Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant *

Beachy Oasis Across the Potomac; Worth the Trip
Run by the charismatic Freddie, this colorful "straight friendly" bar/restaurant is a fun stop just across the Potomac River in the Crystal City neighborhood of Arlington, VA, near Reagan National Airport. Freddie's is THE only gay bar in Northern Virginia. Features Drag Bingo on Wednesdays; a full drag production show on Sunday's at 9pm; and karaoke in between. Expansive comfort- and bar-food menu and Saturday and Sunday brunch buffets compliment the drinks. (Be aware that Arlington in a pro-gay enclave in a generally anti-gay state.)
