Maddy’s Bar and Grille

Maddy’s Bar and Grille, websiteFacebookTwitter1726 Connecticut Ave. NW (near 20th & S), 202-483-2266, opens at 11a everyday, HH 4-7p (M-F) midnight-3a (Fri) 2p-2a (Sun), est. 2009 [YelpWaPoTripadvisor]

Maddy’s replaced Timberlake’s, an institution in the northern reaches of Dupont Circle (on Conn. between R & S streets), in late 2009. A fairly standard neighborhood spot, Maddy’s can get crowded around happy hour and during boxing fights, though it’s been empty the couple times I’ve been here late on the weekend. There are a decent amount of tables in the front, on the side opposite the sole, long bar and in the back, but when it gets crowded, the awkward half-wall/partition in the middle of the room requires you to squeeze through to get a drink at the bar. Went here for the Pacquio-Margarito fight in November 2010, very crowded but a great scene; good place to watch fights that isn’t a cavernous sports bar like Public Bar or Buffalo Billiards. Otherwise, haven’t had much reason to stop by despite living in the neighborhood and being a chill spot. The chalkboards above the bar listing the beers on draft, along with their prices, is a nice touch and would be something that other bars should replicate.
