You need to come to the Stained Glass Pub next to the Glenmont metro station. It's probably the best pub in Montgomery County.

I think its a valid question. Nightlife....or even a random bar....should not require living in a city center to get a good cold beer. The poster should be able to get a beer without being surrounded by obnoxious families at the dinner table 4 feet away. MontCo is warped beyond repair. I personally believe that MontCo has seen it's peak and is now on a precipitous decline. Never in a million years would I choose to live there.

I think the type of nitelife that is missing in MoCo and other places are dancehalls or clubs where you can go dancing AND have a drink. Currently, the suburbs only provide bars to drink. I think if there were more clubs like on U Street or Adams Morgan, then that would help spice things up a bit. Looney's in College Park just applied for a dancehall license. Lookout! I guess that's the danger of having one developer fo an entire 4 blocks (DTSS). The single developer gets to have a say in what establishment moves in as opposed to a neighborhood being organically grown from various single proprietors. DTSS is very vanilla and reeks of suburban entertainment. Personally I'm glad UMD stepped away from having a single developer for East Campus and are doing it a piece at a time. Hopefully this will make it more unique.

MoCo definitely needs to reconsider some of its repressive, anti-business legislation. But when the government is sure it knows what's best for the people and insists on micro-managing everything, this is what you get.

I was just reading an article in the local paper about the owner of the winery at Sugarloaf Mountain. He got together some kind of small business meeting there, to discuss what Maryland can do to encourage business growth. He tried to argue that "manufacturing really does happen in Maryland", but I think he was only able to give about 6 examples (including his own winery, of course). That's pretty sad and pathetic. Yes, Paul Reed Smith guitars are made in Maryland, but more people were probably customers of and familiar with Baretta firearns, who are just about ready to pull out of the state, thanks to the legislation here.

When things are that bad at the STATE level, MoCo adding more rules and regulations on top just discourages anything from opening up in the county that much more. And don't forget the local rules that get piled on top of THAT too!

To be honest, the *only* reason we moved to MoCo was for the schools. We've got 3 kids in grade-school, so that was a big consideration. Being one of those families that MoCo seems interested in promoting, it is nice having places like the Rockville Town Center or Kentlands where you can go out as a family and everyone has a good time. But my favorite "hole in the wall - go to bar" is still probably Tommy Joe's in downtown Bethesda. It just reminds me of the kind of non-pretentious bars I'm used to, where all types are welcome and the food is basic bar food, but pretty good.

I'd sure never risk opening a bar in MoCo though, if I was forced to prove I sold at least 50% food every month. I mean, even if you tried to do that and normally did -- what about a big holiday party crowd or New Years' Eve crowd that pushed your alcohol sales over the norm at the end of the year? You want to get PUNISHED for being successful and popular like that!?

I posted this article to the forum awhile-since it is relevant to this thread I will repost it here- I agree with the article-(except for Bethesda) the county is pretty boring

Montgomery County looks to get hip - Washington Post
