Decades DC: what do users think?


Alex Vlad: I’ve been coming to this spot for years now, and it never fails to deliver that one-of- a kind retro timeless experience. The floors are all unique with their own theme— from 2000s to 90s to hip-hop/ and an EDM rooftop, music and DJs are always on point, and the staff and security are always very friendly and helpful. The venue is clean and hand sanitizer stations are offered; the staff wears masks, and considering we are in hard times with COVID im happy I can still enjoy clubbing, and a night out with friends safely. Overall, I would highly recommend Decades to anyone as its gives you a little bit of everything and more!

Kim & Ben: We were a little nervous to visit decades after reading the reviews, but we ended up going for a bit to celebrate a friend’s birthday and actually had a great time! The line to enter was long, but moved quickly. They did a thorough check point where they pat you down, check bags and check jacket pockets. You get carded at the door and have to pay a $20 cover if you don’t have a VIP pass. We all got the free VIP pass off their website and, so we didn’t have to pay the cover fee. Once inside, you can visit each floor of the club to get a different music experience. The top floor was the most crowded, and it was very hot, but our group still had a good time dancing. One of the middle floors (I think it was the 90’s floor) was less crowded, and you could feel the air conditioning, so we stayed there most of the time. Our friends said the bartenders were nice, and we didn’t have any negative experiences with bouncers either. We had a ton of fun at Decades and would love to visit again sometime! If you haven’t been, I’d stop by and give it a try!

Itzel Trejo: I used to love this place but friends and I went to a day party after Sunday brunch and saw a rat right on the rooftop bar. We notified staff and they did not care. We decided to leave because the rat was right next to the bottles so we felt uncomfortable getting drinks. Staff response was that we live in a city and rats are everywhere and although I understand there’s still expectations when it comes to rats near what costumers consume. I would have expected a better costumer service response. Go at your own risk.

Niyah Baptiste: I would definitely recommend, me and my sisters celebrated our birthday here and it was on point!! Music was amazing drinks were decent priced. I’d definitely suggest getting there early so you don’t get caught in the rush of people tryna get to the “good”floors. It was definitely the vibe 10/10 totally going back.

Ali Hamza Dar: I have the worst experience in this club. First we almost spend over 1500 on Thursday night on my friend birthday. Towards the end of it I wanted to use the bathroom and this one security guy did not let me use the bathroom. After I insist I really need to use it badly than he told me that if I give him 100 dollar and the other security guy 100 then he will let me use the bathroom. What a worst service is that. I ask him who is the owner of this place let me speak to him and he refuses me and told me get out of here. Is this how you treat with the customer. It was so terrible. There many other people standing and watching this incident.
Response: Hey Ali – Thank you for your feedback. Could you please send us an email to info@decadesdc.com regarding this matter, so we can further look into it.

Ahmad AL Jaloudi96: I’d like to give an accurate opinion and with full transparency. The place is very boring since the Halloween event until these days. The entry fee is 20 dollars, it must be reduced to 10 dollars because the place is not worthy now adays and there is no respect for the customer, the security workers are very rude, the place is not clean ,the pool table is in poor condition and the prices fluctuate every weekend, the price varies, there is no credibility.. I didn't want to talk about this, because every week I was saying that the situation would get better, but to no avail. You should notice this, because the customers are gradually declining. Please pay attention to these notes. Today was my last visit to the place and I could not stand staying for more than an hour and 45 minutes. I will not go back again if these comments are not considered.
Response: Hey Ahmad we appreciate your feedback. VIP passes are offered online on our site to offer our guests free entry all night on Fridays, and until midnight on Saturday nights. We are fully transparent on our cover charges, which have been consistent since we re-opened June 11. Our prime responsibility is the health and safety of our employees and our customers -- we've taken additional steps and are punctual with our cleaning crew about disinfecting and cleaning our venue prior. If you'd like to follow up on this matter please feel free to text us at 202.650.7326-- thank you and we hope you give us another visit in the near future.

Deanna Joan: You’ll have a good time, but be prepared to spend a lot of money! $20 cover charge and pricey drinks. But it’s spacious and clean, it doesn’t get too crowded, and they play some GREAT throwback music. Pick your battles!

Steven Fernando: Overpriced and crowded. Rude staff. Was being charged $14 for Coronas and other cheap beer pre covid, can only imagine what it’s like now. Paying that much for drinks youd atleast expect to be treated with some respect
Response: Hey Steven! Thank you for your honest feedback. Our drink prices match to those of our competitors in the area. Check out our social media for any ongoing promotions we currently have such as the $4 Budlight, $8 Absolut Mixed Drinks on Friday nights. Thank you again, and we hope to have you back soon!

Drew Inge: If you’re an LGBTQ person do NOT come here. First of all, aside from the fact that this bar is not lgbt friendly it’s absolutely disgusting. The first floor of decades smells like a portopotty. The drinks are ridiculously overpriced compared to any other comparable “club” in DC. The cover is $20 which would be fine if it had any redeemable qualities worth the cover. As far as it being not LGBTQ friendly, the staff is not trained on how to handle LGBTQ people, the bathrooms are labeled All Gender but they have staff guarding them(even though they are single stall) allowing only females into one and “men”(those they deem visible men) into the room with only urinals available(on the rooftop) My personal experience on the rooftop after entering the “all gender” restroom was I was pulled out by the staff and then told I was not allowed to use that facility and I could enter the mens room because that room was for women only. I politely informed them I did not want to use the room with the urinals and the straight men and was then yelled at by security and told that I had no choice. IF YOU ADVERTISE ALL GENDER RESTROOMS THEN YOU STAND BY THAT STATEMENT. Will not return after this. I’ve visited numerous times and had multiple bad experiences but returned because I have so many straight friends who visit and want to experience different decades of music. If you want to experience the cliche of every decade and it be absolutely horrible then by all means please visit Decades DC but I’d spend my money at other establishments that cater to their clients much better; lgbtq or not.
Response: Hey Drew thank you for your honest feedback. We can assure you that we value and respect all people regardless of their race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual-orientation. Please email us at info@decadesdc.com regarding this matter, and a manager will be in contact with you.

Sophie Wophie: Me and my friends used to love to come to decades but each time we get some sort of mistreatment. The guards are rude and RACIST. One time one of the guard told us ‘this ain’t your s**t, when we try to get to our VIP table. Ever time we go there it feels like they assume just because we’re black we can’t afford VIP. I’m tired of this racist treatment, I will take my money somewhere where it’s appreciated.

Dirty Bar: what do users think?


Daniel K. Mitin: Yeah, it's expensive (for males). $20 entry for ONE floor (when you could go to Decades just down the same street for same entry charge and five different floors), but I will say - this place has the best dancefloor engineering I've ever grooved on. It's not entirely flat, think more wavy and it's high quality wood which allows you to slide (in the best of ways)

Kel M: If you’re partying here this Memorial Day weekend be careful. My friend and I stopped by one Saturday afternoon when there was supposed to be a Caribbean party, somehow it got canceled. However, the tickets were still on Eventbrite. Even though the party was canceled we decided to stay anyway because the DJ was great. After about 15-20 min the bouncer asked if we would leave after we finished our drinks, I think it was because we didn’t fit the demographic. All we had done was walk in go to the bar and sit down to enjoy our drinks and great vibes. Overall just an awful experience.

Rahel Tiruneh: I am done with this bar for good. I often come here to party, but seriously the bartenders always rip my money. Mind you I am also a bartender and I know it's not a fun night if you don't make tips. Last year on my birthday me and my boyfriend opened a tap but paid the tab with cash, we never got a receipt because we were drunk (our mistake) and the bartender charged us on the card and also took our cash. I tried really hard to get my money back but since we didn't have Receipt we couldn't prove it. It was about $200 uuugghhhh. Last Friday I went with friends and got a few drinks paid my tab and tipped in cash (mind you I know it's good to be tipped in cash because I'm a freaking bartender myself) and I just found out that the bartender took extra $10. I have my receipt but I don't have the energy to call and dispute this but dirty bar will no longer get my money or business anymore. This is too much!!! I really hope the extra $10 you stole from me was worth it and will change your life You THIEF! really hope management changes the way how these bartenders just use people. Aside from that DJ is insane, he will spin you around all night. It's a fun place to hangout at if you don't mind the surprise charges on your card the next day!!!! I AM DONE!

