Internet best-of lists agree: Tombs is a good college bar
While Georgetown students know the Tombs goes hand in hand with the true “Georgetown Experience,” it seems that various travel and leisure guides are finally recognizing the magnificence of Georgetown’s quintessential college bar.
Actually, Yahoo! Travel+Leisure recently ranked the Tombs one of America’s best college bars. The article highlights the plaque with the names of the 99 Days Club Members (who celebrate their last 99 days of senior year by visiting the Tombs and purchasing a drink or dish each day until graduation), the varied customer base, ranging from professors to students, and, of course, the classic comfort bar food, which has been noted a “gastronomical experience” of its own.
The Tombs has previously received a fair amount of press, most significantly for its diversity in regards to customers and menu items. U.S. Airways magazine commended the Tombs for providing an atmosphere for families, professors, and senior college students alike to enjoy, relax, and dine. In terms of food, the Tombs menu can meet the tastes of most palates, ranging anywhere from Mediterranean to American with items like quinoa tabbouleh with falafel, Shanghai Rolls, and classic Chicken wings.
At the same time, the college bar enthusiasts over at Yahoo! probably didn’t know that Tomb’s lamb ragu was so good because it came from upstairs.
