Party Earth Old Glory BBQ Review

The Scene

Old Glory BBQ in Washington, DC's Georgetown is a great BBQ & bourbon joint that also hosts a big nighttime party scene. Get messy in DC with Party Earth.

Nestled as it is on Georgetown’s always-bustling M Street, Old Glory BBQ is in a premium geographical position to draw big crowds of barbecue fans day and night – and it most certainly does, though patrons who don’t want their ribs with a side of raucous college kids will probably want to head elsewhere after 10pm.

The décor has old-school pub flair, with lots of warm wood paneling, Elvis portraits and vintage auto parts on the brick walls, and long checkered-clothed tables to handle big platters of messy meat. Several flat-screens behind the main bar cover the game, but they receive little attention on weekends when Glory is more about dancing, drinking, and trying to score in ways that definitely don’t involve sports.

Upstairs, a second bar and an open patio stay packed Thursday through Saturday nights with hard-drinking college kids, especially those from nearby Georgetown, George Washington, and American universities.

A DJ on Fridays and Saturdays helps keep everyone on their feet between bites from the limited late-night menu, while cultured drinkers looking to savor something besides beer can choose from over one hundred varieties of bourbon.

Those in the mood for less of a party scene can always drop in during the day, when older locals and loads of tourists take their turn at the grilled grub. But whether in the form of food or festivities, Old Glory always promises lots of messy fun.

Tip from Lucas:

Hit up Old Glory for Thirsty Thursdays with half-priced drafts from 5pm to close.

  • Crowd

    Recent grads looking to party and college kids from Georgetown, George Washington, and American University wholly dominate the nighttime crowd, with tourists of every ilk, older locals, barbecue fans, bourbon seekers, and families during the day, 20s to late 20s at night, mid-20s to 40s+ by day.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJs most Fridays and Saturdays from 11pm. Trivia on Tuesdays from 7pm. Several flat-screens tuned to sports.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Full menu of American barbecue fare including ribs, hand-sliced beef brisket, wings, kielbasa, sandwiches, and this strange vegetable creation called a salad. Free cornbread with each meal.

    Limited late-night menu available M–Th, Su from 10:30pm–12:30am and F–Sa 11pm–1:30am. Happy Hour M–F 3–6:30pm.

    Cover charge $3 after 10pm. Late-night menu $4–$24, appetizers $6–$11, salads $8–$16, sandwiches $8–$14, entrées $13–$24, desserts $6–$8.

    Beer $5–$8, wine $5–$9/glass or $25–$50/bottle, cocktails $5–$12, bourbon $5–$50+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: jeans, khakis, shorts, t-shirts, button-downs, cute dresses, comfortable skirts.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for a packed scene of college kids after dinner hours, or any day to sample the barbecue.

  • Close By

    Rhino Bar and Pumphouse (3295 M Street NW) is a sports bar two blocks away that makes for a great place to drink and watch a big game – and then DJs keep the party going late into the night.

Old Glory BBQ User Reviews

Average rating:
Good BBQ Bar in the Heart of Georgetown
Jimmy D. Nov 24, 2012
Old Glory is a fixture in Georgetown. Right at the corner of M Street and Wisconsin it is literally in the center of Georgetown. The bar is a casual spot for sports viewing, meeting up with friends and grabbing lunch or dinner. The bbq is good but not great. A good selection of sauces and the burgers are good. Old Glory is an easy place to meet in Georgetown given its location. If its not up to snuff for you you can walk out on M Street and find about 40 other bars to drink at.
Stands the test of time

It's an oldie but goodie. You can't go wrong with Old Glory, especially if you want some good barbeque to go along with your beer. Sure, the college crowds can get annoying, but mostly this place conjures good memories -- not only from my college days, but also more recent times.
