Hawk N Dove
The Hawk ‘n’ Dove Restaurant is the archetypal Capitol Hill bar – not the mythical kind where movers and shakers make big deals over expense-account meals.
Instead, it’s a place where staffers, both Democrat and Republican, gather to gripe about their bosses. (Never by name, of course. The etiquette is to refer to "my member," in case the other guys are eavesdropping.)
The bar’s six rooms provide plenty of options – room for a post-softball gathering, a quick drink or an almost-quiet conversation in front of the fireplace. Sandwiches and burgers are available mercifully late, until 1am weeknights or 2am weekends.
