the international crowd the nation's capital draws, that can be a large constituency. Even when soccer fans aren't packing the place, the stream of football club scarves hanging behind the main bar demonstrates its true colors.


In addition to a do-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar and one of the more eclectic jukeboxes in town, Capitol Lounge has also earned a reputation for having a standout Sunday brunch.

Let me know what you guys think.....
