I guess I’m too old

…cuz it’s too loud. A number of us went to check out the bar at Liberty Tavern last night after having dinner around the corner. It’s a lovely space, or at least the bar is – I didn’t wander upstairs to see the dining room. However it is noisy as all get out. Maybe that’s an unfair criticism of anyplace on a Saturday night but after about thirty minutes I found my throat getting a little hoarse trying to talk. On the other hand, the bar seemed smoke-free – no idea if that’s a policy there or just a co-incidence but it was a pleasure, and the only thing I missed when we walked down the block to O’Sullivans.

    DC is smoke-free…too bad Clarendon VA is…well, it’s in VIRGINIA. Why would one of the biggest tobacco states ban smoking?

    DC may be smokefree, Virginia is not. Virginia is, coincidentally, juxtaposed to DC. Shocking that we might cover more than just the few square miles.

    It was darn loud in there, wasn’t it. And the bar was pretty slammed. Hope it’s just due to the opening week crush.

    I wasn’t a big fan of it either Don, I still haven’t been to O’Sullivans (Tom we need to rectify that) and headed back up to Four Courts, the walk probably sobered me up.

    Is there any bar in Clarendon that’s NOT ridiculously loud? DC places tend to be loud anyway thanks to the region’s love affair with pubs, which tend to be wood-paneled, but Eleventh and O’Sullivan’s are two of the loudest places around.
