Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili and a round of mini golf. Discover sundry flights of fancy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Mexican fare, drinks, and games at H Street Country Club.
H Street Country Club sends all senses soaring with menus of bar nosh, drinks, and kicking Mexican cuisine, as well as an indoor mini-golf course and games. Before donning mini plaid caps and quipping poetic over the Lilliputian golf course ($7 per person), warm up with a starter of fried calamari ($10) or black-bean soup ($6). The steak tampiqueno soused in lime juice ($17) truncates hunger, while the sizzling fajitas put a satisfying snap, crackle, and tssss into the dining experience ($13+). Patrons can whet whistles with a water-slathered whistle or with one of seven margaritas ($7+) before hitting the tiny links with a sharp whistle, or award themselves the Pimm's Cup ($8)—a house libation bolstered by strawberries, cucumbers, and ginger ale—after victoriously returning from a challenging round with happily defeated friends and frenemies.
H Street Country Club
“A synthetic turf-covered love letter to Washington.” That’s what Fritz Hahn of the Washington Post had to say about H Street Country Club after visiting the nearly 7,000-square-foot bar at the heart of the Atlas District. Yet Hahn wasn’t talking about the eatery’s decadent food; he was commenting on the space's devilishly tricky indoor golf course. During each nine-hole outing—for adults 21+—putters encounter the Lincoln Theatre, Ben’s Chili Bowl, and the titanic grasping hands of a half-submerged Marion Barry. As if a trip to the links wasn’t enough to work up an appetite, the entire first floor of H Street tempts gamers with skee-ball, shuffleboard, and wall-vs-human staring contests—all within an arm’s reach of margaritas, mojitos, and other specialty drinks.
Upstairs, a glass panel filled with retired golf balls gazes out over artist and contributing decorator Lee T. Wheeler’s talents, which alight upon everything from the sculptures crafted from repurposed birdhouses to the bar’s cushy lounge seating. The design sets the stage for executive chef Pablo Cardoso’s upscale take on classic Mexican food, with tables welcoming grilled skirt steak splayed over "cowboy" beans, a half chicken paired with yuca, and fajitas stuffed with still-sizzling shrimp. For dessert, the chef stuffs crisp empanadas with sweet mangoes, topping the confection with creamy ice cream and a note to get out of gym class for a week.
