DOWNTOWN WASHINGTON, DC –
Fast Eddie’s Sports & Billiards is a downtown sports bar best known for two-dollar beer specials and quick access to naked women. Purchased by the owners of adjoining Archibald's Gentlemen's Club in 2001, Eddie’s occupies the second and third floor of the building, and is strictly about sports during the day.
Featuring heavy bar food, multiple TVs, and large posters of Paul Newman, the joint entices young professionals from nearby offices to grab a bud and catch a game during the bar’s popular lunchtime hours.
Once on the stairway to Eddie’s, however, many sports fans take a detour to the second floor, which is often mistaken as an overflow space for the bar upstairs. Booths and small poles line the room, where skimpily-attired waitresses serve up steaks and burgers earlier in the day – but come 8:45pm, the girls put down their trays, and it quickly becomes clear that the poles aren’t there to hold up the ceiling.
Most of the bros in attendance stick around to spend their singles on the newly denuded staff, though groups can still shoot stick on the third floor without the added distraction.
Good for a cheap beer and a few rounds of eight ball, Fast Eddie’s Sports & Billiards is a great place to rack some balls or check out some racks.
Young professionals, sports fans, blue-collar regulars, office types, and interns, mid-20s to mid-30s.
Multiple TVs above the bar. Three pool tables. Jukebox. Naked ladies downstairs.
American menu with bar staples like nachos, sliders, and ribs. Happy Hour M–F 3–8pm with various specials throughout the week.
Appetizers $5–$13, entrées $11–$20. Beer $5–$6, wine $5.50/glass, cocktails $4–$7. Pool $5.50/hr.
Anything goes but backwards hats: casual jeans and t-shirts, business casual, and dedicated sports team apparel. Stricter dress code for Archibald’s: no tank tops, cut-offs, sleeveless shirts, athletic wear, or dirty, torn, obscene, or excessively baggy clothing.
Mondays nights for football during the fall season and for other big sporting events, and Friday nights for a crowded night of sipping and stripping.
BlackFinn American Saloon (1620 I Street NW) has a lot more TVs tuned to sports and an attractive (though fully-clothed) staff.
