After a long run, Cricket on the Hill closed in 2008, and the place was sadly missed by denizens who frequented the spot. Fortunately, the Gabor's is still up and running next door -- and chances are good you'll probably run into someone there who used to hang out at the Cricket. This Capitol Hill mainstay has pretty much everything a neighborhood dive could ever want, from cheap drinks to cool bartenders to a decent set of regulars. Plus it sports one of the city's best jukeboxes, which is free most of the time and is loaded with a kitchen sink of artists and styles, from Tom Waits and Lou Reed to the Ramones and the Clash to Miles and Monk.
