Trade: what do users think?


Hamilton Jimenez Vasquez: Great bar with a patio, good drinks but the place could use a makeover.

M: Possibly the best gay bar in DC. Unpretentious, very social, down to earth. It is much easier to meet guys here, everyone seems to enjoy the music and friendlier unlike the other gay bars around it. Lighting is perfect. It's not too bright to the point that makes you too self conscious. DJs play mainstream tunes and remixes and of course gays like that. Drinks are better compared to the other bar that I refuse to mention. Bartenders are also quite nice.

Day Graham: Overall good place to be and nice decent music, some people are a little touchy but it’s not that big of a deal. The only negative experience I had (not personally) but my friend gave the bartender her card to pay for 2 drinks and 2 shots. One was $35 and I believe the shots where $8. The bartender decided to give himself a tip out her card without her authorization and gave himself a $52 tip. Lucky my friend was able to call her bank and dispute the charge. If you go to this bar do NOT USE CARD! Cause the bartender will over charge your card purposely.

Thomas J R: Nice little Gay Bar in DC mixed local crowd with some visitors too. Quite small so gets crowded. Staff were friendly and drinks reasonably priced.

Daniel L: Great atmosphere, fantastic staff and fabulous clientele. I’ve visited a handful of times and always had a great time. Would 100% recommend stopping by for a drink. 🍺 🍹

Nicholas Miles: one of my favorite DC bars!

N: It was alright. We went on a chilly sat evening in march. It was moderately crowded with lively ppl. Drinks are avg and moderately priced. Everything was just about ok.

Richard: They are doing an excellent job with Covid guidelines. Fair prices, nice service. Convenient location. You need to make a reservation. Cool ambiance. I recommend this place. Drinks are strong.

brian g: Saturday night scene consistently very good: music, drinks, vibe, crowd. Music a bit offbeat (in a good way) -- a mix of old and new. Well done, Trade-DC.

Andrew Richardson: If you're extremely basic and your entire personality is "urban queer," Trade is for you.

Green Lantern: what do users think?


Admin 001: First time out in DC and this random find on a Thursday had be stripped and dancing in a room full of shirtless folk. No cover was a win and the bartenders upstairs pumped out inexpensive drinks in record time. Everyone was friendly.

Ashley Nichols: Went in around 5:45 on a Tuesday to grab a drink. Quiet crowd, no one behind the bar. We waited about 5 minutes with no staff to be seen before we gave up and left.

Kathryn Hutter: Great place with friendly staff. Nice vibe. Because of the “situation” bars have to sell food so they offer peanut butter jelly sandwiches, cheese sandwiches, and popcorn. Best damn cheese sandwich I’ve ever had. 10/10. Can’t wait to come back when the world gets back to functioning correctly.

Dave Pineda: Tonight there was an incident with one of the bartenders on the second floor ( black guy on the right side). I ordered a drink and I gave him my card. He served me the drink but I did not receive my credit card back and I asked him, he told me that he had not received my credit card. I insisted because I had given him my credit card and he later found it on the floor and returned it to me. when he returned my credit card he told me he was on the floor, I told him at least one sorry would be better and that triggered him to start insulting me to such a degree that he grabbed my full drink and threw it away in the bar. I felt completely humiliated, this is not a place that stands up to these things, but I want to complain because these things should not happen in a place where we are a minority and we are here to support each other. I don't know if I will return to this place but the owners should take these reviews seriously so as not to allow something like this to happen again

Samy Azzam: On Jan 9, 2022 the bartender downstairs took a $58 Tip on a $17 tab without my authorization. My bank confirmed it was unauthorized, and I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bereau.
Response: Sorry you had this experience. It is entirely possible that the tip was entered into our system wrong by accident (or mis-read by the bartender). Either way, we would encourage you to also reach out to our management via lanterndc@gmail.com or by calling the bar so we can correct this error and make it right.

Dustin Barringer: Long-standing DC gay bar. Management is wonderful and friendly, as are all the staff. Home of DC’s shirtless men drink free on Thursdays

Sophie W.: I have only been here twice for the LOBO event that is hosted once every month. However, I can say that the place is well run with a focus on making sure people are safe and having fun. It's somewhere I look forward to go to and not feel anxious.
Response: Thanks, Justin! We're glad you enjoy your visits with us!

Ted Kidwell: Good fun and entertainment for Adults only good service and helpful friendly staff

Humberto Garcia: If there’s anything subpar to a dive bar, this is it. Bad service, rude employees.

Joshua Roe: One of the best gay bars in DC. Fun, friendly, down to earth. Def always worth a visit.

Nellie's Sports Bar: what do users think?


Terrell Singleton: Nellies is always a good time but they r always forcefully putting some of the girls out. The happy hour drinks r strong and the music is good. We got the wings and fries which of the three flavors(Buffalo bbq n plain) we got it was tasty. There was a long line inside to get to the upstairs patio. We decided to just stay downstairs since it wasn’t a birthday or a special occasion. They have something every nite sunday is drag brunch which is great entertainment(bingo game and performances) and good food.

Melissa Mahony: Went for the drag brunch for a bacheloretteparty and our crew had the best time!! Between food, drinks, and entertainment the staff knew how to keep their customers satisfied! Highly recommended if you are looking for a fun-filled brunch in DC!

Jake Onassis: The servers are great, but the DJ was AWFUL the last few times we've been there and only plays slow hip-hop. As a result, there's really no dancing and it kills the vibe. When we went a few years ago, it was an awesome place to dance to upbeat pop tracks. If you're looking for a fun, upbeat club, look elsewhere.

k Hall: The bar tenders were great, the security was super respectful (they deserve all the love) BUT the food was objectively nasty. The calamari was basically thickly breaded air, the tacos were tasteless and super dry, then finally the burger was just straight up nasty. I sent my burger back and after they took it they told me I could not get a refund or a replacement OR EVEN the plate I was already eating back. If I Knew I wasn’t going to get my money or a new plate back I would have suffered through the nasty burger because I already paid 14 dollars for it. I wish I took photos but I couldn’t because my plate was already taken from me! I spent over 65 dollars for very nasty food. At least the music was cool I guess.
Response: Mr or Ms Hall- it is not Nellie's policy to charge guests for food they did not eat. If you didn't enjoy your food and sent it back you shouldn't have been charged. Please contact me directly and we'll sort this out. Gm@nelliessportsbar.com

Ivania Solorzano: Average entertainment. They are based on how big your group is. We went with big group. They tell you they are paid with tips up front even when if you are waited on last. They will collect all their tips after 3 seconds of dancing then dance for 5 seconds more. Tip collecting will take up all their performance. Some will only walk around collecting all their tips and lip sing. That's all. They say come early for bunch at 1 but you'll won't eat till 3pm. We went for brunch paid $60 per person. Food was average. They ran out pretty quick. Drinks pretty pricy but lots of options. Again entertainment was average. I give 2 stars for the only girl who preformed with hype music till the end. She didn't touch any of her tips till her performance was over like a professional performer. The crowd went wild for her.