Kishore Kumar: Fraud!! Fraud!! Fraud!! Overcharged and they also played very nice game. Here is lengthy detail but good to share so that no one gets fooled this way. When my friend went to close the tab, the bartender said that his card was not getting approved, so need another card. My friend gave cash $80, which the bartender took immediately and was still asked for another card. The bartender did not answer my friend's question and insisted on another card. I had to finally give my card and was charged $63.30. This time my friend did not enter tips amount as bartender already took cash as her tips. Next day we saw charges on both the cards which was insane. Friend was charged $123 and after 2 days my account showed final posting of $103.30 . Looks like bartender entered themselves tips of $40 additionally. Believe me, we had closed tab immediately on drinks purchased for 2 times in the beginning. And 3rd time this incident happened, so its not that this time we got lots of drinks between two of us. Be careful people!!

J Winns: My friends and I had a great time here. It was on a Sunday for brunch buffet and bottomless mimosas. It is the perfect mix of shall I say,”Bougie and Rachet”. Upstairs and downstairs has tables and seating,so you can dress nice,have a seat, and socialize.The buffet is pretty good as well as the music which was nice with a good mix of old and new hits. The vibe is chill and ready to have a good time. While i was there i even seen a cast member from Love and Hip Hop NY which was refreshing lol. The drinks were a little pricey,but the atmosphere to me makes it not so bad.

Christina Cortese: Dirty Bar: aptly named. If I could post a picture on mobile, I would show you the mouse hole I found (and took a picture of). We booked an event for 300 people, they said they could do food. Took them 40 minutes to bring the next batch of food out and it came out ICE COLD. Bartender didn't know how to make ANY drinks. This place needs Bar Rescue. Drinks, service, atmosphere, physical attributes, decor, food, drink quality and cleanliness were all atrocious. Just disgusting. No other way to put it.

Monet Weldon: The drinks before midnight are the cheapest in DC. It was free drinks for women I think on friday nights they have that and some Saturday nights. But after that it's $2 a drink until midnight so you can't beat that price. Just wish the music was better. Also it was free every time we've gone but i think hink sometimes there's a cover

Chad Goyette: Overpriced everything, will make you wait in line to make their establishment look busy. Once upstairs place is empty and $20 cover is too much when drinks are almost the same price. Only reason I give 2 stars and not 1 is because they did have a great sound system.

Luke Lu-LaLiberte: This place feels like it is owned and operated by meatheads that are running their business based on television portrayals of clubs owned by organized crime syndicates. Lasers and smoke machines? OK. Bouncers looming around permanently empty VIP section? Hmm. Bouncers that only let in a couple people every 5 minutes even though the bar is empty? Ooooook. Ridiculously high prices? Lame. Female staff dressed in lingerie? Weird. A swing with its own bouncer making sure only girls can sit on it? Oh come on, what is going on here? Gets a second star because you can drink free from 11-12 on Fridays (sign up in advance on eventbrite).

Jessica Quinn: Worst bar EVER! waited about 10 minutes to get a drink and when we got a drink, they were triple the price they should be! The horrible bartender proceeds to call over the bouncers saying we were going to pay! We never said anything like that and 3 big men proceeded to surround my friend and me. Horrible establishment. Don't waste your time or money!

DC9 Nightclub: what do users think?


grant rohland: I like going to concerts here the place has a good vibe and nice staff, the only issue I have is the way it's laid out is a bit strange the merch table is right in front of the door so you get people blocking the door trying to get merch. It's a small complaint but overall this is a good spot to go see music I really enjoyed it.

John T: This dive bar is awesome! In the summer you can relax on the 3rd fl rooftop and laugh at everyone waiting in line for the "popular" bar across the street. In the winter they have small indi bands on the second floor. Great concert space. Staff has seen it all so be respectful!

Katelyn Stenger: Intimate venue and very friendly staff. I would highly recommend if you can! The tickets were shockingly affordable and the folks at the front actually checked vaccination and ID. Much appreciated.

Jessica Strahin: Went there for a small intimate concert. Loved the venue and the staff!!

Robert Cardoni: Great intimate show space to see smaller up and coming bands ... only hold about 150 people - so sold out shows are tight. Staff is super friendly. Beer is cold. Sound is good. What more could a music fan ask for Check set times though. Sometime shows are early with dance parties afterwards ...

Omny Miranda Martone: I love DC9. We go here regularly. The bottom floor is a typical indoor bar, the second floor is for dancing, and the top floor is a rooftop bar. Definitely recommend.

Stacey Brooks: Little but intimate. TTNG played twice here and it was a laid back experience. Bar on every level, food always smells great, bands perform on the second level without it being over crowded! Great place to rock!

Joe Nicol: always a good time, the best unofficial gay bar in DC — great acts, cool space

Chris B: 150 person capacity venue means you can get up close to the bands but shows usually end pretty early and the beer list is not impressive by any means. The food is pretty good tho, and be sure to get their garlic fries as a side to whatever you order.

Daniel Cox: Great place for live music. It is a really small and intimate venue which makes for a much better experience. Bouncer was really nice, drinks are averagely priced, and overall a good experience. Would come to a show here again.

Ultrabar: what do users think?


Angela Mendoza: I went to ultra bar recently and had a much better experience than before COVID. This club has really stepped it up, it’s not over crowded by 18+ and the music has an actually updated set. I love that I can choose the music I want to hear based on the floor. Be sure to visit them all to get the full experience and if you want a really good time you might as well get a table, they have decent bottle pricing for the area. Bottle girls there are really nice, we had Katie and she made sure we had fun.

Fernando Bernardus ABT: Love Ultrabar! Great music and atmosphere throughout the multiple levels of the club. The mixed drinks and their first-rate line of imported beers are top notch and fairly priced, considering the fact that this establishment is located in the heart of the nation’s capital. Getting a table is extremely affordable and I would recommend it if you come with a big group of friends. Security is on point inside and outside the club. It’s simply the best 18+ club in DC. Special thanks to Jimmy, Giuseppe, Galen, for always providing my friends and me with courteous customer service.

Alexander Zacapa Centenario: Ultrabar happens to be among the best clubs to party in DC. The establishment has four floors with different music genres played by talented DJs, and the overall atmosphere is always entertaining. My friends and I have enjoyed table service on multiple occasions and we’ve always had a fun time. The customer service from Jimmy Mar is absolutely exceptional, I consider him a tremendous asset to Ultrabar for many reasons, as well as the entire staff who are always very welcoming, friendly, and professional. This place also has outstanding security inside and outside the club in order to ensure the safety of its patrons. It is well situated near the Verizon Center and Constitution Avenue. Check out their pictures online showing how crowded and lit this place is. It is truly amazing on so many levels. Just make sure to look your best by following their dress code. Be ready to have a good time! In conclusion, I strongly recommend Ultrabar to anyone looking to have an enjoyable night out.

Alex Gonzalez: Perfect place for those who want a bit of everything. Sometimes I get tired of hearing the same type of music so it’s nice to be able to just switch floors to get a different atmosphere instead of having to go to completely different clubs and wait in line again. It gets packed but the bartenders are really friendly so they make the wait for a drink enjoyable

Angel Long: Went there Saturday for one of my buddies birthday. The stairs are a killer but the top floor is jumping. VIP service the way to go the floor was a bit crowded for me. Our waitress took care of us she was cool and brought girls to our table.

Brittney Vo: Always a good time when you come here! I’ve always had a good night coming to ultra. The music is up to date and I love the variety they have. Each floor is such a different vibe and my favorite are the latin and hip hop floors.

Tianna Chantel: This club is super cool! It has multiple floors and they each play different music so there’s a vibe for everyone! The service is fast and all of the bartenders are hot! Highly recommend!

P E: This 5 star review could not be more merited after a very busy Halloween Saturday night. The measure of an establishment is not only how well it executes its positive experience but also how it reacts when it gets something wrong. And we had one BIG hiccup. We had ordered tables and bottle service beforehand. Arrived around 11:30. The door staff were not the most cheerful but they're probably cold and dealing with a lot of drunk people so they have very little patience. All the different lines were very disorganized as well. Once we got in, my party were taken straight to our main floor table and introduced to Val. She was VERY happy and VERY cheerful and a wonderful and attentive server. There was a security staffer in the tables area at that time. We had some drinks, danced a little and settled in. After about 45 minutes we decided to leave our area to explore the other floors. Each has different music and a different vibe and it's a treat to wander and explore! And bring cash so you can tip the bathroom staffer. I was very embarrassed that I did not have any cash on me to say thank you to him. We wandered and danced for about 45 minutes. When we came back, we found a large group of ladies at our table and in our section. There was no security guard to be seen anywhere. We shooed them away and although they protested and argued with us for a bit they did eventually move away. That was when we discovered they had drunk our entire bottle of champagne and started in on our two liquor bottles having had approximately another 25% of each. We were appalled and shocked. We took the situation up with Val and she quickly gave us another bottle of champagne. However she didn't really know what to do about the liquor. We approved the check but mentioned that we would have to follow up with someone the next day about the situation. A few minutes later a staffer (we assume some kind of manager) came to us with another full bottle of liquor with their compliments. We were not expecting it and we were very grateful. Suffice to say, we were entirely satisfied with their handling of the situation and they turned the situation around completely for us. We had a wonderful rest of the evening and are eagerly looking forward to returning in the future. Val and the team at Ultrabar completely executed the right moves even when things went wrong. Major shout out to her. She made what could have been a bad review into a stellar customer service experience. We cannot recommend Ultrabar enough. Ps. They did acknowledge that there should have been a security staffer there keeping guard and mentioned that there usually is. Tips: If you have table service and everyone wishes to leave the table, GIVE YOUR BOTTLES TO THE BOTTLE SERVICE SERVER. Even if there is a security staffer there, they may be called away to deal with another situation.

