I’d never been to Bravo! Bravo! before, but it turned out to be a perfect place for an after-work meeting that’s 1) downtown 2) quiet and 3) cheap.
There can be no doubt that this odd, downstairs space turns into a pulsating blob of steamy dance-sweat late at night on the weekends, but at 5:30 on a weekday? Empty.
And cheap. All beers are $3 which is remarkable for anyplace at the confluence of 17th Street, K Street, and Connecticut Avenue, right smack dab in the middle of downtown. Unfortunately, the best I could find was Budweiser American Ale, so I ended up switching to a Bombay Sapphire Gin and Tonic ($6, and yes, it had squirt-pistol tonic) as my comrade nursed her Stolichnaya Martini ($5).
