Where can one find cheap drinks and live music in U Street? The answer: Sala Thai. After dinner, we popped in here after spotting a “live jazz” sign outside. Scored a table near the band, and we were all set for the next hour or so. I snacked on the veggie loaded garden roll ($6) while sipping on a refreshing citrus cosmo cocktail ($9). Not the most amazing food, drinks, or ambiance in the world, but a pretty good spot for catching up with friends without breaking the bank.
