Party Earth The Third Edition Review

The Scene

The Third Edition in Washington, DC’s Georgetown is a restaurant/bar featuring wild weekend dance nights & DJs. Gear up for a rowdy DC night with Party Earth!

Located near the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and M Street, The Third Edition transforms from a casual daytime restaurant into a wild nightclub on weekends, drawing a crowd of frat boys, sorority sisters, and prowling twenty-somethings.

Once the $5 cover charge kicks in around 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, groups of college kids and recent alumni looking to relive their glory days head inside to bump and grind to ear-splitting beats helmed by the resident DJ that usually gets going by 10:30pm. Worn-out booths line the wall to one side, while the bar serves up the first shots of the night to incoming hordes.

Bros in polos and hungry clubbers start the night with massive plates of Irish nachos before climbing the stairs to the hot and heavy dance floor, where projected movies and visuals keep the party vibe in full swing.

And when the floor gets too crowded – virtually a guarantee on Fridays and Saturdays – claustrophobic partiers can squeeze through the meat market and head outside for fresh air at the seasonal upstairs patio and tiki bar, where pre-loaded patrons nurse their buzz as couples make out against giant kitschy totem poles.

With its end of week frat fest, The Third Edition is a favorite go-to for the college crowd – a place where anyone over twenty-three will feel old and the barely twenty-one set will think they’ve died and gone to the first edition of heaven.

Tip from Lucas:

Avoid the $5 cover by coming before 9pm on weekends to pre-game with a quick bite.

  • Crowd

    Rowdy college kids, frat boys, and sorority sisters, preppy Georgetown alumni, aspiring politicos letting loose, mostly early 20s with a few scattered late 20s at night, 20s to early 30s by day.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Local DJs spin on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30pm.

    Several flat-screen TVs tuned to sports.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Standard classic American menu including Irish nachos and burgers.

    Happy Hour M–F 5–7pm.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $5 after 9pm F–Sa. Appetizers $6–$8.50, soups/salads $4.50–$15, entrées $9.50–$19. Beer $3–$6, wine $4–$9, cocktails $6–$12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual clubby: polos, t-shirts, jeans, button-downs, boat shoes, club dresses, high heels.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday and Saturday nights for the most bumping scene, the loudest DJs, and the biggest crowds primed for a night of debauchery.

  • Close By

    Rhino Bar and Pumphouse (3295 M Street NW) stays open late and is a great alternative on the weekends for cheap food, drink specials, and wild dancing.

The Third Edition User Reviews

Average rating:
Intense party atmosphere.

The Third Edition is a genuine college kid bar/night spot. Situated about a 20min walk from Foggy Bottom Metro, this relatively cozy-looking sports bar transforms into a fully fledged frat-house doof party come 9pm most Saturdays, packed to the brim with collage students and tourists alike. Expect to hear mainly top 40, pop infused house music with a touch of hip-hop whilst you're dancing around drenched in most probably other punters sweat. What The Third Edition has going for it is reasonably cheap drink prices, cloak room services, outgoing friendly bar-staff and a good sized outdoor area to get away from the sometimes hectic dance floor. I'd only suggest this place to young college students or backpackers looking for a cheap but wild night out.
A place for the young at heart...provided their body is also barely legal.

Now, I like going home at night smelling of puke and watered down beer as much as the next person, but I'd prefer to do it somewhere I don't feel as though both my body and wallet are being violated as drunken patrons push through in a mad dash for the inconveniently situated bathrooms. I will say that there is a tiki bar outside for smokers and for those who crave a bit of fresh air, or perhaps a glimpse of a sweaty young girl in heels as long as the hem of her dress, clutching a friend and crying hysterically. Now, if you don't mind waiting twenty minutes for a drink and twice that for, god forbid, one of those aforementioned bathrooms, this is the place for you! You can stand shoulder to shoulder with three hundred college kids, screaming "So what sorority/frat do you belong to?!" over the thumping bass line, or you can go to Paolo's, or Town Hall, or any of the three thousand other bars in D.C. better suited to the over-21 crowd.
