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.

Tip from Adriana:

If you need a break from the crowd, ask one of the bouncers for the Penthouse stamp. It’s the only way you can get into the top floor, and getting one is totally at the bouncers’ whim. Better yet, try getting on the nightly guest list at rsvp@midtown-dc.com.

  • Crowd

    International mix including recent graduates, young professionals, and designer-clad urbanites, 20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    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.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    None.

    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.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Jeans and button-downs for the college crowd, sequined dresses and Armani suits for the professional crowd.

Chill Spot with the opportunity to unleash youe inner stripper
Megan W. Jun 10, 2013
Chill spot. Cool DJ. Urban music, very hip to what's hot out now. Dress code is EXTREMELY laid back, and by extremely, I mean you could come naked if you want. The front door bouncer would approve this statement. I know this because I specifically inquired about the mass amount of bare nipples and vaginas I saw that night; he said it was normal. The nights highlight though was the stripper pole and stage on the top floor. I spent most of my time here slapping the asses of women who were serious about letting the room know they had stripper moves in their arsenal. Some even made a couple dollars. I was there as support for them and for a second I felt like a proud madam. Good times.
Techno Your Heart Out
Sherrell L. Apr 2, 2013
This place was fun and very sexy. No drinks necessary to have a good time. It's a great vibe for the dancers and a modern sexy number for the more socially laid back crews. I love the unexpected and this was definitely a well hidden scene. Occupying several floors are different genres of great dance music from Hip Hop/R&B to House/Techno. There is a little fun for everyone. It gets packed on Friday night and the dress code is pretty laid back from what I could tell. I look forward to going again.
