The Big Boards
2832 Rhode Island Avenue, Washington, DC

,
A bar that prices drinks based on current market value.

The Big Board treats beer like a commodity: The price of beer changes depending on the current supply and demand in the market, just like stocks. Beers are listed on a big board — hence the name — that displays the prices in real time, so if you're lucky you may pay less for the same beer than the guy who walks in after you.

The Codsmother

, ,
A combination dive bar and fish-and-chips shop.

Inspired by punk, this underground pub place pays homage to The Sex Pistols and Sid Vicious while serving up some of the best beer-battered fish and chips the capital has to offer. It tries to serve only female cod, which it says has better meat and also perfectly complements the cheap PBR/whiskey specials.
