Dupont Circle, Washington, DC –
A fashionable four-story club discreetly tucked away on Connecticut Avenue, Midtown springs to life every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as throngs of party-ready clubbers line up in hopes of getting past the pea coat-clad bouncers.
Those who make it through find themselves in a flashy neon-lit room that contradicts the venue’s unassuming stone façade, complete with a sleek white bar where barkeeps in midriff-baring corsets serve cocktails to a stylish, international crowd that is equal parts Armani suit and Affliction t-shirt.
Patrons opting for bottle service congregate at low tables or in the bouncer-guarded VIP area overlooking the dance floor, where they await sparkler-adorned bottles of liquor that are hand-delivered by the female-only servers.
A more laid-back group of recent grads and young professionals, meanwhile, make their way to the Loft, a more casual area with two smaller bars and a few leather couches that maximize room for dancing.
One more flight up leads to the Penthouse, easily the mellowest room in the house, where subtle tunes play background to the gathering of businessmen puffing cigars and the designer-dressed ladies who light them. A small rooftop area accessed via the Penthouse provides breathing room for partiers before they descend once again to the louder and more crowded levels below.
A moment of respite is usually enough, however, as Midtown’s flashing lights and pulsating pop ignite energy reserves that keep DC clubbers going all night long.
International mix including recent graduates, young professionals, and designer-clad urbanites, 20s to mid-30s.
DJs spin Top 40 on the ground floor and in the Loft, ambient music in the Penthouse. Pool table on the 3rd floor available early in the night.
Cover charge $0–$20 (normally free for women and for guys before midnight). Beer $6–$9, cocktails $10–$14, bottle service $120–$850 ($300 table minimum). Valet $20.
Jeans and button-downs for the college crowd, sequined dresses and Armani suits for the professional crowd.
Thursdays for a dance-loving college crowd, and Fridays and Saturdays for a more fashionable international scene.
Current Sushi (1215 Connecticut Avenue NW) is perfect for a light meal before a night of dancing.
