At first glance, Bar Pilar might seem like a regular neighborhood pub, but after a few moments at the bar or in the nook under the stairs, it’s clear that Pilar is so much more. Between the warm service, locally-sourced food and solid cocktails, this is a local haven in which to spend a few hours on a Sunday, or happy hour after a long day trekking through D.C. There’s nothing revolutionary or fancy about the space—it’s really just a bar—but order the cheesy poofs, a kale salad, a pint of something cold and carouse with the U Street scenesters and you’ll see what we mean when we say that there’s much more to the place than meets the eye.
