J. Paul¹s is Washington¹s quintessential turn of the century American Dining Saloon. The original, located in historic Georgetown, sits in an historic building over 100 years old and has now been one of D.C.¹s most popular watering holes for more than 20 years.

A few short blocks from the Potomac River, J. Paul¹s has become an institution. Every day, politicians, journalists, artists, business people and Washington personalities share tables with students, tourists and ex-Pats in the nation¹s capital.

The J. Paul¹s bar in Georgetown is itself a 100 year old mahogany shotgun bar, built by the Brunswick Balke Coolander Company and was previously housed in a grand saloon in the Chicago stockyards. Many will swear over their scotch that Al Capone himself bellied up to that very bar. Antique brass elevator doors from New York¹s Waldorf Astoria frame the back dining room.

There are many places to dine in the Washington area. There are only a few, however, that combine excellent food, personal service, and a stimulating atmosphere in an historic setting. J. Paul¹s is one of them.
