Haute Sports Hangouts for March Madness

BY Lauren Staehle | March 13, 2017 | Feature Features

The best basketball tournament on the planet is in full swing, and some of our favorite restos and bars are airing the games with style and gourmet fare.
Expect America's finest collection of whiskeys and lots of great viewing spots at Jack Rose.

Jack Rose Dining Saloon
With more than 2,500 unique bottles of whiskey, an underground hideaway straight out of the 1920s and a rooftop hangout, Jack Rose has something for everyone. Enjoy a meal in the main dining room and then venture upstairs for the game and a seasonal cocktail or rare single malt. 2007 18th St. NW, 202.588.7388

BLT Steak
BLT’s Steak’s cozy bar is where you’ll find craft cocktails and a sumptuous dry-aged black angus burger to keep you company while enjoying the game. No screaming fans or stiff bar stools in sight. 1625 I St. NW, 202.689.8999

Beer director Greg Engert has curated the ultimate collection of craft brews for Birch and Barley’s upstairs bar. Sample a few flavors or let the expert staff help you choose from categories like crisp, fruit-spice, roast and malt. 1337 14th St. NW, 202.567.2576

The Gryphon
Despite The Gryphon’s recent transformation from sports bar to social house, it’s still one of the city’s most elegant places to catch the game. Hit the bar and then stay for the party and luxe accommodations. 1337 Connecticut Ave., 202.827.8980

Penn Commons
In the heart of Penn Quarter, this is tavern-chic at its best. With an approachable menu highlighting seasonal ingredients and a cool, rustic aesthetic, it’s a place you’ll want to hang out long after the game ends. 700 Sixth St. NW, 202.905.2999
