Expats and Washingtonians alike gather to watch soccer matches at this friendly dive pub. Saturday mornings are prime time to grab a pint and an English breakfast plate alongside English Premier League action. Any major international contest is likely to draw sizable crowds, so expect to come early for any big-ticket events. American leagues get their due here too, especially DC United and MLS, college football, and the NFL.
Cheap food and booze are two of the big selling points at this Detroit- and Chicago-themed haunt. A basic beer at this (cash-only) dive runs just a few bucks no matter what time you stop in, and it’s only $2 during happy hour. A couple dollars more buys a whiskey and beer combo, and the affordable “rail” drinks use quality booze like Cotton & Reed rum and Tito’s Vodka. Ivy and Coney’s food sticks to its regional roots with a menu of Midwestern-inspired dogs and sausages. Elbow room can be tight, so don’t count on getting seats for big groups.
