Sticky Rice Sushi Happy Hour

'

Editorial Review

With its knock-'em-dead karaoke nights, high-speed bingo and weekend VJs, Sticky Rice is the hippest sushi bar in town. Even its happy hour eschews the suit-and-tie friendly after-work setup, and runs from 10:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Monday nights. Your reward for skipping sleep and heading to H Street? Half-price nigiri and inventive rolls, including the crunchy shrimp with roe and spicy sauce, and the Yellow Basil, which pairs hamachi tuna with yellow basil, pink Himalayan sea salt and scallions. (Attention vegetarians and vegans: Sticky's clever menu will become one of your favorites.)
