Washington, D.C. s Best Bars with Outdoor Seating

U Street/14th Street

Take your swachos (aka swine nachos, aka nachos topped with pulled pork) to the patio during happy hour, Monday–Friday from 5–7 PM, and enjoy $5 Narragansetts, $4 Astra cans and $6 Astra and a shot of rye. (917 V St. NW; 202-758-3562)

Barcelona
Tucked back from 14th St, the patio at Barcelona is a little garden oasis with reclaimed wood furniture and planters scattered throughout the space. It’s the perfect backdrop for tapas and sangria. (1622 14th St. NW; 202-588-5500)

El Centro
Order your margarita from one of two bars on the rooftop of Richard Sandoval’s taqueria. Come during happy hour for $5 margaritas, seasonal agua fresco and house wines. (1819 14th St. NW; 202-328-3131)  
Garden District
You’ll find beer and barbecue at this beer garden on the corner of 14th and S Street. The small patio gets crowded fast, so come early or miss out on the awesome food menu that includes all the fixings for your brisket sandwich (Read: fried pickles, hush puppies and Carolina coleslaw). (1801 14th St. NW)

Masa 14
With plenty of seating and a good indoor/outdoor flow, head to Masa 14’s rooftop for $5 cocktails and Latin-Asian small plates ranging from $4-6 during happy hour, Monday–Fridays, 5–7 PM. (1825 14th St., NW; 202-328-1414)

Marvin
Come right at 5 PM when Marvin’s rooftop opens lest you find yourself elbow to elbow with strangers as this place is always packed. Snag a seat at one of the two bars during happy hour before the masses arrive. (2007 14th St. NW; 202-797-7171)

Pearl Dive Oyster Palace
You know spring has arrived when the front bar windows open up to the patio. Get your oyster fix during happy hour with two-for-one bivalves and half-price draft beers. (1612 14th St. NW; 202-319-1612)

Vinoteca
The outdoor Plaza complete with bar, outdoor grill and bocce court needs to be on your list of springtime destinations. Sip on their spring cocktails and put your competitive bocce skills to the test. (1940 11th St. NW; 202-332-9463)
