Sat next to the beer editor of Washington DCís City Paper on the invitation-only pre-opening of the Dupont Circle branch of Birreria Paradiso. Has 12 taps and one cask, plus 180 bottles, well-chosen by Greg, the beer manager from their Georgetown branch. Same great pizza as the Georgetown branch. Bar and restaurant are all on one level, decent enough set up. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Best selection and prices in the district, and only a block fro the Dupont Circle metro. Easy to see why they call it Paradise!

Visited July 2011.

Did a bit of a walking tour through DC and ended here. It just so happened to be during their IPA festival which made some people very happy. They were doing flights of four so I got to try a number of the Mikkeller single hop IPAs as well as a few other random beers. The downside was that since it was a themed tap lineup there wasnít much variety. The other ratings of this place make it look so good that I feel like I should come back on a regular night. The pizza was good, as it should be with a name like that. A bit pricey though. Service was attentive but didnít say much.

comfortable bar seating, friendly staff, talkative patrons, saturated with high quality taps and bottles. prices are high but this is a place where itís worth it to spend a little extra. you simply have to afford yourself the pleasure. the more of these places that open the tougher the competition becomes, and thatís a good thing for us. bars of this quality should be standard in every major US city, but sadly that is not the case yet and we sometimes have to put up with conditions and experiences that we know are less than stellar. not here. quite honestly the friendly nature of human beings in this establishment, the lighting, design and decor, reminds me of birrificio italiano, which exists and thrives in the small italian town of lurago marinone, population 2,200. incredible.

This place can get pretty loud on a Saturday night what with the exposed brick and the low ceilings. Fortunately I was able to elbow my way to a couple of stools at the bar. Besides the noise, the crowd tends to be in the 20ís. The people next to me were having a philsopohical discussion so inane it would embarass a 5 year old. Clearly this is a place that worships and loves beer. They had over a dozen taps, including a cask, and they were all solid. The pizza was fantastic and the bartender was very knowledgeable about beer although you get the sense that they get a lot of posers who like the scene but know nothing about beer. He kept warning me about the attributes of each beer. "Hey that Saison is kind of tart." "Fantastic! Canít wait to taste it." I did enjoy my experience there but Iím getting old so I think the next time I return it will be durning the day when itís less crowded and people are quieter.

A nice DC watering hole, and smaller than the other two locations, but the only one with an outdoor seating area. The service was great, with Greg (beer guy) bringing in some new NC beers from his recent trip south. The pizza was great as always and the prices are par for the course in DC.

We stayed at Palomar hotel which is conveniently located a minute away from the Dupont Circle pizzeria paradiso. I guess both venues are fairly similar in that the bottle lists seem to be substantially the same. The good news though is that the draught lists were entirely different when we came across both addresses on a same day. I was leaning more toward the Dupont Circle one one myself on that day, but that must be happenstance. Pizza is presumably the same, but we have not had it here and again, the atmosphere is more restaurant-like than pub-like which is for the better and for the worse. Good spot, especially if youíre willing to lay the bucks for rarer bottles, but not a world beater.

My favorite happy hour in DC. Come here from 5-7 on Tuesday or Wednesday for half off all drafts! But you can only get the happy hour deal at the bar or standing around the bar. Different than the Georgetown location. Darrel, who is the usual bartender, is awesome. Very knowledgeable, honest, and a cool dude. If a beer sucks on tap, heíll tell you straight up, "It blows." Bottle selection is fairly extensive with Cantillon, De Molen, Mikkeller, KBS, Lost Abbey, random Italian and Danish/Norwegian crafts. There are 12 taps and always one cask that rotate fairly quickly- maybe not as quickly as the Georgetown location. Look up the super up to date tap list online before you go at http://www.eatyourpizza.com/menu/birre/

Visited early evening on a Tuesday with Travlr. Relatively small crowded spot just off of Dupont Circle. They had a great happy hour going, and the bar was full of happy people enjoying great beers and tasty pizza. The draft selection was really solid, had probably 8-9 beers I wanted to try. The bottle selection was pretty vast for a place its size. They did sample sizes as well, which was nice. The pizza was very tasty. Service was solid, all in all this was great place to grab a beer.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

A nice pizzeria with 7 to 9 pizzas, 13 taps, and extensive bottle selection. Service is rapid, attentive, and friendly. The pizzas looked good. Got a pesto and goat cheese, with honeyed oil and brown dough....not the best. Still, a must in DC.

A handy spot just off Dupont Circle. Decent beer selection. Very popular. Tried to go on Friday evening but the wait was too long so went for an early Saturday lunch instead and got seated no problem. Not the cheapest but this is central DC. There is a quite small bar area but itís more of a restaurant than a place to go just for a drink. Excellent pizzas and a nice vibe. The guy who seated us but wasnít our server obviously spotted a beer geek in the house and came over for a beer chat a couple of times when he wasnít busy. Definitely a worthwhile addition to the area.
