Located in the trendy Manhattan Laundry building, Franklin Hall is already a bustling drinking destination, whether for large groups or rowdy happy hours. The bar brings the classic European beer hall vibe to D.C. In addition to the communal tables, there’s also a huge bar top and spruced-up seating areas with leather couches. The bar features 20 taps showcasing a diverse selection that spans different styles, and while there’s a local emphasis, craft beers from across the U.S. make the list.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: Beer reigns supreme at Franklin Hall, so find one that suits your palate and then upgrade from a pint to a liter, in true beer hall fashion.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: There’s more on draft than just beer. Expect several draft wines, as well as a rotating draft cocktail, such as Hemingway Daiquiris.
