Marked only by a single light above its door, Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar is a neighborhood haunt catering to anyone in the mood for three-dollar beers, loud rock music, and oceans of vibrant purple décor.
Once inside the main room of this tri-level violet catacomb, a young and unpretentious crowd enjoys everything from tall PBRs to rare microbrews and imports, all served up on a bar encased in glitter.
Velvet wallpaper covers the dimly-lit walls, which are awash in gilded tchotchkes like golden cowboy boots, silkscreen rock concert posters, and a life-size cutout of Elvis.
Hipsters and celebratory groups tuck into alcoves lined with fuchsia brick or, for a more intimate experience, take over a private area where plush velvet furniture shares space with a brightly-lit aluminum Christmas tree.
Hungry patrons luck out Thursday through Saturday when a chef sets up shop on the patio, doling out barbecued eats to guests, who can enjoy their snacks outside or on one of the barber chairs in the smaller downstairs space. On Friday and Saturday nights, DJs choreograph an enthused dance crowd on the upstairs level, where sweaty revelers quench their thirst at a second bar.
Carefully walking the line between kitschy and sexy, Little Miss Whiskey’s is the logical choice for eccentric fun.
Mixed bag of urban hipsters and unpretentious young professionals, mid-20s to late 30s.
Playlist of rock music crossing genres and decades downstairs. DJs spin everything from metal to retro alternative and funk upstairs on Fridays and Saturdays. Karaoke on first and third Wednesdays. See website for schedule of events.
No set menu, but various chefs take over an outdoor grill on most nights Th–Su. Cash only. ATM on site.
Grill prices $5–$10. Beer $3–$15, cocktails $5–$10.
Casual: lots of skinny jeans, vintage threads, and buttoned-up oxford shirts.
Select Wednesdays for karaoke and 80s music, and Fridays and Saturdays for a packed nightlife scene and dancing.
Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club (1103 Bladensburg Road NE), under the same ownership, offers a similar vibe with (usually) less of a crowd.
