The J. Paul’s bar in Georgetown boasts a 100 year old mahogany shotgun bar built by the Brunswick Balke Coolander Company. Previously housed in a grand saloon in the Chicago stockyards, many will swear over their scotch that Al Capone himself bellied up to that very bar. Antique brass elevator doors from New York’s Waldorf Astoria frame the back dining room and add to the turn-of-the century charm.
Located a few short blocks from the Potomac River, the original J. Paul’s has become an institution to those from every generation and all walks of life. Every day, politicians, journalists, artists, business people and Washington personalities share tables with students, tourists and ex-Pats in the nation’s capital.
There are many places to dine in the Washington area. There are only a few, however, that combine excellent food, personal service, and a stimulating atmosphere in an historic setting. J. Paul’s is one of them.
Enjoy private dining in our 1889 Room, located on the 2nd floor of J.Paul's. Its mahogany walls, wood floors and eclectic style give the room a warm & classy atmosphere. Long, magnificent windows overlook historic M Street, in the heart of Georgetown. The 1889 Room is great for all occasions: birthdays, holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, celebrations, business luncheons, cocktail parties, and even televised sporting events.
The 1889 Room can comfortably seat up to 35-40 guests for sit-down dinner and has sufficient space for 50 guests for a stand-up cocktail/passed appetizer party. Parties larger than what can be accommodated in the 1889 Room are welcomed and can be housed semi-privately or privately in the main dining room.
J.Paul's offers customized menus, buffet or sit down dinner. Our chef will work with you to ensure the menu is to your liking and specifications.