Arian Fisher: This review is for the drag brunch only. A few days ago, my bestie (first time at a drag brunch) and I traveled here for a drag brunch. When we arrived around 1 p.m., there was a rope blocking the brunch buffet so our only option was to walk upstairs (the buffet was not ready yet). Once we got upstairs, my friend and I grabbed a table and sat down. When my friend came back after getting a drink, I asked if she got the complimentary one included in our ticket price and she was told that we would get that downstairs. Then around 2 p.m., one of the queens walked around & started scanning tickets in order of the largest party size (15 people) and the parties were seated downstairs. My friend and I saw the writing on the wall (that we would probably be one of the last tables since we were a party of 2) so thankfully we met 2 other sweet girls and formed an alliance. We were seated next. Even though all the windows were open (on both floors) and fans were blowing, it was hot! Thankfully I brought my fan which helped a little. When we got downstairs, it was cramped, crowded, & dreadful because of the humidity. Shortly after, they opened up the buffet and went table by table. Then around 2:55, it was announced that they would start shortly (this was not what I expected since I had to be at the train station by 5 p.m., but it all worked out in the end). The food was pretty good, but since it was sweltering I didn't have much appetite. Now for the best part of the brunch: the queens. They were amazingly talented and I gave them as much money as I responsibly could. It's certainly not their fault that the logistics, communication, and organization were non-existent. My friend enjoyed her first drag brunch which is all that really matters to me, but I highly doubt that I will ever come back again in the summer.

Jade Jade: rude staff (people working near door at the end of the night) rude , terrible manager. I used to love to come here years ago and had a great time. from what ive heard recently it's really been downgrading rapidly in the last 6 years because of staff. last night I saw it in action, I'll never be back. don't support them until they hire people with souls!

Cole Hiser: Oh, Nellies. It's THE gay bar in DC for better or for worse. I would definitely note that it is not a dance club at night like many gay bars. People can mingle and talk over the music--if that's your vibe.

Antwan Beason: Your security denied me time to chat with the manger for nellies. His name was Wayne. I noticed that 2 of the security guards had an issue with gay men touching them. They were yelling it out loud. Not in a derogatory sense but at all. They were very upset and expressed their grievances after most of us patrons left. Noticing how they felt and my knowledge of the previous media attention I tried to bring it to managements attention. When I mentioned I wanted to speak to a manager I was ushered aggressively outside and denied any opportunity to express myself. The security company that you all continue to hire is homophobic and is connected to previous events. I personally foresee another interaction if something isn’t done. The sheer fact they blocked me from so waking m and pushed me outside after I said I wanted to chat with the manager is problematic. Then he said oh he don’t wanna talk to you. lol in my experience you all should’nt continue in that exclusive mentality or it will lead to your conclusion. Thank you Antwan Beason

Shana Bayton: Amazing place to hang out and vibe, great drinks, fun bartenders, lots of seating. Especially enjoyed the rooftop area, very nice!

Number Nine: what do users think?


Christian Balson: I’m a gay Englishman living in Palm Desert California, my 79yr old Mum & her Wife had drinks here this evening. They LOVED how they were treated by everyone, staff & customers!…… Thank you all for making my Mum feel so welcome ❤️

Jorge Velasquez (Trxpjayyy): I am new to the area. I looked up a place to go and unwind after work. Sadly this wasn't what I expected, after being ignored at the bar for 18 minutes I had to go to the bartender in order to get a drink. To my surprise I was not even greeted but handed a drink and left unattended for the rest of the visit. If a good experience is what you're looking for I highly recommend to look elsewhere as you'll receive nowhere near that at this establishment.

Richard: You need to make a reservation in order to get a table. Fair prices, good service and they’re doing a great show with Covid guidelines. Dance-pop music , good TVs, good seating, bathroom was clean. I recommend this place.

David Walker: As a Black queer person, this has never felt like a safe space for me.

Jayme Birgy: Number Nine is an LGBTQ-friendly/owned space situated in DC's gayborhood between historic Dupont & Logan Circles. People gather at Number Nine for handcrafted happy hour cocktails, a comfortable, well-lit atmosphere, music videos and the occasional live DJ during non-pandemic times. Iterations of this establishment have been serving the queer community for nearly 20 years. Number Nine supports the local community by hosting toy drives and sponsoring local LGBT sports teams, among other activities. Additionally, the ownership has created spaces across their brands that foster the growth of local talent such as performer KC B. Yoncé and artist DJ Chord. Be sure to also check out Nine's not-so-sisterly nightspot, TRADE, around the corner on 14th St.

Gregory Alan: I had a bartender here complain to me that I didn’t tip enough. He made a scene and was incredibly disrespectful. He told me to cross out my tip on the receipt and put zero because it wasn’t enough for him.

Bill Sturman: There was no Happy Hour and my margarita was watered down. 😟👎🏻

Charles Schehr: Rude outside staff . When someone is new and visiting they should be more understanding and accommodating . The staff working on the patio where so demeaning . I felt very unsafe and uncomfortable .

Charles Gordon-Conn: Great atmosphere. Great guys (especially my husband)!

Ty Williams: Decent bar. All ages and ethnicities. I love the two-for-one before 9:00 - just make sure you don’t lose your receipt. Can get pretty crowded on Fridays after work. Up and downstairs. Upstairs plays music and videos on a couple of small screens. Downstairs is usually ambient type music if someone isn’t playing on the piano. I give this place 3 stars. If the music was better (it’s mostly Lady Gaga or Madonna type songs) and they offered some type of bar food like fries or chicken fingers (anything to help soak up the liquor), I’d rate this place 5 stars. But I’ll be back again.

The Dirty Goose: what do users think?


Sam: I had a very strange encounter with the bouncer here, I handed him my ID and he told me that he couldn't let me in, confused I ask him why and there wasn't a response. I was with 5 other friends from out of town and was chipper and excited, he may have mistaken this for being drunk, or maybe mistaken me for someone else. I decided to go elsewhere and apparently this bouncer radioed into the clubs down the street which they also denied me. I'm still confused what his problem was? I decided to go somewhere else entirely and had a good time elsewhere.

Miss Guided: Literally make you stand outside to appear it’s a lot of people inside. Literally like 50 people left out while I was the first in line and I had to stand out there for optics. Only came bc homegirl was dj’n and a friend was there. And the bartender upstairs extremely rude and nasty. Will not be back to rhythmless nation again

Ben Hemenway: They overcharged us ($38 for two drinks, before tax, at a gay bar in DC. Please). Atmosphere wasn’t great either, but shout out to Tatianna, who always kills the gig!

James Greathouse: Bouncer / security at the bathroom openly accepts bribes to let people bypass the line and get upstairs. I am disappointed.

Tim Pfeiffer: One of DCs best lgbtq spots! The rooftop is spacious and there are always good times to be had.

