Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of drinks at Rocket Bar, located across the street from the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro stop.
Exposed beams, ecto-cooler-hued walls, and colorful seating give the bar a cool, futuristic, Ghostbusters'-day-off feel. Filling the industrial-looking interior are three full bars, eliminating waiting times. While sipping on bottled beers ($4–$6) or a glass of wine ($5–$7), take on a friend at one of six shuffleboard tables, seven pool tables, or six dartboards. Rocket Bar also boasts 14 draft selections ($4–$6), rail drinks ($5), and call liquors ($6.50), which provide enough throat lubrication to sing along with one of the two jukeboxes. Apply the value during happy hour (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) to take advantage of reduced rates and specials, including $4 glasses of wine, draft of the month, rail drinks, and champagne. Challenge your neighborhood to dart games, host a Bastille Day party, or watch the game on one of 17 HDTVs.
- It's a "semi dive bar", the space is cavernous (if slightly labyrinthine), the bartenders are friendly guys, and (particularly if the Caps are playing) it gets friendly-rowdy. 'Tsall good. – Matt J., Yelp
- …I can amuse myself here for hours on end. – Allyson P., Yelp
- An assortment of good beers and a friendly environment can easy spark a game of pool or shuffle board. – jcolchao, Citysearch
