Science Club Extended Happy Hours: Survival of the Cheapest

By Fritz Hahn

Just in time to ease the post-Labor Day blues, Science Club has announced a September stimulus plan: Happy hour will run from open until close Monday through Thursday as well as the usual 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday.

Science Club's happy hour specials are comparable to other downtown spots -- $3 Yuengling, $4 Guinness, Amstel and PBR, $4 rail drinks and $5 red and white Chilean wines by the glass. But the laid-back atmosphere, choice music selection and cool staff set Science Club apart from nearby happy hour venues like Rumors or Sign of the Whale -- it's the kind of place where I'd enjoy settling in with a date for an after-dinner drink as well as meeting up with the office crew at 5:15.

Okay, maybe not all the specials are such great deals; I realize that $4 for a PBR is the upper end of the market, and that's why I'd rather order a rich glass of Carmenere -- one of those $5 Chilean wines -- than a $4 can of beer.

In any event, if you haven't stopped by Science Club in a while -- especially on weeknights when DJs rule the back room -- then this is a great excuse to visit.

One final note: While Science Club is usually closed on Sundays, there will be a DJ spinning this weekend for a Labor Day-eve party. And yes, you'll be able to get the cheap drinks then, too.

Not to be a total dork, but this is my favorite bar in DC and I have to stick up for it, and everyone should know that PBR's are actually only $3. That's $9 for three beers.... Yes please!