Angela Hudson: First things first, I gave it 2 stars because they sell cookies and the cookies are delicious! That would have earned them 5 stars alone but the following experience warranted a loss of a few stars and I feel I'm being generous by even giving them 2. CREDIT CARD WAS CHARGED DOUBLE A DAY AFTER WE VISITED. We were there in a group of 4. We moved tables a few times due to the weather. Each time, we asked if we should close out our bill but the bartender said no that we could just move it with us. When we went to leave, we asked for the bill. We paid it and signed the receipt and left. The next day we had 2 charges on our CC. One charge was for the bill we paid and signed for. The other charge was for double the original charge. We tried to call to get an explanation but all phone numbers listed for the bar online do not work. We emailed the bar and the next day we received a response from the owner/bartender. His explanation was that when we went to close out, he didn't want us to have to wait while he went upstairs to see what our bill from the other bartender was so he just charged us an amount. Then later that evening he figured up what he thought we owed and charged us a second time for the full bill (the half we already paid plus the other half). He then said that IF we wanted to be refunded, we could call the next day. He left no number. We emailed back and said we needed a number to call and that of course we wanted a refund as we had been overcharged. We received no response for 2 days and had to email a second time. As of today, 6 days after we visited the bar, we still have not received a refund for the extra money we paid. Though the cookies are good and the drinks weren't bad, we won't be back.
Response: Hello Angela, Thank you for the feedback. This is Justin, the owner that has been speaking with Miguel (the owner of the tab) about this issue. I will admit a billing mistake was made. I would like to point out that the billing error occurred because we were extremely accommodating to your table and re-sat you twice on two different floors (indoors and on the rooftop) on Cinco de Mayo during COVID, when really we are suppose to keep table movements to a minimum. Yes, our tab system does carry with you, but before you moved for the second time the tab was closed out on the rooftop (the first and correct charge). When you moved back down to the first floor and Miguel asked to close out, I did look for your previous tab. It wasn’t there, but since Miguel was asking to close out the tab I figured the tab must have been deleted which can happen by accident. We were very busy and instead of making you wait I just recreated the tab based on only what I knew you ordered with me and charged the card for a lesser amount than the first charge (the second, incorrect charge). I responded to Miguel’s first email within 24 hours and he responded to mine about 36 hours after (a Saturday). I was out of town on Sunday and couldn’t respond, but immediately responded to his follow up on Monday (a day which we are closed) and set up a refund for Tuesday. I agreed to refund him in my original response on Friday. Unfortunately our encryption system requires that you re-enter the card number to provide a refund so I have to do it in person on the POS, which I don’t have access to remotely. I appreciate the feedback. I just wanted to provide context. This was a simple billing error that was made due to us going out of our way to accommodate your table. I immediately agreed to refund the tab. In my first email I even agreed to refund the higher amount, even though it is the correct charge due to the inconvenience. The delay in processing has simply been logistics. It is unfortunate that you walked away thinking this was a malicious billing tactic even as we were so accommodating to your table on one of the busiest bar days of the year during extremely complex times due to COVID. I hope you’ll reconsider your review. Thank you.

Joshua Roe: This is an unpretentious, fun, dive-y gay bar. Simple. Go and enjoy! Also, thank you for requiring proof of vax, smart ppl appreciate that.

luigi buscaglia: The employees are the farthest thing from friendly. Tony to be exact has a never ending attitude and her sense of entitlement is disgusting. He was rude to me and my friends every day we were there. Visiting out of town but definitely will not recommend this place when it’s employees are miserable, rude, entitled, and vulgar. Refusing to close our tab but demanded us to get out.

Braxton Mann: My friends and I had a really great time the other night. The staff was incredible. Patrick made us feel so welcomed. The drinks were strong, and delicious. And great safety precautions were taken by the staff for COVID.

Jacksman: Best priced drinks on U street and love the expanded rooftop! It gets busy on weekends, so arrive early if you don’t want to wait in line.

JR's Bar: what do users think?


N: Was there for the rupaul drag race viewing. Drag queen was fun. Drinks are very strong. I tried the seasonal spring specials. Crowd had young and older people. Was lively.
Response: Thanks for your review and feedback. We are happy you had a great time!

Matt Conrad: I walked into JR's this afternoon to sit and do some work, while I figured out where I'd stay tonight. I was having a fine time, in the mostly empty bar, with music videos streaming above. My service dog sat directly beside me. About 45 minutes and two beers in, a man approached me from behind and tapped me on the shoulder. As I turned, he immediately told me I would need to move to a corner of the bar, because the bar was going to get crowded and my dog could get stepped on. While I appreciate his desire to protect my service animal, I told him that I did not want to move since there was less than 15 people at the spacious bar at the time. He snapped and told me he didn't want to hear about it when my dog got hurt. I didn't understand. I was literally sitting at the bar doing work, which I wouldn't have been able to do if the bar was out-of-hand, and a stranger starts telling me I need to get out of the main bar area. I asked him to calm down and told him he was coming at me wrong. He got defensive and so I asked if he owned the bar or was just a bouncer trying to prepare for crowd control. He informed me he was a co-owner of the bar. I asked do you know the law regarding disabilities and service animals? He didn't respond. Instead he just came back aggressively with an insult. I told him I'd be happy to show him the law if he wasn't familiar. He said, "I'm done here" and stormed off. I asked the bartender if this person really was a co-owner, and he said yes. I cannot believe the owner's behavior and shortness with a customer, especially one who chose his establishment after reading how welcoming it was to those in the LGBTQ community. I was unaware because I'm from NJ and have been driving for the past three days stopping along the way to rest. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The owner's actions are a clear violation of the ADA and frankly hurtful. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I expect more. I expect patience and understanding from owners in our community, not aggression. I ask anyone who reads this to consider if this is a place they want to support going forward. I have PTSD. Not because I chose it or want, but bc I endured years of child abuse. And my dog is my companion. We need to respect each other better and it starts with those in leadership positions!

Thomas Romberg: Jr's are like family to me . They are great and friendly and they will look out for you . They were there for me when I drank way too much . That place is the first place.that I came out of the closet . I love there showtumes and drag queen shows . They go all out .

Peyton Doyle: JR's is a staple of the DC gay scene. It is fairly spacious, with friendly bartenders, cheap drink deals, fantastic music (plus music videos!), a nice crowd in a great location. Not much to complain about!

Norman M: This place use to be so fun. Sad new management has wanted to make it less diverse. I’m sure you figure out the rest ❤️
Response: We are sorry to hear that you have a negative perception of JR's, and we invite you back anytime to explore all that we have to offer. Surviving and thriving through a global pandemic has been tough, and, like many bars, JR's has continued to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of our customers and our community. This means bringing in new shows and supporting our local drag and performance scenes. This means updating light and sound systems. And this means working with new DJs and expanding our music selection to more genres. We understand that not every event or song will be everyone's cup of tea (or...vodka soda in this case!), but our ability to adapt, evolve, become MORE diverse, and cater to a wide community has been the cornerstone of our success for more than 35 years. So, our invite stands.…please come check out some of the new cocktails, DJ's, shows, and events at JR's.

Clint Davis: It was heartbreaking to see how far JR’s has gone downhill over the past few years. I was there recently with friends and it was filthy and lifeless compared to the many years that it was my “gay Cheers” bar. Someone needs to take over management (or ownership) and breathe some life into what should be a shining jewel of festiveness on 17th Street. Perhaps the owners or management of Annie’s should take over.
Response: Thanks so much for your feedback, Clint. We are sorry you had a negative experience and invite you to visit us again. As a pillar of the LGBTQ+ community in DC, we have come together over the course of these difficult last few years to keep our doors open and provide a space for people to safely gather. We host some of the most innovative and entertaining events (Lady Gaga Remix Party, Jukebox Heros, The Love Letter Series, etc.) while keeping our traditions alive (Showtunes, etc.). We are confident that you likely visited us on a slow night (every bar has them from time to time) and we look forward to meeting your expectations when you visit us next.

William Critz: I think I will visit again (been living in Baltimore for too many years). Used to live across the street, and I always LOVE JR's. Many years ago I was the first person to order a sandwich there, and it was awesome! Also met 3 different boyfriends there MAGNIFICENT !!!

Emilio Aguilar Cubilla: Strong Drinks at a great price, they have drag shows and the bartenders are super friendly

ADAM CARTER: A fun and friendly place! Great show and low prices. Very attentive bartenders. There is a promotion here, you can get a free room for 1 hour or 2 free cocktails to choose from, you need to register at 909gay,com create a profile and show it to the bartender.

Alexander Gomez: Ever since Jr's has been under new management, the bar is now an even more welcoming, fun and relaxing atmosphere. I often come here for great music and nice drinks that are affordable for the area. The staffs are friendly, courteous and awesome!!

Larry's Lounge: what do users think?


Gregory Gladkov: We had a really terrible interaction with one of the bartenders here. Separately from our interaction, she slammed the bar very hard to wake up a drunk person sitting next to us. Then, when we asked to close our tab, she argued with us about the letter my friend’s last name started with (it’s two names hyphenated). It really is a shame because the vibe of the bar is really nice.

