A center for art and gastronomy in Washington, DC, our neighborhood is also revered for its nightlife attractions. Clubbers and barstool patrons alike can take solace (and shots) at these stops on the ultimate Dupont Circle pub crawl.

St. Arnold’s on Jefferson

A low-key Belgian restaurant, St. Arnold’s is a good spot to begin a night of drinking. Fill up on a bucket of mussels and get your buzz going with their Dutch-inspired beer list—the Hofbrau Original is a can’t-fail that’s neither too dark nor too light.

Parlay

This popular sports bar in Dupont Circle fills up on weekdays from 4-7 for a happy hour that features discount hand-cut tater tots, wings, beers and pitchers of sangria. Two large-flat-screen televisions hanging over the bar and a young crowd make this a great place to catch a game.

Kabin

After a few stops on your Dupont Circle pub crawl, let loose with cocktails and some dancing at Kabin. It’s pretty easy to party here, with spacious dance floors, uptempo house DJs and all of the VIP and bottle service you can afford.

Sauf Haus Bier Hall & Garden

Huge German beers and pretzels weighing in at nearly two pounds apiece offer the perfect mix of sustenance to keep the party going. Sauf Haus also offers live music on their rooftop beer garden.

Madhatter

Perfect for the last stop on your Dupont Circle pub crawl, this Alice in Wonderland themed bar will add just the right amount of weirdness to those fuzzy late-night memories. If your night stops short, swing by in the morning for brunch with bottomless mimosas and a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar.
