About

Gaslight Tavern is a 1920’s-inspired gathering place that celebrates the pleasures of delicious food, great drink, and lively conversation. Located in DC’s historic U Street Corridor, Gaslight Tavern is a true neighborhood spot – a place where regulars and strangers alike can come together and feel at home.  

With an Old World inspired tavern menu and a beverage program steeped in pre-prohibition classics, we take our food and drink seriously and recognize how important they are in fostering community and connection.
