With a vibrant young professional crowd, several colleges in the area and a majority of working professionals active in the local bar scene, Washington DC certainly deserves to scores highly, says Jeff Khadavi.
DC’s happy hour scene has a number of diverse options, from happy hours overlooking the Potomac to dive bars serving $2 beers and piano bars that combine live entertainment with deep discounts.
There is also a high density of happy hours within the DC city limits - with nearly 13 per square mile - that draw clientele from the nearby cities in Virginia and Maryland via the city’s highly-rated Metrorail system.
