'Best of Foursquare' Guide Revealed; Town Hall, Ebbitt, Smith Point, Air & Space, Mason Inn Make D.C. List

By Daniel Swartz on February 5, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The votes are in, well, check-ins anyway, and it turns out that being ranked one of the douchiest bars in Washington failed to put a dent in the overall popularity of places like Town Hall, Smith Point, and Public Bar.

Georgetown's Smith Point is the District's tenth most popular dive bar.

Such real world vindication comes as location-based social networking giant Foursquare released its first 'Best Of' guide to 30 of the country's largest cities, including, of course, the District.

The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum is the top ranked museum.

Compiled from a data silo of more than 3 billion check-ins, likes, and tips, from more than 30 million users worldwide, the showcase tracks everything from the most popular dive and sports bars to steakhouses and pizzerias to bookstores and museums.

Glover Park's Town Hall claims bragging rights as to being the city's second best overall bar.

Most of the winners aren't surprising, with Toki Underground claiming the top spot in the 'Asian Food' category, the 9:30 Club the best 'Music Venue', and the National Air and Space Museum the best both overall 'Museum' and 'History Museum'.

Similarly, Glover Park also boasts D.C.'s seventh best sports bar with Mason Inn a neighborhood staple.
