: Metered Street
Know Before You Go
: Though Trusty's is guaranteed to provide a good time and some nostalgic childhood memories, it's the only bar within a predominantly residential multi-block radius, so plan to stay a while. The slightly off-the-grid Pennsylvania SE location is easily accessible by the Potomac Metro, however.
Where to Sit
: The second floor patio, across from the Bus Bar, is slightly enclosed for protection against the elements. It gets crowded in the spring and summer, but is no doubt the best place to get some fresh air and enjoy your drinks.
: Nothing on the menu is over $8 and drinks run on the cheap side, but guests can shave an extra buck off each beverage if they go between 4pm and 7pm on weekdays. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, pitchers of Bud Light are $10.
: Trusty's doesn't have a lot and most of its patrons are locals, but a hint to those who drive: The lot across the street at NY Pizza's has a capacity of more than 50 cars.
: Bus Bar was designed by local artist Lee T. Wheeler, who also designed the D.C.-themed miniature golf course at H Street Country Club.
