The Ugly Mug: A Brief History

Located on Barracks Row by Eastern Market on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, the restaurant and sports bar has seen 12 years of serving delicious food and drinks to everyone from politicians to tourists. We serve a pub inspired menu created by Chef Alex McCoy of Food Network Star and a local restauranteur, and we also have a children’s menu catered particularly to kids of all ages. The newly renovated, sunny and spacious 2500 sq. ft. space with 13 TVs is perfect for corporate and private events. For more information email

The Ugly Mug is the perfect venue to host your next party. Consider the Mug your space for semi-private and private events such as corporate parties, birthday celebrations, happy hours, and fundraising events. If you just need a few tables, we can do that too! The Ugly Mug will accommodate your event specifications. The Marketing and Events Manager will work with you to create a fun-filled event that meets your vision and budget parameters. We look forward to working with you to make your event a success.
