Sports bar meets German beer garden at this popular indoor-outdoor destination just one block from the Courthouse Metro station. Snack on a Bavarian pretzel or a Reuben roll (that’s an eggroll with corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss and Thousand Island dressing), or go all in with a sausage platter or schnitzel while sampling a flight of four draft brews. You’ll find everything from Monday Night Football to club team soccer on the TVs, and rumor has it the bartenders will change the station if your game of choice isn’t playing near your table. In fact, there’s something special happening every night of the week, from half-price bottled wines on Wednesdays to tap takeovers on Thursdays and discounted whiskey flights on Fridays.
