The Marriott's at 700 Aliceanna Street
DC Hound in need of recommendations for a local watering hole with decent food - ideally where we can rent a room for a small reception. Or with a large enough bar that we can bring 20 - 30 people and congregate in the same area.
Not froo-froo, nor a dump...something with atmosphere and local character that will entice conference goers to get out of the hotel after a long day at a trade show.
Preferrably within walking distance of the Marriott, or a short cab ride.
Fells Point might qualify. My first choice would have been the Wharf Rat (the only bar I know in the area) but I don't think my boss would approve ; )
