Union Street Public House

Another Hidden Gem in Old Town:
Everyone knows and loves Union Street Public House, but many are not aware of the Oyster Bar in the back of the building, at the South end on the ground floor.

Much less crowded and noisy than the main bar and the bartender-to-pubcrawler ratio is much higher, yielding a significantly higher level of personalized attention.

I have no complaints about the service in the main bar (props to Bruce, Brody, Hank, et al), but often prefer the back bar when taking the little lady out for a dozen on the half shell.

Stop in the Oyster Bar the next time you're at Union Street and be sure to tell 'em F-Bomb Pubcrawler sent you!

unionstreetpublichouse.com An institution in Historic Old Town, Alexandria Virginia, Union Street Public House opened in a renovated Colonial warehouse in 1986, and has served locals and visitors with the finest in fresh seafood, prime steaks and chops ever since.


Pat Troy's Pub May Have Found a New Owner

Say it ain't so Pat! How will the old place keep going without you sitting at the end of the bar?

Actually, I'm no fan of the place. It is the closest bar/restaurant to my place and I virtually NEVER go in there. Murphy's is a better Irish pub, hands down. Maybe things will go better under new management. Happy trails Pat.


oldtownalexandria.patch.com A change of ownership document has been filed with the city.

Had a great time dancing to a fantastic Flamenco band and consuming mucho Sangria with friends last night at Las Tapas.

Which place is your favorite: La Tasca or Las Tapas?

[03/27/12]   Happy Hour at Union Street Public House is always a good time. Beer specials, oysters on the half shell for $1 each and Brody smiling behind the bar. Who could ask for more?

Please join me Monday night as I volunteer-bartend at American Legion Post 24 in Old Town Alexandria.

Mangia Mondays at Post 24 with Frank Behind the Bar:

... Homemade Pulled Pork on 6" Sub Roll
Served with French Fries and sides of Cole Slaw and BBQ Sauce

Display your skills at the Billiard Table by participating in this rolling tournament every Monday night.

No registration required. Just take on all comers and inform the bartender of every victory. Must be confirmed by your victim.

Top winner each Monday gets their name on the wall all week and a free pitcher of Yuengling (from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.) IF they return to defend their title the following Monday.

Didn't win Monday night? No worries! Top game winner each month gets their props and pitcher as well. You could be a monthly winner without ever being a weekly winner.

[09/24/11]   Alex, the pain in the ass former bartender at the Basin Street Lounge upstairs at 219 King Street, is now at La Tasca.

When he was running the bar at 219 he acted like he was king of the freakin' world. I don't know if he was fired or quit but he is significantly more humble and friendly in his new position.

Stop by to say hello and tell Alex Fbomb sentcha!

[09/24/11]   Union Street Public House has a great happy hour menu that includes 50 cent grilled wings (very tasty!) and $1 local oysters on the half shell! M. Speedo and myself availed ourselves of the fine USPH fare Friday afternoon. The oysters were stupendous - especially at that price. Thanks Brody!
