Unique for sure, but I would not call it a “must-see.” Located in a great (albeit young) nightlife district (Adams Morgan) with many options on the strip.

Fun little dive bar, pretty busy even at 10pm-midnight mid week. Apparently if you have red hair drinks are 1/2 price anytime. The band was playing old school country, which was fine with me. Teeny tiny space for dancing, but people were making it work.