Stephanie Trelles: I came to visit Washington DC for the weekend for Easter. My husband and I went to Ultrabar waiting in line for a little over 30 minutes just to get to the door and staff checking ID told my husband he was not allowed in because he had sneakers on. When I asked how come if every other male there had sneakers on and it was never mentioned in the dress code online. He responded very rudely and very unprofessional. The experience would have been a lot better if staff would have treated us fairly. I would think twice about attending this nightclub.

Xinyi Yin: The atmosphere, drinks, and music are great! They have a variety of different music on each floor, so you will not get bored of the place. Love the bartenders, they are super friendly and fun to talk to.

Tropicalia Lounge: what do users think?


TruMari Cooper: Tropicalia is a good time!!! The venue is extremely cozy and the sound throughout is lovely. The bathroom was clean and bar spacious! The venue is downstairs as well. When we went it wasn't insanely packed so there was no issues with it being hot. All in all it was a nice experience.

Melissa Sky: Great location, vibes, cocktails and music (Live and djays). Diversity is the spice of life and Tropicalia takes you outside the "bubble". Mix up the music! Irie!

Ty Black: This is the only place I like to dance at. They got rid of 80s night it seems, but that's fine cause the music is still better than other places. People tend to be nice and not creepy. But it is small so it gets really crowded and drinks sometimes get spilled.

Aurore Lrdlc: The place in itself and staff are nice (the only reasons why I could come back). However over the three bands playing on stage, only one was listenable. The other two were (sorry)... atrocious (in addition to the sound which was a way too loud). The public was only made up of families and members of the other bands... I do not know how the bands selection is made and maybe I did not come on the right day, but for a Saturday night I was strongly disappointed by the stage (and I'm not the only one). I lost $12 cover and my ears came out in blood. Will not come again unless I checked the bands before coming.

Bin “habesh times” Fi: It’s an okay club seen. Bouncer asked me for money as a bribe because my friend forgot her Id. The music is a C+ not very good or bad. Drinks are fair priced considering the area and the time.

Karoll William Visual Arts:  Learn to pronounce I just got mistreated by the person at the door. I visited this bar as part of the artists that performed that night, at a time when I went out to smoke a cigarette on the sidewalk in front, he tells me with an attitude that I had to go to the corner. I replied that I was on the street, that it is a public place and told me that then my night was "over" and that he would not let me in again. Of course I went to another friendlier place. I attach the picture of the stupid.

Alex Lima: This venue tend to have very good bands. But, they cut the shows off too early to give the stage to the house DJ that is nothing more than average. The venue does nit sell food and the drinks are somewhat overpriced.

scott g: Fun place. Went for a charity event and had a band playing. Great atmosphere

Edward Eilers: Open later and good atmosphere, decent drinks. Well lit areas plus spaces to sit and also less light in some areas. Overall as a small club it is good for the area, another way to unwind.

frank swyca: Topicalia Lounge is a really cool night spot. Eclectic live music and decent DJ later at night keeps the vibe popping. I took a friend from out town there and they loved it! My favorite spot in that 14th St. club area. Worth checking out if you have not.

Bliss Nightclub: what do users think?


Jeremy Cole: I'd never frequent this establishment under any circumstances. Ownership and management absolutely understood that a corpse would be positioned on stage during a recent event. It was in poor taste. Ownership and management didn't care because at the end of the day, they just wanted to take the money of the late rapper's family and friends. I highly recommend that Bliss Nightclub shut down completely and I thoroughly urge every event promoter to stop conducting business with them.

latoya fenwick: This was the worst experience I ever had at a club. I really wish I would of read these reviews first. I had a 10:30 reservation for a table. They had us standing outside in line until 12. When they finally let me and my six guests in, they brought us to a little section with what looked like a love seat. So we all weren't able sit. Then we ordered our bottles. When the bottles arrived they brought us six dirty champagne glass. They had lipstick all over them. The nerve of them in the middle of a pandemic. After we drank our bottles out of plastic cups. I wanted to order more but our server was nowhere to be found for a least an hour. When I finally hunted her down I told her I wanted to order some shots and she told me I had to go to the bar and order it myself. At this point I was ready to go. So save your money this place is not worth it.

Jessica Frey: I went here once for a dababy performance. The line was long but it moved pretty fast. The thing that upset me and my friends is that they had a “no sneakers policy” and one of my girls who’s a stud was wearing AF1s. She had to pay $20 extra for the sneakers but we saw plenty of men wearing sneakers who didn’t pay. We had to use cash too so it felt like the girls working the door were just trying to finesse. It was super crowded and hot. Dababy didn’t even show up until 2:30 am (club closes at 3) and I could barely hear him

Mashona Campbell: so we had a girls trip and ended up there not only did we pay $60 a person to get in and someone told us it should have been $40 anyways want to use the bathroom all the bathroom were NASTY PAPER IN ALL TOILETS I WAS THERE FOR 4 HOURS AND COULD NOT USE THEM AT ALL YOU WOULD THINK SOMEONE WOULD HAVE CLEANED THE AGAIN BUT NO ONE DID I WOULD NO RECOMMEND CLUB TO ANYONE. NOW THE ONLY PERSON THAT WAS GOOD WAS THE GUY THAT WAS DOING THE 360 THING HE WAS NICE PERIOD! OTHER THEN THAT IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME STAY AWAY FROM THIS CLUB!!!!!!!

Anita Thomas: Don't understand why your establishment has a picture on your photos website of the young deceased Rapper Goonew if you sending out all the disclaimers and apologies about not being aware. Respectfully I ask. I'm a 62 year old woman who has never heard of him, but I grieve for his spirit and his family. We have to understand that if Black Lives Matter" then we have to show that "Black Lives Matter". Read alot about this young man and deep inside my heart really really grieves. Rest in peace Mr. Morrow.

Edou: Avoid ❌coming HERE! Worst club experience in D.C. Me and my friends bought tickets online and when we went there they told us the bliss club is divided into 3 part and we were supposed to go to the All black African party which is same Bliss club, when we went in the back they told us it the wrong ticket but it wasn’t the wrong ticket because the Bliss club was clearly written there, so went to the front and when we went in the front they told us it the wrong ticket we should PAID EXTRA $20. We waited in the cold N end up pay $120 additional charge to enter the club. This people are SCAM, Don’t go there. NO MATTER WHAT U DO THEY WILL FIND REASONS TO MAKE U PAY MORE MONEY❌

Curtis Gardner: K- Michelle was trash on 1-1-22Did more talking then singing. Bartenders was on point 5 stars for them. Overall the club was still fire with the bad performance from What’s her name.😂😂😂

Ty Williams: Came from NYC to see a performance and visit some friends in the area. Arrived at the venue and the line wasn’t moving at all. Mind you, we bought our tickets online weeks prior. When we got inside it was maybe 50 people inside. Da hell! Also, after finally get to the front, we were told it’s an additional $40 because we had on timberland boots. I informed them we’re not from here and didn’t know there was a “no boot” policy. She then said she’ll charge us $20. We just said screw it and paid it since we came from out of town. This place is a joke. Several artists that I would have loved to seen have been here, but I’m never going back. Too many games. Long lines for no reason. Kid sized cups drinking cups — literally paid $20 for a jack and ginger. People with tables weren’t even happy from what I could see. One girl said their glasses were dirty and it took over an hour to get a bottle and the server never came back. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Go somewhere else.

Big Sexy: There was no line and me and my 14 friends were seated immediately!! Definitely go there is NO WAIT!! And dont get me started on the cocktails MMmmmMMMmm!!

Nick Andrews: This place should be shut down after propping up a dead body on stage for a funeral. If they didn’t know it was going to happen then shame on management.

Rosebar Lounge: what do users think?


Tiara: I wouldn't recommend this spot for people visiting looking to have a comfortable section to drink and smoke hookah. We booked this section in advanced and told them how many people were in our party. Our section was SUPER small and included an even smaller coffee table and an extended bench. How can seven people use 1 small coffee table. I thought that they would have atleast recommended a larger section based the number of people, but all the sections were pretty much the same size, which resulted in people piling up on benches or standing to get to the hookah or their drinks.

