Honestly I thought it was dying but a lot of new stuff is opening there too. 90 Second Pizza, Taco Bell Cantina, Chick-fil-A, some new eSports center attached to the arena, the Guy Fieri restaurant, Tom's Watch Bar, etc

Hope Rocket Bar stays for a while. Believe it’s the only dive bar left in the area. Been interested in Howl at the Moon and will have to try a night out there. Oddly, I miss Hooters. Never stepped in one, but it was one of those quirky places that gave the area character. Now it’s got the homeless and such.

Anecdotally Rocket Bar still seems to pack em in on the weekends any time I'm there. Always loved it because it does a great job satisfying a wide variety of people in my friend group. You've got the divey elements, but it's also a friendly atmosphere. They'll play sports on TV, but they also play good music. It's easy to meet new people if you want, or you can just hang out with your group and play shuffleboard in the back.

Probably one of the two only places in DC with a shuffleboard in a bar.

There’s at least three

Maybe even 10 per Yelp, given you’d go to all 10 or even half. Personally, I live in that place called NOVA and work near Gallery Place so only a few matter in my local.
