The Gin Mill is owned by the same people as Jake’s Dilemma, which is less than a block away, and it feels very similar. Come here when you want to watch college or NFL football, and bet pitchers of light beer on the outcomes of beer pong games with friends. This place also does Happy Hour deals every day until 8pm, including half off the whole bar on weekdays and half off beers on weekends.
