Party Earth Dodge City Review

The Scene

Dodge City on DC's U Street Corridor is a fun little bar/club with great microbrews & DJs. Sheriff, Party Earth is callin' you out to this chill Washington, DC haunt!

Within spittin’ distance of a slew of popular concert venues on always-busy U Street, little Dodge City brings in a big regular crowd of music lovers and a diverse mix of sports fans, casual clubbers, and anyone hankering for a decent pint.

A more laid-back vibe is the norm on the ground floor, where DJs spin mellow blues, funk, or lounge music beneath the funky artwork scattered on the walls, and casually dressed professionals chat it up along the rustic bar, downing a few pints from the wide selection of microbrews.

Those with an itch to grind can climb the worn stairs to the bar on the second level, where another DJ turns up the hip-hop, house, and other up-beat tunes on Fridays and Saturdays, and the open room fills with rowdier club kids looking to get their dance on.

When revelers need to cool off, they head to the back patio, which also provides a relaxed space to nurse a few throughout the week. Popular with sports-lovers who’d prefer to avoid a sports bar, the patio opens early to accommodate the NFL season, though Sundays host a grill team that keeps guests satiated with sausages all year round.

Whether they want to chill with a few unique beers, bust a move to local DJs, or enjoy some backyard grilling without having to clean up after themselves, U Street visitors will definitely want to get out to Dodge City.

Tip from Emma:

Be sure to hit up the free double-feature movie night on Mondays. Call ahead to make sure it’s on (it isn’t every Monday), but nothing beats starting off the week cozying up to one of the ample heat lamps with a bowl of free popcorn and a movie you’ve probably never heard of!

  • Crowd

    U Street music lovers, casual sports fans, barhoppers looking for a spot to chat, and groups of friends who want to dance without fighting a line, mid-20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJs on the ground floor spin mostly mellow blues, funk, and lounge music three to four nights a week. Otherwise, ambient music in the same style downstairs. On the second floor, DJs turn up the volume with house, hip-hop, and other upbeat mixes on Fridays and Saturdays. NFL games on the projection screen in the back patio during the season, free movie nights on same screen every other Monday.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    13th Street Meats sets up on the patio with its selection of handmade sausage and breakfast sandwiches M–Th 6–10pm and Su 1–10pm. Free popcorn during Monday movie nights. Upstairs available for private rental. Heated back patio.

  • Prices

    No cover charge. Beer $4+, cocktails $5–$12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Hipster casual to business casual: fitted jeans, leather jackets, blazers, comfortable dresses, boots.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Fridays and Saturdays for DJs on both floors and a chance to chill, dance, and repeat, or Sundays during NFL season to catch the game in the cozy back patio.

  • Close By

    Velvet Lounge (915 U Street) is directly next door and has concerts most nights, so patrons can get their local live music fix and then head over to Dodge City to post-game with a microbrew.

The Pulse of U Street
Erik H. Apr 24, 2013
MD and VA commuters may not know U Street very well, but if you ask them what their favorite bar is, you're likely to hear them scream, "I LOVE DODGE CITY!" And it's likely you won't disagree. If you're into great weekend hiphop, funk, and soul DJ spinning on two floors with a packed group of dancing, energetic DC singles, Dodge City is the place to be. With the bonus of a ground floor patio for audible conversing and a deck on top, even your two-left-feet friends will find something to love about Dodge. Dodge has a light dress code, affordable beers prices and average cocktails, thus attracting a wide-ranging crowd of hipsters, Hill staff, and their worldly friends in town for the weekend. Great for a late post-dinner location with your girlfriends and brosephs.
