CLUB ELEVATE: what do users think?


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.

Soundcheck: what do users think?


Mitchel Vongbandith: Used to enjoy going to this place but I think the new security guys have been pretty rough. Friends had a table and one of them had a lot to drink and decided to sit down (this was at the end of the night and the closer after the main act had come on). Security guy started harassing my friend (who was part of the table mind you) for him to leave. We asked him why he was doing that and he wouldn't give an answer. They can get some great acts to play here, the older staff that has been here are still nice but the newer people that I don't recognize aren't very great and really spoil the experience. Otherwise I think the new lasers and addition of speakers were a great idea.

Giles Peng: I visited this club recently to hear some DJs I hadn’t heard live yet. Overall, it was a fun experience with a friendly crowd and very danceable music. I got there early, but the line to get in starts getting long between an hour or two after the club opens. The crowd was trendy and more than a few club-goers were quite good dancers. I’m sure to visit this club again for the intimate dance floor, nice selection of drinks, and the DJs spinning music that kept the crowd going on a fairly high fidelity sound system.

Katrina Marie: Overall experience was 8/10. DJ was pretty good. Staff was RUDE all over. (Edit): and apparently this is common after reading other’s experiences - especially women. Staff -10 👎🏽 I have worked for other Live Nation venues and have been to other Live Nation venues in other major cities and this one was the worst. It’s sucks how rude employees can be the only negative thing - it takes away from an overall great experience. But cheap tickets and decent show

Rob Garcia: 10/10 hands down. This place rocks and is a venue staple in DC. Headliners come through weekly. Staff are super professional. Lighting and sound are off the charts good.

Jordan S: Came here with two friends. I had a great time, I prefer hip-hop, so maybe I'll come again when its my type of music! Either way, the sound system was excellent, we got a table, but it was a bit crowded at some points. The place was clean, no dirty, stick tables. Only annoying part was the wait at the bar... My goodness! Not sure if more bartenders are needed, or what, but it was just way too long of a wait. Luckily the bathroom lines weren't nearly as long as the bar. We waited outside while getting in for a little too long, but I feel like that's to be expected.

Alice Yoon: One of the security guys outside was so rude and got me confused w another asian girl (ignorant). I asked to stand next to the heaters outside last night for a minute before my uber arrived and he said “no you put yourself in this position so you can freeze.” I was really confused as to what I did but he kept saying I was “banned from echostage(?)” and that i had “snuck into the venue” somehow. Definitely got me mixed up with some other asian girl, and didn’t take my word for it when I told him I had never seen him before in my life. Extremely rude and ruined my night
Response: Hey Alice- If you could please email matt@clubglow.com, we can further discuss this situation.

Anjie: Meh, not worth a $30 cover. Outside staff and bathroom attendant were nice, professional. Bartenders slow and rude. They definitely pick who they want to serve and when. They look right past you as you are standing there and help someone who just walks up. Not sure if they are friends or regulars, but if you want tips or to stay open, you should treat newcomers just as good. Not to mention, with the exception of the staff, and MAYBE 10 guests, nobody was wearing a mask. A socially responsible club would enforce this mandate.

Abby Johnston: Terrible experience, specifically with the outside security- one of the bouncers was incredibly rude to me. The music they were playing inside was just not good. The place was also half empty and overall boring. Not at all worth the 30 minute line and overpriced ticket to get in.

Greg Czechowicz: I am giving 2 stars, but if it wasnt for the vaccine cards fiasco I would give it 5 stars. This was an vaccine card mandated show, but NO ONE asked for our vaccine cards. I even wanted to show but they said its ok, no need. If the goal is to keep people safe, why let everyone in if you say there is a vaccine mandate? Now on to the positives, great sound, but a bit too loud. Definitely need ear plugs. Drinks well priced, security kept an eye out for drunks and fights and did a great job.

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.

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.

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.

Saint Yves: what do users think?


Michael Belvedere: Bouncers wouldn’t know a good time if it hit them in the face. I walked into the bar and they made me throw out my bag of goldfish. Will not be coming back.

Amber Jones: If I could give this place one star I would. They have a promotion going on every week that if you get a ticket on eventbrite before 12. You get in for free. Only to find out if they have a host that doesn’t apply and you have to pay $20 dollars and it’s not included in the fine print. They do not make you aware of that before you get the ticket. They are rude and unwelcoming and unprofessional. DO NOT GO TO THIS CLUB. If you do go be aware that you may have to pay regardless if you have an eventbrite ticket.

Warren B: Didn’t even know this bar existed until Cupid’s Bar Crawl on 2/9/19. Saw that bad reviews about management, still came early in the day, surprised because it was lit, left for other bars participating in the bar crawl. Came back at 9:30 (30 minutes before bar crawl ended) and they tell me they’re closing out. Come on guys!! What did I pay for?! Had a chance to showcase a great bar and blew it. Management should rethink their strategy. Really disappointed. Will be asking for a refund just for this. Do better!!! Ending at 9:30 is a joke for a DuPont circle bar. If your going to operate a bar here understand what level you should perform at first!

Tamara Goldner: Went to this bar for the first time for a bar crawl. Me and my friends were hanging with the owner and some of the staff. One of the staff remembers got too handsy with me so my boyfriend asked him to please stop. Then one of the bouncers proceeded to through him out of the bar and made him spill his drinks all over himself. I’ve never seen such bad costumer service and was appalled at how the staff acted. Awful experience.

Sanai Michelle: The first impression is the LAST impression and I had a very bad experience at this place. One of the managers (bald guy) is very disrespectful, petty, and nonchalant. He didn't care that people were standing in line in the freezing cold for over an hour. Nobody ever even mentioned what the hold up was. He allowed people that he knew to enter the club and left others standing there clueless as to what was going on. Only those who reserved tables were allowed in after some time passed, and once the club "reached capacity" general admission people were told that they had to pay $40 to enter or leave the line. The entire situation was completely unfair. Mind you, there are plenty of other nice bars and clubs in the area. So if that isn't bad business I don't know what is. I would NEVER return to this place.

