The 14th Street NW corridor is better known for $14 cocktails than cheap drinks. But it turns out you can actually get a can of beer for $1.75 in the trendy dining neighborhood. Red Light—yes, the cocktail and dessert bar whose name references 14th Street’s past reputation for prostitution—launches a happy hour on April 28 with PBR for less than two bucks. In addition, wines by the glass, beers, cocktails on tap, a daily featured dessert, and savory snacks will be half-priced from 4 to 7 p.m. everyday and 11 p.m. to close Sunday through Wednesday.
Technically, though, Red Light does not have the cheapest beer on 14th Street. If you head further north, past the small-plate seekers and hip hotspots, you can find $1 Stroh’s and Natty Boh at Red Derby every day from 5 to 8 p.m.
