While in DC, we had to check out some night life. DuPont Circle is a trendier area of town. It is also home to some nightlife in DC, including quite a few gay bars and clubs.
One of G's friends wanted to meet at this place called The Fireplace. It is cash only, but they have a sort of ATM. You scan your card, get a receipt, and then go to the cashier to get your money.
It's two levels. The first floor charged me $4 for a drink, while the 2nd floor charged me $3. Both prices are cheap, especially considering their pours. These drinks are STRONG. They basically give you a cup of alcohol. The drink I had was straight whiskey on the rocks, and the tall glass was almost full.
If you want to drink on the cheap and get a good buzz from one drink, this is the place. My only negative thing was this place had a bit of a dank smell. It was better upstairs.
I had an awesome time at this place. It's a dive bar, and I love going to dive bars.
