Party Earth Shadow Room Review

Besides its sleek minimalist décor, high ceilings, and ample VIP areas, the most talked-about element of Shadow Room is how the venue blends technology with all the signature trappings of a high-end club.

Besides its sleek minimalist décor, high ceilings, and ample VIP areas, the most talked-about element of Shadow Room is how the venue blends technology with all the signature trappings of a high-end club.

Even when the narrow hardwood dance floor gets packed, and accessing the polished bar requires navigating a mass of trendy gyrating patrons, ordering another round of Courvoisier for the table is as simple as a few taps on an interactive tablet.

The tablets are part of a host of amenities available at several roped-off VIP tables, where stylish couples can not only order drinks, but make music requests, film their party with installed cameras, ring up the bill, and even play video games if cutting the rug just isn’t cutting it.

Adding to the luxurious vibe are the sparkling chandeliers hanging from the twenty-two-foot ceiling and a glass-walled VIP lounge with its own bar and DJ.

By midnight the venue usually becomes a sea of young professionals, chic partiers, and well-dressed students from nearby George Washington University dancing away under color-changing lights or lounging on low banquettes to listen to the DJ’s mix of hip-hop, Top 40, and rock.

No matter where the primped patrons spend their time at Shadow Room, however, fun is just a tap of a perfectly manicured finger away.

Tip from Adriana:

Even if you don’t have a table, you can still revel in Shadow Room’s high-tech amenities. Simply pull out your iPhone, create an account with Shadow Room, and order your drink without ever leaving the dance floor. When it’s ready, you’ll get a text message to pick it up. No waiting for you!

Great spot if you about Groupie Love...Baller Alert!!!
Megan W. Jun 10, 2013
Baller Alert! Baller Alert! Baller Alert! For all my ladies who don't mind doing something strange for a piece of change, this might be the spot to frequent. The VIP section is very nice and if you get the chance to be VIP in the VIP section, then I promise you will feel like a celebrity. Ran across a couple ball players, current and retired. However, I did not know they were players until after I left the club. I just thought it was a couple tall black guys in the building. That was vital information, I might would have stopped having fun so I could focus on snagging a baller. With my luck, I would have came up with a baller's broke ass cousin But I digress, the drinks were great, the service was wonderful. They have a club photographer who makes you feel super special and important. Couple that with the good alcoholic beverages in fancy glasses, and it should be good times.
Without a Shadow Room of a Doubt

When the lights dim and the flashes flicker the only penumbra of doubt you'll walk away with is the regret that you didn't come here sooner. Shadow Room offers the DC club-farer those rare egalitarian moments to rub elbows--among other body parts, the venue quite cozy--with a diverse social strata from Frat Boys to musical mavens to scoreboard-obliterating ballers. The intimate quarters eliminate pretense in favor of par-tay! Don't let the One-Love vibe fool you, though. Come dressed to the 9's because Beyonce-style hair flips are all but mandatory for the many flicks that will be shot with your gorgeous face lighting the background. Shadow room is centrally located on K street between the swamped K-Street Corridor and lower-Georgetown, so you may just find parking, but come early enough to avoid the line, especially on Thursday nights when the cities top promoters vie for the rights to claim this fabulous frequent as their own.
If you want to celebrate your birthday, graduation, or if you just took an exam that took the life out of you...Shadow Room is the place to be that Saturday night.
Emily R. Apr 2, 2013
A Saturday night at Shadow Room has been the highlight of my college experiences. You will meet people ranging from 18 years old to 35 years young. Yes, drinks are a bit pricey but aren't all drinks at a club in Washington D.C? If you're down to have a grand ole' time and dance the night away, Shadow is the place to be.
