A British American Pub

About us

Home alone is a movie, not an alibi.

The Alibi is a British American pub.  Here we don't just offer British staples, but American classics as well.  Our goal is to bring the essence of a British pub, it's true heart and soul, to our home here in the nation's capital.  Our food is hearty, fresh, inspired by family recipes and made from locally grown and sourced ingredients whenever possible.  You can accompany your meal with British or local draft beers, an approachable, craft cocktail, or one of the owner's favorite wines.  Most importantly, our staff is our family; a diverse group of professionals who are great to stop in and catch up with or get to know for the first time.
