Last fall, Dupont Circle welcomed a new bar that is full of fun and games. Board Room, brought to you by the same bar group that owns Buffalo Billiards and Laughing Man Tavern, offers a more playful venue for happy hour or weekend shenanigans.
Take your pick from 20-plus games including classics such as Monopoly and Yatzee and nostalgia invokers like Hungry, Hungry Hippos, Clue, and Sorry! Or get rowdy at your table with great group games like Jenga, Scattergories and the increasingly popular Cards Against Humanity. Whatever your suits your board game fancy, Board Room probably has it.
Naturally, all of that lively competition will make you thirsty. Board Room boasts a 20-beer draft line as well as bottled and canned beer, handcrafted cocktails and a humble wine list. They even have an in-house crusher for you fresh fruit enthusiasts. You won’t find a kitchen in Board Room so don’t ask for a menu.
When you are ready for a bite to eat, feel free to order in. Flippin’ Pizza, located a few doors down, offers a 25% discount to Board Room patrons and Dupont’s upcoming SmashBurger will be in close proximity.
Games are available to rent for as low as $1. Board Room hosts happy hour Monday-Friday from 4pm-7pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12pm-7pm where they offer $4 rail drinks, house wine, and selected beers.
