Primarily a jukebox joint, Showtime has a stellar collection of R&B and vintage soul curated by owner and DJ Paul Vivari. And, best of all, it’s free. Drinks aren’t much more expensive: Grab a $5 “ComBOH” (Natty Boh and cheap bourbon), spend some time in the bathrooms where vintage Redskins articles are pasted all over the walls and cue up a few songs. Though it’s only been open since 2013, Showtime has the makings of a longterm dive.