Lane McCall: Pros - Clean environment - Beautiful aesthetics - Great lighting effects - I got compliments lol Cons - Most bartenders are rude - $20 cover (cash only) - Venu is small and cramped - Music was severely lacking

Carson Goff: Come to this bar if you want to fear for your life. Worst crowd of any bar in DuPont. Avoid at all costs.

Tracey Hart: i fly down to dc once in a while to visit friends and family and was very disappointed to learn this place was boring and colorist. They apparently dont hire women of deeper complexions and their waitresses are online arguing, being fatphobic, and unprofessional. I could never do that and expect to keep my job but of course this place has no standards so im not too surprised. Spend your money somewhere else.

Google User: Guess you gotta be a somebody to get a table or section here, I reached out way in advance before my birthday letting them know I was interested in getting a table for when I come celebrate my birthday. Someone responded asked for my contact info, left me on read and never heard from them again. It would’ve been my first time in DC and my first time going here.

Shaneaka R.: The music was great in the room all the way to the back. Loved the decor on the ceiling. You must have to reserve the hookah because it was sold out.

soccerqueen181: Not professional! From the hiring process to the social media presence they do not know how to conduct business. They also refuse to hire women of color which is confusing because DC is referred to as chocolate city. Definitely take your business elsewhere because they need to actually learn how to run an establishment properly.

Ed E: This place is a waste of time and money. Bad music, overpriced drinks, they want to charge a lot of money to get in, bully bouncers pushing people because they feel less in their small brains, small space. There are many other options in DC than this awful place.

Mrs. A: Entirely to small inside. They had it packed and it was no room to dance shoot we barely could walk. It definitely was giving kiss whoever is in front of you vibes. I hated it and I think they were desperate for money the way they squeezed everybody in there. I was literally only there for 15min and that was just tryna use the bathroom. I paid my money just too pee I never enjoyed myself couldn't even raise my hands

Brandon Jones: It might very well be awesome, but when I went, it was deadlocked in the back bar.

jayde corinne: The Bollywood Bhool Bhulaiyaa was awesome last night! Manan K did a Uber job on this event. Can't wait to check out his next one! Was my first of this type event so cool.

Vincent Nyeko: The owner is a mean and greedy guy. He calls this place heaven and hell but there's no DJ downstairs and the place is extremely boring. Do not waste your money going there!!!

Therese Leyva: I came for seven minutes in heaven but what I got was two hours of hell I’ve never seen such bad customer service in my life who wrote your policies and can I please get them to rewrite trumps policies thank you

sid reynolds: Had a great time. Perfect drinks the best margarita I've had in a long time... Great 80S VS 90S NIGHT IN WASHINGTON DC.. I'LL BE BACK NEXT SATURDAY...

jimmy Dormeus: Come turn up on Fridays & Saturdays with DJ HK on the ones and twos

Andrae Taggart: Place is nice for a fun night out great location

Grigol Makharadze: This is a dance club. They do not have live music. but only DJ. We didn't know that. But anyway stayed there. The place has enough space to dance for 15-20 people. They do check age. There is no entrance fee

7Figga Dreamz: I mean compared to some of the other clubs, yea this place might not be the best, but when i went, i had a blast. I liked the environment. I seen one persons negative comment saying it was like someones living room, your righr, it was like back when we used to have house parties in aparments.i cam go on and on about what i liked about the place.

Lolita Brogsdale: Nice people. It's crowded on the weekends but always be safe during your travels

R2bchic: Hip hop and rap bar. The place to go for a good time and ratchet turn up.

Kristal “Kick it With Kristal” Bartley: This was a very nice vibe for Poetry on a Wednesday night in DC.I love the lights and hookahs! Limited parking.Street Parking.Security.Clean.Limited Seating. Multilevel. Art. Outside seating. I’d come back.

cryto account: Best nightclub in Washington DC period!!! we came to celebrate my friends birthday, bouncers at the door were very nice and friendly, we were able to order everything we needed on QR code from our table and everything came to us with blazing fast speed, honestly i was pretty impressed, even when we needed Charcoal for the hookah we ordered from QR code it came to us right away, Dj is really on point, over all it was well worth and we had a blast, lastly please don't trust reviews here because everyone try to express negative not positive aspect.

Big Moment: I been in many clubs in Washington DC before and this is the first time i'm writing a review, the story of the owner is extremely impressive, from almost homeless to owning a club this magnitude? I had a chance to speak to the owner and his story is unbelievable, what impressed me most is that he made this club himself without hiring any contractor whats so ever, the lighting and sound is better than any clubs i seen in the area guarantee!! and his passion to make everyone happy is impressive. Glad I came. I'll come more often cheers.

erik rodriguez: I was traveling to see a old friend of mine from high school I had big expectations for the capital of the United States, being that I was only gonna be in town for only 2 nights I was hoping the one night we could go out would be a blast, unfortunately the could be further from the truth. First the bouncers were VERY rude to us and for most of the people in line to the point were there could’ve been an altercation between us, but we tried to not let that ruin our night, thinks only got worse from there. We requested a table before hand and pay a good bit to get it, turns out they couldn’t give us the table because they apparently already gave it to another group, things could’ve be fine if we simply got our refund but unfortunately that wasn’t the case, after pleading our case over and over with to the management we decided to leave CLUB ELEVATE to go to some bar down the road before heading back home with this bad taste in our mouths. Would not recommend this place even to my enemies. Thumbs down

Claude: Wish I could give 0 stars. This is a horrible club that I would not recommend to anyone. Poor management, poor customer service and a poor upkeep of the establishment. The main issue I had was with the owner. Impossible to get in contact with, even through a middleman - the bottle girl. Didn't keep his word when he told me that I would be refunded the $600 I was rightfully owed - so essentially stole from me. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere for a fun, enjoyable night out.

terry: When I was 10 years old I had a dream. A dream so vivid that I woke up frantically from my bed, and ran to my mothers bedside crying. When asked what’s wrong all I could muster was “they robbed me”. To my surprise, it almost seemed like dejavu when I realized Club Elevate refused to refund me for a section I never used. $600 is what I paid. $600 is what I will never get back. All I can ask is that as someone reading this review, as someone who is considering attending such a terrible establishment, please “elevate” your standards and go elsewhere. I leave you with a quote by Winston Churchill and he said “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Even without the $600 in my bank account, I will continue to live, I will continue to prosper. But I will never, and I mean never, stop hating on Club Elevate. In other words, DONT COME HERE.

Shukriyyah Greaves: This place desperately wants to be an upscale club but for the amount of money I rather go to echo stage or 9:30 club . They want you to pay 5 star prices just so they can serve you drinks out of red solo cups. The booths are falling apart dingy like an old dennys. The door person or whomever they are was in sweat pants collecting payment like she rolled out of bed. Can’t enforce a dress code if your staff looks homey. The bottle service girls are cute , bartenders are great and can make a decent cocktail. The owner is oblivious cheap so this club reads cheap which is unfortunate. Don’t plan on going back here, this felt like a last stop for minors or a place for kids because they didn’t really card and the standards are appropriate for such . We had fun dancing. It was a good crowd, felt safe, the woman to man ratio was about 4-1 which is a bonus anywhere ! Just had the plastic cup situation and the cheap furniture…like come on, and of course the bathroom was disgusting and probably only gets cleaned in the morning.

Malick Dakama: A bit disappointing 😞. The place is a bit expensive for the overall quality of the place. The DJ was all over the place and letting people down in the middle of good songs; not if he was noticing the empty dance right after each time he does that. But the staff was very nice. Elevate can do better!

ange bara: Was there in MAR-2022. There was a mixup with section selection on their part. We payed for a section upstairs but we're on a bottom floor section and THEY CHARGED US FOR BOTH???? THEN DIDNT REFUND. Would NOT recommend

Byron Medina: Absolutely worst establishment in the DC area, stole $600 from me and after being promised a refund has been terrible to communicate with as he hasn’t responded to me. Wish I could leave zero stars and never come back ever again.

Club Timehri: what do users think?


K A: My first experience at Club Timehri was a good one. It’s a totally different vibe for me. But I must say the music was so good that I couldn’t help but dance. Overall, I had a great time. First time here and I shall definitely revisit. I highly recommend if you want to have a feel of the Caribbean night life! Good Service ✅ Good Vibes ✅ Very Friendly And Courteous Staff✅ 🚻Restroom
Response: Thank you for your review KA! We love new people trying out our venue and especially love it when you had a great time. Look forward to you visiting again. One LoVe!

