Here is what some of our customers are saying:

“I hosted a private event here and couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. There are very few places in DC that would have been able to accommodate that many people, and one that is dog friendly and kid friendly AND has fun vibes. We are BIG fans of metrobar!”
– Sarah


“I applaud management and staff for continuing to adapt and improve this space. Each time I return, metrobar has something new to add and always makes our time hanging more enjoyable. They are straightforward about welcoming you in and making sure you have a great time!”

“I attended an event here that was a blast! Amazing outdoor summer vibes with cool vendors and entertainment.”
– Zev


“The cutest bar in DC because they have a Metro car that you can sit in and have drinks with friends. I came here for a special event – the music, the vibes, the people, were all great and contributed to a very fun night. Bartenders were friendly and the selection was cool with some local beers on the menu. I’ll definitely be back.”