O-Negative Studios: Rudest most disrespectful staff and they operate like scammers don’t waste your money here, as nice as it looks everything else here is trash from management to bottle service

Angela: Definitely coming back with my friends! We went for happy hour. Walking in, it's super chic and glamorous. Usually food at a bar is not something to highlight but we had at least four rounds of plates because we kept wanting more and was beautifully plated. Service was great too!

Katara Mahdi: On eventbrite it said free before 12. Got in line at 11:55pm. There was like 3 dudes in front of us. They held the line til 12... of course. We saw the dudes get out of line and we asked why? $40 cover... For what? No artist was gonna be there or anything like that. Door staff rude. We paid to get in and it was dry. SO DRY. We left after 1230. Went to park instead. I give two stars for the nice decor in the club only.

Marie Takam: I have never been so annoyed or disappointed in an establishment. It’s so sad I’ve been here several times and have never been inside. The last straw was yesterday. I arrived at 11pm when online it said 10pm and they were not open. Staff has no idea what was going on. I end up going to 18th st lounge come back at 12:30 and they say $40. They would not honor my pass because they had an event that day. The other times as well they would not honor pass, hold up the line and charge $40. Everything is done is done on bad taste for a club that i heard to be so classy. And looking at the other reviews not one comment to positive or negative reviews. Sticking with the park!

AL B Sure: Drinks were way over priced. $11 Coronas just an example. Floor space was small. No method for the bartender. Waited almost 30 minutes just to order 3 drinks only for them to be expensive. I’ve been to other spots in DC and Manhattan with mor space and better pricing. I won’t go back!

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

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.

The Park at 14th: what do users think?


Racquelle White: I have been going to park for near 5 years and I never quite liked it because I used to go when they were more of a club and I never thought I would really pick up and the vibes were a bit off. However, in the last year it has become one of my favorite restaurants to visit in DC! I have gone a few times with my friend for fancy dinners where we dress up And their food is actually top tier here. I've also attended some of their black professional networking events and paties which I enjoyed!

Gabriella WOWITSGOLDIE: Had a blast here !! Food was really good for brunch … it’s like a big plate of food and unlimited mimosas … salmon was so good ! Wings came off the bone, delicious. You pay one fee and spend like 3 hours there. The music was pretty good too, after you drink a few glasses you might even get up and dance. Bathrooms upstairs are very tiny and a little outdated other then that service was very good and food was great would definitely recommend! We will be back!

Tasha Fuller: It was all good, from the drinks, appetizers, entrees, to desserts and service. As you can see we were ready and The Park at 14th did not disappoint. We all agreed that the spinach and artichoke dip was “da bomb” the dip was creamy and full of flavor and the the fresh baked chips were the perfect compliment. We also enjoyed the shrimp and calamari. For dinner we ordered jerk wings for the table and I had the lamb, and I was not ashamed to pick up and clean the bone, it was that good. Everyone ordered the brownie for dessert and then we ordered a bread pudding for everyone to sample. I could have eaten them both and some would say I tried. You must check them out when they reopen in March.

Solana Cox: We came here all the way from Pittsburgh to celebrate our 5 year anniversary weekend. Every occasion and celebration that comes up, I will choose this place every time. The service and the DJ was on point. After a nice fine dining experience the night before, this is exactly what we were looking for the next day. Good vibes, good music, good food and drinks, and an all around fun atmosphere. When we told them it was our anniversary, they went above and beyond for us the entire night we were there. All the staff were so helpful and kept checking in on us even if it wasn’t our actual waiter. Special shout out to Dre which I’m assuming is the manager, that guy was running circles assisting staff. I’m a manager myself and now I feel like I need to step my game up watching that guy work lol. He was on top of everything and made sure we left with a memorable experience. I plan on coming back every time I visit DC. If you’re looking for a night out with good food and drinks, a live DJ playing hip hop/ r & b hits from early to mid 2000s, and all around exceptional service, this place is it. Highly recommend.

Jenn (Jenn): A small group of friends and I had dinner at The Park for my friend’s birthday and it was a good time. It was our first time eating dinner here and the food was presently good. I ordered the baby lamb chops with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My meal would have been really good but the gravy was salty so that ruined my meal. The lamb chops were nicely cooked, tender and juicy. The size is accurate for the name, and they were indeed baby size.

Lani: It was okay. The food / drinks came out fast. The happy hour only had two drinks on the menu and they weren’t strong. It was busy so we didn’t see our servers as much. I feel like the entrees are over priced now. We didn’t get enough to match the $30-40 price tags per entree. The wings werent good anymore, they were soggy. The vibe is definitely different now that it’s a restaurant only, which isn’t a bad thing but it should be noted. I think the quantity of food should match what you’re paying. I liked that I could let any server know my order if I didn’t see my server and they took my requests. But I don’t see myself returning here. The servers energy was that I couldn’t just come for drinks anymore and had to order a meal and not just appetizers. He was pushy & kept asking me what I wanted to eat and I had ordered many drinks and apps at the point, didn’t like that. The party next to us was overwhelmingly loud and we couldn’t hear each other.

Kar Ruiz: Great experience. We went for my friend’s birthday and the service was excellent; food amazing. We just loved it. Planing to come back.

Behanka G.: Food was bomb! Drinks were good. I had the pan seared chicken, a tuxedo, and daily punch. First time here and I had a friend visiting. She enjoyed it as well. The place was lively and well decorated. Parking was hard to find on a friday night but luckily there’s valet for $25.

Dan Richards: Went here for brunch as part of a group conference. They gave us a sampler of different foods and everything was great. From the French Toast to the wings every bite was an experience. The mac & cheese was one of the best that I have had at a restaurant. The eggs were fluffy and the bacon was perfect.

Latasha Perry: We made a reservation on open table the day prior as a recommendation from a friend. At our arrival we were greeted and seated promptly. The staff was friendly, attentive and swift. Our food arrived hot and was so good. The jerk wings amazing and the salmon juicy and flavorful. Mac and cheese was perfect. To note: There is a bar for seating as well. The atmosphere is dark themed and the music was complimentary of a Saturday night out.

The Camelot Showbar Strip Club: what do users think?


Aaron S: Some of my boys are I went in looking for a good time and we got sat with a blonde lady Kayla. She kept bringing us drinks we didn’t ask for and rushing off. It was obvious she padded our tab and got an attitude when we told her to stop. The dancers were nice and we had a good time with them but the server left a bad taste in my mouth. Won’t be coming back.

