Party Earth Josephine Review

The Scene

Possibly the best-dressed nightspot on K Street, Josephine attracts a stylish clientele of urban cool cats and preppy types who show up each night to jostle for position at the velvet ropes.

Possibly the best-dressed nightspot on K Street, Josephine attracts big name DJs to the decks and a stylish clientele of urban cool cats and preppy scensters who show up each night to jostle for position at the velvet ropes.

Those who gain entrance will find themselves on a wide staircase leading down to a 6,500-square-foot club, where buxom bartenders in tuxedo-like uniforms man the onyx bar in the Main Room, serving pricey rail drinks to the fashion-conscious crowd.

Black walls, lavender lights, and multi-edged mirrors with embedded LEDs pop out from nearly every glitzy nook and sleek cranny in this modern L-shaped space, which also features several fireplaces and dozens of low tables and plush sofas tucked behind mirrored columns for the bottle service set.

Top-billed DJs like Pete Tong, Fedde Le Grand, and Roger Sanchez draw everyone to the sunken dance floor – their magnums of vodka and bottles of Dom likely still in hand – to join the crowd of hip students and savvy travelers, not to mention the go-go dancers gyrating on platforms and poles.

Those looking for a bit of privacy and some top-shelf liquor should check out the Gold Room, situated behind closed doors in the back and decked out in a gold-tiled bar, gold paisley couches, mirrored tables, and another set of tuxedo-clad ladies.

For dance fiends looking for an excuse to put on their designer duds, Josephine promises a swanky and high-energy night on the dance floor.

Tip from Adriana:

If you rent the Gold Room for a private party, you’ll get access to a secret gold-lit hallway that circumnavigates the Main Room and provides private passage in and out.

  • Crowd

    Fashionistas, upscale tourists and urbanites, and hip college students, late 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Well-known DJs most nights often spin hip-hop in the Gold Room and house or trance in the Main Room. Gold Room normally opens up on Fridays so one headline DJ can get the crowd going in both spaces. Check venue calendar for lineup.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Limited street parking.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $20 (normally easy to get on a list to avoid cover, check venue website and promoter specials).

    Beer $7, wine $9–$11+/glass or $60–$100/bottle, cocktails $8–$11, bottle service $150–$5000 w/minimum and 20% gratuity required. Valet $20.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Dressy: chic Intermix dresses and Louboutins for women, and designer button-downs and True Religion or Rock and Republic jeans for men. Dress code: no flip-flops, hats, or athletic gear.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Wednesdays for hip-hop, Thursdays for the top local DJs, or Fridays and Saturdays for the biggest-name guys and gals behind the decks and the largest collection of pretty people on the dance floor.

  • Close By

    Teatro Goldoni (1909 K Street NW) serves fine Italian cuisine in an upscale setting, and features a chef’s table package that includes seven courses served at a private table in the kitchen.

Where to go when you want to feel glamorous
Amanda K. May 21, 2013
Josephine is a good place to get lost in for the night. The club just makes you feel elite, like you've tapped into a secret nightclub. It's adorned with metallic walls and glamorous chandeliers. There are several rooms with awesome DJ's, one of which who plays house music. Everyone is dressed up and the drinks while pricey are good. Photogs might take your photo and no matter where you are in the bar, Josephine makes you feel V.I.P.
