We live in a city that has an abundance of singles, yet we can’t seem to find the perfect match; or any potential for that matter. I can attest to it. I’m not here to play matchmaker, but hopefully some of these suggestions will have you guys set for cuffing season (which is tapping us on the shoulder by the way).
First stop, your local grocery store. Always leave the house dressed as if you could very well run into your husband. This is a neutral place, and I’ve heard it to be a good spot to meet someone. Go in open minded, be sure to look decent, and from there, you just have to see what happens.
Nellie’s Sports Bar Nellie’s caters to the LGBT community and is such a cool bar! I’ve been here on numerous occasions and can easily see why the community loves it. Tons of single, beautiful men, strong drinks, and amazing food. Yes, the food is phenomenal! Nellie’s is the perfect spot for single gay men in particular, to possibly meet their match. On the corner of 9th & U Street NW
Red Derby Before I get to the good part, this is a cash only bar; but with the inexpensive menu, you should be fine. This spot features board games, pool tables and a roof-deck. This is far from a pretentious bar so you can be versatile as it pertains to your wardrobe. Many of the activities are potential conversation starters; perfect opportunity to meet someone new! Grab a $6 Bud and shot combo and let the mingling commence. 3718 14th Street NW
Biergarten Haus The set up at Biergarten Haus forces you to meet people you wouldn’t have otherwise. This involves beer and random seating at picnic tables; if you’re open to that, you have to go and check out this spot. Grab a seat next to your possible future soulmate and stay cool with a glass of chilled beer. You can’t beat this! 1355 H Street NE
Marvin’s I can actually attest to Marvin’s. You can go here any day of the week and potentially meet your next love situation. This is the best melting pot for the more eclectic singles in the area. Marvin’s is a laid back atmosphere with great music, great drinks, and possibly great sites. Happy hunting! 2007 14th Street NW
Now, I’ve given you the map of gold, it’s up to you to find it. Use this list and find your next potential bae, netflix-and-chill partner, or whatever your heart desires. Summer isn’t quite over yet, but Fall is right around the corner. The time for mixing and mingling is now; don’t miss your opportunity!
