DC bars with trivia

What’s even better than gathering together with friends in a cozy pub near Tenley View?

Gathering with friends at a DC bar with trivia and not worrying about what you’re wearing. These are some of the most casual bars and pubs in town, and we’re proud to have them close to home.

Get your clever pub trivia team names ready and head out to one of these pubs and bars near Tenley View soon!

1. Kitty O’Shea’s Trivia

Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m.

[Directions to Kitty O’Sheas]

Add trivia to the list of reasons why Kitty O’Shea’s is one of the best neighborhood bars with trivia in the country, if not the world (OK, that might be pushing it). Trivia Kings is one of the best quiz hosts in the area, and they post winners on their page regularly. Challenge the current weekly winners, the Herpetologists, in a battle of wits that could end in prizes for you and your team. On top of that, you’ll enjoy specials just for participants.

2. Nanny O’Brien’s Irish Pub Trivia

Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m.

[Directions to Nanny O’Brien’s]

Season champions on the Trivia Kings board include “I’m with Sloopid,” “Nate’s Mohawk,” and “Turd Ferguson.” While we can’t tell you that you’ll beat every team at trivia, we can say you have a pretty good chance at beating their names. While you’re at Nanny O’Briens, you’ll enjoy special deals on food and drinks like their mouthwatering wings, and might even win a prize or two.

3. Jake’s Boiler Room Trivia

Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m.

[Directions to Jake’s Boiler Room]

Just when you thought that Tenleytown DC only has Irish-themed pubs and bars, along comes Jake’s all-American Boiler Room. By the way, it looks like Trivia Kings has taken over the town, as they’re hosting trivia here, too (we’re OK with that.) Head to Jake’s Boiler Room Trivia on Wednesday nights to enjoy a fun evening with friends and coworkers.

The vibe here is similar to a “man cave,” so you’ll probably want to change out of that suit and tie into something more comfortable after work.

5. Tenley Bar and Grill

Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.

[Directions to Tenley Bar and Grill]

Trying to decide whether to go to Tenley Bar and Grill’s Trivia or Jake’s Boiler Room? We vote that you test all of the above to see which fits your group best. We’ll give you a tip, though: Tenley Bar and Grill offers the usual prizes and gift cards, but on top of that, they offer ½ price wine bottles for trivia participants. If you have a few vinos on your team, this is the spot for you!
