D.C.'s Longest Happy Hour at the Bottom Line

D.C.'s Longest Happy Hour at the Bottom Line

There’s at least one bar in D.C. that doesn’t believe happy hour should be only for the nine-to-fivers. That people who have to rush home to kids or pets or those with different hours should not be denied the joyful experience of inexpensive post-work drinking.

The Bottom Line boasts what they claim is the “longest happy hour in the District,” and it’d be hard to find any other place that comes close. Drink specials at the Farragut Square bar (on I Street between 17th and 18th) begin at 4 PM, and the cheap drinks don’t stop flowing until the last customer is out the door (1:30 AM Monday–Friday and 2:30 AM Saturday–Sunday).

The specials rotate every day of the week, but you can always expect to find a domestic beer and rail drinks for around $3, plus a discounted quality draft and ever-changing cheap appetizers. So basically, everything you need.

Miller Lite fans should hit the happy house on Fridays: from 4-7 PM the domestic bottles cost just a buck. For the next two hours, they cost $2, then $2.50 from 9 PM–midnight. If you make it past midnight, you’re in luck, because the price falls again, back to $1 per bottle, until close.

The bar itself is a throwback, with dark wood panels and mirrors evoking a 1950s sensibility. Visitors follow a dim staircase to get to the cavernous underground space, with the main bar stretching nearly 50 feet straight back. Old school pool table light fixtures hang low throughout, giving off a faint glow that allows the room to stay perpetually dark. At the Bottom Line, it’s easy to lose track of time, which is perfect, because once inside, you never have to worry about the clock.
