Redline First Floor Entrance

Redline First Floor Entrance

Redline, websiteFacebookTwitter,  707 G St. NW, opens at 11a everyday except Sun. (10a), HH 4-7p M-F, Distance to Verizon Center: 400 feet (Brought to you by DC Sports Nexus), est. 2010 [Post, WCPZagatIn a DC MinuteYelp]

Overlooking the Verizon Center, Redline satisfies those looking for both a sports bar and a loungey atmosphere. Dubbed a “Gastrolounge/Bar,” this is a solid spot to grab very good food and drinks before or after a game or concert, or if you’re just in the neighborhood. Unlike most of the neighboring establishments, Redline’s second-floor location and large windows provide good views of the throngs below and let in lots of light during the day. The antithesis of Rocket Bar, let us count the ways…

Main Dining Area with Booths

Main Dining Area with Booths

Three main areas make up this second-floor establishment that features much-coveted exposed brick walls: a dining area of tabletops and booths (with table taps-more details below); a cozy bar area to the right of the steps at the entrance (quite popular for Caps fans before games); and another larger bar area beyond the dining room.

Some of Redline's ~50 TVs

Around 50 TVs are posted throughout Redline, allowing people to watch their favorite games from any angle. A huge 11-foot projection screen and a sports news/scores ticker are prominent and can be checked from a number of tabletops and booths throughout the bar.

Most unique are the aforementioned built-in beer taps installed at several booths in the dining area allowing patrons to self-serve their brew of choice. Redline is only one of two spots in town to feature such table taps (Meridian Pint is the other). But, amateur bartenders, Beware! It’s not as easy as it looks and the electronic meter on the tap tracks how many ounces you pour, so charges can rack up quickly. Also, if multiple booths are open, peruse the beer selections at each station as  some tables have more adventurous beers than others. So, match your mood from Bud Light to Sam Adams.

Pouring own beer! Also, some of the great food served.

Barred in DC was recently invited by Redline to enjoy drinks and the great, inventive food (gator and a kobe beef hot dog are on the menu) and also previewed its new buffet brunch, which offers an immensely impressive spread from 10a-4p on Sundays ($25 + $10 for bottomless mimosas). As for the drinks, a solid 20+ $6-7 bottle beer list and a serviceable draft list are accompanied by a host of wines, shooters, and cocktails.

Unlike most sports bars, bottle service is available here and a DJ spins tunes weekend nights. In other words, those looking for a traditional sports bar with tons of sports paraphernalia and game broadcast sound routinely on and audible would probably prefer another place. Folks who want a nicer atmosphere or want to enjoy exceptional, not your average, “bar food” and drinks with others non-fanatics should check out Redline.

Barred in DC Rating: 4/5

The Big Hunt

The Big Hunt – one of the the PoPville commentariat’s favorite bars

One of the can’t miss blogs for anyone who lives in DC is PoPville (formerly known as Prince of Petworth). If you follow Barred in DC on Twitter, you know that bar news often is first broken or broadcast by the Prince, but he has also linked to my posts and I am a proud owner of a PoPville t-shirt thanks to my several tips in pre-Barred in DC days.

Last week’s PoPville Friday Question of the Day asked – What is your Favorite Bar in the District? I thought I’d compile the most popular picks into a post; I’ve been to nearly all of them and they’re all worth checking out. Do keep in mind that PoPville’s commentariat skews slightly older, DC hipstery  and wouldn’t get caught dead in spots like Sign of the Whale or Lotus Lounge. No Georgetown or Foggy Bottom bars were nominated (no McFadden’s; shocking, I know).

Red Derby took the well-deserved top spot; this 2-story dive on the north edge of Columbia Heights is cash-only and serves its beer in cans only.  There are lots of divey and neighborhood spots; you can dance the night away at Little Miss Whiskey’s and Wonderland. All the spots that received 3+ votes are listed below; ones that Barred in DC has not yet visited are italicized.

Most Popular PoPville Bars

1. Red Derby (Columbia Heights)

2. Boundary Stone (Bloomingdale)
2. The Big Hunt (Dupont)
2. Looking Glass Lounge (Petworth)

5. The Raven (Mt. Pleasant)
5. Right Proper Brewing Company (Shaw)
5. Meridian Pint (Columbia Heights)

8. Showtime Lounge (Bloomingdale)
8. Bravo Bar (Columbia Heights)
8. The Passenger (Shaw)
8. The Pug (H Street)
8. Little Miss Whiskey’s (H Street)
8. Breadsoda (Glover Park)

14. The Gin Joint (Woodley Park)
14. Wonderland Ballroom (Columbia Heights)
14. Stan’s (Downtown)
14. Chez Billy (Petworth)

Other spots receiving multiple nods include places in Dupont (Bar Charley, Dito’s Bar, Townhouse Tavern), U Street/Logan (Bar Pilar, The Gibson, Satellite Room, ChurchKey), Adams Morgan (Smoke and Barrel, Madam’s Organ, Black Squirrel, Millie & Al’s), Petworth (DC Reynolds), Downtown (Post Pub), & H Street (The Queen Vic),

Glover’s Pepper Sauce

Known for being a haven for NYC sports fans, 51st State Tavern (2512 L St. NW; Penn & 25th) might not be where you expect one of DC’s newest local food purveyors to showcase its products. But showing how far we’ve come in valuing local and new things, the Foggy Bottom spot will be hosting a Glover’s Pepper Sauce happy hour this Friday, April 11, 2014 from 5-7p.

