Grab a Beer, Watch the Game or Catch Live Music at The Light Horse


If you’re not yet familiar with The Light House on King Street in Alexandria, you’re probably not alone. The nondescript storefront doesn’t announce itself as loudly as Murphy’s Pub next door, and the space isn’t as expansive as Columbia Firehouse around the corner. But for folks in the know, The Light Horse is not only a great place to watch a big game, enjoy a few rounds of shuffleboard or ski-ball, or sample one or two pints of craft beer.

The Light Horse is also one of the busiest venues for live music in Old Town. Head up to the upstairs bar Thursday through Saturday and you’ll find a range of DJs, bands, and musicians from various genres and styles. This month’s schedule alone features Rescue Squad, DJ Jules, and the Amero Blues Band. On Sundays and Mondays, take the stage for yourself during one of the bar’s regular karaoke league nights.
