Looking for nightlife areas in Washington, DC? The District has plenty! And believe it or not, it makes no difference what your political affiliations are (for once!). From stylish and cutting-edge spots to rowdy college-centric circuses of mayhem, DC nightlife areas do not disappoint.
Adams Morgan has such a reputation for late-night rowdiness that residents call the main drag of 18th Street “The Liquoridor,” a moniker kept alive by the throngs of Friday-happy college kids who parade up and down the sidewalk looking for cheap drinks and raucous fun.
The U Street Corridor, meanwhile, is a must for music lovers, and full of stalwart venues like Black Cat, 9:30 Club, DC9, U Street Music Hall, and Velvet Lounge that all showcase a huge range of musical styles every night. Non-music fans will also find plenty to love on U Street, especially when they join the fashionable singles on the standing-room-only rooftop bar at Local 16 or the eccentric jocks trying to “beat the clock” at Nellie’s Sports Bar at Happy Hour, when drink prices rise every hour.
East of U Street, the H Street Corridor – a mile-long stretch of H Street extending east from Union Station – has been the focus of a major redevelopment campaign since 2003, resulting in dozens of bars, acclaimed restaurants, and respectable music venues popping up along a stretch that was largely devastated by race riots in the 1960s.
And then of course there’s the preppy and glitzy set over along Georgetown’s M Street, full of congressmen, media personalities, and lots of college students crammed into fun bars, exclusive clubs, and big bumping hotspots down by the Georgetown Waterfront. Dupont Circle, meanwhile, is a vibrant gay-friendly area that also caters to a high-end crowd, whereas a major resurgence in Chinatown since the millennium has seen a host of new nightlife venues spring up, especially near the Verizon Center entertainment complex.
There’s even more to Washington, DC nightlife areas than that, so come on in to Party Earth DC for all the fun you never knew the District had!
