12. Rocket Bar
Address: 714 7th St. NW
Next time you're at Rocket Bar, try this: slide someone a $20 to play the most obnoxious trap music on the jukebox. One look at the clientele and you're understand that 2 Chainz is exactly what this crowd needs. The subterranean Chinatown bar did itself a favor by redoing the carpet, because the previous situation smelled like a one-two combo of ass and urine. The employees are cool, but the patrons stink as bad as that carpet did. The Verizon Center is located directly across the street, so do yourself a tremendous favor and steer clear of the area during all sporting events. The only thing more annoying than droves of beer-drunk Caps fans board-checking other patrons is the realization that they're at every other bar in the area. No escape.