Ileri Ogunfiditimi, Lifestyle Entrepreneur: Positive island and multicultural vibes in the city! The ONLY authentic Caribbean dancehall club left in DC! (If you remember "Old DC" and Georgia Ave Caribbean Carnival, you know what I'm talking about). DJ spins Soca, Reggae, Afrobeat, Reggaeton, and international music. Bartenders, owners, and staff are friendly and customer service top notch. The patrons get down too! No "wall flowers" at this spot. 😁 ALWAYS a great experience at Timehri.
Response: Thank you! It means a lot to us when a customer who knows the scene and what DC has to offer in our genre writes us a review like yours. Much appreciated. We look forward to entertaining you in the future. One LoVe!

Green Roses: I visited becoz of the good reviews. True, its wonderful. Nice vibe. Music was more soca. I hope more reagge can be played since Timehri is the home of Reagge. The bartenders were grooving like no joke. They were fast in getting the drink orders. The crowd was on fire-grooving like oh my. Music was kainda too loud for me, so I stepped away from the main floor. Thumps up. Well done Timehri. Good job. I will return with more pple.
Response: Thank you for visiting! We love to hear our guests enjoyed themselves. We try to keep a nice mix and usually it’s always more Reggae than soca so the DJ must have had some fans in his ear. Please check us out again when you’re in the neighborhood. One LoVe!

Samuel Ondieki: The music was good, the bartenders, security and owners were very nice and professional. Would most def visit again and recommend to any looking to have a lit night in DC

Celine Aka-Koffi: Visiting DC from New York, we came to Club Timehri two nights in a row. The Carribean music selection is so good. Drinks are good as well. There is a $10 cash only cover charge per person to get in.
Response: Thank you for visiting! Happy to hear you enjoyed yourself and we look forwarding to entertaining you on your next trip to the city. One LoVe!

Shaneka Boothe: The owner and the workers here are wonderful omg I enjoyed it so much I came here two nights back to back they took real good care of us from the dj to the bartender to the owner they made sure we enjoyed our night and made sure we was safe Johnny your great your a real humble and we appreciate you thank you and your employees for the wonderful care and customer services you guys provided Washington DC doesn’t owe us anything thanks to you and your wonderful employees #yournewfloridafriends
Response: Shaneka, we enjoyed having you and the crew. You are welcome at Timehri every time you visit the city. Dont forget to check in on us on IG @clubtimehri. Until the next time…. One LoVe!

Imani Thibou: My experience is usually great here but on NYE I went and the music was way too loud, my ears were ringing for days afterwards. With it being such a small space it made the experience unenjoyable
Response: Hi Imani, we are very sorry to hear this and I will be honest, we had a new processor installed the day before and had some issues properly tuning the system. We have since resolved the issue and would love you to give us another try. Also please ask for a manager and allow us to treat you for giving us another chance. Thank you, Mgmt.

Pharaoh Jonez: Let me tell you buddy. I was out one night bored and stumbled on this place. I got so drunk here that I ended up having the best time of my adult life. They are EXTREMELY good at mixing drinks. I mean to the point where my Long Island tasted like a sweet tea but hit like 5 shots of Henny. The bar tenders are hilarious, and it wasn’t the liquor laughing. They legit must be trained in comedy. Lastly some fine woman bit me on my back and I think I found true that night. But overall this place is a definite YES in my book.
Response: Pharaoh, this made our day! When our customers have a great time it makes us appreciate all we do to facilitate the good times and great memories created. Thank you stumbling by and definitely let us know the next time you visit. One LoVe!

Hector Sobers: If you love reggae music like me this club is the place to be on Thursday,Friday and Saturday. And to me it has the cheapest drinks in DC you wouldn't regret the visit and the customer service is great always a friendly crowd
Response: Love it when our customers enjoyed the music, and lets not forget the drinks. Hope you visit us again soon. One Love!

Waverly Renee: Good mix of Reggae Caribbean hip-hop music. Parking it's pretty bad at night. Drinks are reasonable price and there is a cover charge.
Response: Thanks for visiting. Parking is a struggle, and usually easier the earlier you arrive. We also only charge a cover on Friday and Saturday nights after 11 PM. Thank you. Mgmt

Phantom Lounge: what do users think?


Patrick Murphy: DON’T COME HERE! Worst Club in entire D.C. metro area. Have both been too and held private events at many clubs in the D.C. area and this was by far the worst experience. Drinks were incredibly over priced, then hardly any liquor was poured in them, while they basically used sippy cups. Not to mention the automatic 23% gratuity, then having the bartenders ignore you if you don’t tip on top of that. Our group rented out the venue for a 2 hour event, and you would think if you pay to rent out the venue you would be treated with a little bit of respect and hospitality. Not at Phantom. The bouncers could not have been more arrogant and rude. I felt like I was at daycare or prison, I couldn’t tell which one. Save your money & time by not coming here. Go elsewhere in D.C. Worst place I’ve ever been too.
Response: We're sorry you had a negative experience we strive for a first class environment, please email me so we can rectify the situation. Jason.mccarther@gmail.com

latosha Lewis: "Friday Night Live" This spot is AWESOME! Last night was my first time going to this spot and I will most definitely be returning. (We had a booth upstairs for my brothers birthday) The staff including the manager we're super cool, friendly, relaxed, patient and helpful. The music was jumping all d@$# night omg... They do rounds checking bathrooms to make sure us ladies are safe(Super A+🤗) I found my new spot! Y'all better get into it...

Gisela R: I love the vibes here, but the prices they add to your bill are high. One of my bills was 60 in total and somehow got charged 30 dollars more on my card....

FastlaneProductions1: This place has some really cool atmosphere and unique music tastes. So it has cool vibes. The only problem I had is that they charge cover fee for dudes (I imagine for ratio), but there were like 10 dudes per girl. Mad hatter next door has no cover charge and has a solid 1:1 guy/girl ratio. But it's a trade-off I guess because this place has better atmosphere, however the drinks are overpriced, even for the area. If they served nice cocktails, I'd get it, but it's basically just jack and coke or vodka and sprite for $12 a pop.

Junaid Siddiqui: Nothing special about the place. Similar to other venues/clubs in the Dupont Circle area., but they do have a small balcony area inside with tables overlooking the club. The $40 cover charge is somewhat outrageous. Most places with a cover around here is usually $20. That doesn’t add to the exclusivity of a place. There are amazing lounges all over DC that don’t charge. On a positive note, the drinks were nice.
Response: Mr. Siddiqui we're sorry you feel that way. Most nights we are open without cover. When we have big djs from around the world play we have a variable cover charge. Please visit our IG page for pre event pricing and details.

Meagan Martin: Went to this place last weekend with my friends. The music was fun and trendy. The club is better than any other clubs in DC. The staff is what really makes Phantom a pleasurable experience. We had a bottle girl who's name was Liz, she was the most fun and inviting bottle girl I've ever had. I felt like we were friends the way she was taking care of our table. Will definetly return with more friends. Thanks Liz and Phantom staff for a great night.

Kara Sorrell: One of the BEST night clubs I have been to in DC! My friends & I got a table and the cocktails were amazing! Never had to ask for anything very attentive and a great atmosphere! Definitely will be coming back and recommending to others!

Dhruv Garg: Julio and George are very supporting and very great customer service, they have a great care towards the customers.

David Carvajal: Only thing wrong with the place was the sheer number of people present. Took a while to get drinks because the bar staff were overwhelmed. Very nice nightclub overall

Anusha Balani: phantom is definitely my favorite lounge in DC. the staff is so nice & the bouncer Ty is so dope. we literally came here four days in a row. 💯💯💯

Abigail: what do users think?


April Holder: Everything was good until the DJ. Honestly, pregame before you get here for brunch. They don't pay attention to the customers or what they want to here. Managers and staff take your request and throw them away. The music is so bad it throws you off and makes you want to go to the bar and drink your sorrows away. So! Pre game before you get here so you can ignore how bad the music is.

Eduardo Alcazar: TOTAL SCAM. DO NOT COME HERE. They advertise "open bar Fridays" IT'S A LIE. They are only willing to give you a ticket for ONE free drink. On top of that, we came on a night where they randomly claimed "we have a special dj and aren't giving free drinks" and refused to give us our free drinks. The bar is empty, has no one, and not worth coming.

DJ TankBeats: The bar is nice looking and really modern, but there is one staff member who believes he is GOD and kicked me out of the DJ booth after 3-4 hrs of rocking the joint then tell me to see him outside and had My Wife, Friends and other staff members get my DJ equipment out of the club! Oh and he works at the door at St. Yves!

