We Rounded Up All 119 BYOB Restaurants in DC (Because We Love You)

Our BYOB scene leaves something to be desired when compared to a city like Philadelphia, where BYOBs abound. However, there are still quite a few options if you’re looking to pop open a special bottle during a date night or, let’s be real, drink more booze for less money. Here are 119 spots where you can bring your own bottle, and some even have free corkage! Let the drinking commence...

(Note: all corkage fees are per 750 mL bottle, and affect wine only unless otherwise specified.)
