418 Public House is a second pub from the guy behind Capitol Hill’s superlative Summit
, with a similar, simple mission: nothing fancy, just a good place to drink. There’s 12 beers on tap (lots local), trivia on Mondays, bingo, and under-$10 Mexican food (the place is not Mexican-themed, just normal-bar-themed). Also: free pool during happy hour. It’s where the Reading Gaol used to be, near the Tin Hat. If you live nearby, you’re lucky to have another fine local.
