Regional Food & Drink (RFD)

810 7th St
Washington, DC

It’s proximity to the Verizon Center helps a great deal but it’s really it’s Cheesecake Factory-like menu of beers that’s phenomonal. Has 25 taps and over 100 bottles. Good luck choosing.

Crystal City Sports Pub

529 23rd St
Arlington, VA 22202

If you’re looking for tv over-saturation, this is your place. Ambience leaves a little to be desired but the overwhelming amount of tv’s more than make up for it. Plus it has three levels so you might actually have some elbow room. Go straight to the 2nd floor.

Caddies On Cordell

4922 Cordell Ave
Bethesda, MD 20814

Spectacular atmosphere, great neighborhood and the tv’s in the booths upstairs make this place an automatic go to. Plus it’s around the corner from near-misses on this list such as Tommy Joe’s and BlackFinn.

The Ram’s Head

1773 Generals Highway
Annapolis, MD 21401

Their line of Fordham beers are tremendous plus they offer a pretty good selection overall. Bar space can be a little cramped but their basement bar called the Rathskeller in Savage is a must-watch destination for college football on Saturdays or NFL on Sundays.


8850 Stanford Boulevard
Columbia, MD 21045

Alright so it’s in the middle of an industrial park and next door to a University of Phoenix but that doesn’t mean it’s not best bar worthy. The waitresses are great looking and the tv’s are numerous. The high bar tables in the front area also give you some room to breathe and the place is enormous. The pool tables, air shuffleboard and darts provide solace if your team’s getting shelled.
