Prince of Petworth Happy Hour @ Looking Glass Lounge

Some of us New Columbia Heights bloggers and friends went up to Petworth yesterday to check out the Prince of Petworth's happy hour. We met the Prince, who was a nice guy, and enjoyed the bar - if anybody hasn't been, it's worth a visit or three. It's located at 3634 Georgia Ave NW, near Otis Place, not far from the Petworth Metro or Columbia Heights proper.

The place was formerly called Temperance Hall (because it really was a temperance hall back in the day) and is a neighborhood fave. The owner of Wonderland bought it a little while ago, hence the name change (see the theme?), but as far as I can tell, there haven't been many changes.

It's dark and moody inside, a nice pub atmosphere, and they have a good selection of beer, specials, and food - everybody raves about the garlic fries. There's also a back (downstairs) beer garden with a bar and picnic tables, which was a good place to hang out despite the chilly weather - they have those big heat lamps. The place has a friendly neighborhood vibe, a bit like a slightly fancier, less crowded Wonderland. Cool spot. And stay tuned for a fun announcement from there in the next week or so.

Here's their Yelp page.
