Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of lounge fare and drinks redeemed Friday or Saturday, or $35 worth of lounge fare and drinks redeemed on a Sunday or Tuesday–Thursday, at Lounge of Three in the U Street Corridor. Lounge of Three is closed on Mondays.
At Lounge of Three, scarlet walls envelop a softly lit upstairs lounge lined with leather seating, while the ground level offers a TV-bearing bar, both of which show off a variety of small plates and sandwiches to complement cocktails and conversation. Mini morsels like the lemon-pepper-infused garlic wine shrimp ($10) can provide tantalizing previews to hearty meals or exercise seafood independence like so many daytime TV spinoffs of The Little Mermaid . Bantam burgers come in the carnivorous or meat-free variety, with the three-bean mini veggie burger ($9) acting as a peaceful pacifist to the hawkish Angus beef of the mini mama burger ($9). Full-sized flavors of savory sandwiches such as the cilantro-lemon-butter-infused tilapia pita ($10) and buffalo chicken sandwich ($8) fill main-course cravings.
As taste buds are captivated, other attentions are entertained by Lounge of Three's weekly musical events including karaoke Tuesdays, frequent DJ performances, and unsolicited bar-side ringtone sing-along sessions. With a smattering of available board games and large screens playing games of the sporting variety, Lounge of Three is as good a place to kick back and relax as it is to practice moving to a bumping beat for your next human metronome competition.
- A two-story bar and restaurant with cozy leather chairs, tables stocked with board games and DJs who stick to a steady diet of old-school and underground hip-hop and vintage soul and funk. – Fritz Hahn, Washington Post
- fried buffalo wings, they were still tasty and reasonable priced. Complemented with a huge portion of fries, that were seasoned well and had a little kick to the them. – Fly Carla, The Fly Girl Guide
