Lonely Planet review

At JR’s weekday happy hour you might think you’ve stepped into a living Banana Republic ad: chinos and button-downs are de rigueur at this popular gay hangout frequented by the 20- and 30-something, work-hard and play-hard set. Some DC residents claim that the crowd at JR’s epitomizes the conservative nature of the capital’s gay scene; but even if you love to hate it, as many do, JR’s is the happy-hour spot in town and is packed more often than not.