Jordan: Came here during Pride and had a great time. Friendly crowd, drinks tasted good but still had alcohol, what more could you ask for?

Damien: Stopped in for a quick drink before dinner. The bartender was really nice and was helpful with drink suggestions.

Julia Byrd: Not bad for a classic gay bar. Service was good, definitely a favorite for the locals. Can get pretty busy and crowded. Just like anywhere else in the world, be watchful for weirdos.

Sam Johnson: My friend and I stopped in for a few drinks. We had a great time. Service was prompt and pleasant and everyone seemed genuinely pleased to be there. I'd like to visit again next time I'm in town.
Response: Sam, it's wonderful to know you had a great time here with your friend. Our team is proud to know they treated you to some incredible drinks. We're glad you left with a good impression! We look forward to having you back again soon. -Ron, Owner

E S: Speakeasy gay bar. Alot of older gays here. Heavy pours, late hours, cheap drinks. Come thru!

Neel Roshania: Spent my cool spring Tuesday evening after an 8 hour commute here. Steven can make any cocktail 🍸

Jamie Williams: Cute little neighbourhood gem gay bar. This place has a very chill vibe with mostly locals hanging out and having a cocktail. They have outdoor seating which is super cute and there is always someone to chat with.
Response: There's nothing more rewarding than making sure our customers have a five-star experience, Jamie. Thanks for taking the time to share how your last visit went! -Ron, Owner

Jose Andrés Morocho: Those bar tenders were horrible, mean, disrespectful and over all the worst welcome ever. Don’t go there! And if you do be ready!
Response: Jose, we're truly upset to hear about your recent experience, and I an assure you we'd never want you to feel unwelcomed here. Our team works hare to provide an exciting yet open space for all our guests, so we apologize if you didn't encounter this during your visit. We'd love to invite you back to give us another chance to impress you. -Ron, Owner

Jay H: Nice atmosphere, actually able to carry on a conversation with whoever's there. Bartender was really nice. Prices were good and the drinks stiff! Definitely will return.

Pitchers DC: what do users think?


H D: Been many times. Staff and bartenders are all-around great. Younger, diverse crowd—expect lots of women. A fun time with plenty of space, a fun dance floor (many levels), and reasonably-priced drinks as far as DC clubs go.

Adam: Fun place. Generally a fun vibe. Too many straight women, though. It’s a gay bar being inundated by straight girls looking for gay tourism and to “feel safe” but get loud and obnoxious and pushy and overly confident. Pitchers needs to be more aware.

Leah Jackson: This is not a safe place for gay women, or anyone for that matter. I am disappointed and hurt by the sexist — yes, sexist against women, although they proudly tout their lesbian bar — and rude staff/bouncers that work here and will certainly never return.

Adam Blackington: What can I say about Pitchers? From the owner to the bar tenders, to security, bar backs, and other support staff, I can’t help but take note of how courteous, respectful, and kind everyone at Pitchers is. My experience, even during the pandemic, is always filled with love, laughter, and awesome drinks. Whether you’re in a group or alone and looking for new friends (or maybe something more?) you won’t regret coming to Pitchers. Watch out though, they pour heavy here!

Bianca Martinez: I love Bobby as a bartender!!!Always takes the best care of me and everyone is always so friendly. Can never stop coming here!! My go to place every weekend

Joshua Roe: Shocked by the low rating, this bar is chill, fun and friendly. Thank you to gay bars that have stayed open during the pandemic and are trying to keep people safe while also giving us a place to socialize. Can't wait to go back here!

Daniel L: Love this spot so much it’s hard to know where to start. Haven’t tried the food but have seen plenty of other people happily eating. Love Thirst Trap Thursdays, the drag show, where the spacious dance floor becomes a runway. Make sure to check out their social media for any upcoming events; FB: “Pitchers DC”, IG: “PitchersDC”. There are so many levels to this place that when thinking about it I honestly have to mentally walk around each floor/section. It’s not too big where it’s confusing but just big enough that there’s always variety and another opportunity to mix it up in a different area. There are video games in League Of Her Own, the connected lesbian bar, and in a few other spots around pitchers. Drinks are reasonably priced given the fact that it is in a busier area of DC. The reality is though I could think of a few other bars that cater to the same clientele with similar qualities but the biggest attraction here is the attitude of the bars patrons and employees. When you first walk in it’s obvious how great of a time everyone’s having (whether they are chilling or dancing away) because of peoples smiles and warm personalities. If you’ve checked out other LGBTQ bars you’ve probably stumbled upon one of those bars that feels like model homeland and anyone who doesn’t look a certain way doesn’t feel accepted. In addition, the homeland for some reason only hires and trains their bartenders to have an attitude and to look you up and down after taking your order as if to judge whether your worth their time. I only bring up bars like that because it’s the complete opposite here, to the point that I’ve caught myself wanting to tip plenty of pitchers bartenders the price of the drink (essentially doubling my out of pocket expense) because of their sweet smile and welcoming demeanor. Plus I don’t know who’s hiring the staff but great job to the HR department for scoring some veryyyy attractive ladies and gentlemen to run the door, manage the bars, and do all the other jobs. Bottom line, I know plenty of us grew up wishing/hoping/praying for a space where we could feel accepted while just being ourselves and the reality is that this is that place. Whether your just visiting DC for a hot second, a DMV resident looking for a fun time, or someone who’s not sure if the bar scene if for them, I challenge you to check out this spot because I couldn’t imagine a single person being disappointed. Simply put it’s a lovable DC destination for all.

Tiya Kothary: The place is great - the owner is on a power trip and enjoys ~trying~ to kick people out. He yelled at my friends and I who were seated at a table for not wearing masks while we were actively eating and then came back to harass us. Met multiple people who warned me about this person. Overall decent bar but the owner is a terrible person. Would recommend if owners change - otherwise don’t give your business here.

Bailey Curtis: Hands down, one of the best bars in DC. Drinks are strong and the bartenders are super nice. The entire building is well kept even on its busiest nights, everyone inside was kind and welcoming. I felt safe and had a great time from the moment I first stepped into the door to the moment I left. Highly recommended.

Greg Davis: Sports themed gay bar in the lively neighbourhood of Adams Morgan. Great atmosphere and good value drinks. This place gets busy upstairs.

A League Of Her Own: what do users think?


Bobbi DeAnda: This bar is THE BEST. The lights and the colors make you happy right when you walk in and then you go downstairs and there's old school Nintendo!!!!!! Took me back! I had the time of my life! There's also a rooftop deck and a dance floor - they have everything! Really like this spot! Also felt super covid safe - masks required and proof of vaccination to enter.

Dani Ciscell: Its a great place Over all with 3 different vibes in a lot of great specialty drinks. Everyone who works there is super hot. But they need to stop using somebody's phone for the bottom bar. I love that if you forget to close your tab they close it out with 20% gratuity

Hillary Klingshirn: i expected it to feel more like a lesbian bar or even a women’s space but most of the bartenders were men and the place was filled with them. everyone was nice though and i thought the video games were really cool. wish they had more beer options on tap. music on the dance floor was just okay

Dougiefresh20 D: So I have been here a couple of times even when Covid was bad and never got asked to show my vaccination card. So coming all the way from VA to be turned around was questionable but to add insult to injury the lady at the door was rude and not at all welcoming. I’m not saying it was a race issue but the second that me and my girlfriend walked in she looked like she didn’t want us in there and for this to be a lesbian bar this would be the last place I would expect to be judged.

Morgan Eaves: Best place to go out & dance in the area. The music is great & everyone is so welcoming. Definitely my recommendation of where to go in AdMo!

