The Old Ebbitt Grill is one of the oldest and most taverns in Washington. Although it now resides on 15th Street near the White House, it had two previous locations around the corner. As the Ebbitt House (a hotel) it stood in the spot currently occupied by the National Press Club. However, this photo from 1979 shows the Old Ebbitt Grill at its F Street location. Currently, the sprawling expanse that is The Hamilton stands in the place of this once rather modest exterior.
