The Tombs: great name for a college bar, especially around Halloween.

But this time, rather than go with a scary movie, take a look at funny: best college bar, take a look at the best and funniest film of the year, THE POOL BOYS!

Tomb??s is the quintessential college bar. Just a block off of Georgetown??s campus, Tomb??s knows who its clientele and serves up everything right. Alums groping at nostalgia, parents wondering what exactly they are sending their 18-year-olds off to, and the raucous college set guarding hollowed ground, as if they owned the place ?? which they do. Just take a look at the plaques on the wall behind the door filled with lists of names of proud seniors who completed the monumental ??99 Days? ?? visiting the bar each day, every day, for the last 99 days before graduation. Congratulations, this is the real world. Until then, enjoy cheap pitchers of Busch Lite and Blue Moon, and small plate ??study snacks? for under $5, like salads, soups, and chicken fingers. A liquid education. And for those rowing aficionados, watch for oars that garnish the walls like so many painted wooden sprigs of parsley.

This place is largely a hangout for Georgetown students, and tends to be crowded most nights. The food is good, and the prices are reasonable. We ended up having a drink here, before dinner at 1789, upstairs, and the atmosphere was fun.

If you want to get a feal for Georgetown University, take a tour then have a meal at The Tombs. it is a block from the main gates, owned by the Clydes Restaurant group that has a lot of good places in the dc area. in the evenings there will be a line of 21 year old GU students trying to get in so get there at dinner time or earlier.
sunday's they open early for the church crowd and their brunch is excellent.

it is below street level and if full of GU and rowing paraphenalia. a unique place and a must visit if you are in the area.

food is better than your avg college hang out owing to getting to share some of the fresh food and chefs with its sister 5 star world class restaurant 1789 upstairs but still cheap enough for students to eat and drink there.
