We stopped in for their late-night amateur stand-up comedy with friends who have been here before for this very thing. The place is really run down and absolutely nasty. The drinks were just OK, definitely a “dive bar” feel to the place and the drinks....More

We went to see a comedy show at the big hunt in the underground comedy club. It was very small but made it more personable. We drove from n.y. to see a specific comedian here. The bathroom on the other were gross! But can't expect...More

Pretty decent bar. Enjoyed the booth-style seating suitable for a handful of friends for an intimate conversation. Prompt service. A decent selection of beers on tap.

Near the metro station in Dupont Circle, the Big Hunt surprised with really good food. They have an excellent Black Bean Chili and the burgers were juicy. They have many types of craft beer. The beer isn't cheap but the food was very good. It...More
