It’s been a little while since we at DC City Blog reviewed a bar so it was fortunate that a work function took me to Rocket Bar this past week. Like most other cities, DC has some pretty clear social divisions that manifest in the different venue circuits that people in DC choose. Rocket Bar is clearly on the same circuit as other popular bar venues in DC like Lucky Bar and the Big Hunt.
Cost – $
Service – B
The service is pretty straight-up at Rocket Bar. I ordered a round of drinks and was served in a matter of minutes.
Food – ?
Decor – C
To be completely honest, I don’t really think there was anything that stood out about the design of Rocket Bar apart from the pictures of Rockets on the wall.
Feel – C
Rocket Bar should be on the list of stuff white people like. As you can tell by the amount of effort I have just put into this review, Rocket Bar isn’t my favorite place in the world. If you are in that crowd then I can see why you might want to visit the venue and I’m hoping someone comments on this review and helps me understand what the appeal to the place is.
Rocket Bar is located at 717 7th St. They can be reached at (202) 628-7665.
