Party Earth 19th Review

The Scene

Although 19th has a subtle golf theme, this cozy neighborhood bar doesn't discriminate when it comes to sports – and its décor suggests that drinking games are a better team activity anyway.

Although 19th has a subtle golf theme, this cozy neighborhood bar doesn’t discriminate when it comes to sports – and its décor suggests that drinking games are a better team activity anyway.

Vintage alcohol signs take up much of the turf-green walls, commingling with placards bearing tried-and-true axioms like, “Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder,” while rings on the wooden tables suggest the scars of many flip-cup battles.

Due to its location in the heart of the financial district, the venue attracts a solid after-work crowd of preppy young K Street professionals, who settle in at the small corner bar to catch sports highlights on the flat-screens, or relax with coworkers on the handful of couches by the street-side windows.

Younger frat types and recent college grads join in for the daily – and lengthy – Happy Hour specials, and although the hardwood floors can get cramped when a DJ starts spinning Top 40, the tight quarters don’t deter the urge to dance.

As an official sponsor of DC United, the bar can also get packed during soccer season, but weekend bottomless beer brunches keep the party going all year long.

Regardless of whether they've ever set foot on a golf course, patrons of this Downtown establishment know that 19th is both a fun sports bar and a casual watering hole-in-one.

Tip from Lucas:

The signature drinking game here is Bar Golf, in which foursomes go for par by downing an ever-increasing number of drinks. If your team finishes all its ‘holes,’ then you win your names engraved on a gold ‘I Survived Bar Golf’ plaque on the wall!

    Laid-back sports-loving grads, young professionals, and older finance types, especially during Happy Hour, with the crowd trending younger on the weekend.
