Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cold brews, complex bourbon, and more at the Iron Horse Tap Room, located downtown, just one block south of the Verizon Center.

The Iron Horse Tap Room is a welcoming space where fine-liquor purveyors can sample new libations, play shuffleboard, watch sports, or engage in vigorous debate over the best British Parliamentary debate. Standard drafts like Miller Lite ($5) and Blue Moon ($6) make appearances, while adventurous barley adherents can appraise the wheaty Allagash White ($7) or the Ommegang Abbey Ale ($8), brimming with clove and dried-fruit flavors. Beer indulgers can get more explosions for their buck at the Iron Horse's happy hour, when draft beers are $2 off. Otherwise, Iron Horse's impressive collection of bourbons and whiskeys, from Blanton's to Crown Royal, is enough to impress even a bourbon-filled floaty-pen salesman.

Those who feel the need for competition can rack up record points on Iron Horse's two Skee-Ball machines, or challenge drinkers-by to duel via one of four shuffleboard tables. Non-gamers can simply unwind amidst the bar's vintage motorcycles, like the '70s Hondas displayed above bar-minglers. Evel Knievel comics and motorcycle ads hang around the room, completing the motorcycle ambience.

Reviews

The Washington Post has good things to say about the Iron Horse Tap Room, as does DC Beer. Thirty-nine Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars:

  • There's a large above-ground bar with expansive windows overlooking the sidewalk, filled with gleaming hardwood and couch-filled nooks. Down a flight of stairs, the basement feels less like a cave than any below-ground space in Washington, thanks to 18-foot ceilings. It's spacious, too, with room for about 300 people -- something to be thankful for after a Capitals game. – Fritz Hahn, The Washington Post

  • A pretty decent place to grab a beer (or four) with your friends. The upstairs is a bit small and quiet, but nice if you want to have a conversation. The real action is down in the basement. – Rachel S.

  • This place does one thing and one thing pretty darn good - serve good beer and spirits. – Sam C.
