Perhaps Tiffany Tavern's most noteworthy distinction from other live music venues is that it is one of the last places in the Washington DC area that has live bluegrass every weekend. The atmosphere is unpretentious and the staff is so courteous and friendly you might think you're in a small town southern restaurant. Burger connoisseurs can put the bar's claim of "some of the best burgers in DC" to the test. There is no cover charge to get in. That, along with Tiffany Tavern's reasonably priced menu, makes it a good option for an inexpensive night out in Old Town Alexandria.
