Rocket Bar is a very cool concept and it's a great place for a low-key night. It's kind of reminiscent of those days in high school when you would hang out in your friend's basement playing pool, except this basement has everything from skee ball to pinball and you don't have to worry about making too much noise and waking up someone's parents. Cheers to re-living your youth!

Pros: Even those with a short attention span will have fun

I like my share of posh lounges but half the time when I go out I want something chill and casual. I like Rocket Bar for that purpose because it's close to neighborhood, not pretentious, the bartenders make pretty good (strong) drinks and there are a lot of games to play (darts, pool, skeeball, etc.). There's no cover as far I can remember and drinks aren't pricey either. For some it may be too casual especially if you're into the K St. kind of crowd but those who just want to gather with friends and make it a chill night, Rocket Bar hits the spot.

Pros: good for a "dive bar," fun games & pool, lots of space

A nice spot to grab a drink with friends after a Caps game. Kinda hidden between a restaurant rocket bar is in the basement of a building. The dark steps open up to an extensive bar area. An assortment of good beers and a friendly environment can easy spark a game of pool or shuffle board. The attendees are mixed of all ages and make for a fun time.

Pros: Short walk from Verizon Center,pool shuffle board

Cons: Wizards aren't very good

This place is right in the middle of the busy Gallery place area in DC. It is all basement, hidden if you don't pay attention, but this place has all sorts of recreation...darts, skeeball! and pool. I really liked it because it wasn't too crowded, but it eventually seemed to fill up. Nice place to talk and good ambiance. Drinks are like all places in DC...expensive.
