Any Falcons bars in the DC/Alexandria area?

15 posts in this topic

Hi all!

Loooong time member on the boards. Even longer time Falcons fan. My wife and I moved to Alexandria and I DESPERATELY need to watch my birds play tomorrow.

I know the chances are slim, but are there any other Falcons fans getting together to watch the game in the Washington DC/Alexandria, VA area?

All the Redskin fans out here are making me sick!

Thanks in advance.

-me :D

There aren't any Falcons specific bars that I've found. I been going to Champps in Fairfax for the last few seasons. There are a few random Falcons fans from time to time, but not many. I like the atmosphere though, so I move that we take it over and make it a Falcons bar!

Champs in Fairfax. Duly noted.

Thanks! I may shoot you a pm before I plan to head out there.

I'm not from DC but I needed to find a place to watch a game when in the area and I found one in Crystal City - just a few blocks west of DCA (Reagan airport) 23rd street I think. They've had every NFL game on that was going on at the time, and I ran into several Falcons fans. Can't remember the exact name, but thats closer than Fairfax.

Thanks Atlsport! I'm only 15 min from the airport. I'll look into to it.

I live in Old Town, I have yet to find a "Falcons Bar" I usually go to Southside 815, across the street from my place. It's on S Washington St, on the way to Mt Vernon before it turns back to GW parkway. Get there by 11:30 to noon, it fills up quick. I know the owner, he usually gets me a decent TV. It's a Steelers bar, but the brunch is great and the Chili Dogs during the game are fantastic.

Bugsy's on King is okay, and Joe Theisman's in Old Town is supposedly a great place to watch a game.

Crystal City Sports Bar (off Rt 1 on 23rd, I think) has fantastic food, and you can reserve a table upstairs for like $100 next to the TV with your game on (towards your bar tab), which I've done a couple times when friends were in town.

niiiiice!

I"ve been to Theisman's during offseason. Great food. It's right next to my wife's office. All these sound like good suggestions. Needless to say, there's not nearly a big enough fan base anywhere but in Atlanta (and sometimes not even there <_< ) for a "Falcons bar" but I'll take what I can get right about now.

Thanks for the info!

It's funny that someone would make this thread. I have to go out of town to my in-laws house in south Maryland next week. I was already looking for a sports bar because her whole family are dead hard Redskins fans. This is good info to know.

I have asked this same question for a number of years, as I have lived in DC for more than 5 years now. I will say that beginning last season, the best place I have been is the Mellow Mushroom in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC. They have the second floor bar area set for Falcons games, and it is usually on the big projection screen with audio on as well. Now, for the Saints game, the game will actually be on TV here (a rarity for a 1 pm game) so I will be rooting from home. But this is by far the most "Falcon-friendly" bar I have seen.

Go Falcons! Rise Up!

What's up guys, lifetime Falcons fan here, grew up in ATL and now live in Arlington, VA. I've been reading these boards almost daily for years and never contributed, so I figured I may as well start now.

For the first time that I have noticed while living in the DC Metro Area, there is a push for a Falcons fan group. Check it out:

Also, there is now a Falcons bar in DC! It's called Mason Inn and is in the Glover Park neighborhood of DC. Sadly, no Metro access, but a Falcons bar is a Falcons bar. They are kicking it off this Sunday and looking for some Falcons momentum, if you live in the area check it out!!

Can't wait for Sunday.

For sure! I don't think I can make it tomorrow but I definitely plan to frequent it this Fall and want to be around as many Falcons fans as possible.
