Bullfeathers

Bullfeathers

This Washington, D.C., bar has been serving the members of the House of Representatives and all their friends since 1980. Tasty burgers and friendly service make this a popular neighborhood bar, as well as an approved destination for hungry politicians looking for a quick power lunch. The tavern's name comes from President Theodore Roosevelt, the nation's 26th Commander-in-Chief and one of America's most colorful politicians. When faced with frustrations or absurd situations, Roosevelt would exclaim "Bullfeathers!" More familiar bull-related profanities were unacceptable in proper company, he said. This legendary Washington, D.C., bar's stated goal is to "take some of the edge off, take some of the ‘Bullfeathers' out of life and put a little more fun back in." A 40-foot bar hosts a bargain happy hour from 5-8pm nightly.
