Additional Information
Since opening its doors in 1969, The Third Edition has been serving Washington, DC locals, tourists and students in the heart of Georgetown for over 34 years. It has become a staple for this historic neighborhood by providing the perfect stop for a quick bite while shopping on weekends to a favorite visiting spot among visiting celebrities and Washington, DC VIPs.

To this day The Third Edition has maintained its original focus on serving seasonal, American comfort food in its signature casual setting. The classic atmosphere with its dark wood paneling, brass rails and green and gold facade is a comforting and familiar sight.

Not only was its main bar feature in the filming of St. Elmo's Fire, The Third Edition is the perfect accent to Georgetown's historic charm. You can expect consistent service and quality cuisine upon every visit. Prepared with only the freshest ingredients by skilled culinary professionals, The Third Edition menu is further complemented by its tasteful wine list of over 50 selections. One of the best restaurants in Washington, DC, we invite you to sit back, relax and experience Georgetown's dining and nightlife tradition for yourselves.

    Very trendy place for college kids and people coming back to the city to visit friends. This is not a beer bar by any means (you'll find bud light and the likes here). I would not recommend it if you are looking for a place to try the latest craft brews.

    Good location, but wait-staff and bartenders are horrible. Very expensive compared to other, nicer bars in Georgetown. I would highly recommend people avoid this place. DC/Georgetown has so much more to offer.

    A good spot in the heart of georgtown with an outdoor area and several bars to serve patrons. More club oriented with a lower downsairs bar atmosphere. Would like to see more beers added on tap, as most patrons stick to mix drinks and light bottles.
