This dive bar, located half a block from the U Street Metro, opened June 11th, 2011 and is still going strong today.  General Manager Tolga Erbatur is also part of the culinary team as a chef and partner in the business.  The bar is known for its 90’s playlist and hipster vibe where patrons can scribble on the blackboard walls.  The food is good, the drinks are cheap, and the atmosphere is far from pretentious at this local bar.

Besides serving fish and chips, they also offer a lamb burger, nachos, chili cheese fries, fried oreos and s’mores pop tarts, just to name a few menu favorites.  Their drink menu includes items such as beer, liquor, and beer and shot combinations if you’re feeling adventurous.   So if you’re in the DC area over the holidays and you’re looking for a dive bar, visit The Codmother to try some of their delicious food and drinks before you start your post-holiday diet!
