***note: please see below for an important note about weekend evening rentals*** We are a new neighborhood bar in Park View. We prioritize contributing to our community by keeping our prices affordable, creating a comfortable and welcoming environment for people of all backgrounds and identities, and doing whatever we can to ensure that every customer has great experience during each visit. And we added a new back patio last summer to allow for outdoor events that can be safer in the pandemic! We love hosting events of all kinds, whether its a birthday party, wedding reception, baby shower, work happy hour, volunteer meet up, watch party, or any other reason people need a comfy place to gather. Our normal capacity is ~50-60 people, but under COVID restrictions, we can only accommodate up to 25 people (NOTE: all customers must agree to abide by all other COVID restrictions for bars & restaurants in DC). We offer specially designed cocktails of our own creation featuring fresh cardamom, ginger, cucumber, mint, basil, rosemary and other exciting flavors, plus wine, bubbly, and a slate of rotating beers that customers can help select. Don't drink? Don't worry! We’re have tasty non-alcoholic options too. Hungry? We have fresh food options throughout the week, including tasty tacos and quesadillas (beef, chicken, shrimp and cauliflower), plus shrimp ceviche, fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, homemade salsas, beef empanadas and Philly cheese steaks. Details: When you choose Smitty's for your event, we are happy to offer: - the whole outdoor bar patio for your use - drink specials for your group - decorating the space as you'd like - control of the music - specialized food menu where possible ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** - every guest must adhere to DC's current COVID rules for bars and restaurants, including social distancing and wearing masks where required. Those that do not may be asked to leave. - indoor access is only allowed to enter/exit and to use the restroom - all parties must include some food orders (per DC's COVID requirements) - a bar minimum will apply for certain days/times - open bars are possible (the customer must start a tab to cover open bar charges) a 20% gratuity may be automatically applied to all tabs during events - outside alcohol is not permitted per DC laws - outside food is potentially permissible, but may require a $200 fee - a cleaning fee of $100 may be charged if there is an excessive mess ***Weekend Evening Rentals*** We are only allows semi-private reservations for Friday and Saturday evening rentals. This is because we are trying not to close off our space to our loyal customers/regulars who have supported us through these hard times. Therefore, all Fri and Sat evening rentals will be: - semi-private (have a major portion of the back patio reserved for your party) - rental fees are much lower than they normally are - max capacity is 25 people. DC may allow us to increase the number of people allowed in our space, and we have plans to expand our back patio even more - which would enable us to host larger events. Until then, we are happy to host private events any other day of the week, including daytime Tue - Sun and evenings Sun, Tue, Wed and Thu. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thanks for your understanding. Kaleab

Cheyenne R. booked an event for 20 people
Late review. We hosted a small birthday gathering at the height of the pandemic. The owner had a mix up with the schedule and thus the bar was opened later that our agreed time. As a result, the owner provided us with 2 additional hours.
Marco R. booked a wedding reception for 25 people
Our experience was great, thanks to Dave and Kaleab we were able to host our wedding reception in this difficult moment of the pandemic. The outdoor patio was very nice furnished and perfect for our needs. Food and cocktails fully satisfied our expectations and both Dave and Kaleab have responded to our requests. Definitely a yes!
