There’s no shortage of places to grab a beer and watch a game in Bethesda. Unfortunately, most of these places are over-run with ex-frat stars trying to relive the glory days. Brickside knows this and is here for you. Here, you’ll find plenty of TVs (including one huge projection screen), solid drinks, and good food, all in a cool space that resembles a fancy loft that a cool sitcom character would live in. Even if you aren’t interested in the game, grab a seat by the open bay windows when it’s nice out.

There are a few floors to DC9, but we prefer the rooftop that has a good view of U Street.
Calico has one of our favorite patios in Shaw, as well as cocktails in Capri Sun-style pouches and shareable small plates.
Part basement dance floor, part casual bar, Cafe Saint-Ex comes in handy for nights out on 14th Street.