AVATonyT: Apparently they support Ukraine and obviously LGBTQ but NOT BLACK LIVES MATTER.. there is no recognition for black lives mattering.. be careful where you spend your money brothers and sisters

Melissa Limage: Awesome place to have drinks and dance the night away. Bartenders were quick and friendly. First floor was more of a chill vibe with seats all over. Second floor is the dance floor which was completely packed. It was nice to see people of different races and labels together. Definitely will return sooner rather than later.

Jordyn Taylor: I really enjoyed myself here. Good music, people, drinks, etc. My only issue is that the bartender took it upon themselves to leave a tip of $20. I was never given a reciept but didn’t think much of it at the time since it was busy. I don’t know if the bartender thought my memory would be lacking b/c I bought a round for my friends or what. I remembered (b/c I thought the price was crazy for 4 shots). In total I was charged $70 for 4 shots. I reported it to my CC company immediately. With all that said, I’d probably go back. I really liked the vibe. I just won’t purchase anything from the place for obvious reasons.

M: This place was recommended by my “ friend “ as a nice gathering and welcoming place for all , and it is really nice and welcoming for all ( I am a trans), There is a negative “lesbian “ attitude here , the way they act around “men “, and transgenders , one girl she asked me when did I start being a “ gay “ , I looked at her , I’m not a gay , I’m a trans women , you know that “ T “ in LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈,,, show some respect .

Bailey Curtis: I can not express just how great of a time I had here. The bartenders are super nice, even when its crazy busy, they always manage to serve you quickly, accurately, and with a great attitude. The entire building was amazing, everyone was in a great mood and nobody came off as creepy or inappropriate like many typically do at other bars. Hands down, my new favorite bar in D.C.

Kiki: what do users think?


Dre Marlowe: My partner and I have been going to Kiki since it opened in early January of 2022. This is a super nice LGBT bar in DC. We have experienced all of the LGBT bars in DC and there is a reason Kiki is our favorite spot. From the front door to the back this is a honest hangout spot. Security is always super nice and inclusive. Kiki has some of the Best bartenders that have worked in DC with years of experience. The owner is very sweet and you can find him around the bar some nights. Outdoor area is clean and a great spot to socialize away from the crazy dance floor and DJ. They are always looking to improve the experience you get. Drag shows and underwear contests are always fun. Hoping to see what the future brings when the second half of the building is open. The line is worth the wait!

sergio venegas: Edited: so it turns out the limit of people is due to their license, which is not in their control but still not the best when their total number doesn’t let them to fill the space. Watch out: expect to make long lines in busy nights and expect to find the place downstairs empty - apparently it’s all due to limit on total of ppl they can have. Still not sure if worth the one hour line to enter! … Once you make it to the second floor the music was fine, drinks, and everything else just like any other bar in town. Nothing special.
Response: Hi Sergio, Currently, we're allowed an occupancy of a 129 people. This number is enforced by the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) and supplied by Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). Going over this number will simple result in a fine to the business and a chance of losing the liquor license. Unfortunately, at this time there isn't much we can do to increase the number. We hope you reconsider your review as this is simply out of our control.

Huy Truong: Update: (5/13/2022): The owner did reach out to me and my partner regarding the incident. they are very polite and acknowledged what happened was unacceptable. They took the issue very seriously and placed the bartender on probation. That showed they really care about business ethics and want to ensure this is a safe place for LGBTQ+ minorities. It really satisfied us with their response. Therefore, we will give them another chance, and continue to support their business. Since this is a very nice LGBTQ+ bar, if the owner keeps his operational ethics this way, I am sure the bar will thrive. -------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- My experience at Kiki is not a good experience. I and my partner went to Kiki for the first time on a Saturday. We are residents of DMV for years and love the bars here. However Kiki left a really bad taste in our mouths. We ordered our first drinks from a bartender (who was white). He is very nice. The drinks were railed vodka tonic. $8 each - reasonable price for gay bars in DC. However, when we went down stair to order the same drinks from another bartender (who was Black). He charged us $10 each for the same drinks. In highlights, we did ask him if the bar take cash. And we saw him put our $20 plus $5 tips in his pocket for 2 drinks. We knew right there, he saw the opportunity to do some hustling aka stealing. There is no paper trail since it was paid in cash. It really made us very uncomfortable and upset. It really ruined our moods for the night. We went back the bartender upstair and ordered another round. It was still $8 each. We told him what happened to us down stair. He was embarrassed and told us that, he will talk to the bartender down star since it had happened before. The whole incident really makes us very upset and unsure if we want to go back to Kiki. We are local residents and been in gay bars since Town was here. We comes to no. 9, Dirty Goose, Trade, Uproar every weekend, and yet never experienced this kind of treatment ever. As someone who immigrated from Asia, and have accent, I have experienced more discrimination since Covid happened. So this just makes me feel even worst cause I feel ripped off by another marginalized group. We are the only Asian there, so we have to pay extra to be accepted? Overall, I am not sure if i can ever give Kiki another chance. But if anyone visit Kiki, order drinks upstair, the bartender there is very honest, nice, and you will never feel ripped off or discriminated cause you look different from everyone in the bar, and feel like you have to pay extra just to be there.
Response: Hi Huy, This is very disappointing and I completely understand how upsetting it is. First, I would like to offer you an apology. I never want anyone to feel that they have been discriminated against here at Kiki. Kiki was opened for everyone to enjoy and feel safe in. I can't express how sadden I am to hear this. A full investigation will occur immediately. If you can please contact me through the website I would greatly appreciate.

Christian Berle: When you think the St. Regis is expensive, come to Kiki, where 4 vodka sodas ran my husband and I $104. Oh, and that was a happy hour price. Bar was empty, I can understand why. Never coming here again.
Response: Hi Christian, still waiting for your email. 4/15/22. Thank you! Hi Christian, If you contact us through our website we can review your bill. Absolut is the only vodka included in hour happy hour at $6 or $7 per drink. Thank you

Robin Ramsey: Small space and $40 for 2 RBVs and a beer. No thank you.Does anyone else think it's weird to have live camera feeds of the dance floor going to TVs in other places in the bar?

Cole Hiser: It's a hit or a miss like most bars, depending on the night. The security person made a comment last time saying, "I don't know what you all want me to address you as..." (like in a mocking tone) so I assume someone called him out for misgendering people before. It was a bit off-putting, and I know he didn't mean it in a malicious way, but a gay bar is the last place you want to experience microaggressions.

Harold Cartier: Disappointed. Thought I'd check out this new bar. The guy at the door and the bartender weren't the friendliest. Also $20 for a double is a little ridiculously expensive. Don't really feel a need to go back.

David Clark: Fabulous doormen John & Kadeem! Super friendly & respectful - make you feel safe & secure in today’s crazy world.

Joe Drake: Loved it!!! Went with a friend and everyone was friendly. Loved the vibe, would definitely come again. Highly recommend!

Kevin Jeter: Kiki is a wonderful low key be yourself place. Sexy men adds to the vibe.

The Fireplace: what do users think?


Gregory Hill: This place is so welcoming and friendly! I love The Fireplace! I stopped in here because it was raining and had the best time. Looking for a laid-back Cheers type bar? This is it! Bill the bartender is super cool and there are lots of regulars who are so nice and willing to help a visitor find some cool stuff to do! Coming here was the best choice I made today! ❤️❤️❤️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

D B: Strong cheap drinks. Music is in serious need of assistance. Playing random music from your the device of someone 60+ years old for a majority 20-40 year old crowd probably isn't the best idea. At least it doesn't smell like pee when you first walk in anymore.

