    This long-standing bar still manages to bring in a crowd that would make mentor Teddy Roosevelt proud.

    Serving the House of Representatives and their friends since 1980, Bullfeathers still draws the political crowd in droves. Their Monday through Saturday happy hour is frequented by Capitol Hill staffers, eager to grab a bite and exhange office gossip. The bar's happy hour includes food specials from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. and drink specials 4 - 8 p.m.

    The menu's ample and varied selection of food may be the reason many are willing to brave the buzzing crowds and long wait times. In warmer months, patrons can spill outside for some extra space and to enjoy Bullfeather's outdoor cafe. Bullfeathers also offers catering for private parties or fundraisers, for those looking to bring the menu to them. Their catering service can serve anywhere from 50 to 250 people.

    Confused by the name? Theodore Roosevelt, one of America's most colorful & well-loved politicians, was also quite the man when it came to turning a phrase. When faced with frustrations or patently absurd situations, Teddy would boom out "Bullfeathers!" He did appreciate good manners & knew that "Bull____" was unacceptable in proper company.

    Teddy Roosevelt always relished the challenges & fullness of life. In this regard, the restaurant and bar tries to combine good food & drink with friends to make the everyday "Bullfeathers" more tolerable. It is their stated goal to "take some of the edge off, take some of the "Bullfeathers" out of life & put a little more fun back in!"
