One of the newer additions to the Shaw community, Thally brings a good combination of neighborhood friendly and slight upscale flavor. The urban decor gives this quaint spot a comfortable feel, and the staff provides a welcoming environment. The happy hour bites are served in smaller portions than you might be used to, but the taste makes up for it, not to mention the drinks. Although the cocktails aren’t offered as a happy hour special, it is strongly suggested that you try a couple. The bartenders were very attentive and friendly and will make you a drink that complements your pallet.
I might go out on a limb and say that some of the cocktails rival many others in the DC area. While the drinks are quite delicious, the beers are also worth trying. The beer selection properly reflects the restaurant’s ties to the city, as they serve a good bit of the local beers. For the most part, the small bites don’t disappoint. While the potato croquettes were good, the marinated olives are a bit too salty. The crowd is a good mix of the young professionals, hipsters and older couples. The music is at a level that allows this crowd to converse comfortably with others at the bar that seats 15-20 people.
Considering it’s their first year being in operation in DC, Thally has made a good impression and our prediction is that they will continue to wow customers and keep them coming back for more and more of those small bites and delectable drinks.
