The pre-Caps powerhouse is serving 10 drafts (from hometown Rockin' Red Ale to Starhills Northern Lights IPA) and pre-game bites (like chipotle BBQ'd tilapia tacos), PLUS rocking a sprawling view of the Verizon Center. Get there at the right time and you'll find yourself at a personal tap table booth where you can pour your own brews.

2. Penn Social 801 E Street NW, Washington, DC, DC 20004 (Penn Quarter)

There is always something going on at Penn Social, a two-level warehouse barcade and club with 3 full bars featuring over 30 drafts collectively. Beyond the skee-ball, hoops, foosball, giant Jenga and Connect 4, and happy hour it features 7 days a week, there is trivia on Tuesday, and music on Friday and Saturday nights. On weekends expect the downstairs to feel more like a dance club and less like a hip hangout for big groups of friends. It also have some greasy bar bites like nachos, wings, quesadillas, and pretzels with queso to help soak up the alcohol.
