D.C. residents turned out in numbers to support the Cause "PhilanthroPub" on its grand opening.

A new bar and restaurant in the District called Cause is putting a social spin on charitable giving.

Located on 9th Street NW, the "Philanthropub" as they call it is just the latest in a long list of hipster hangouts that line the U Street Corridor. The difference is that this new bar aims to change the world, one beer at a time.

The "PhilanthroPub" concept is a bar and restaurant where all profits will be donated to a different group of charity each quarter. The pub opens tonight with proceeds benefiting local non-profits such as Martha's Table and Common Good City Farm.

The two friends who own Cause have decorated the converted brick row house in which it's located with images of social innovators, like Mahatma Ghandi and Nelson Mandela.
