Capitol Lounge

This locally famous bar burned in August 2005 but came back from the dead—bigger than ever. The political hotspot's collection of Nixon memorabilia still adorn the walls and new flat-screen TVs delight sports fans who come to cheer their favorite professional soccer and college athletic teams. Monday through Friday, the bar boasts $2.50 amber/ice drafts, $3 Bud and Bud Light bottles and $3.50 rail drinks. The lounge is also home to some of the best bar food on Capitol Hill—from burgers and fries, to salads and pizza. Mondays offer half-price pizza, Tuesdays are home to 10¢ wings and Wednesdays offer 25¢ tacos.
