When hitting the clubs starts to hit you too hard, visit one of these unique restaurants.
H Street Country Club is a good bet if you are looking for a restaurant and bar off the beaten path.
Nestled in D.C.’s Atlas District, H Street Country Club boasts the city’s only indoor mini golf course and puts a new spin on Mexican cuisine.
A round of mini golf on the 21-and-up course costs $7, but customers get a free round of golf with dinner Sundays through Tuesdays.
If a round of golf does not fill your gaming fix, you can also play shuffleboard, skeeball or Xbox Kinect in the bar area.
The entrees, all served with rice and beans, range from $12 to $19. If you come on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, you can enjoy 35 minutes of golf and a delicious Mexican meal, all for under $20. Appetizers range from $3 to $10 and are perfect for sharing.
Try the Dorado – pan-seared Mahi Mahi with sautéed vegetables in a jalapeño-lime sauce. Or stick with something lighter, like the Country Club Salad, one of the restaurant’s many vegetarian and vegan options, all of which are clearly marked on the menu.
Specials include endless happy hour Tuesdays, featuring Dos Equis ($3) and margaritas ($5). Regular happy hour lasts from 5 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 4 to 7 p.m. Fridays through Sundays.
When it’s not happy hour, H Street Country Club’s margaritas cost between $7 and $13, while specialty drinks – named after famous golf clubs and courses, like The Augusta and The Turnberry – typically cost between $8 and $10.
The restaurant also offers a variety of bottled and draft beers, wine and more types of tequila than you have probably heard of.
From the food and drinks to the games, H Street Country Club is a guaranteed good time.
