Best Place to Play Pinball
3720 14th St. NW, (202) 723-0502
Pinball, as a pastime and as a culture, is making a comeback across the country, and D.C. is no exception. In the past several years, the number of bars that have introduced pinball machines to their premises has increased and not just for aesthetic value. Hell, there’s even a DMV Pinball League where pinheads compete for money, prizes, and bragging rights. This resurgence started at Lyman’s Tavern, which opened in 2014 with a handful of machines. Since then, the place has added a number of games, and other bars—including staples Black Cat and Meridian Pint—have followed suit. But Lyman’s still does it best.