Kevin Gowen: The Fireplace is dark, gloomy and completely uninviting. I give it two stars only because the bartender was friendly. It is a shame to see what this place has become.

Michael Watkins: The Firplace - Three drink maximum has been in effect as many years that I know no other place to order a best bar drink outside during a bar crawl. Stay cozy and affluent - star approved.

Brian Draine: Nice drinks for a excellent price they need a Crédit card machines so they people can stop going to the atm but the fee is super cheap they so you can beat it.also they need to open the up stairs windows so they fresh air can flow in that's why I stay downstairs most of the time

Delvin Miller-Wright: Nice place. Drinks are great.

dc phatts: Great Atmosphere. ❣Great Drinks. 🥂Good Times. 😍

Darnell T.: Good energy. Even on a slow night, crowd seemed to be in good spirits.

Lamont Ambrister: Not a lot of space at all.. and they dont accept card payments for drinks.

Clifton Adams: Although it takes a minute for the bartender to take your order. The bar is pretty good. Drinks will definitely get you lit. The people varies from different ages. Definitely an urban bar which I like. But I don’t like how they close at 2:30 am on Weekends. Kinda early, but other than that i have been going back ever since.

Freddie's Beach Bar: what do users think?


Alfred Jones: Excellent time! Everyone there was friendly and nice, what a wonderful time. The bartender was great - the flashing flamingo is hilarious as a drink and I love it. There is a 24 hour diner right down the way as well for the after drinking munchies so it has a great location.

Jacob Blandford: Very fun bar/restaurant. The food is good and the service is great! Go for a show and enjoy the entertainment. There is a $5 cover but it is worth it.

Sangeeta Rao: Every time I come here I feel at home. So welcomed and so accepted, Freddie’s has been there for me in so many ways I don’t even know where to start. From drag bingo on Wednesday, to weekend brunch, to a happy hour (4-7pm) cocktail with friends after a long week, Freddie’s is there and will never disappoint! This LGBTQ+ and straight friendly bar also has fun karaoke and trivia nights. Everyone who works here is an absolute gem and have great intuition about split checks and orders even when you’re in a big group. I personally enjoy the nachos or fried shrimp and the prince inspired purple rain cocktail. Freddie, the owner, is also an incredible person and pillar of the community. Located not too far from the pentagon, this establishment provided a safe space for all service members and has always provided a fun and inviting environment regardless of lifestyle. He regularly hosts fundraisers and events for student scholarships and local LGBTQ+ support groups like AGLA (Arlington-Alexandria Gay Lesbian Alliance). There is nothing more exhilarating than winning one of the raffle drawings at one of these Freddie’s events, so I highly recommend you check out when the next one is!

Benjamin W.: A fun welcoming place for people of all backgrounds. 5 stars for the atmosphere. Where else can you find drag bingo, karaoke, and a place open until 1:30 am on a Wednesday? I'd say they could improve their mixed drink quality, though they get points for style and the prices are very reasonable for both food and beverages. Maybe a bougie drink of the week with top shelf ingredients? In any case, have a drink or two at Freddie's, save a bit of cash, have some fun. The inside has no shortage of interesting decor as well...

Angella Morrison: Second time visiting and this time around didn’t go so well, we were asked to leave because they needed the table… After driving from NYC FOR my bestie birthday we where disappointed for sure.

Nicolas Davila: Freddie’s is a vibrant and inclusive place, with a great brunch, great prices, and a fantastic friendly staff. Our server James was extremely attentive and friendly, he made us want to keep coming back. They have Karaoke every night which we’ll surely be back to try out after such a good experience.

Gaelle Claude: Such a cute bar!!! Freddie’s Beach Bar has a great ambiance. I actually stumbled upon it while working in Virginia and funny enough they were having an event so I stuck around for that. This is a LGBTQ restaurant — just throwing that out there. On Wednesdays they have Drag Bingo, which is one of the events I was referring to, it was pretty fun. If interested, you need to rsvp a week in advance. The staff there is super nice and friendly. I made it for happy hour too! Lucky day over all lol. I ordered a piña colada and blue cheese burger. The food was good and so was that cocktails.

James Leach: Wow! Had Sunday brunch with my husband, Daughter and our nanny this morning at Freddie’s. Staff was great, food was off the chart and experience was 10/10! The donuts with ham and cheese are a huge hit!!! Thanks for making the day!

Michael: Hands down the best Drag Brunch in the DC/NoVa area. No one can compete with Destiny B Childs! I have seen this show many times, and each time is different! Perfect for a get together or a getaway! Great staff and atmosphere.

William West Hopper (DC Car Guy): Nice spot for a drink or a meal. Not a crazy place very relaxed. More like a neighborhood bar.

Uproar Lounge & Restaurant: what do users think?


Brian Copes: Went last night for a night out of gay bar hopping and fun with my boyfriend and it was nice. Loved the multiple floors, DJs, and outdoor patio space. The bathroom was even clean and nice too. It wasn’t a popular night due to low crowds, but overall I was impressed with the venue and possibilities once there’s a good size crowd. Overall, I would recommend it but make sure you go on a good night where you have the energy of the crowd with you to dance and drink the night away.

Tony B: Great bear bar in D.C.! Prices are reasonable, service was great and the staff is very friendly! They even brought out free snacks while you we’re having your drinks! Love this place! 3 floors and the rooftop deck is very nice!

Aránzazu Ascunce: The food is always consistently luscious and tasty... what really took this experience over the top was our amazing server! She had 10 tables at once and treated us like there was no one else in the room. Give this woman a huge raise, she was phenomenal!

Alejandro S.: Excellent Caribbean house music on the roof top. I haven't dance that much in a long time. I liked the fact that crowd is very diverse and doesn't seem shallow like in other places. Go straight to the third floor.

Cole Hiser: One of the best gay bars in DC for sure. It feels very welcoming, but there are very few women (to be expected for a gay bar--just wanted to note that).

Roman Makonnen: Food and drinks were good, but I was overcharged. I signed the credit card slip for $14 ($10 drinks and $4 tip) and somehow it was changed to $44. I disputed it, but doesn't make me trust the place.

mat t: Had a great time here, multiple floors of music, the dj's here pump, haven't tried the food yet, drinks are a bit pricey but decent.

C Meadows: Love the roof and snacks they provide on Sundays. The music has also been great lately.

Luis Madrigal: Great place. I visited in April/May for a conference and wanted to get away from the hotel. While they didn't have scotch on the ground floor, bourbon and soda did fine. Bartender was nice and pleasant. Hope to revisit the next time I'm in D.C. P.S. Nacho plate is enormous and will easily feed multiple people!

KOBI: A great spot to spend time w friends, especially the roof top bar. Great music, outstanding DJs!

Licht Cafe: what do users think?


Maxwell D.: Don’t kid yourself, this isn’t a cafe. It has that vibe but it has bar snacks and a cheese board for food. This is a very chill LGBTQ+ bar with a lounge style atmosphere that rarely gets louder than conversational volume. The cocktails are pretty good as well and won’t destroy your wallet. It’s very quickly becoming a regular spot for a laid back evening.

Francisco R: Nice small cocktail menu, good crowd, music at a nice level to talk with friends or strangers. Unfortunately, my order took 25 minutes…for an old fashioned. The bar staff made drinks for large group that arrived after me and my guess is that they completely forgot my order. Bartender apologized but it’s not a good first impression.
Response: Hi Francisco, thank you for the valuable feedback. Sounds like you are correct that your order got lost in the mix. Our apologies. Would love another chance to earn your business and a five star review. Hope to see you again! -Licht

Stacey J. Halliday: Licht is a very welcome addition to the DC scene, bringing warm European cafe culture, delicious drinks, and elegant design to U Street. The space is a fun and relaxed with, of course, amazing cocktails! I can’t wait to try the expanded menu and become a regular.

