This cash-only dive modeled after a living room tends to get sweaty. You can blame that on a free jukebox full of long forgotten 1950s soul songs and raucus weekend parties. If you haven’t already guessed it, this place is quirky. A Natty Boh/shot special will give you the courage to ask someone to dance. Things kick off later, so this is a great spot for your final destination for the night.
Single in DC? Don’t despair. This city can seem a little big and scary, but there are tons of people out there waiting to make friends (and a hell of a lot of singles too). Washington’s inhabitants tend to adopt a ‘work hard, play hard’ ethic, and its lead to some seriously great bars popping up (and staying) all over the city.
Obviously, the neighborhood favorites for partying remain the center of it all – H Street, U Street and Adams Morgan, to name a few – where you’ll find plenty of places that’ll welcome you with open arms. Think dive bars with cheap drinks, sultry cocktail bars with a sexy vibe, and when it gets late, spots to have a dance at too. Here are the best singles bars in DC.
