If you value straight-talking friends and a chill atmosphere, then A&D might become your go-to bar in the Shaw neighborhood. Some might call this place a “dive,” which mainly alludes to the fact that the prices are affordable and there’s no fancy food menu to distract from the main draw: cold beers and well-mixed cocktails. However, if you want a bit of food with your drink, don’t worry: A&D does serve up a few house favorites (don’t miss the frito pie), and the bar is also happy to allow you to bring in your own food (note that there are several tasty options for sandwiches and snacks nearby).
Happy hour at A&D is especially popular, so don’t hesitate to meet some friends from Hodge on 7th here for post-work discounts on wine and custom-crafted cocktails.
