Venue Info

Named after a colonial tavern that once stood in Old City, Harp & Crown is set in an antique-filled space with mismatched furniture, tufted leather sofas, and vintage chandeliers. The rustic look belies the contemporary menu: a smart mix of small plates, pizzas, and vegetable dishes that range from lamb meatballs and smoked octopus to Amish chicken and faro pasta. Don't just come for the food, though: the downstairs bar, Elbow Lane, offers a 'members club' feel and boasts a surprisingly stately two-lane bowling alley. Yes, a bowling alley. The take on the gin and tonic here, made with lavender gin and infused with botanicals, sure beats the hell out of whatever cheap beer you'd be sipping at a typical bowling alley.
