Duke V. UNC, Georgetown V. Syracuse Games Tonight

by Sophie Pyle · February 8, 2012

There are two huge college games on tonight, and with college pride and basketball fans all over DC, you won't want to miss out on the good times and smack talk. Here are the best bets for running into alums and fans that will be watching the games tonight:

The New Town Hall

2340 Wisconsin Avenue NW This bar is in Glover Park, which is home to TONS of alums from UNC, Duke, and Georgetown. They don't appear to be taking sides in the Duke v. UNC game, but they are rooting for Georgetown over Syracuse.

Mason Inn

2408 Wisconsin Avenue NW $10 Bud Light pitchers. This will also be packed with Glover Parkers, but is unlikely that co-owner Fritz Brogan will be letting anyone in wearing orange.


The Tombs

1226 26th Street NW This is a PRETTY obvious place to watch the game if you actually are a Hoya, but if you are a clueless fan, this is where everyone will be. They don't even have drink specials during the game because they already know it'll be packed with boozy fans. You can get a $3 Bud Light or $4 Bud Light Premium after 10pm.

Third Edition

1281 Wisconsin Avenue NW Another obvious place to catch the game if you are a Hoya fan.


Sign Of The Whale

1825 M Street NW This bar by Farragut Square is THE place to be tonight if you are a Syracuse fan.


Rocket Bar

714 7th Street NW Even though a biglittle part of me wanted to send Duke fans to a made up bar on the Three Sisters in the Potomac, you Blue Devils picked a really fun place to watch the game together at Rocket Bar.

Ventnor Sports Cafe

2411 18th Street NW This is a UNC/Syracuse bar in Adams Morgan. You might spot Duke and Georgetown stickers in their urinals.
