The Codmother

An underground dive bar has made its way to U Street.  I paid a visit to The Codmother, formerly named Cafe Nema, to see what transformations have been made.

To my great surprise, it was nearly unrecognizable with a larger bar, more beer and liquor selections and a brighter feel.  The Codmothers’ mission is to be THE dive bar on U, a place where folks can come for reasonably priced drinks, specials, and all in a come-as-you-are atmosphere.  With chalk all around the brick-exposed bar as well as an extra-large chalkboard, they invite you to colorfully express yourself, through word and art.

The bar has an eclectic casual vibe where their daily specials are $3 PBR, $4 Yuengling, $7 PBR & Powers, and $8 Fish & Chips.

Above this chill dive spot has a new sister establishment, a low-key sportsbar named Touchdown, that has quickly become a convenient home to sports junkies on U.

If you’re looking for a simple place to grab a beer and a quick meal, check out The Codmother and ask for Tolga.  He’ll make your visit a great one!