Serguel Akiti: DON’T GO To THE ABIGAIL! As Howard Students we decided to patronize a local black venue. We arrived in a group of 12, 5 gentlemen and 7 ladies. Security let the first 2 ladies in for free. From there, the night went down hill. Although we arrived while the venue was still empty, the older gentleman at security decided after the 2 ladies, “everybody is paying $20.” When we asked if we could use a card or if they had an atm, we were directed to the bank across the street. One member of the group pointed out how the policy makes no sense, if we have to pay, there should be a way to pay on site. We were told at that point, “you don’t have to come in then.” The policy felt sketchy and very discretionary. Please patronize black venues, however save your money, time, and energy. DON’T GO TO THE ABIGAIL!

Ryan R: Abigails was decent. First time going there this past weekend and unless you have a table reserved its nothing more than a straight walk from the entrance to the bar. The space to socialize is the path along the bar and straight towards the back to the restrooms. To the right after entering is more spacious but reserved for VIPs and blocked off by ropes. Still a decent spot to hit up for a night out

Aidan Pillard: I've now been on both an average weekend night and New Years, and it felt like a complete rip-off both times. Cover is always too high. On NYE, they promised an open bar and appetizers, but all they had was cognac. Other drinks are ridiculously over-priced. They close lots of space for VIP tickets, and didn't open the dance floor all night on New Years. Many far better clubs within a couple blocks.

Amy Shimano: This place is dump. No cash at entry, $40 cover, $18 for weak drinks, rude staff outside, no college students allowed. Don't go here.

Miguel Castro: Buyer beware. Tickets bought through Eventbrite is a scam. Cover charge is overpriced. Venue is a joke.

K Hera: Security was rude and inconsiderate. Wouldn't let me back in when I was outside and discovered my debt card was missing nor to let me get my sweater from the coat rank that was just 3ft from the entrance even while it was freezing cold outside.

Emmet Devlin: Came for a holiday party costing $50 a head, venue cut off the open bar half way through in an announcement then service proceeded to be terrible. Wouldn’t suggest booking this place in the future

Living Room DC: what do users think?


Sara O'Day: If I could give this place zero stars I would. Went to a show they were hosting (didn’t go during club hours). Their ATM inside was broken and I needed cash so I was instructed by a security member inside and the bartender to go to the ATM right next door and I would be allowed back in. The bouncer at the door stopped me and told me I would only be allowed to go back inside if I hooked up with him later and then kissed me without my consent. When I was able to get back in (with a little help from a kind stranger) I went to tell the security member what happened and he took me to the manager. The manager said he would “review” the tape but there was nothing else he could do. Upon returning to my friends the party sitting next to us told me this isn’t the first time this has happened at this spot and management does nothing. I had to have a security member walk me out at the end of the show because I was freaking out.

Laura Murgas: My review if for the bar part. The bartender was a blond woman, no idea of her name but she was not nice at all. We got tequila shots and we got charged a 20% mandatory tip (which is insane when there is literally no preparation in a plan shot) and I ask her for salt and she responded super rude and never got me the salt.

Justin David Kondrat: HOMOPHOBIC atmosphere within lack luster costumer service. I was shocked that places like this still exist in D.C. With blatant tokenizing of people of color for bridal parties I felt extremely uncomfortable. I felt bad for the Drag performers since they were wonderful but not sure why/how an art form such as Drag matches with such backward thinking , services and atmosphere. It was very odd to say the least. If Zero stars were an option I would follow other Google reviewers. I discourage supporting places like this as their outward disrespect justify racist, homophonic and poor business practices. Yikes!!! There are plenty of other places in DC that can fit your needs while respecting all of the communities in our society. I need some sage and a long shower.

J A: First red flag: There were no people in line and we entered through the lane that was most direct of our walking path. The security said if we didn’t have a table we have to walk to the other lane that was LITERALLY 5 STEPS AWAY WITH NO LINES IN EITHER LANES. Second red flag: I ordered five shots and the old women bartender automatically added a $10 tip to the tab. Third red flag: the Dj had ZERO sense of good music. He played gasolina and danza Kuduro OVER THREE TIMES. One time is enough. The dj played oldddddd 2000s songs like bed rock. Fourth red flag: Males at this place are truly disgusting. They cannot keep their hands to themselves. They get angry if you deny yourself to speak to them. Security sees males harassing females and turn a blind eye until you have to approach them and tell them you’re being harassed. Bottom line: I do not recommend this place if you want an eventful night. DC has a lot of night life and this is by far my worst experience. Females, save yourself from disappointment.

Milan Mittra, Esq.: Worst DJ that exists in DC. Terrible music, all night. He has no skill. Just the worst, most boring music you can imagine…..ALL NIGHT LONG…. Painful experience…..avoid this DJ!! Stay away from the Living Room!

LaShondra Graham: Went here for a show. The drinks were overpriced and the club was very small. I enjoyed the show, but the club was just...meh 🤷🏾‍♀️

Allister Joseph: The door was $20 at late light which is fine. Most of the staff girls are not friendly. The drinks are expensive. $18 for a shot of Casamigos. Its either she profiled or just didnt feel to do it but charged me $450 for a single bottle. No offense, but why is DC rivaling NYC prices on bottles? Especially there isn't a decent VIP area to enjoy it? It's 350 in NY btw. They didnt bottom out with me because the music is a decent urban mix. Not to mention one of the guys moping the floor stared me in the face and mopped my feet. So disgusted with the service and attitude of the staff here. I had a better time at SoundCheckd the previous night. Not sure I'll ever go here if I'm in the DC area again.

miranda raney: Paid a $20 cover for each of my (4) friends and I this past Friday night and was told mine was taken care of because it was my birthday. Just checked my bank account and was actually charged $120 ($40 over what I was told). Poor experience on top of being lied to and over-charged at the door. Super disappointed in this place.

edward adams: Great place to have a get together awesome DJs wonderful visual attractions the staff was incredible I can’t wait to go back and have a party with all of my friends and meet some new ones

Veronica Lusetti: Went to Living Room DC to celebrate a friend's birthday. At the bar they asked me to leave both my credit card and my ID to order. I gave the bartender both of my cards and ordered two rail drinks. Didn't order anything else for the rest of the night. I left in a hurry and forgot to get my cards back from the bartender. I went back twice on Thursday nights after 9pm to try to recover my cards but was told I have to arrive at 9pm sharp. Finally on my third attempt I was able to speak with a bouncer he pulled out a small box and checked under the first letter of my last name and told me my cards were not in there. I asked if he could search the rest of the box as maybe the cards were misplaced. He refused to do so, I was frustrated so went back home to order replacement. I checked my bank statement and Living Room charged me a total of $173 for the two drinks I ordered that night. Never going back there again.

Opera Ultra Lounge: what do users think?


Denise Morris: Fun place the music selection is a nice mix of hip hop r&b Afro beats and a bit Latin but def they feel the audience .. bathroom ls are typical for the club… we had a section and it was cool
Response: Nice partying with you Denise! Don't be shy and feel free to put us on to any music that gets you feeling yourself, we got you! 😉 We hope to have you and your friends back next weekend!

Tina M: I was surprised when first walking in how small this place is. The lights and decor are nice.. but that's where it ends. I approached bar for a drink and 3 bartenders just stood there, it was not busy. Finally one asked if I wanted a drink. The entire area for tables is roped off, so unless you have table service you are treated like second class. No where to sit. The tables surround the "dance floor" so forget dancing unless you're doing it directly in front of DJ both or bar. The bathroom is HORRIBLE. Only 2 of 4 toilets working. Poor lighting. Crowded. Paint chipping. A lady sitting on an old folding chair to take tips for handing your a Paper towel, showing you to open stall (there's only 2 options) , and keeping it tidy. With the place looking "fancy" from the outside and lighting effects inside you would think the bathroom would be posh. Hell no. I didn't even WANT to sit in those stalls. The staff lacked any type of enthusiasm. It was an awful experience and I'll never return.

Eboni: Definitely enjoyed myself for my sisters bday party!! The place was JUMPING🙂
Response: It's cause it was your sister's bday! 😉 Lol it's always JUMPING, but you made our night that much extra, thank you Eboni!

Jayla Green: I got a table here about 3years ago & paid over $800. The bouncer came to kick us out of the section because we wasn’t keeping bottles coming. I would never support this club again.

renee gilliam: It was a great place with a lot of security!! The only thing is you pay a lot for a table that doesn't give you a lot of room!!!
Response: Thank you Renee! We appreciate the feedback, we're always working on improving our customer experience, we hope to party again with you soon!

Nicole Johnson: Went here on Saturday and it was sooo packed you couldn’t even see the lay out of the venue! And it was $40 per person for a cover charge!!! I have been to WAY better clubs in Vegas & Miami and never paid that for a cover in my life! Not worth it!

April: First time partying in DC this place is amazing I definitely recommend for a great night out
Response: Thanks April, come party with us again!

K B: Service is terrible. Bouncers are rude. Hookah is electronic. I will never come here by choice, just when invited. I only gave it two stars because the inside looks nice.

