Forget the safari tents on the walls. The real big game in this Dupont Circle bar are eligible men and women in their early twenties.

The Big Hunt is a low-lit, safari-themed, tiny little dive right off the Red Line. It features really cheap beer and bar food---.15 cent wings and $3 pints---and feels like a bar that belongs on H Street, rather than in the heart of Dupont Circle.

It caters to the jeans and t-shirt type crowd and is wholly unpretentious. It can be a little dirty though; the bathrooms are a mess, the stairs need some maintenance, and the crowd is on the young side and can get a bit rowdy. I saw a chick throw up on the third floor once and it wasn't pretty.

If you're a single girl though, this is a really good place to have a beer and talk to guys. It's also a good spot to have a happy hour with a bunch of friends.

In the summer, try to take over the third floor patio. It's a small space, but ideal for warm summer nights.

Pros: A dive, cheap drinks, fun decor

Cons: Bit of a meat market

I have been to The Big Hunt countless times and it has a special place in my heart. Surrounded by pretentious, trendy overpriced bars on Connecticut Ave, The Big Hunt is a haven. The decor is perfectly cheesy and the bartenders are a little surly, but fast.

If you want to go to a normal, good bar in Dupont Circle, The Big Hunt is the place for you. Check it out on a Tuesday for Wing Night. ($0.15/piece).

Editorial from

Just off the south end of Dupont Circle, The Big Hunt is a popular after-work standby; 27 beers on tap in addition to a digital juke box, pool tables and tiki torch decorated patio keep regulars coming back to catch the game or to partake…
