    A pirate-themed pub located in Silver Spring is worth the trip if you're looking for a cool atmosphere.

    Ahoy, mates! A pirate-themed pub and grill in downtown Silver Spring is stealing local bar business. Located in the heart of the city, Piratz Tavern features an eclectic combination of Caribbean-inspired cuisine, international music, freak-show styled performances and a booty-adorned décor fit for the likes of Jack Sparrow.

    The two-room establishment is worked by a wait staff dressed in ruffled shirts and wench style lace up skirts. The backdrop does the costumes justice with wood-paneled walls ornamented with knives, pistols and lanterns. A set of double doors leads out to the enclosed patio which is open year round.

    Friday and Saturday night performances rotate between Irish-folk bands, belly dancers, fire breathers, fire dancers, and tarot card readers. The Pirates of the Caribbean-theme appeals to more than the adolescent, the pub is drawing a solid happy hour and after dinner crowd. Pub-goers credit the off beat theme, varied performances, reasonable prices, specials and Grog (a potent Rum concocted of three rums and a Jamaican spice-that packs a punch) to their continued patronage.

    Fri. 11:30 a.m. – 2 a.m.
    Sat. 12:30 p.m. – 2 a.m.

    8402 Georgia Ave.