Lovely Ma: We had a blast here we enjoyed them and they enjoyed us. The host was super nice it’s little In There but it’s still nice my only issue are those extremely small drinks for a million dollars 🙄 forreal guys we gotta do better. We coming back to see Chanel again 😍

Alexandr Lomonowskiy: Watch out for girl named “Bella”!!! She is African American and she is a crazy hassler. She promised me and my friend to go home with us after work and asked to send her $2k. After receiving the money she disappeared and then tried her trick with another table next to us and we could hear it all. Never had anyone rob me like that before. Totally disappointed in service. Our waitress “Cindy” gave us a bill with things we didn’t even order. They try to hassle you left and right there. Don’t trust what they tell you and check your bill before you pay.

Ar Portillo: A shame it's a blatant robbery system the dancer Sasha and the waitress marissa rob you in the face I will definitely not return to this place and recommend anyone not to visit I think there are more honest places in DC the MPire is next door and Archibalds a few blocks away, a little further but there is Good Guys

james carter: This club was way over priced, water was more expensive than the beer. According to waitress, they don’t have happy hour, which was also disappointing. Went there with some friends after work, and it’s now on our do not go list…

Justin Miller: Went here for a bachelor party. It's a small club with one stage. But, it is a fun atmosphere. Girls were beautiful and friendly. Plus, no cover charge. So, that is definitely a plus. We did have an issue with our check. But, nick cleared that up. Will stop back in next time I'm in the area.
Response: Hello Justin Kindly contact me at Nick@camelotshowbar.com regarding your experience at Camelot. Thank you Nick Triantis

Darrell France: The bouncer at the door told us we had to purchase a $250 bottle for a table of five. Since there was 8 of us we had to get two bottles at $500 to get in he said. So we did it. They put us upstairs, the waitress showed a menu to select the bottles, we tipped the dancers well all was good.Right at close she come to our table and said the charge is $896.00. I question her, she said I don’t know what he told you at the door and then she put the bouncer on me, I was insulted, I ask for a Manager and he said give me a moment Sir. This guy called the Cops on me and embarrassed me and they were trying to hurry us out making ZERO attempt resolved because the door guy, the waitress he called into on his radio for the table and the manager were ALL in on the scheme the run on SELECTED PEOPLE. They figure you’re drunk and OVERCHARGE YOUR CARD. And I even questioned the door guy and he LIED and said I don’t know you’re talking about. THE STAFF HUMILIATED ME, OVERCHARGED MY TABLES, THEY ALL LIED, WHO KNOWS HOW MAN OTHER PEOPLE THEY OVERCHARGE STEALING MONEY ON YOUR CREDIT CARD.

Jason DeWitt: Their web site is set up so you can see when a particular dancer will be performing. Do yourself a favor and go in when Elizabeth is performing. She is absolutely divine yet extremely down to earth - she is worth buying a few drinks for and then some.

Kaiser Soze: I highly recommend Nathalia. She is classy, seductive, down to earth, real, sexy, honest. She gonna have you talkin about your past and your future. She’s a counselor. She will guide you through your tribulations. Trust. Natalia is a real one. Bring cash.

iyosiyas HHUH?: Experience was by far average, drinks are expensive and waitresses seem far too rude to be working in a club. I came in with some friends to celebrate a birthday, and after being sat down was greeted by a lady sitting down talking to another gentleman(which is not a problem). The problem came when we tried to order more drinks, or get her attention for anything we needed. she was standofish, rude, and looked completely annoyed for anything we needed of her. The show girls were nice and did their jobs fantastically, drinks are expensive(as expected), and ambiance is nice. The waitress just ruined the whole experience. how can you be the ugliest woman in the building and be the rudest at the sametime?
Response: Iyosiyas, we're so glad that you enjoyed the our dancers and the ambiance of the club while celebrating your birthday with us! It is our goal to provide you with first rate service, in addition to the entertainment. Would you be so kind as to email our GM, Nick Triantis, at nick@camelotshowbar.com with the date and time of your visit, along with where you were seated? Even better if you can include a copy of your receipt, but no worries if you can't. Thank you! - The Camelot Showbar

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

Archibald's Gentlemen's Club: what do users think?


Megaforce Omar: Went here with a group of 4, two who I brought from a concert that we all attended that night. Reya Sunshine was doing a after party here that Saturday after the Exxxotica Expo was in town. The door person was welcoming, might have been the manager. The asian waitress who serve my table lost my ID and debit card, along with the other guy in my group, THAT'S (4) LOST CARDS or stolen? We found out at the end, when everyone was leaving, who she didnt come back to let us know at the table. It could've been the crazy Caucasian dancer who was making a scene there when I was there. The next day, I told Reya about what happened, I won't be back here cause it was very shady of them to do that, I did spent a good amount of money there too. I had to do a police report about the lost cards.

Katze Love: It’s highly mediocre. The main floor is very plain with not much going on. Staff aren’t too friendly but that’s to be expected. Expect to pay a high cover and for overpriced drinks. Maybe if you’re next door, check it out, but definitely not worth making a trip to this place.

John Van King: I visited this club with friends on a Tuesday night, 09:30pm, and there were already some other guests. Admission was $ 10 without a drink. A beer cost $ 11. The club is a bit smaller and not as highly modern as others, but still fine. The room is elongated with a smaller stage centered on the wall. As a result, there are seats with better and less good visibility. Sitting right at the stage or across gives you a very good view of the performances of the dancers and you can also tip them very comfortably. Due to lack of space, there are no poles on the stage, but a suspended ring in which the ladies can present themselves artistically. I found that a really nice and a special alternative. The dancers completely undressed in their performances and did not shy away from showing their bodies. Compared to the club from the previous evening, the women were a little younger and I also liked them more - but that's a matter of taste and probably depends on the evening. Unfortunately, the ladies were a bit pushy looking for more tips or a drink or while selling a private dance. Overall, we had a nice evening in this club. Private dances started at $ 150 for a duration of 3 songs. Way more expensive than in other compareable cities/countries. In the other club they at least had a nice $ 40 offer for a personal (not private) dance.

