Linda’s isn’t exactly a dive bar, but it’s also not where you bring your country club friends who wear plaid golf pants. It’s the perfect spot for a shot-and-beer combo, or you can sip a great local cider or a margarita. There’s a big back patio, taxidermy, arcade machines, and a fun crowd at all times. The jukebox tunes don’t stop, and the snacks are good too (despite the inevitably long wait for food). We don’t have any idea who Linda is, but she rocks.

Suggested by our writers
Rhein Haus is your stereotypical biergarten in Capitol Hill, and it’s great. There’s a patio, glass boots for beer, and comically large pretzels.
Stout is a Capitol Hill utility bar. It’s never too busy, and works for groups, birthday pre-games, and watching sports. The food is decent too.
