DC's 17th Street icon
Great drink specials, campy videos, and friendly bartenders keep JR's packed with fun 7 days a week. If you're looking for a casual place for a drink, JR's is the place to go, right in the heart of the the primary gay hood. This is the place to play "pin the tail on the closeted Republican Hill staffers," who often congregate here. (Website is useless and not updated; don't depend on it. Just go.)