Dianne Carter: I never expected to have such a great time here! We went in because it was close to our hotel and we wanted an after dinner drink.The girls were so beautiful, strong, and talented! I highly recommend this club!
Response: THANK YOU DIANNE. We all work hard in hopes of getting reviews such as yours.

Darby Mcdermott: went here once and the dancers seemed so strung out that it made me feel genuinely sad for them. I ended up tipping only out of pity. The bartenders seemed sober but were really rude. The owners and bouncers give off shady vibes. Everything is way overpriced. I walked in ready to have fun, walked out depressed.

Logan Koprovic: Decent drinks but terrible service. Sat at a table and was served twice: once when I sat and once when I hunted down our server for our check. Tried to order at the bar but ran off. Apparently you’re supposed to just sit at your table for hours sipping your empty drink.

N Vaaj: Mehh.. drinks were a bit overpriced... $11 for a bottle of Corona; to be expected regarding the location in the City. The girls were, without a doubt, beautiful! Would say about 80% of entertainers were above average. Kinda small for the venue. Repeatable: Maybe?? Have to go during weekend to give full answer. I went on a Wednesday. Verdict: Would say the business establishment is respectable. Worth a try! I only went to visit an old friend!

Dee Dee: I’m a woman and I attended this establishment as a patron. I paid an entrance fee AND for refreshments inside. Security was nice at the door. Within 10 minutes of my arrival I was asked to pay (I even tipped the bar) which I thought was strange because all I had was a water bottle. security approached me asking me to speak outside. I agreed. The guard told me that a dancer was uncomfortable because another patron spoke to me when she’d walked away. I am A LESBIAN so there’s the real joke in the situation. I was wearing full stockings and a fully professional Elie Tahari dress. There is no way a basically naked woman was threatened by my presence when he wasn’t even sober enough to complete a sentence from what I saw. Nevermind that I was spending money in this establishment. I immediately demanded a refund for being basically dismissed after paying to enter . I was faced with a audacious rebuttal before management agreed so I was able to receive my entrance fee and tip back. Long story short if the dancers are going to be insecure they need to do that on their own time off the clock. I was referred to it and after my experience I would NOT recommend this to anyone. Camelot offers the same services where I have spent time and TIPPED the bar AND girls without a single problem. Visit them instead.

Jason Tipp: Once I walked in there was a hot girl working the door I think she’s asian and black (she was the hottest in the club I’d say) there’s a few good looking girls at the bar. The dancers are ok. There’s no pole, it’s more of a relaxing environment. If you’re looking to relax and have a conversation this is a place for it. Also the dancers ask for tip after their sessions which is acceptable.

A m: Decent enough place but nothing special. Pros: The women were fun and good looking. Opposed to poles they had rings and long curtain ropes which was cool and original. They have really fun themed nights including a Kink night and special guest. We got to see Tiny Texie a 3' stripper who had a really fun show (hilight of the night). A good ammount of legit looking security made it seem like everyone including the girls were safe and taken care of. The DJ was great. Cons: The AC constantly leaked not only on tables but also on the stage. There were a few times the women had to catch themselves so they wouldnt trip and get hurt because of it. Drinks were over priced. A lot of girls seemed to have left by 12am even though they are open till 4. I went with my significant other and wanted to get a couples lap dance. She showed us upstairs just to be told that it wasnt allowed. They wanted us to pay seperately or get full bottle service and we weren't allowed to go into the room togeather. We have went to many clubs and this is the first place to EVER refuse us. We are use to paying extra for couples dances but never out right refused. We spent well over $200 just in drinks for us and a few of the girls not including the extra money we spent tipping the dancers, so clearly we were willing to spend the money. It was a huge disappointment.

9:30 Club: what do users think?


Brian Copes: I believe it was my second time at this club and it was a great time! Context - I went to a pride/DJ/ drag show event, but I believe it’s a concert venue in the DC area. Security - I believe they have a metal detector and they check your bags so be prepared and consider that from a time management standpoint. Venue- it’s huge with multiple levels including bars, bathrooms and places to stand/dance/watch. I heard there’s a lower level, but last night I was just on the balcony and main floor near the stage. Vibe - loved the mood and energy. It was packed around 11PM EST even though it started at 10PM. There’s was free water, disco ball, alcohol, lights, go-go dancers and people in the mood to have a fun night. Overall, I would recommend this place for a night out.

Ian Pitts: Cozy venue with multiple bars and some food options. Parking is only a block or two away and there are options for food right nearby within walking distance. The ticket checking process was smooth and they even checked a camera that was deemed "professional" for free during the show.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: First time I went to the 930 Club was the one on F Street in 1990. I was a senior in high school and went to see the Ocean Blue perform. They encored with the Smiths' "There is a Light that Never Goes Out" that night. The experience was incredible and indelible. The energy in that small crowded space embodied everything about live music that I enjoyed and was such a milestone for me in my young musical journey. When they moved to their current location a few years later, I was dubious about how it would be. But it didn't disappoint. I saw countless shows there from Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Morphine, and so many more. It somehow had the same intimate energy even in such a larger space. Now back after 2 decades in California, I have come to appreciate it even more. Recently saw Caribou and the Midnight and both shows were epic. Great sound, and always can get a good angle on the stage. Look forward to enjoying many more shows here in the years to come.

Anna S: I just took my daughter and her friends to this venue for the first time for an all ages show last night. I am so glad that I did! She and her high school friends had a great time! My friend and I had a nice view from the balcony bar and were able to enjoy ourselves and have our eyes on the girls at all times. We called the club earlier in the evening and the woman who answered the phone gave us great instructions on where to park as well! They take the mask and vaccinations proof seriously as well, which made me feel more comfortable about safety. Bathrooms were clean at the beginning and f the night. Overall, for a place to get 4 decades of people all enjoying the same music and scene, the 9:30 Club did a great job.

Michelle: What an awesome venue! I recently saw one of my favorite bands here and was blown away! The sound in this club is amazing! You can feel every beat and note. Also, great staff! Keeping it safe, but fun. 👍🏻👍🏻

Tori Barker: We barely waited in line and we showed up 15 minutes before the show began which in my opinion was fantastic. When I say barely waited I mean the staff greeted us immediately, looked at our vax cards and IDs and because my boyfriend had lost his mask we had to wait 1 minute so the staff could grab us one. The staff were so kind and even though it was super cold they had such a great attitude and welcoming vibe. So thankful for everything at the venue. The people inside were also great and of course the Bartender, fantastic. I could not ask for more from this venue. The set up inside is stunning and our show was amazing! I am from NC but came up to D.C. to see Misterwives and I am so glad it did. A night to remember from start to finish, thank you 9:30 for all you do to keep entertainment alive during these times.

