The Codmother

Divey ambiance? Check. Delicious bar food? Check. Awesome name? Double check. The Codmother, one of Washington DCs most beloved dive bars, can get wild, edgy and a little sloppy on weekend nights, but in all the best sort of dive bar ways. Do like the locals do and grab a piece of chalk and scrawl your motto for the night on the walls, tables, or ceiling. While at the bar, try their famous fish and chips, served with a side of mashed peas, and wash it all down with some of the Codmother's infamous drink combinations.

The Saloon

This European-style beer hall is the newest addition from the owners of Saloun in Georgetown. The Saloon has become a popular hangout for locals and tourists. The downstairs is built like a beer hall, with wooden tables, chairs and booths. Upstairs is more spacious, with a loft for those who like to drink from a high perch. The crowd comes for the full selection of excellent Belgian beers.

Rí Rá Georgetown

Stepping through the doors of Ri Ra Georgetown is like teleporting to a pub in the heart of Ireland. Built in the style of 19th and 20th Century Irish pubs, Ri Ra Georgetown was constructed with salvaged material that was restored in and shipped from County Wicklow, Ireland. The care and thought that was put into the decoration of this cozy pub is evident when you walk in to the pub and are met with dark wood-paneled walls, unique antiques, beautiful Irish fixtures. Order a pint at the large Victorian bar, which comes from a pub in Summer Hill, Dublin, and settle into one of the low-lit corners of the pub. Be sure to explore the Whiskey Room upstairs, which offers one of the most extensive selections of Irish whiskey in the United States.
