The 9 Lb Hammer is great at what it does: serve drinks, have bands sometimes, and provide a Georgetown hangout with free pool and peanuts. The place feels old-saloony even though it's not, with tippy barstools and mismatched furniture, and there are couches, too. As reader-reviewer HandBanana
puts it, "I like it so much, if this bar was a lady, I would make sweet sweet love to it."