Kevin Fiol: Great venue! Sound was awesome. Stage allows for great views etc. However... I was charged $2 for a 6oz cup of water. They do not sell bottled water (or intentionally sold me a TINY water) There's no place to smoke or vape once you enter the venue so you have to go outside and then go through the entire line again.

Nathan Faneuf: Amazing venue, been here twice so far. Would definitely see a show here. Bring ear plugs, very loud, but good sound. Drinks are expensive, 9 dollars for a shot of Jack Daniels. Friendly staff.

Osaurus G: This is a pretty good venue. Love all the bars and the openness of the floor. The balcony area offers some great views of bands (Bob Mould for me)

Aida mary: Absolutely fantastic venue for a live show! I watched Saint Paul and the Broken Bones plus Thee Sacred Souls play here. The energy was lit! Great location. Great customer service! Would definitely go again. Highly recommend

Black Cat: what do users think?


Nick Pascale: performed there with my band, The Missing Peace (check us out) and the staff was extremely nice to us and treated us with utmost respect despite opening for a huge artist. Also music venues normally carry a stigma of being stingy with their alcohol in their drinks but Black Cat served great tasting, well mixed drinks - best venue i’ve experienced in the DMV area!

Tom Burke: I've been to this club a few times over the past 15 or so years. Always liked it. It's a long haul for me (~1.5 hr drive), so I don't go often.

Tom Mole: Covid testing requirements were listed clearly and visibly written on the venue's website. The venue was pretty clean and the restrooms were surprisingly kept up which is rare.. The front desk/counter lady was extremely polite and nice. I will definitely return for another awesome musical performance! DC music shows! :)

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Saw Boy Harsher here on April 10th (2022) and it was the first time seeing this duo. Dark, early new wave-inspired songs, very synth-heavy with pounding minimal beats made for a great show at this raw venue. It was my first time back here in about 20 years, still has a great vibe if not the best acoustics. If they had better sound here and some better vantage points for the folks that aren't 6 feet tall, I'd definitely give it 5 stars.

Ramiro Pena: My past two experiences have been dreadful. They pack the place so full of people it is really concerning. I straight up got panic attacks from just how many people are packed in post pandemic. God bless them but I guess it’s just not for me anymore. It’s so hard to ascertain when the events held here arent packed with a huge huge group of people because besides that I’m sure there are worthwhile acts to watch. I remember one group that did a really cool interpretive dance I’m sorry for the low score but thats me and I think I’m going to add some keywords so that a certain audience can understand. If you have autism or anxiety this might not be the most accesible place for you. The last two times I have been here getting a drink or even approaching the bar has been impossible. The place was so packed inevitability people were rubbing up against me CONSTANTLY. Personally I can’t stand that. This place has pinball which is nice but last time the one machine had a flipper broken. I wish I could enjoy being inside this place but theres no where to sit most of the time I feel awkward walking in and just standing around, I can’t feel comfortable dancing because theres no room to move without brushing up against someone. I just can’t stand that. This is a personal problem but if you have sensory issues like that consider this an advisement

kevin jenkins: Had a great time seeing Flobots. Bartenders are great. Tip them. Well.

JW Francis: I played here on 4/19 and had a wonderful experience! Very cool room with checkered floor. Very kind people behind the bar and working production. Two thumbs wayyyy up!

Jeffrey Hearn (he / him): Limited but welcome seating for a big guy who can't stand for 3 hours at a stretch

Robert Cardoni: Mid size music venue hosting indie and punk acts. Space is long and narrow - so sight lines and sound can be off near the back but it’s still a great space. They recently downsized from 2 levels to one. Kind of sad but at least they weren’t forced out of the neighborhood due to gentrification. Bring cash. No credit cards accepted They no longer have food :(

Marissa Frank: Love going to shows at the black cat. The bar upstairs is no longer cash only, but they will not keep tabs. Drink prices are fine. The bathrooms need some help but it's a small fun venue, it's fine.

Sax Restaurant & Lounge: what do users think?


Tanium T: It's a nice venue. However once you get past the velvet and gold everywhere there are a lot of repairs needed including many of the candelabras that are broken and bent. The performances were stunning and I would definitely go back. Their food was also great! It's worth a visit.

Diana Feldmaier: SIR Sundays are BACK!! It is the best brunch I’ve been to. The buffet style food was delicious, lots of fun, great show, and unlimited mimosas! Bring all your girlfriends, you’ll have a blast!

Alexander Cárdenas: The experience was really good. I enjoyed the night with my friends, good drinks and the music was perfect. However, there was not enough air conditioning and very hot. Other that that good.

Rod S: I love the venue. The food is not good. I ordered the steak w fries and the steak was tougher than beef jerky. It was like a retreaded tire slathered with sauce. My date ordered the salmon which was delicious But it came out later and the staff was rushing us to finish our food in preparation for the night crowd so we could not enjoy or finish it. I wish we didn't stay for after hour drinks as the place just gets raunchy. I really wanted to like this place as it appears as a classy club. I was mistaken.

