If you’re looking for a place to drink in Georgetown that isn’t full of Hoya Saxa bros, The Sovereign is your spot. It’s a Belgian pub with medieval-style chandeliers, long wooden tables, and a general Game of Thrones feel. The beer list is massive, with around 50 Belgian options on draft and hundreds of other bottles available. Food options like charcuterie, mussels, and frites are all ideal for sharing with one other person or a group. Post up at one of the high-top tables, and move to a booth if you decide you want a full meal.
