Inside Service Bar, Which Starts Serving Thursday

New U Street bars and affordable cocktails aren't typically synonymous, but that's about to change this week.

Service Bar DC (SBCD) is set to open Thursday, Oct. 20 with an all-night happy hour of $7 classic cocktails, as well as $7 Pop and Ponies (beer and a shot) and buy-one-get-one shots. Find its inconspicuous entrance at 926-928 U St. NW, across the street from El Rey. If the names behind the brand sound familiar, it's because they've got some deep booze roots in D.C.
