Looking Glass Lounge
3634 Georgia Ave NW
The space might be designed with stained glass windows, but that's pretty much where the sophistication ends and the easygoing vibe begins. The beer and shot combos at this casual neighborhood pub draws in thirsty regulars for everything from bar trivia to patio drinking. There’s a full menu of creative and tasty bar food, too -- (heyyy, grilled shishito peppers) -- which you'll undoubtedly need, after a few of these.
