  • the roof deck here is an acceptable way to spend your after work hours. avoid on weekends
  • Mediocre food served by underwhelming staff
  • Local 16 has bar and table seating with a balcony overlooking 14th Street.
  • I really like this bar. Great rooftop, lively. Gets VERY crowded on Fri/Sat but where doesn't it? I always have a good time dancing here.
  • Try the VeeV Basil Gimlet. Its amazing!!
  • Come check me out on Saturday nights. I DJ.. it's a great time.
  • Have a drink on the roof - good times.
  • Don't try going here on the weekend, too crowded
  • SERVICE SUCKS!!!! Avoid at all costs if possible.
  • Some of the worst service around.
  • The Bitches say A-! A pleasant ambiance, great service, affordable prices and delicious food. We hope they snazz up the French toast and add a few more brunch options.
  • Very friendly staff
  • This place gets packed. But it gets packed for a reason! The rooftop is the best in the area, and the dance floor with DJ gets things going. Local 16 sets the bar for U street
  • Great rooftop
  • On 07/21 I went to a happy hour at Local 16 to toast the beginning of a new NGO. Thanks Mike Silberman for inviting me. It was kind of awesome.
  • Fabulous drunch on Sunday. Great food and you can switch between bottomless drinks (Bellini's, Bloody Marys, Mimosas...), you're not limited to one kind.
  • From the bouncers to the bartenders service here is miserable. Avoid.
  • DJ MIGGLE BRINGS IT ON URBAN NIGHT! Order a peroni and enjoy the scene.
  • Joe is the slowest server ever.
  • Bitches who Brunch like Fuji apple fritters for brunch, "a spectacular blend of the tart apple and lemon flavors paired with the sweet richness of the crme and vanilla."