Evan Ney: I want to give this place a five star, but I can't. The bartenders and manager are excellent. The bartenders serve fast,efficient and tasty drinks. The manager is quick to solve any problems. The staff at the door are dismissive, rude and ignorant. There are times when I couldn't get in because of them. Contact the manager directly on Facebook. This tends to alleviate problems. You may want to consider going somewhere else, if you rely on the use of a wheelchair, though. The staff at the front door will tell you they forgot he key to the elevator or the person that has it isn't there, despite the fact that the manager can get you in. The staff at the door make me feel discriminated against. If you use a wheelchair, you may just want to go, to see what I mean. It is not professional at all. I never see anyone that uses a wheelchair going there If you do manage to make it inside, you'll have an exceptional time.

Ari: Awesome DC venue! They book the best DJs in the city, I always have a so much fun with my friends. Security is professional and thorough, and all of the bartenders and cocktail waitresses are amazing. They all make sure everyone is taken care of and has a good time. If you're looking for a party, this is the place to be!
Response: Thank you Ari, happy to know you had a great time with us, we not only pick the best DJs, but also the best staff. Can't wait to party with you and your friends again soon!

Flash: what do users think?


Spencer W.: One of the best clubs around this area. Sound system sounds great, always got good music going on, and the rooftop bar is really cool! Only thing I can think of that people might not like is that there is no screens in the place. Only lights so that's means no visuals. If your in need of some good drinks, good music, and a great sound system then flash is the place for you!

Michael Jaffee: Unlike any venue in DC and unlike majority of lounge style intimate clubs you’ve been to in the US. The music is incredibly unique for DC as they play deep house, tech, tech house, and other amazing sub-genres and the initiate dark setting with the [flash]ing lights is like nowhere you’ve ever been. It’s an absolute must if you’ve never been or are visiting DC and are trying to go vibe/dance the night away.

Aránzazu Ascunce: State of the art with a massive function one sound system. Multiple levels. Amazing lights, service, hospitality, staff. Global deejays regularly. Shout out to the booking agent. Come as you are. Not pretentious. The only rule is no flash at Flash. Highly recommend it to get your dance on and a pulse on the global underground. See you soon!

Ayesha SH: This is a hardcore EDM club. They have the rooftop, second floor and ground floor. The night I was there, all three areas had different DJ’s. You have to buy tickets on the website to get it - reasonably priced. Very decent crowd. The manager is Boris and he is awesome! Please visit and you will love it.

Denonte McKinney: I hope management reads this because coming to Flash was absolutely the worst experience ever. First of all, they made us stand outside in the drizzling rain until nearly 1:30am because we didn’t purchase a ticket online. The security guards rationale was, “Because of Covid we have to monitor the number of people coming in.” This does not make sense because masks are NOT required for admission, people with tickets are able to walk in without proof of vaccination, and they let everyone in anyways. Making a crowd of paying customers wait 1-2 hours for admission into a BAR is ridiculous. Also, they only have a CASH admission. In 2022, I need for this venue to upgrade and get a card reader, outside ATM, or cash app because the ATMs in the area are closed after 5pm. Yes, the bank ATMs (BOA & WF) close their doors at 5pm. You have to walk BLOCKS to grab cash and to come back. Lastly, the security guards are rude. They were shouting out, “If you have a tickets you can come right to the front, and if you don’t then IDK what to tell you” to the 50+ people waiting in line in the drizzling rain, this was inconsiderate & inappropriate. Mind you the security guards at the entrance are eating pizza, smoking cigarettes, and completely disregarding the crowd. My suggestions for management are: 1. Allow ALL paying customers admission into the venue. Do NOT make them wait in the drizzling rain for 1-2 hours when there are BARELY people going inside with a ticket. 2. Let customers pay via CashApp OR allow paying customers to use their cards/Apple Pay to purchase tickets at the door. It’s 2021. 3. Do not use Covid as an excuse to not allow people in when you’re going to let them in regardless. 4. Hire new security guards. I am very disappointed in this venue. Hopefully by next week they’ll at least have CashApp.

Charles P.: I love this place but the girl working the ticket booth at about 10:45 on 3/25 couldn’t believe that I didn’t realize it was an offsite ticket for Pot-Pan. She was pretty rude. I get being worn down by the end of the night, but to be in such a way 45 minutes into her shift was impressive. Or depressive? Muuuuust be rough. Not for her. But for the people who have to work with her.

Louis V: Great place to go out and dance. I met a lot of nice people and had a lot of fun. Music was awesome, drink was excellent and not so expansive.

Fern M: During this pandemic time, Flash has turn its rooftop space to a sit down place for Electronic music lover. Reservation is required for seats with 90 mins time limited. Same regulation of wearing mask, remain seated etc. are applied. Sandwiches menu are added along with drink menu. It seems like drinks were customized for fall season, we tried all the cocktails on the menu but only 2 we like( don’t remember the name.) It was ok, we were happy to help support the place and at the end of the night, we ordered our favorite drinks out of menu instead. The staff are super nice and attentive, ask them question regarding to the venue if you want to know more. The merchandise downstairs is for purchase helping support the place. Ask staff for the website or if you have problem access it like I did, they accept cash. They said they might open for brunch with live DJ on set. If we all keep supporting this business, I’m sure we will get to have one of the coolest brunch place in DC soon. Review as of 09/2020

Bryan Thomas: I was refused entry specifically because I had a suit on. You read that correctly. They apparently have an absurd 'no suit' policy—one bouncer said I may check my suit jacket but another chimed in and said I actually couldn't, which the initial bouncer seemed confused by but conceded. I honestly thought they were joking. When I asked why, they said, "In case you get a drink spilled on you." Such a bizarre experience that I couldn't help but be amused rather than offended in the moment. Told the story to others who confirmed it had happened to a friend of theirs too. About a decade ago, Flash was an amazing venue but it's become tragically pretentious. That's not what House music is about, which is the biggest shame.

Nicholas Caudill: Maybe it’s my fault for showing up too late, but if the doors open at 10PM and the headliner is already gone by midnight that isn’t a real party. Cool building though

Aqua: what do users think?


bFly Young: Hot as the devils home once it got packed. TCB & I'm TCB4LIFE had the house rocking down and the crowded night partying until the end of their set.

Layvizzle Vision: Okay aqua is like really about like a 3.5. the parking eh kind of sucks. But the inside is cute not really big it's a small club. But when it's packed it's really cute the music is usually good I always have a good time.

Andre Brandon: The Aqua use to be a nice club to enjoy yourself. But now they allow smoking, it's hard to enjoy yourself. The Club needs a Separate place for the smokers to smoke. Everyone doesn't smoke.. YOUR CLOTHES WILL SMELL like SMOKE.

Mike Corbett: First time there it was cool. Some of the services could be improved. From security trying to charge to reenter for leaving extra funds in car. And $15 for a fre wings and handful of fries??.. The carryout does better amd you get a drink most times...

Lamont Ambrister: Really nice spot. Great music. Great crowd i had a ball.

Ricardo Edmonds: Haven't been out in awhile, I enjoyed myself but the after affect with the weed smell, in your clothes, hair etc. wasn't a good thing for me

Sabrena: Had a nice time at Aqua, live band EU was there

HersheyKiss Shelton: One way in one way out, makes you think twice abt going in.

T Phenyx: I'm always overcharge every time I go there

Ryan Hawkins: Good place to go for a late night party.

Public Bar Live: what do users think?


Alexandra Spataro: This place is so fun and lots of different beverages to pick from! Going during the day Saturday was a good choice! It seemed like a couple events were going on where people were celebrating something and getting bottle service so that made the place have even more energy (bubbles, signs every couple of minutes, DJ, beach ball thrown, etc). Only con is that the rooftop deck is not stiletto friendly, ladies you WILL get your heel stuck between the planks; you have been warned. Cheers!

Aziza Nabila: Love this bar! We had so much fun on the rooftop on Saturday. It’s definitely a vibe and one of the BEST HOT SPOTS in the city. The staff was so friendly and service was great! Get a VIP table so you don’t have to wait in line. The bottle girls are the best and know how to party. Tables sell out super quick so reserve them early or they’ll put you on their waiting list.

JW: Empty dance floor inside and bouncer at the door was rude - required individual masks for each party despite NO ONE having masks on inside. Place had an empty dance floor on Saturday night (10-11 pm). We went to Mayflower instead and had a much better time. Get some new bouncers if you want to have any business.

Erick Gonzalez: Great venue with a small yet pleasant rooftop. The music is excellent and was played at the right volume. The bartenders and the staff were very polite. I would say that it's growing as one of my favorite spots in the area for taking out friends and enjoying a night out.

