Neat Neighborhood Find: The Hitching Post

I have been meaning to write about this fantastic restaurant bar/restaurant for ages. Located at 200 Upshur St, right across the street from El Limeno, The Hitching Post is that intimate neighborhood bar you have been looking for. It probably seats 25 on a very good day. But what really sets this place apart is the atmosphere. I had the opportunity to chat with the owners who were as nice and welcoming as you could ever wish for. (Ed note: I will profile them for an upcoming “profile of a Petworthian”) It turns out the Hitching Post is celebrating its 40th anniversary! It is an absolute must that you check out their juke box. If you like Charlie Bird, Vic Damone, Marvin Gaye, Mingus, The Four Freshmen – you are really in for a treat. The beers are cold and the portions are gigantic. If you are on a diet it is probably not the place for you. Even if you are not hungry it is a great place for a cold beer. The conversations are always lively. This is the “Cheers” of Petworth. There is no pretension here. There are cold Budweisers, sports banners, good conversations and a great juke box. What else do you need?

A side note: I spoke with two nice guys from the neighborhood who tipped me to a rumor that an Ethiopian restaurant is in the works for Georgia Ave. and Allison St. stay tuned…
