Despite the pool rack and cue on the neon sign outside, Angles is not just about billiards. Opened in 1995 by Pat O'Donnell, a freelance photographer fresh from the battlefields of Afghanistan, Yugoslavia and the Persian Gulf, Angles is a clean, well-lit place where stories are traded and acquaintances made over bottles, pints or even liters of beer.
The clientele is eclectic but draws more from the Adams-Morgan neighborhood than outside. Imported draft and bottled beers and the French cuisine at the well-reviewed Little Fountain Cafe in the basement seem to lure a few more dry-cleaned wardrobes than some of the neighboring establishments. It can be a good place to take a date.
The decor reflects the owner, with framed photos from various insurrections on the walls. Between the two pool rooms one generally taken by the serious players, one for friends hanging out three dart boards (league night on Wednesdays), front bar and the basement restaurant, there's space aplenty. There is never a cover charge or a lack of good conversation.
