What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Irish Pub or Irish Snub?
Rock your sham like an elegant headdress with today's Groupon for Irish pubbery and grubbery. For $15, you get $30 worth of budget-friendly booze and bold bar food at Duffy's Irish Restaurant & Pub. Nestled between two row houses on Vermont Avenue right across the street from the 9:30 Club, this dive bar "feels more like a friend's tricked-out garage than an insta-pub," according to Playboy. The game room boasts a flat-screen TV, dartboards, Buck Hunter, pool tables, and foosball.
You can use your Groupon during Duffy's storied happy hour, when Yuengling, Shock Top, Miller Lite, and Coors Light flow like babbling $3 brooks from the taps, and 16-ounce PBR cans open with a satisfying $3 exhale. Bring your friends to share $10 pitchers of Coors Light and Miller Lite, or class it slightly up with $4 rail drinks Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. And if your week gets off to a really bad start, enjoy $2 cans all night on Mondays. Duffy's happy hour was selected the Best DC Happy Hour by Playboy's Nightlife Guide and runner-up for Washington City Paper's Best of DC.
Duffy's golden rivers of brew pair best with something fried golden and slathered in palate-pleasing sauces. Try the fish and chips ($13.95, or an $8.95 Monday and Friday special), corned beef and cabbage ($12.95, or $8.95 on Tuesdays), or any other munchie-satisfying item on the menu. Washington City Paper's readers called Duffy's buffalo wings ($5.95 a half dozen, $10.95 a dozen) Best Wings in DC two years in a row (2008 and 2009). Conveniently, you can also stave off any Sunday-morning hangovers you sustain at Duffy's with Duffy's all-you-can-eat brunch (from noon to 3 p.m., $10) of unlimited eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and comforting shepherd's pie washed down with $4 mimosas and Bloody Marys.

About Duffy’s Irish Pub
Duffy’s Irish Pub specializes in making award-winning chicken wings, voted the city's best in 2017 by readers of Washington City Paper as well as the "Best Chicken Wings in the U.S." by Food and Wine Magazine. The restaurant offers a variety of seven different wing types, from buffalo style to the award winning Chesapeake Bay wings, using their signature wing sauce which has been featured in the Washington Post. Additionally, this spot provides customers with a range of pub, grass-fed, and black-bean burger patty options, such as the Monster Burger that earns its name by piling bacon, grilled onions, and a half-pound burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches. It also crafts unique Bloody Mary cocktails that include Duffy's special wing sauce.
Along with the menu of daily grub, Duffy's supplies discounted drinks and discount appetizers for weekday happy hours and hosts brain-teasing pub trivia challenges on Tuesday nights. It hangs 15 flat-screen TVs throughout the bar, usually tuned to the latest games such as the Texas Exes Football and Georgetown Basketball, and serves as an official watch bar of DC United. In addition to front-of-the-house entertainment, Duffy's accommodates private parties in a back room equipped with more flat-screens, darts, and a phone app-controlled jukebox.