B Rene: I have to give Sax 4/5 stars because of my experience. I took my mother here for her birthday about a week ago for the dinner and show. The atmosphere is REALLY intimate/dramatic. Quick bite: they give you some type of flavor popcorn. Unfortunately, the server came around and took the bowl while we still has popcorn in it and didn’t even ask us if we were done or if we wanted more. I just thought that might’ve been a nice courtesy. Appetizer: we ordered the cocktail shrimp (there were four fairly large shrimp. They were seasoned and cooked perfectly! My mom had their blackberry mesculin salad which was really good as well. Neither of us really cared for the vinaigrette that comes with it (too vinegar-y), but their ranch (which I believe is housemade) was really great! Drinks:my mom had what was originally served as a house shooter (They practically give these away) district was pretty refreshing, cool, and crisp. It’s pink, and forgive me I cannot remember the name of it. I had the art of the tease, Which is either whiskey or bourbon-based, but really tasty! Comes with some type of sugar crystals on a stick that’s a little bit longer and thicker than toothpick. Would definitely order again. Dinner: I tried the lamb... not so great. But traded for the Oscar NY strip....BOMB. It came with asparagus beets in the crabmeat. I don’t even know how to explain the flavor in the party in my mouth! But definitely a must try if you plan to visit. It definitely made up for any concern I had about the lamb. My mom had the Chimichurri steak frites. They came up very tender and juicy. Not quite as flavorful as the New York strip, but still really good. For sides (yes, they are à le carte) we had the mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. Both really good! Those are probably some the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had in my life! Not sure if that’s a thing, but for me that night it was. Only issue that I had with that was they don’t seem to have enough sides. I took pictures of the menu, so you’ll see what I mean. I just feel like maybe a little more variety would have been more intriguing. Dessert:didn’t really look too appetizing. Again, not enough menu options, and the few items that were there didn’t really spark my interest. Because it was my moms birthday, they did bring out cheesecake with a candle and two glasses of champagne. Not bad. Definitely nice that they were thoughtful enough to bring her something and celebrate with her. The cheesecake that they brought out was really good… Unfortunately I don’t remember seeing that (non dulce de leche) on the menu. Entertainment: They have a different set every 40 or 45 minutes after the hour. Definitely not raunchy or anything classless, But I would not recommend this place for kids under 16 maybe even 18. As this was my first time, I wasn’t really aware that the show takes place kind of at the eye level of the people sitting upstairs, and we ended up sitting downstairs. Still a great deal because the entertainment was also on the floor, but I feel like there were parts of the show that we missed when they were doing floor work in the skybox. We would have been able to see that better if we were on the second floor. Now we know for next time though. Last tidbit: No matter the size of your party or the time of day or the day of the week that you come in, they will be adding 22% gratuity to your bill automatically. Overall, my first Sax experience was great. Definitely book a reservation. They do have a two hour maximum time limit that they claim that they strictly enforce. I took plenty of photos for you guys...enjoy and pay a visit

Lee Davis: Amazing place, amazing food, spectacular show. Shout out to the wait staff, and performers. Seldom do you go somewhere that matches how wonderful you feel inside after getting dressed up, smelling good, and feeling good. You will be on "Baller status" when you attend Sax and won't mind "popping bottles" for one moment, as the match you with the atmosphere, professionalism, and grandeur spirit of the whole experience!

Daisy de Santiago: The staff at SAX needs to learn the definition of hospitality. Better yet, they need to go back to hospitality school. We used to go to SAX several years ago until their shows became tasteless and raunchy. Then, we recently heard they rebranded their image as a legit supper club, so we decided to try them again. When we arrived, the place only had a few diners and the bar area that they call a “fast bar” but had no bartender in sight. So, we sat down at one of the tables to wait for a bartender to show up and watch the show that started. A service staff (if you can even call her that) walked up to us ask asked if we had a reservation. We said, we didn’t, but that we wanted to grab a drink. She immediately dismissed us and said we cannot sit in that area because the party who reserved it was about to arrive any minute now. Well, as evidenced by my photos below, it had been over an hour and no one had occupied the area where we were sitting. The bar downstairs was never staffed and we were told we needed to go to the upstairs bar to be served drinks. The bartender was the only hospitable person in that entire establishment. Also, when we moved to the other side of the restaurant, this time with our drinks in hand, we were approached yet again by someone who looked like he could be the manager. Rather than offer us a seating where we could enjoy our drinks, he simply told us that we cannot sit at that particular table. This place was a waste of visit. They were rude and dismissive. They ought to take a page out of Stephen Starr’s book when it comes to excellence in service and talent in the restaurant industry. Which, by the way, was where we headed after our time at this wannabe, overpriced, superficial supper club.

Desirea Conner: Sax is always a great time ! I went with my best friend for a pride event and we had so much fun !

Bryan Jordan: Awesome decor and entertainment. Easily spend $200 between two people, so bring your $$$ but the drinks and food were executed very well. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great place for a date night, birthday party, or special event. We will be returning again for sure, well worth the trip into DC.

Dani Pass: Never go here. The staff is so aggressive. As a woman I felt so unsafe. I saw their bouncer grab people by the neck and aggressively take people out in an unacceptable way. This person cannot be working there. Brendon, the one working at the door was completely unhelpful and ignorant about this serious situation.

Echostage: what do users think?


Brian Copes: First time checking out this music venue space in DC. I loved the big space for DC standards. Multiple levels with plenty of bathrooms and attendants working the bathrooms too. Went to DC capital pride event and it was nice. Overall, plenty of staff to ensure your safety and good lighting along with DJs. It’s a great place to have a club night in the area.

Lamar Kelliehan: The Griselda concert was live!!!!! Echostage is not huge, so for the price I paid I was way closer than I feel like I should've been. The pics I posted were right before Griselda came out we worked out way way closer to the front. Had a blast going back very soon. Also no violence after the show so that was cool too.

Stefan Kowalewski: Great venue!! I was very impressed by the staff and the cleanliness of Echostage! The staff is very well organized and helpful. The venue is kept clean and well laid out. There's no obstructed view from the main floor, which is awesome! The merch counter is in the corner, out of the way. Restrooms are either side of the building. There is a long bar on one side of the venue. They do have a coat check which is very nice - $5 pet item. I look forward to attending more events at Echostage!

Gavin Chen: Spectacular venue for electronic music. Strict security (goes through wallets). Free water if you walk up to the security near the stages. A lot of bathroom space available. Great audio quality and open space for dancing.

Nik Lathia: I love Echostage! The layout is ideal for concerts and there's easy access to the bar areas for drinks or water. The bathrooms are easily accessible and have plenty of stalls to accommodate large groups. Really well designed venue and the lights and sounds were awesome!

Charlie Butchko: It was awesome! I got to see DJ Diesel (Shaq) perform life. The bathrooms are very clean, with attendants there to soap your hands and hand you paper towels. As well as that, was close to the front during the performance and there was staff handing water bottles out to the crowd. I got a few drinks at the bar (tequila sunrise and 2 shots of vodka,) each were $10. By the end of the show it got pretty crowded, so if you’re claustrophobic make sure to mentally prepare yourself, or stay further away from the stage. All else aside, for sure gather a group of buddies and find a show you like to check out echostage!

