The Society Restaurant & Lounge has a well-established reputation among folks in the Silver Spring area for both its live music and nightclub experiences. But there's plenty more to appreciate at The Society Restaurant before the sun goes down, as well.
Take the bar's happy hour specials, for example: all week long you'll find generous discounts on drinks, including $6 martinis on Mondays, $25 beer buckets for you and a few friends on Tuesdays, and half-off wine bottles on Wednesdays. The discounts are available from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., which means plenty of time to socialize before you head on home after work. On Sundays, don't miss the opportunity to enjoy brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The restaurant offers an unlimited brunch buffet that includes traditional breakfast staples like omelets, pancakes and waffles, as well as Caribbean specialties like jerk chicken, curry shrimp, and rice and peas.
Chris Brown and Seth Cook, the founders of Takoma Bev, have known one another their whole lives. They're cousins whose shared experience traveling the world and working in the service industry resulted in a shared dream: to open an establishment that would bring expert attention and care to the deceptively complex art of coffee.
Their dream became a reality with the opening of Takoma Bev on Laurel Avenue. Starting with the morning commute, you'll find folks streaming into the shop to pick up breakfast sandwiches and espresso drinks. Later in the day, nine-to-fivers come in to enjoy soup, salad or sandwiches during the lunch hour. After the workday is through, the happy hour crowds stop by to have a glass of wine or a signature cocktail. If you share a passion for craft in all things, this just might be the place for you.

The name of Bump ‘n Grind in Silver Spring tells you all you need to know. It isn’t just a 90s R&B reference (although this place does spin throwback records from time to time), but refers to the dual nature of the shop. The “bump” refers to the dance, funk, soul, and rock records that are on sale and prominently displayed throughout the store, and the live music and DJ nights on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The “grind” in the name refers to the small-batch roasted coffee and espresso beans that are transformed into carefully crafted drinks by expert baristas.
In addition to coffee shop staples like pastries and bagels, you’ll also find a small menu of flatbreads, breakfast burritos and salads. Locals say they love the sense of community this place encourages, whether you visit on a lazy Sunday morning to sip your coffee or attend one of the evening film screenings and Forward Fest events.
Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Macdara's Grille transforms into a jazz club. Live jazz music accompanies a brunch spread of eggs, waffles, sandwiches, and a few boozy libations. Since Macdara's Grille first opened this summer, its combination of brunch bites and live music has quickly become a winning combination.
Start your brunch feast by sharing a plate of the loaded tater tots, which are smothered with cheddar cheese and chunks of bacon. Then dig into a savory dish like the biscuits smothered with sausage and gravy or the hashbrowns scrambled with eggs, cheese, and bacon. If you want something that balances sweet and savory, try the chicken and waffles with honey mustard and maple syrup—the eatery offers a vegan version of the dish, as well. Wash down your meal with mimosas or bloody marys at Macdara's Grille.Read More

The AFI Silver Theatre bridges the gap between past and present. It resides inside of a historic building, architect John Eberson’s Silver Theatre, which was built in the 1930s. However, the theater has undergone major restorative efforts and renovations to add exhibition spaces and an additional pair of stadium theaters in an expanded 32,000 square feet. The theater also boasts both the vintage equipment that can properly show silent films and the contemporary technology necessary to create a crystal-clear picture when screening a modern-day film.
The independent theater hosts special screenings of retro films, shows contemporary indie flicks, and hosts other cinema-related events. Come by on August 25th for a double feature of The Black Cat and Re-Animator. On September 8th, celebrate a beloved musical with a Grease sing-a-long. Or just grab a ticket to see one of the currently showing first-run movies.
