The Argonaut is part English tavern, part San Diego taqueria, part neighborhood coffee shop… minus the coffee. It hosts family night, game night, and trivia night, but was also voted one of Washingtonian’s top 75 bars in 2009. With it’s dark décor, flat screen televisions and fried appetizers, you might at first think this is a sports bar. You couldn’t be further from the truth. If there’s a theme here, it’s all things coastal, the décor taking from a ship with globes as lanterns and a bar stocked with almost 30 types of rum. It goes for the food, too, which is inspired by classic dishes of coastal towns like New Orleans, Nantucket, and Havana. Chesapeake crab cake, anyone? Fish tacos? Ale-battered cod? And while there are televisions, you probably won’t be watching them – you’ll be discussing anything and everything with your new found neighbor or friend. Perhaps they’ll even treat you to a drink from its extensive list of antique draught and bottled beers, wines, and specialty drinks. Funky and fun, you can’t go wrong with a laid-back evening of good food, good drinks and good conversation at The Argonaut. Stop by today to see what all the fuss is about!