Millennial Max: I've lost count of the times I been here! First time I crowd surfed 😂 and I'm a big boy.. Just saw Excision and it was SURREAL, would definitely recommend Just make sure you're good with transportation!

Brian Keith: Great time. The staff were really professional and caring. I liked seeing how they were treating everyone. Make me feel welcome. I would definitely go back.

So Maryn: The dress code here for DJ events seem to gravitate toward “less is more” or think “beach attire”. Pants optional in the sense that bikini bottoms are acceptable as minimum bottom half. Shirt optional for some men. Beware of “bikini trains” moving quickly through a crowd. Noticed an innocent couple who got divided instantly by a train of arrogant bikini wearing club goers. If you don’t pay attention such bikini trains can step on your foot as they stampede you by. Forgot to bring my glow sticks but it was nice to see some colorful glow shoes and even glow fingertips. First level has an open wide space and second level has table service. Restrooms are easy to find and each stall has a note to remind those that only one person per stall is allowed. Once you get in past thorough security it’s not easy to get out as although exit signs are marked, where to actually exit from a lane perspective is hard to find. Parking is challenging near the venue and expect to pay $40-60 right next door. Echostage I thought you were a top notch global venue but you fell short when it comes to servicing your global clientele. An Asian bartender refused to serve us drinks at the bar even when we were standing right in front of her with no one else around. She did however serve others who approached after us asking them what they want. She seemed to be racially profiling my friend who was wearing a religious head covering. We found another bartender who was much more friendlier and we still had fun.

Aaron Shenk: This was my first time at this venue, and I was so so impressed. We saw Chelsea Cutler, and the venue and staff were so great. For starters, there were so many staff on hand to answer any questions and there was plenty of security to keep everyone feeling safe. For the actual experience, the sound system was phenomenal, the security guards passed out water bottles to the crowed between performances (!!!) and just went above and beyond the entire time. I will definitely plan on returning to this venue!

Quadrant Bar & Lounge: what do users think?


Daisy Sun: We visited this establishment to celebrate a graduation. The wait staff was pleasant. The food was fresh and eye-pleasing, however a little light on flavor. The drink menu was decent, and overall it was a fine dining experience. Don't forget to bring your wallet! Pricing definitely consistent with the Ritz-Carlton brand.

Saminda Wijegunawardena: Perfect balance of elegance and casual, always enjoy the ambiance of the bars at the Ritz. The smokey old fashioned is a must try, albeit a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but it's all about the presentation. Great place to grab a drink with the grown-ups while the kids play across the street at Castas.

Konstantin: Visited this place for breakfast while staying at Ritz Carlton hotel. Well, it is expensive but the food is good, atmosphere is very cozy and place itself is amazing. They do have buffet breakfast on Saturday and Sundays. Monday to Friday is a la carte

Carlina Smith: My husband and I stopped in for a couple of drinks during an alumni event. The service was superb and the drinks were stellar. No surprise, they are located in the Ritz. We'll definitely be back.

D J: Entrees are good, ambience is very nice. Appetizer for butternut squash was okay; warm, consistency good but bland flavor. Had an old fashioned for drink: Not well mixed but you do get the $12 worth of alcohol...salmon and chicken entrees we're really good just ask for more sauces

Russ Dean: The ambiance and service at Quadrant was worthy of the Ritz Carlton name. The cocktails were unique and delicious. We were fortunate enough to order the lamb chops as a whim and they were beautifully executed with both a mint and smoky sauce. Some of the best we've had. We stopped here before a dinner reservation and the service was very fast. Didn't intend to order food here, but glad we did and recommend you do too.

DJY30: Very comfortable place. I really enjoyed the relaxed but upscale setting. Live jazz on Saturdays, all the other days they play jazz, I guess from Spotify/radio. Still nice and relaxing. Cocktails are very strong and food is very delicious. I recommend to get a reservation ahead of time; it can be crowded in the bar area (small bar) if you dont come at an early time (aka 8pm/2000). Highly recommend.

Joe Joemer: Always appreciate the atmosphere of the Ritz's bars, which strikes the perfect blend between formal and informal. Although a little too sweet for my tastes, the smokey old fashioned is a must try. However, it's all about the presentation.

Shaun “Shaun386” Jafarzadeh: Had dinner here after a long drive to DC. Food was good service was both friendly and knowledgeable. Bar staff was helpful with recommendations and knew the local bar scene well.

Ahmed Hameed: My gf and I were at this place, the drink cup broke and cut my girlfriend’s hand. They fixed this incident. 5 minutes Later the server brought the check and asked me to pay and leave because they were slow !! It was such a big lie … the place was full of customers and he had a big attitude when he seen lil salad dropped on the floor. I was extremely disappointed and treated racistly based on how I dressed First time and last time at this place.

The Rooftop at The Ven at Embassy Row: what do users think?


farida popal: I was there on Saturday the 25th. We wanted to go to the rooftop bar. As soon we were at main entrance, the door man greeted us and guide us. When we went to the bar the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were a bet pricey and bar food was great! I’ll defiantly go again.

chrisy edme: The stay was wonderful! The staff at the front desk are amazing ! Specially Lyle at the front desk, he was just a sweetheart to us. We booked our stay prior to them implementing the daily amenity fee. He waived it off of our stay and informed us that he will be more than happy to still provide the perks ! We received some sent sachet of jasmine and lavender which were amazing :) In addition to that he provided us with late check out because our flight was later in the afternoon. He also gave us some great tips of how to get around since it was our first time in DC. Also my room was provided with daily housekeeping and my housekeeper was just a sweetheart too but forgot her name unfortunately. My only Con was the bathroom size, as it was super small and there was no ventilation.

Kimberly “ ” Watson: Excellent! Love the space! The art exhibit in the hotel was wonderful!

D Nguyễn: This bar on the top of the hotel with a pool has a nice view of the city. Not that DC has much of a skyline. The pool is nice to relax after a day of exploring the museums. We went during the day for a couple drinks during Pride. We also came back in the evening before dinner for pre-drinks. It wasn't crowded. A couple people in the pool. The bar as a selection of food and cocktails. The bar service was friendly. Drinks are about what I expect from a hotel roof bar.

