The liquor license placard for Free State says:

“Small, new neighborhood Tavern serving craft beer, cocktails, wine, and pre-packaged snacks. Requesting an Entertainment Endorsement to offer live entertainment. Total Occupancy Load is 120.”

And upstairs is where Bantam King is coming from the owners of Daikaya. Standby for more Ramen and Japanese Fried Chicken soon!

  • Wah wah

    Is this an Irish bar? No traitor like a free stater!

  • DF

    Free State? As in the same name as one of the best brew pubs in the country?!
    I love DC and all, but I really miss living in Lawrence, KS sometimes, and Free State was a big reason!

      Double rock chalk!

    Is it Maryland themed? Maryland is known as The Free State.

    “Free State”? Is this a Maryland-themed bar?

    Pre-package snacks make it sound like airline food. Yay – peanuts and pretzels for everyone!

  • INWDC

    I like that they use food trays as “wallpaper”

    I’m sorry, but I already support a Free State Brewery, in Kansas:

    Adding another would just confuse my simple mind.

    Am I the only one who thinks of the gas station? Yes, probably.
