Last week, we asked our readers which bar they consider the best bar in DC. While many participated in the poll, we did attempt to add new bars to the list as the requests came in.

Eating DC: Lounge 201

#5 – Union Pub

37 votes

A favorite for hill staffers, Union Pub brings the masses out. Ether you’re ordering buckets of beers watching your favorite sports team, or you’re shmoozing it up like our S#!T Hill Staffer did. Bartenders, like Lance, will make you feel like a regular.

Eating DC: Lounge 201

#4 – The Hamilton

38 votes

A new favorite of the ClotureClub team. This new Restaurant/Bar, we believe, will be the next best “secret” in DC. The atmosphere of rich mahogany, great food, and piano bar upstairs. You’ll quickly fall in love with this place. Also, tell the bartender Soup we sent ya!

Eating DC: Lounge 201

#3 – Pour House

42 Votes

A truly bipartisan establishment, this Steeler’s nation bar has 3 unique bars: Top of the Hill, Pour house and the basement. I like to call it the Ski Chalet. They have something for everyone.

best bar in DC: Capitol Lounge

#2 – Capitol Lounge

46 Votes

In close second, Capitol Hill’s frequently visited bar, Cap Lounge, offers many unique specials. Known for their 25 cent wing nights and retro political posters, you’ll find this place warm and inviting. Their happy hour specials aren’t “half” bad either. Tell their bouncer Eugine or Chad we sent ya!

best bar in DC: Marvins DC

#1 – Marvins Restaurant

48 Votes

Near the U Street Metro, this good looking establishment won our Best Bar in DC by our readers. The creators of Marvin have combined the cafe society of Belgium, with the proud soul of Shaw. Dubbed 2012 Open Table Diners’ Choice and our winner of the Best Bar in DC by our readers, their bar, along with the rooftop, is definitely worth checking out.

There are plenty, but are they the Best Bar in DC?

We also asked some of our friends on Twitter what their favorite place is:
