Party Earth MIA Lounge Review

The Scene

MIA Lounge in Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle is an upscale, Miami-styled club. Dance with fly young biddies under the flashing lights in DC with Party Earth.

The flush of neon leaking from the entrance and the prominent sign featuring the silhouette of a provocatively posed lady in place of the “I” make Miami-styled lounge MIA hard to miss.

Then there’s the six-foot rabbit. More on that later.

Catering to a young crowd of clubbers dressed to impress and looking to move, the venue focuses on flashy design and high-energy dance music, and manages to support an upscale aesthetic despite the absence of a cover charge and a long Happy Hour during the week.

Once inside, guests discover a stark white, high-ceilinged space full of draping curtains, flashing strobes, a wall covered in sultry lips, and more than a half-dozen projectors that produce 3D images on any surface in the room.

DJs spin house, hip-hop, techno, and usually a little Top 40 from their high perch above the dance floor, while scantily clad house dancers perform stupe-thigh-ing feats from stripper poles.

Three bars, including a VIP-only drink station upstairs, usually ensure quick service, but most of the dapper young dudes and dolled-up ladies in attendance aren’t there to nurse a drink – nor talk, for that matter, given the blistering sound system.

Regularly joining in on the fun is a man in a giant bunny outfit – the club’s mascot – who shows up to grind with the girls and help everyone at MIA have a great night.

…or assume they’ve been dosed with LSD.

Tip from Adriana:

Getting on the guest list is easy. Just friend the MIA bunny on Facebook and you’re good to go.

  • Crowd

    Young suits, trendy politicos, fashionable Persian ex-pats, groups of girls looking to dance, early 20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJs spin very loud techno, house, hip-hop, dance, and some Top 40 from 9pm nightly; all hip-hop Sundays and Mondays.

    Regular house dancers and pole dancers.

    Large, nightmare-inducing bunny rabbit.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    No regular food, but small plates are made available for special events and private parties.

    Happy Hour M–F 5–9pm.

  • Prices

    No cover charge. Beer $7+, mixed drinks $9–$12, bottle service $150–$350+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Dress code enforced. Stylish casual to club dressy: button-downs, polos, suits, blazers, short skirts, cocktail dresses, high heels.

    That said, folks that can pull off a more casual look – at least in the doorman’s eyes – will get in.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday and Saturday nights for the customarily longest lines and biggest crowd on the dance floor, or weeknights for the early Happy Hour to pre-game long before the night gets going.

  • Close By

    Current Sushi (1215 Connecticut Avenue NW) is a swanky sushi restaurant that features its own club, called Rosebar, on the second floor.

One of the best lounges on the strip!
Kim G. Aug 13, 2013
I went this past weekend on both Saturday and Sunday and for one love how they kept it diverse music wise. There's a dancer up top that you see while you're about to enter the lounge. The lights drew me in and made me automatically want to party, followed by the amazing pictures and body mannequins on and around the bar. The bartenders were amazing! Sometimes I want to try something different and say "just make me a sweet shot.!" and she made the perfect shot. You can start the party off with the place, end with it, or stay the whole night. If you're a party-er this for you!

I had a few friends visiting on a Sunday night and we unexpectedly decided to make it a night on the town. We just randomly walking through Dupont circle and came by this place, heard the crazy bass music coming from inside, and decided to check it out. There was a little line, no cover, we had three girls and a guy in our group. The second you walk-in it's lights everywhere; on walls, on the ceiling, coming from the bar. There were raised platforms with poles where girls visiting the club were dancing around. Fog machines blowing onto the dance floor, like I said, there's a lot going on and lots to look at. Because it was Sunday, we had limited access to space in the venue but there are two levels open regularly. We weren't able to get upstairs but downstairs, one side is lined with lounge booths for groups and the other is bar and dance space. This is probably one of the few places in D.C. you don't have to worry about political schmoozing, the music is just too loud for any of that. So if you want to get away from the buttoned up scene for a night and rage, this is your place.

Top dog when it comes to bottle service. Great service and dancing. Usually drinks are reasonably priced. Check it out!
