Best Place for German Beer and Kitsch
1331 H St. NW; (202) 347-5732
Old Europe is too tacky, Café Berlin is too authentic, Biergarten Haus hasn’t opened by press time, and Blob’s Park is way out in Jessup. So where should you go for the perfect amount of lager beer and kitsch? Try Café Mozart, hidden behind a German deli on the first floor of an office building near Metro Center. It has three beers on tap, served in half and full liters, as well as a handful of bottles. The list usually includes a German pilsner, a Hefeweiss Dunkel, and a seasonal like Spaten Optimator or Hofbrau Oktoberfest. Happy hour prices go all night on Tuesdays, and Sylvia is there with her accordion playing traditional German folk and drinking songs. You’ll be shouting “Ein, zwei, g’suffa” like a tourist in Munich in no time.
