Longtime residents of the District probably know The Front Page for its weekend brunch, which has repeatedly been praised by the national media as one of the best in the country. This venerable DC favorite pulls out all the stops during the week, as well.
Located just a few steps from the Red Line, The Front Page is conveniently located for post-work drinks. The bar’s happy hour specials certainly don’t hurt, either — specials include $3 domestic drafts and $4 glasses of wine, plus discounts on specialty cocktails like the rye Old Fashioned or the house Mule. If you’re feeling a bit peckish, you can also sink your teeth into $5 appetizers from 4 to 8 p.m. If you’d rather stay for a full meal, you’ll find the menu includes regular specials on tacos, burgers, and steaks throughout the evening. You might even stick around for half-price drafts starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, or DJ nights on Fridays and Saturdays.
