Darkhorse: Best Va-Hi Bar but COLD!
Dark horse is by far my favorite Virginia-Highlands bar. I have been going there for years. The bar staff is very attentive and friendly, and they'll mix you up a meanie. It gets super wicked crowded around 11 pm and the crowd usually doesn't die down until really late when all of the regulars are hammered and asked to leave politely. There is a great mixture of people there all the time. The food is da bomb and there is a sweet sweet video game machine at the corner of the bar. If you're really nice, sometimes the bartenders will actually turn the jukebox up loud enough so you can hear the songs that you just paid $1 to hear in your drunken state of geniusness. Ok, the only negative thing I have to say about this place is that it gets silly cold around the bar sometimes when the staff decides to pump in fresh air from Siberia in the form of 25 mph winds. Ok, that's it. Hope you all enjoy my review. Great place to go any day of the week - including Sundays!
