At least three bars on Capitol Hill are set to show the first Republican debate for the 2016 presidential election tonight.

Molly Malone’s (713 8th St. SE) and Lola’s Barracks Bar & Grill (711 8th St. SE) on Barracks Row both will screen the debate with volume from 9 to 11 p.m. The bars will be extending happy hour through the end of the debate. Special deals include $6 house wines and $8 chicken wings.

Union Pub (201 Massachusetts Ave. NE) will run its happy hour from 5:30 to 11 p.m. for the debate. The bar will have $12 Bud Light pitchers, drinking games, bingo and a photo booth during its watch party.

Tonight’s debate is the first of 11 primary debates involving GOP presidential candidates. Of the 16 candidates, only 10 made the cut for the prime-time debate on Fox News.

The debate is scheduled to run from 9 to 11 p.m.
