Nommin’ Out: The Dickson

A discreet multi-level building with almost no signage, the Dickson Wine Bar is a gem to add to your happy hour musings.  Located on 9th and U St, it’s small with a super cool interior.  The walls are lined with hundreds of dark green, blue, and brown recycled wine bottles, and the cozy bar level has cute high top tables that fit parties of four.  I sat in the bar along the window on one of several high top seats, allowing for sidewalk views and a direct line of vision to Nellie’s Sports Bar (sidewalk stalking may or may not be a blog motif).  Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 5-7pm, and boasts $5 house wines (red, white, & sparkling) and select brews.  Pictured above is an appetizer from their dinner menu: $6 carrot dip with capers and feta, served with warm bread.  This was the perfect accompaniment to my house white wine, and the ideal size for a twosome.  And speaking of twosomes, the Dickson is a GREAT date place.  You can pick a level depending on your desired surroundings (i.e. bar level you will be sitting 10 inches from the next couple, whereas the top level is a bit more spread out) and its dark with great aesthetics.  Snag a companion and get there!