Don Robinson: The bartender said it was a "soft opening" for the season. The drinks were very limited. No regular Red Bull (but lots of flavors of Red Bull), no Coke- only Pepsi, and not diet, and many other limitations. He gave us a free drink because he started to make the Jack and diet Pepsi but couldn't finish when he realized no diet Pepsi. The service was very good, and presumably they will have more options when they "really" open. The rooftop area was pretty basic, as I expected from the reviews, but the views of the city were nice. You could hear a little of the street music from Dupoint occasionally. This is not a destination, but was a great hour stopover between dinner and our Improv comedy show.

Neil Osment: Our review is split between the cocktail bar and the rooftop bar.....because the rooftop is actually closed for the season!! Not very helpful that this fact isn't advertised on Google or TripAdvisor by the hotel. However, the cocktail bar is very good, and Jorge (The Guru from Peru!!) is excellent. Friday evening (10/20/17 USA not GMT!) in the main bar was lively, vibrant and a great place to be 😊

jo n: Visited on a Saturday late afternoon. When the bartender was asked about happy hour he claimed there wasn't one. Although the sign at the hotel lobby clearly stated there was one from 4-7pm. Based on quality, the drinks are super overpriced. The rooftop itself is small, an okay view. Don't waste your time visiting.

Reuben Wauyo: This is a beautiful venue and would seem to be all great but terrible customer service. Called for a reservation and information on restaurant and was referred to main line. To which someone picked up after I waited on hold, heard me then hung up. This is the most disrespectful and frustrating thing I can think of when trying to get things set for events. Calling back no one picks up and I have now been calling main line for 30 minutes to be assisted and again no one to answers. You would have to be crazy to work with these guys on anything important for you will receive absolutely no clarification or answers on any questions you have. I was very surprised to even see positive reviews at all. I really hope it’s an isolated event, but if I can help anyone else not deal with my issue I’ll be glad to steer you away and onto another location. I will update with location and name after my reservation is set with our new venue. Also to be noted, not even the central main line can reach these guys and are unwilling to even try. I believe we’ve definitely dodged a bullet.

Walter Hunt: Friendly staff , great location, very accommodating

Ariel Abramson: Nice view and plenty of seats, but they close early and there isn't much of a drink selection. My beer selection tapped out the keg but the nice bar server gave it to me at no charge.

The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Hampus Engstroem: Don't forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking any resort. This site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This resort is one of the highest rated in this area. I've been coming here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure will love it I'm sure! Fantastic staff. Everything was top-notch, clean, and met our expectations. Our supposed room “upgrade” wasn’t really any upgrade, but nonetheless it was a good room. Breakfast was also great. About a five minute walk from the nearest Metro station which made it nice to get around. A longer walk, but we walked all the way down to the National Mall in about 40 minutes.

Mother Tucker: Location is good. Easy to locate. Front desk staff was rude and condescending during every interaction. Room was nice but nothing exciting. The doormen and the staff on our floor cleaning were all exceptionally pleasant. They are what earned the three stars. Also, if you want eye candy, stay at the same time as dignitaries so the place will be full of secret service. I felt very safe.

Logan Deyo: Fantastic staff. Everything was top-notch, clean, and met our expectations. Our supposed room “upgrade” wasn’t really any upgrade, but nonetheless it was a good room. Breakfast was also great. About a five minute walk from the nearest Metro station which made it nice to get around. A longer walk, but we walked all the way down to the National Mall in about 40 minutes.

Katze Love: I've stayed here twice, only for a day or two each time. The lobby is beautiful and it's a cool location. Ritz is a strong brand, but since Covid it seems to have lost a little value. The club lounge has been closed for some time and the rooms could use an update. There are plenty of high-end hotel options around DC so for the price you pay here, you could also explore the St Regis or Four Seasons. Still a nice destination and good central location.

David Berman: The Ritz Carlton in Washington DC is one of the best hotels I have ever been to! The people who work there are so nice and welcoming. It is a hard place to not love. I personally loved my room. My room came with 2 bathrooms, A enclosed bedroom, and a bar area along with a dinner area. It was the height of luxury. The restaurant there was called the Quadrant. They had some of the best service I have ever had at a hotel restaurant. The food came in huge portions and looked spectacular. Overall, I truly enjoyed my experience there and I know that if any of you guys go there you will too! David Berman Public Space Rating Co. 2021-2022 Chief Rating Officer

Tammy Trungadi: My first time at the Ritz Carlton! It was so beautiful and my stay was fabulous! Maggie, a member from the staff, was so kind to me. She personally brought me carafe of coffee to my room! I felt like a princess! Room was spacious, beautiful and everything you possibly could need for a restful and relaxing stay!

Candy Be: Stayed for 4 nights. Mo at the Concierge desk and John at the restaurant coordinated cocktails one night and dinner another night for our large group. Mirna with room service was so friendly. Overall a pleasant stay.

onthegoboomer: We had a great stay here! The staff throughout the hotel were excellent at all times. We booked a room in the club lounge floor for access to the lounge which serves 5 times per day. We were told that this hotel did not automatically grant access to the club level just because you have that status from being a Marriott member and do receive at other Marriott properties. Here you have to pay. I am not sure if we would have received a complimentary upgrade to the club level but will check that out the next time. The club lounge was amazing and the staff could not do enough to ensure our comfort and happiness at all times. Fatiah, Nayana, and Beri were AMAZING and made our times in the lounge so enjoyable. They have breakfast, lunch, snacks, evening hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. Complimentary alcoholic beverages in addition to water juice and coffee/tea. The room was comfortable and the bed was great. The shower/bathroom is dated and the shower is small and the power of the water was a little overwhelming but we had a great visit and would stay here again and again.

Tyler Harris: Rooms were nice as well as the hotel staff. The whole ambience of the building was extremely pleasant especially the christmas decor. The food was just amazing. I got the hanger steak which was hands done the best flavored steak I've hand in my life. The only thing I didn't like was the admission fee for going to the pool which is just absurd seeing as how expensive the hotel is already.
