Pho DC is an interesting little spot in Chinatown.  The bar section where the happy hour takes place is quite small.  There are only around 10 barstools, and maybe 3 tiny 2 person tables in the bar section.  However the beer prices aren't terrible and they have plenty of interesting drinks to choose from.

This is a very cozy spot where you can hear the conversations of the people in the barstools next to you.  It doesn't feel very packed and there isn't a crowd of people standing behind your seat like at a typical bar.  Cramped but comfortable.  Not bad for a pregame hangout.

I would think this place would be good for a casual meeting.  You won't have a table so it would be more of a social & drinking atmosphere.  However aside from the appetizers listed above, the restaurant also has...wait for it...waiiiit...Pho!  I honestly refuse to eat pho because it scares me.  Therefore I can not accurately describe how this place compares to other places that serve the same Vietnamese cuisine.

If you aren't into broad noodles or soups, they also have some meat items, beef, pork, chicken, shrimp.

This picture shows shrimp stuffed in a condom?  The shrimp wrap I believe.  It was ok.

While Pho DC is nice, I didn't really like sitting at a the bar in a place like that.  The main reason to go here would be if you liked the food, are in a small group of 1-3 people, you can get barstools, and want to drink some random drinks.  A good place to stop by for 1 drink and then be on your way... Pho' Sho'

There weren't any TVs so don't expect to see any games if you are one of those late to arrive fans...