Featured at the HH, held upstairs, are discounted sliders and wings made with one of the several peppers sauces produced by Glover’s (which are produced in the local incubator Union Kitchen, not to be confused with Union Market, I think), along with 51st State’s normal happy hour specials, which include $3.50 Bud Light drafts, $3.75 domestic longneck bottles, $3.75 51st Amber drafts, $4 Yuengling drafts & rails, $5 house wines, & $2 off specialty cocktails. The creator of the sauce, Jamie Glover, will be present handing out free samples of Glover’s flavors and answering questions about the sauces (one sample question: what is up with the suitcase on the label?)

[4/11 Update]

The chef behind Glover’s Pepper Sauce, Jamie Glover, added some details as a comment:

Chef Jamie here! I look forward to tasting out my 3 sauces and spicy vinegar with all our fans. You will get a discount code for our online store when you pop by. I am giving away Glover’s Wings and Sliders for you to taste our original 5 pepper blend. My sauces are great to cook with, not too hot and fun to use in lots of different food. 51st State offers them for customers to put them on their whole menu.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: new places to eat and drink open their doors this week on 14th Street NW. I’ve compiled mini-previews  of these spots-Compass Rose and Red Light, which couldn’t be more dissimilar from one another-are certainly worthwhile and unique additions to the rapidly changing hood.

Compass Rose pre-opening

Compass Rose pre-opening

Compass Rose Bar & Kitchen (Twitter, Facebook) – 1346 T St. NW - opens to invite only Saturday April 12th, opens to public Wednesday April 16th - Nearly a year after obtaining its liquor license, this cozy street foods neighborhood spot finally opens in a stunningly decorated space a few doors down from Cafe St. Ex. Expect an international menu and late hours. Ownership affiliated with neighborhood joints on the Hill including Star & Shamrock and Trusty’s (the main operators, inspired by travels/life abroad, live upstairs) (PoPville, Eater, WaPo)

Red Light pre-opening from across 14th Street

Red Light pre-opening from across 14th Street

Red Light (website, Twitter, Facebook)1401 R St. NW - opens Saturday April 12th  (limited hours/menu until April 27th)- replacing the little-visited Bar di Bari at 14th and R, this 27-seat spot seeks to fit a unique niche as a dessert and cocktails spot for the post-dinner and late-night crowd. The name and the decor (less so) evoke the street’s past as a ladies-of-the-night destination (“burlesque cocktails” are currently on the menu). Along with the desserts (some are boozy and apparently can only be served to guests of age), there will be bottled and $10 cocktails on tap (looking forward to the Sazerac), a $7 Prosecco on tap, and a 44-seat patio in warmer months (perhaps tented/warmed) with a slushie station. The nightly happy hour (both early and late) should be popular. Will be open at 4p on weekdays, noon on weekends and close late on weekends. Owner also behind the nearby Drafting Table.

The bar at Bar Charley

The bar at Bar Charley

Barred in DC has learned that Bar Charley, the six-month old spot in north Dupont, has reached a settlement agreement with neighbors, allowing it to serve alcohol two hours later each night. As a result, the establishment can stay open until 1a on weekday nights, 2a on weekends; doors will close to new patrons 30 minutes before that.

In exchange for the dropping of the protest (which was discussed earlier here), Bar Charley has agreed to the hours just mentioned (it had been seeking full hours-2a/3a), sound mitigation, trash collection procedures, offering full menu (kitchen must be open 90 minutes before closing), keeping tables in dining space until close, and other restrictions intended to placate neighbors who want it to prevent from turning into a full-fledged bar  rather than a restaurant.

ABRA still has to approve the settlement, which should take place shortly, before Bar Charley can be open past midnight for the first time ever. Soon, it will be joined by a promising whiskey-focused joint across the street, Rebellion (which can be open until 2a/3a if it keeps the liquor license as the previous tenant, Mum Mumtogether with the nearby Jack Rose, the area will soon have a number of spots for adults to enjoy.

3/19 PM Edit: The settlement agreement can be read here: Settlement Agreement Bar Charley ANC 2B et al.
This post has been revised to reflect the provisions of the settlement agreement.

The snow gods granted the wish of Irish-wannabes in DC-OPM closed the government today, on St. Patrick’s Day. Our social media overlord have thus deemed this Snow Patrick’s Day (clever), and so I’ve compiled this list of DC spots open during the day for day-drinking, some of which already we’re going to be open for St. Paddy’s Day festivities (Irish bars are highlighted in green).

Young lady doing push-ups randomly at Jack Rose’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebration in 2013

Although bars are guaranteed to be amateur night and a cluster, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are still usually good times. As March 17th is on a Monday this year, many bars/people will actually celebrate on the Saturday before, but pubs will nevertheless be jam-packed on the actual holiday itself.

To help you plan your green-themed celebration, I’ve listed any events at bars, both Irish and non-Gaelic, that have been announced, continually updating as places announce their events and paid journalists/bloggers post their round-ups. [3/13 Edit: Roundups from Post, Washingtonian, DC After Five]

There is no cover unless otherwise stated (covers aren’t the worst thing, they lessen the crowds slightly). I’ve also highlighted (in green, of course) those bars who are actually having events on St. Paddy’s Day itself (in addition to Saturday or other days)
