Grog and Tankard

  • Events
The Grog and Tankard The Grog and Tankard is the longest running bar with live music in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Having been a local favorite for 40 years, it is best known for hosting a wide variety of local and nationally recognized bands. We are looking for artists and bands in all genres to come and play our historic bar. We host 3-5 bands nightly and have capacity for 150 people, but we do not have a built in crowd, so artists should do their own promotions. Band members and the crowd they draw should be 21 or older. Bands will be compensated based on their ability to draw a crowd, and all bands will be provided with a quality stage and sound system.
