The 201 Bar is much more than just your regular bar. Sure, it's got a lot of elements in common with other bars: big screen televisions tuned to sports games, happy hour specials that bring in a lively crowd, lounge-style seating arranged into intimate groupings and plenty of drinks to go around. But what makes this place different from all the rest is its abundance of extra amenities and events.
In addition to ordering yourself a glass of wine or a handcrafted cocktail, budding mixologists at Flats 130 can also take a "master class" and learn how to evaluate your whiskey, wine or beer like a pro. The regular food menu features favorites like steak frites, crab cakes, and carnitas tacos, but the atmosphere is much more catered to large groups than most bars and restaurants in the area. It’s services like these that explain why the owners at 201 Bar to refer to their establishment as "Capitol Hill's best-stocked living room."
