Sports Spots in Washington, DC
When you think about Washington, DC, the first few things that come to mind are, more than likely, the president, the government, the monuments … you get the point. It's because of those things, and because DC is such a transient city, that it makes for such an interesting melting pot of sports fans from all over the country. So whether you're looking to attend a game or just to watch with your friends, there's a place for every sports fanatic in DC.
Best Places to Watch the Game
Located in Penn Quarter, right across the street from the Verizon Center, home of the NBA's Washington Wizards and the NHL's Washington Capitals, Redline Gastrolounge offers an expansive upstairs sports-watching mecca. Is it the 40-plus flat screens? Maybe the 11-foot projection screen? Is it the unique, built-in table taps — similar to the ones at Stats in Atlanta — where you can indulge in your favorite beer right at your table? The correct answer is D, all the above. From watching your favorite NFL team on DirecTV's Sunday Ticket and staying on top of college sports with ESPN Gameplan to watching your favorite player hit a home run on MLB Extra Innings, Redline offers the ultimate sports-watching experience in DC.
More Than Just Football
If baseball's your game, make your way to the green line (accessible at the Chinatown metro station), and a short ride to the Navy Yard-Ballpark station will put you within walking distance of the Nats' stadium, one of baseball's newest venues and home of the Washington Nationals. Even FedEx Field, home of Washington's professional football team, is accessible via the metro now. Travel along the blue line or the all-new silver line to the Largo Town Center station, and in just under a mile (seriously, 0.9 miles), all the tailgating and football fun you could ever want awaits.
