Bars with Purse Hooks in Washington, D.C.

Bars with Purse Hooks in Washington, D.C.

It's sometimes hard enough to find enough room to order a drink at the bar, nevermind trying to do it while shouldering a laptop and/or purse. Thankfully, there are plenty of bars with purse hooks in D.C., so you can easily stash your stuff while imbibing. Here's where we recommend whetting your whistle when you're toting a ton. (Have a suggestion of a bar to add? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.)

Black Jack: Pizza, bocce, and the Maple Derby cocktail — enough said (1612 14th St. NW; 202-986-5225).

Local 16: Enjoy the breezy roofdeck and draft beer with two free hands (1602 U St. NW; 202-265-2828).

Daikaya: Don’t let your bag weigh you down — the upstairs izakaya features plenty of hooks around the center bar so that you can focus on more important things, like Japanese whiskey (705 6th Street NW; 202-589-1600).

The Red Derby: It may be a dive, but the Derby wants you to enjoy that canned beer unencumbered (3718 14th Street NW; 202-291-5000).

Churchkey: WIth 555 varieties of beer, this hops heaven can get packed — but stowing your stuff on a nearby hook allows for some breathing room (1337 14th Street NW; 202-567-2576).

Cork Wine Bar: Save your bag from the floor and sidle up to the bar for generous pours and ah-may-zing small plates (1720 14th Street NW; 202-265-2675).

Science Club: The walkway is narrow next to the main floor’s bar — but purse hooks clear the way for enjoying beer specials and vegan fare (1136 19th Street NW; 202-775-0747).

Old Ebbitt Grill: We’d expect nothing less than a civilized way to manage your things at this classy Washington establishment, which calls for red wine or something on the rocks (675 15th St. NW; 202-347-4800).

Marvin: No need to lug your stuff around this Belgium-meets-American South bistro; hang your things while downing beer with steak frites (2007 14th Street NW; 202-797-7171).

Policy: Don’t try to dance with purse in hand; take advantage of Policy’s excellent soundtrack while holding an absinthe cocktail instead (1904 14th Street NW; 202-387-7654).

Granville Moore’s: Moules, frites, and Belgian beer, oh my! (1238 H Street NE; 202-399-2546)

J. Paul’s: Warm baked pretzels beat bread baskets any day — and $4 craft drafts during happy hour make it worth a stop at the bar (3218 M St. NW; 202-333-3450).

Graffiato: While you might have trouble deciding between the novel Prosecco on draft, aged cocktails, and housemade sodas, you won’t have a hard time finding space for your things (707 6th Street NW; 202-289-3600).

Mintwood Place: Vintage faucet fixtures serve as bag hooks under the rustic bar at this lauded Adams Morgan eatery, where you can sip on cocktails named for Woodrow Wilson and Marilyn Monroe (1813 Columbia Rd NW; 202-234-6732).

Tabard Inn: The lounge at this quiet can get packed at peak hours, but don’t overlook the small bar inside — hooks keep your things out of the way and the bar staff is well-schooled in cocktails and spirits (1739 N St. NW; 202-331-8528).