Charlie Souvannavong: Small cozy gay bar. The bartender was very friendly. She also made great drinks. My friends and I had a nice time. It's a good place to just have a drink and catch up.

Tommy Hart: Went because I heard it was good and craft cocktails. Not so much. Yeah space was cute but tiny. But cocktails were basic as any other bar and not done well AT ALL. Ordered an Old Fashion. Lady bartender muddled the fruit (you don’t do that for this drink) and then put it all in a shaker and poured over crushed iced. Not at all how you make this drink. Worst Old Fashion I ever had. My friend ordered a Grey Goose Martini. They literally asked him would you like gin or vodka. These bartenders don’t have a clue what they are doing. MAKE REAL COCKTAILS WITH ACTUAL ICE CUBES AND TEACH YOUR BARTENDERS HOW TO MAKE A REAL DRINK. Telling my friends not to bother going. Waste of money. Better drinks elsewhere. I was excited to go and so let down. I’ll go elsewhere until they figure out how to make drinks. Get someone in there to show your bartenders how to make a real drink please!

Daniel Arrieta: This is an great spot for chill times with friends, or a fun relaxed date. The decor is just amazing, and the seating very comfortable. The service was excellent!! The drinks were made with care and attention, and tasted delicious :-)

Amin Spana: Must try! Greg makes great drinks! The bartenders were friendly and carried on a lively conversation with patrons seated at the bar. It doesn’t accommodate large crowds which I find attractive.

Mark Meier (He/Him/His): Licht is the best bar in DC! Craft cocktails here are fantastic. Ask for Markco—he won’t let you down. Licht is relaxed and a perfect counter to the bar energy in DC

John Gilbert: Cute little spot for drinks! Very welcoming space with friendly staff.

Jackie Yuille: Spencer and Markco were great and helping us host our post wedding celebration. Spencer put together a great slide show of my wife and myself to be show on the tv’s in the cafe. While Markco hand craft a specialty spirit for the happy couple for our gust to partaken. They were generous enough to allow us to reserve space on one side of the cafe to entertainer guess. The night was truly fabulous!!

Mike Johnson: Sooooo much fun! I went on a Friday night and the place was packed. I got a room for some privacy and then walked around the place. There were so many guys to choose from. I just took one after another to my private room. I was exhausted at the end of the night. What an experience!

Gerard Cosby: Some of the staff is nice some of them are a big Judgemental and Definitely exercise the gate keeper clause by accepting coronavirus virus’s cards for some and not others. A great to disguise Be accepted in the not. One day I was accepted and the other i was denied access with the same documentation. Same letter I wrote to the manager.

Cam Kirsch: Super dirty and the demographic is a lot older than expected. I wouldn’t say it’s a bad place, it’s just not my scene with the age group there.

Gary Ma: Great staff. Surprisingly small. Relatively clean. Absurd rule on the rooms: technically you are only supposed to have one person per room. Only bathhouse to ever have that rule. Thank goodness the silly rule was never enforced while I was there. Makes zero sense as I would obviously pay extra for a room only if I wanted privacy for a hookup. I certainly wouldn't pay that much money so I could take a nap. Speaking of which, pricey but understandable as it's DC, where a parking spot can be rented for $10000 a year.

WEISS: Overpriced: Average room + entrance fee- = I paid 40$. Way too expensive. They make u pay for the room, otherwise you’re destined to wander around the corridors and say yes to whomever got the room first. Also they say the line for the rooms is huge, but it’s not - they do it on purpose to give you more expensive options when they have plenty of cheap ones. Dirty: self-explanatory. Sauna was barely warm. The floor was disgusting. Men: mostly old (55+). Boring. Little action. Wouldn’t recommend this place.

Jeffer Ddk (Jeffd337): The rooms are a bit pricey for the short amount of time you get to stay in them. Staff was attentive and knew what they were doing but not very friendly. They were definitely stern, straight faced city types. You’re way better off going on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night if you want attractive men, most other days it’s a gamble. Wouldn’t visit again unless they were having an event or party.

Derek Hawthorne: This place is clean, nice staff and centrally located. Their room rates are very high for the space you get. You can barely get in and close the door. No Cumunion fun, the dark room is closed, the steam room often smells like urine and dry sauna is tiny and very hot but doable. With limited options in DC its ok but, they no it and make you pay dearly for it. I still go but no where near as often as I did before. At this rate it will soon be just a gym and may become a Planet Fitness...joking....but it could happen.

Dale Kawamura: The front desk staff is extremely rude and unfriendly. Especially to out of town guests. Don’t expect any kind of help or special consideration if you’ve never been to this club before. We were visiting from out of town and we’re given bad advice and checked out thinking that we would be able to step out get something to eat and come back and enjoy the club. We were not told that there was a rule saying that you could not return to the club within six hours of checking out. We clearly were told that there wouldn’t be a problem if we just went out to get some food and come back. But when we were turned we were turned away by the extremely rude front desk staff. In fact They shut the little people door on our faces when they did not want to hear our concerns.

Gregory Gardener: The staff is very friendly, and the facility is clean, but those are the only positives of the place. I've been patronizing Crew Club for over 10 years, and things have gone downhill lately. In the past, repairs were made promptly, but lately that's not the case. The shower nozzles and on/off levers have been is disrepair for quite some time. The bench seating in the dry sauna have been is disrepair as well. The steam room no longer works, and according to one of the staff, there are no plans to fix it. There were four video channels for the adult videos. Now there are only two channels. One of the video screens is broken and hasn't been replaced. Not too long ago they did a good job of re-branding that included repainting, but lately it seems the management has given up on the place. Add to that they've closed the darkroom, and they no longer have Cumunion Parties. The only reason people still patronize Crew Club is it's the only game in town, so to speak. I wouldn't be surprised to show up one day and see the place closed down. At this point the prices they charge aren't worth it.

Walter M Mayberry: Must safer then Glorious arts and now it's kicking I remember the shelter days we all called crew club the executive showers and Spa and just as nice today

Black Whiskey: what do users think?


Nicholas Miles: the selection of whiskeys is beyond amazing! and Joseph is an amazing! basically, the bar is amazing! lol

Jon Meyers: My favorite local bar here in Logan Circle. The selection of bourbons is second to none, (well, perhaps second to Jack Rose, but they do larger pours here at Black Whiskey). Great knowledgeable bar staff that can help you if you’re intimidated by the vast selection.

Laura Okpala: Bartenders refused to serve me for no reason - me and friends had just walked in and I was waiting quietly at the bar for my turn. They just refused to acknowledge I was there wile serving everyone around me. I suspect it’s because I look different from most of their clientele *cough* - Thanks to the preppy guy standing next to me for ordering my drinks for me because he also recognized how egregious they were being! Terrible bartenders definitely!

theDSsucks: Upstairs! Otherwise you end up at the gay bar. The 2 bartenders were both really nice, polite, and patient as I admired their whiskey menu. The whiskeys are a tad bit pricey but the 1oz option buffers the guilt of spending that much on some rare stuff I wanted to try. The good stuff is pricey so that’s not their fault. Industry standard. Thanks guys!
Response: Thank you for the kind words!

Matt Leaf: Don’t let the hole-in-the-wall feel fool you—this is a seriously amazing whiskey bar. The no frills, comfortable atmosphere sets the stage for what this place is about: seriously good whiskey. I highly recommend getting their Black Whiskey Manhattan. They blend the high end ingredients and age them together in oak casks. The result is an amazingly flavorful and unique cocktail you won’t find anywhere else.

