If you’re constantly on the lookout for a great neighborhood hangout, some place you can grab a great drink (or four), catch some local art and hear some good music, you must check-out The Peacock Room.
The Peacock Room has been a favorite dive of mine for about 10 years now. You can always count on them to host a comfortable, familiar environment. Nestled in a strip on Mills Avenue (near the corner of Mills & Virginia), The Peacock Room is easy to miss if you don’t know it’s there.
The venue is tiny & intimate, but has grown over the past few years. The space next to the original bar became vacant, so they expanded and the “new” space is where you can listen to local bands or DJs.
One of the best things The Peacock Room offers is interesting art. I believe the art changes monthly, which gives good reason to keep coming back. You also never know what sort of crowd you’ll find at Peacock – on any given night it could be extremely diverse.
FUN FACT: The Peacock Room menus offer “conversation starter” suggestions, so you won’t find yourself talking about work!
