If you’re looking for a place to drink in Georgetown that isn’t full of Hoya Saxa bros, The Sovereign is your spot. It’s a Belgian pub with medieval-style chandeliers, long wooden tables, and a general Game of Thrones feel. The beer list is massive, with around 50 Belgian options on draft and hundreds of other bottles available. Food options like charcuterie, mussels, and frites are all ideal for sharing with one other person or a group. Post up at one of the high-top tables, and move to a booth if you decide you want a full meal.

Jack Rose Dining Saloon
There's a full dining room at Jack Rose, but we like this U Street Corridor spot more for the enclosed rooftop. Get a whiskey cocktail.
There are a few floors to DC9, but we prefer the rooftop that has a good view of U Street.
Part basement dance floor, part casual bar, Cafe Saint-Ex comes in handy for nights out on 14th Street.
