This is where I found Adams/Morgan exceptionally diverse. We'd been to Jack Rose before going into The Blaguard and, the two places couldn't be more of a contrast. The Blaguard reminded me of a true college scene. With the atmosphere, demographic, music choices and service (or lack thereof). A fun environment for those young enough - or who still feel... More

I like this bar. The atmosphere is nice with some used people ! Happy hour is also very nice and the choice of beers is large. A good place for a real ambiance :)

We stayed in Washington DC for a conference and we always look for small bars/restaurants to try. We looked up a few places and ended up at The Blaguard on 18th street, NW in DC. This bar is under new ownership and we went on a Monday evening! They have 1/2 burgers that were delicious and the best fried pickles... More

I went to The Blaguard with some work colleagues last night. We wanted a casual atmosphere where we could watch the World Series. The bar had a great beer selection, reliably decent and casual food, and a great atmosphere. We were the oldest people in the bar, and it was loud, but it was absolutely worth it. Service was great,... More

Was looking for a place to rest and have a beer and expected this to be your typical Irish pub. Not the case. Great beer selection, nice owner, and nice atmosphere. I would love to have a neighborhood bar like this near me.

Tried Blaguard for the first time at lunch - newly opening for lunch as of last week. Great selection of sandwiches and, yes! Fish and Chips. Delicious. Good prices, good service

For 7 years, Blaguard was my neighborhood bar. Now that I've moved to London, it's probably the thing I miss about DC the most. Nothing about the place is extraordinary, but it's just the mix of atmosphere, bartenders, and people that make it such a great neighborhood bar. Good beer selection, good shots, and decent food - go for Sunday... More
