Happy Hour at Barcode

Happy hour

Editorial Review

Barcode's sleek design, high tables and glowing LED lights say Euro-lounge, but the sports and CNN streaming on TVs behind the marble bar say "D.C. after-work spot." The daily happy hour attracts downtown workers for half-price beers, wines and rail drinks at the bar from 4 to 7 p.m., spilling over to tables on the wide sidewalk patio area. On Tuesdays, DJs from the popular Glow dance party at Fur spin techno and house, and all bottles of wine are half-price all night.
