Lounge of Three Washington Reviews
Perfect place for a happy hour if you don't mind cozy quarters Jul 11, 2010
Lounge of Three hasn't been open for more than 2 years, but it has already been voted one of the "Best of DC".
The first floor is narrow, so when you arrive, grab a seat at the bar! You can wander up to the second floor, but only when it gets crowded. What else can you do? Order a great happy hour drink. There are specials for the true happy hour folks (4pm-ish to 7pm-ish) and on some nights, there might be a different happy hour special starting at 7pm and another starting at 11pm. You can order a nifty appetizers-the sliders a great but a little spicy-the way I like it, but if you don't like spicy food, don't order the sliders. No one leaves there without ordering the shrimp (soooooo goood!)
While you're slurping and eating, grab a board game: Scrabble, Connect Four, Dominos, Operation, Scattegories. It's great!
Then there's the music-ugh! Boys II Men, Jodeci, Salt-n-Peppa...the music never fails. I think they throw in some present music, but for the most part, if you were born in the 70s, you'll appreciate the music. Come on another night and the have Hip Hop kareeokee.
I haven't brought anyone there yet who didn't have a good time. Hope you enjoy your visit!
UPDATE (as of July 2010): My favorite bartender is leaving and going somewhere else and will probably take the whole vibe with him, so I'm not sure what Lounge of Three will be like anymore.
