I have had some great nights here and some boring nights here. I highly recommend that you go on a Friday night when there is live music. The place is completely packed, but it is worth it because the bands they hire are amazing. There are 2 levels so if it’s too crowded you can go upstairs. You can still hear the music from the 2nd level since it is more like an indoor balcony. I have gone other nights where the live music is crap and the place is empty. One of the most boring nights out I’ve had since moving back to DC. Hint*** if Watermelon is playing that night, you MUST go. They are an amazing high energy funk rock band that frequents Bobby Lew’s.
PS. NO COVER CHARGE! Even for nights with live music.
