Under Par Bar. Simple math: bar + bar sports = bar fun. Of course, anything is made better after a tequila-tasting event, which I was lucky enough to attend here on a recent Tuesday. H St CC has quality happy hour specials, but also boast boardwalk classics sorely lacking in the DC nightlife scene – skeeball, knock hockey, and video shooting games. The get-the-ball-in-the-hole theme is showcased, where a nine-hole mini-golf course ($7) features a dapper and very dead Teddy Roosevelt and Godzilla’s sad stepsister clinging to the Washington Monument. Chips at the bar come with three (!) kinds of salsa, though better Mexican food can be found elsewhere. Still, its surely the best golf course on H St., so dress up in those Augusta whites and fill your pockets with quarters. If you can, catch the free twice-hourly shuttle from the Chinatown metro, which makes access way easier.
Mexican-Infused Mini Golf Bar. H Street Country Club is an unusual cross between a bar or cantina, a Mexican restaurant, and putt-putt golf. But it works, really well, in fact. I'm often here when I venture into H St. for a night out of bar hopping, as there is no cover and the scene is fun and vibrant. I almost always go for their margaritas, not just because I personally love margaritas, but H St. Country Club's margaritas are really darn good. And they have frozen versions for when it's blazing out. The food is actually much better than the standard bar fare that you get at most spots like this - they have a good menu of Mexican dishes that stray from the normal burritos and tacos and instead go for a traditional Mexican influence (think mole and escabeche). And they're big portions too - yes, you'll pay up to $20 but you get your money's worth. Be patient for the mini-golf since there will be a wait if you're there on a weekend evening, but it's all a lot of fun. It's easy to spend an entire night there, with drinks, a meal and mini-golf after. Definitely don't skip this spot when you're out in the area.
Citysearch Editorial Review. It’s not your usual bar/golf course (if there is such a thing): Lego-inspired businessmen wield briefcases, a parking attendant flashes some plumber-esque skin near a beltway replica and Marion Barry awakens from the faux turf on the only nine-hole putt-putt course in D.C. But the par 22 course on the upper level isn't the only attraction. The long, dim downstairs bar features cozy seating, Skee-Ball and inventive cocktails from Gina Chersevani, a nationally recognized mixologist and cocktail consultant. If thirst strikes mid-game, servers will take a drink order on the course. Hungry patrons can reserve tables in the upstairs dining area for Mexican-inspired dishes or order snacks like made-to-order guacamole and homemade tortilla chips at the bar.