Shannon Clark: My mom and I enjoyed a night out on the Rooftop while my daughter attended a local concert. Everyone was so polite and friendly. The bartenders were awesome and so was the female security guard that helped me to safely escort my mom down the stairs. The music kept us dancing and the wings were delicious. We were only in town for the weekend from North Carolina, but if we come back I'd like to turn-up again at Public Bar Live!
Response: Thank you for the lovely review Shannon. We hope to see you all again soon.

Diana Bermudez: Good place for games but gets super, super packed. Try to reserve a table if you can.
Response: Thank you for your review Diana and we would like set you up with a table for all your needs thought the night. If that’s not something you’re interested in we would love your input on what you’re more interested in. DM us for more.

nohemi garcia: Been there on Sunday , mix music.🎶 not a big place. But you can Dance and have fun. Prices on drinks are fair enough. 🍸 bartenders working hard there and provide great service.

Lisa M: Got completely scammed by this place and our whole friend group got robbed while inside the club. We got a VIP table and it was not worth it at all. Would never recommend this place to anyone. Music was mediocre and there were way too many people to do anything but stand still. There are much better places to go in dc. This was our first time going and it will definitely be the last. We ordered some bottles then immediately got kicked out and they let tons of random people in our sections. This place SUCKSSSSSSS.

Omar Hamad: This is a fraudulent establishment. To say they have a lack of internal coordination and customer service would be generous. They need an organizational facelift with new and somewhat competent management who can at least give the appearance of relatively caring about their customers. Do yourself a favor and take your business elsewhere.

Juan Varela: Music and vibes are incredible. One of the best spots to party in DC. Lee and Mariah are two of the best I’ve met in the hospitality industry in any city! Wish there were more places like this in DC and more people at bars and clubs like Lee and Mariah!!

Erica Kearney: The Drinks Are Juice It’s No Champagne At All In The Mimosas I Wasted An Outfit Coming Here There Was No Food The Fat Manger Was Very Rude When Asking Questions About Where Is The Food. Then They Made Their TOGO Plates First Before Serving Us. hookah 80$ Please After Paying 60 To Drink Juice And Eat Old Grits Save Ya Money The Scenery Is Cute But That’s It.

Alex: Went around 9 pm and the bouncer told me I looked drunk and asked me if I had been somewhere else beforehand. I had 2-3 drinks with a friend at another bar beforehand and told him this. He at first refused to let me in, but after I specifically asked why I wasn't let in, he let me in. My friend was charged 22 dollars for a shot here. There are better bars/clubs

203Whitty: Sunday was horrible and I really wanted my money back. Arrived at 1 and most of the food on the top floor was already gone. Had to keep walking back to the next level just to get food, that was nasty. The mimosa was all juice. Will never return again.

Tiara Welch: Couple things I noted about brunch: 1) was on the second floor, the entire second floor had one waitress/server for the whole floor. 2) they were giving us juice with no champagne for bottomless mimosas (check your glass for bubbles) 3) buffet server was using his hands to serve French toast and bacon 4) music is solid. 5) Salmon was my favorite. — overall the food was good for my experience. 6) the crowd was very very young.. like, college kids pretending to be Cardi B & the Migos.

A Lee: Rip off!! They have free entry on eventbrite. The girl at the hostess stands say it’s 60 each to get in: that would have been fine if you we didn’t eat at Air Lounge: the food is better btw. Rip off!! They deserve zero stars!! We were willing to buy drinks but not brunch. The girl looked Asian btw: that way you will know who we worked with.

Carissa Nicole: Yesterday was my first time back since 2018 (went for brunch). The food was really good but cold!!! Mimosas were juiced down (could barely taste the champaign). Drinks are BEYOND overpriced (paid $32 for two shots of crown royal, CROWN ROYAL, before the added gratiuity). Depending on where you're seated, you're going to be hand fanning yourself. $60 isn't worth it, specifically because the mimosas are very weak. If y'all do better with the mimosas, $60 would be more doable ...and tell your buffet servers to stop throwing food on your patrons' plates smh

Jayda Brown: Great vibes. Good food. I’m not sure why it’s so hot in there please fix your air conditioning. Other than Ozios being a sauna , I highly recommend for girls brunch !

Kevin Gaines: Paid 120 for me and my girlfriend brunch was told bottomless mimosas but it would come every other hour and also was told all u can eat but they ran out of food but the atmosphere and music was vibe

Michael Benissan: I visited with a group of friends during the late afternoon hours on a Sunday while on a short trip to DC. When we first entered, I noticed a laid back lounge vibe and wondered where everyone was given there was word of a day party going on there. Turned out the rooftop is where the party was! The high energy crowd, drinks, and upbeat music from the DJ made this an exciting hangout.

Sharese Davis: We had brunch reservations and basically paid $60 to stare at each other and eat cold food. They could hire more staff or something. We paid for bottomless mimosas and didn’t even get that. I ended up buying myself some drinks but all in all this was an extreme waste of money. DO NOT come here for brunch. Go elsewhere, some place that can accommodate you for a decent price atleast. They claim to do everything in order by reservation but that’s not true, we were here since 2 and another table received better service than us and we got here after them. Their time pretty much ran out and they were still Being accommodated. They really need to do better honestly. Waste of money. Actually stay home make your own drinks. Save you money and time.

Union Stage: what do users think?


Mrs. Dino: Small intimate venue with great sound and lineups. Can get pretty crowded but still a fun place to see a show. The VIP area is a little weird, I wouldn't pay extra for it, as it's just a few tables roped off behind General Admisson. I doubt you would be able to see if it was a packed show. Easy to Uber or Lyft to, and is located in a super cute part of the Wharf District. If I lived in DC I would definitely come here often.

Dan Rice: What a great little venue! My kid and I went to see Cybertronic Spree in November. The sound system was perfect for the setting. I didn't feel crowded, the bartenders were excellent. I would definitely go back! Being in the southern outskirts of DC is nice for me because I'm coming in from the south.
Response: glad to hear you had a good time at union stage! - luke

Tricia Alletzhauser: We had a great time here. We saw Niko Moon. It was an excellent show and the bar is a decent venue to watch a show. The bar staff was very nice. Overall, we had a great time.
Response: Thank you!

Dave Nemetz: Great little joint to hear some live music. Easy to get to, just a short walk from the L’Enfant Plaza Metro stop. Saw Will Hoge, and was right up next to the stage. Looking forward to seeing more shows here soon.

Chelsea M: Attended a show at Union Stage this weekend with my child & we had a great time! The venue is very intimate so the band can really feed off the crowd's energy and vice versa. I thought it was cool how to venue is basically under the restaurant. The only thing I thought was weird was the "premier plus seating" was only 4 seats roped off to the side... other than that it was great!

Oooma L.: A most excellent venue if standing (as in NO seating for regular ticket holders) amid a sea of mostly unmasked bipeds on a concrete floor in dark, windowless dungeons excites you. Featured music acts are one or two steps above what is offered at local suburban coffee houses. Meh. Most of the staff were polite.
Response: hi oooma. the floor is wood and the acts are all nationally or internationally touring performers. but yes, most of our concert-goers are bipeds!

Mike Davidson: Cool basement bar for live music right in the Wharf with a decent selection of liquor, rotating drafts, and bottles. Small bar food menu and limited seating. I'd recommend parking a few blocks away and walking if it's the weekend.

Maria Cecilia Pinto de Moura: The Union Stage space is very good, but the 80s dance party on June 25 with DJ Dave Paul was disappointing for 2 reasons. First, too many of the songs were covers of the originals. Second, there was a very dominant drum machine added to all the songs. The songs completely lost their character and were blended together into a dull mass-produced soup. The message that came across was that after all the music from that decade couldn't have been that good, if we have to 'improve' it to motivate people to dance.
Response: hi maria. sorry you didn't enjoy the show. email me at luke@unionstage.com and we can take care of you. - luke

Ann Brennan: Great venue for music. Very intimate without being too crowded. Clean. Easy to park. Good beer selection and attentive staff.
Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed your time!

natalie !: Be cautious buying tickets from this venue! I was going to see a show on Jan 25 and it was postponed. The band I was going to see posted about their new tour dates and they were no longer going to perform at union stage and instead at a venue called DC9. I never received a refund from union stage, despite their website states you will receive a refund if a show is canceled. There is my $50 down the drain. I emailed them twice and no response. Very unfortunate that they're deciding to take advantage of their customers and ignoring them. I've been to this venue before and enjoyed my time there. But now, I am going to stay away and don't want to support this venue. Edit: I emailed Luke a week ago and still have yet to receive a response. Disappointed and definitely won't be supporting this venue or any of their affiliate venues..
Response: Go ahead and email us at luke@unionstage.com and we’ll take care of it.
