Bullfeathers Reopens in Capitol Hill

Bullfeathers has reopened at 410 1st St SE. But they’re not taking your old coupons:

According to We Love DC:

“Bullfeathers “closed” in July of last year in order to undergo a complete renovation. The Capitol Hill mainstay is now owned and operated by the team behind the popular Tunnicliff’s Tavern, Ulah Bistro & Stoney’s.”

Bullfeathers’ Web site says:

Located in Capitol Hill is a bar and grill guaranteed to offer you a good time. Bullfeathers is rooted back to our nation’s 26th president Teddy Roosevelt, who didn’t find it appropriate to use profane language in public so he coined the phrase “Bullfeathers!”

This neighborhood bar caters to the young crowd of people working on Capitol Hill. Interns as well as other employees flock to Bullfeathers to grab a drink in this spot. Bullfeathers offers DC politicians a lengthy bar and gathering space to throw a few back. Like our mentor, T.R, we find that good food and drink with friends makes the everyday “Bullfeathers” more tolerable. It is our stated goal to take some of the edge off, take some of the “Bullfeathers” out of life and put a little more fun back in!

Still some mixed reviews on Yelp. Anyone check them out yet? If so, would you say it’s better, worse or the same?

  1. I love that building.

  2. Can’t possibly be worse than the previous iteration. I’ll check it out come Nats season. I hear they have 20 or 30 taps, so that’s a good thing.

  3. It’s not really that close to the stadium.

  4. Easy .8 mile walk from 1st and D SE. I pass it on my way from the Hill to the Park on my regular spring/summer post-work strolls to games.

  5. I hate when they make things inconvient for me!

  6. It’s not really that *far* from the stadium.

  7. That would depend on your definition of far. It’s certainly not close enough to be a destination for too many stadium-goers. There are closer options, albeit few.

  8. It’s closer to the Park than Barracks Row – which is pre/post-game destination for many fans. I definitely recommend it for people coming in on the Orange and Blue lines, then you don’t have to transfer to the Green at L’Enfant (which can be a pain).

  9. was in there last week. good burgers, and something like 30 drafts. Can’t speak for the old place, but it looks pretty nice in there now.

  10. Coupons aren’t the same as gift certificates. Gift certificates are credits, it’s money already paid to an establishment. Coupons are discounts that can be applied to a price.

  11. I won’t ever go there because I had a HORRIBLE experience at Tunnicliff’s years ago and have made it a point to never, ever eat at a place owned by those people. I am a fairly laid back person and can handle most things, but they go in my Hall of Fame for bad service in the number one position.

  12. Out of curiosity, what happened?

  13. they spelled inconvenience wrong
