This old brick two-story in the shadow of the Capitol heats up after dark. George Street is a mild-mannered pub and eatery during the day, popular with the lunch crowd from the government buildings nearby. The menu offers a full fare of sandwiches, burgers and a few more extravagant dishes. Later hours draw the college crowd. After the kitchen closes at 9p, the music cranks up, and the bar scene is in full effect. Upstairs, local bands take the stage and keep the party going late into the night. A cover charge is occasionally required.
