Jimmy Valentine’s is a hidden dive bar right around the corner from H St. The ambiance is very similar to Little Miss Whiskey’s on H St which has the same owner.
What I like about this bar in particular is that it is unmarked and truly hidden. You enter an apartment-like building and to your right is a door with with a string attached to a handle. Open the door, and you will enter the bar which is decorated with skulls, notes, and various other items.
The menu is interesting and on the cheaper side. Every Friday, beginning at 8pm, they offer $1 PBRs. The price goes up $1 per hour until midnight. The bar is also famous for its “Mr. Lethal” drink, a deadly root beer slush. This drink is delicious and too easy to gulp down, so be careful!
Beyond the unique ambiance and drinks, Jimmy Valentine’s also hires locals DJs and I’ve been told this is a great spot to end up late on a Friday or Saturday.
