Drinks & Nightlife
If my friends, family, or clients come to DC, these are places I take them based on their preferences:
POV is the best place for a selfie! It has the best views! Drinks are expensive but worth it but have one drink, see the sights, get your photos and move on! It pairs well with eating at Old Ebbitt Grille, DC’s oldest saloon and a place across from the White House. Walk into Old Ebbitt Grille, which is close by, request a reservation, they will call you when your table is ready, and go wait with a drink and a selfie at POV. By the time your drink is finished your table at Old Ebbitt will be ready. I do not recommend eating at POV which I find over priced and so-so. The drinks at POV are worth every penny though.

Best local dive bar. This is close to my house. Turn right out of the house, turn left one 15, turn right on Penn. Trusty’s has excellent burgers and a game night. It looks like an old gas station inside with outdoor seating upstairs in the summer. Dive bar means that is very casual, gritty but cool.

Food scene
Best shareable small plates, tapas style that is budget conscious and does not skip on taste. It has the best happy hour and an all you can eat “Balkan experience” for $35 without drinking and $50 with drinks. It is within walking distance of my house near 8th & G SE.