N T-K: Very small but the vibe is large! The music was great and people seem to be having a great time! The music was loud enough so we could all hear. Loved that versus the other bars where tou hear more chatter than music. Also the bathrooms were really clean.

Saif Areikat: I’ve been there multiple times this summer. This place is very lively especially on Fridays and Saturdays. The staff is always making sure everyone is well and very courteous. A plate of goldfish on the house! Totally recommend 10/10

Blaine Chitwood: Awesome bar and as a bourbon connoisseur I anticipated coming here more than any bar in dc but the blonde door man said he would watch my blantons while I walked down to get a friend and he said I’m not your “drinks baby sitter bro”. Huge fan of the bar and had a $670+ bar tab but will not return because of this employee. I am truly saddened by this. 😪
Response: Sir, I'm sorry your experience was not exceptional. However, you may be misremembering what actually happened. You and your date tried to leave our bar with your drinks. This is a violation of our policy and DC law. Our Barback assumed you were leaving and bussed the glassware. In addition, there is no record of any transactions remotely close to to the amount you mentioned. Lastly, I know our ID checker to be a friendly and courteous young man who has never called anyone "bro". We would love to make it up to you on your next visit if you decide to give us another shot. We would also appreciate you removing this review as we generally enjoy 4 and 5 star ratings. Thank you

Alexandra Yeager: Would be a much better bar if they did not feel the need to play a bass in such a small space, at least four days a week. No one goes there for the base. It is a small bar with relatively good cocktails. But the noise and is unbearable. As a result you can’t Hear yourself think, never mind other people speak. I wish they would play music but no bass. Or even less loud music would be a major help.

Daniel Kirk-Hall: Great atmosphere and great selection of drinks, down side is some bad whitebpeopke dancing 😂 and I'm a white straight male from UK so that must say it all

Dirty Bar: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Harlot DC Lounge & Restaurant: what do users think?


nakea fountaine: BEAUTIFUL PLACE!! I would never recommend! Everything was nasty to me and my friends. None of us enjoyed our food! And the service was terrible! Banana pudding taste like the box and not in a we hooked it up kind of way but straight bland and almost chalky. Steak and eggs was nasty eggs bland, shrimp and grits nasty, bread pudding was like someone messed up baking and just served it eggs Benedict w salmon nasty They didn’t bring condiments and the server would walk away so fast and be gone for so long. AND TO TOP IT OFF MY FRUIT WAS NOT RIPE IT WAS ROTTEN! not to mention I ordered fresh fruit with yogurt and honey, I wasn’t informed when I ordered that they had ran out of yogurt! Oh and my salad didn’t come w the croutons either but I seen them on other salads. Very dissatisfied, and we paid a pretty penny too. I would suggest you all hire more staff on your really busy time of the year or whatever I think if you had more staff a lot of this would’ve been avoided. Also I love my Hispanic people but it’s difficult to get help from them when I can’t communicate w them so the server needed to come back but I couldn’t find her. Very frustrating!

Tikesha Ross: Belly was the best server ever she made our experience so great! The food was good the music was good. Me and my friends really enjoyed ourselves….. Thank you Bellly ❤️❤️
Response: THank you so much! Please come again!

TeQuila Carroll: This place is cute. Like IG worthy but that’s it lol Went here for brunch on Sunday, of course, and it was just OK. No valet parking. They take reservations but I think b/c EVERYBODY has been here it was not packed at all. Suitable for all ages (21-50). The food was subpar. Bottle service was a joke to me. They have hookah, electric, which was very different than your standard coal option. It’s a set menu for brunch. $35 for a appetizer, entree, and dessert. You can order Mimosas by the glass or opt for the “bottle service”(6 mini bottles of champagne) with a complimentary juice. If you want extra juice it’s $10. Don’t let the camera guy fool you. It’s $20 a photo. They do have a DJ but they seemed inexperienced. I’m glad I went b/c it was so hyped. But I’m wouldn’t return.

Briana “Bre” Williams: A very nice and chic lounge. The decor is amazing and the seafood mac n' cheese is delish. Plus, the drinks were on point whenever they arrived. The downside, the wait staff was a little slow. Overall, it was a great time and we were celebrating a birthday so if you're thinking about a birthday gathering this is a great place to start. They also serve smokeless hookah (that's the first time we had heard of it but we liked it) that you have to order from the hookah girl.
Response: Thank you so much for taking your time to write a review and support our business!

Shavon Alicia B: I enjoyed the vibe and atmosphere. The food not so much. Our waiter was super sweet and nice. This more of a vibe, smoke hookah spot and a light meal like wings. Not a really Brunch ,due to the food being just ok.
Response: Thank you Shavon for sharing your expeence with us! We are working hard to get better on every level!Please, tell us what exactly did you order?

Brittani George: I will continue to support this business and make sure to come back. I went here to see my first drag brunch for my bachelorette party (part 2), and the place, food, staff, and performers were all top-notch.
Response: Dear Brittani! Thank you so much! We work hard to get that reaction from our beloved customers! And we are very happy it’s noticeable! Thank you for your support!

Misha Hill: We were there for Frequency Fridays and I'd give the party 4 stars too. Great venue, the downstairs is spacious with good seating for bottle service and plenty of space to dance and mingle. Cheeky decor set the vibe and the bottle girls and bartenders were great. We had an issue with management or the promoter around bottle prices, but they were somewhere accommodating. Just be wary if you book for Frequency Friday on Eventbrite, the bottle prices listed may not be what's available.

Carla Ferguson (Your Bon Viveur): I attended a birthday brunch here. The atmosphere was great, especially with the beautiful decor. Our server was excellent and so attentive to all of our needs, requests, etc. The brunch was excellent, shout out to the chefs. All of the food that we had was great! So, it was all good until....we tried to get drinks from the bar. Service was slow, there were 2 bartenders but 1 was mostly working. The one bartender was also rude as she seemed very overwhelmed. Then it went downhill with the promoters and management....We spent over $1,300 on brunch and hundreds at the bar for additional drinks. We tried to pay for a table for the Birthday Girl, and received incorrect information about what was required. Instead of kindly explaining to us what was required they rudely came over and asked us to get up. Now, I'll be the first to say that if I want to spend any amount of money, I will, and that wasn't a problem, but what I don't condone is rude customer service! It was all good up until that point. Please work on that management because if a promoter is in your establishment they represent you and your establishment. Also if you don't respect your customers through their entire experience then you will eventually continue to loose faithful, paying customers. Sometimes we all need an attitude check. Giving respect, earns respect! Great Food + Atmosphere + Good CUSTOMER SERVICE = Repeat Customers

Ryan Morton: I would not recommend this place. My boyfriend tried to surprise me for my birthday to come here. We were running a little late because we were looking for parking. They did not inform us that we had to be on time or you will lose your reservation. So we lost our reservation after 15 minutes. Once my boyfriend spoke with the people at the door, they told us to go online to request a refund and reschedule. We try to request the refund online, and then received an ignorant response. “Unfortunately you were late, no refunds.” The people that work there in front of the door advised us to go online and request a refund and reschedule. I would never come here, I would never tell my friends to come here, I would never recommend this place. Definitely went somewhere else for my birthday and had a ball. I hope y’all step your customer service game up one day, because if not, y’all would definitely lose business.
Response: Dear Ryan! We are very sorry, that you had a bad experience with your party. We do put our reservation policy and 15 minutes grace period in confirmation email and remainder email. Unfortunately, to be able to accommodate all the following parties on time - we have to stick to our rules and show the same appreciation to all of our guests. We always ask our guests to tell us if they are running late. There are options to do that right from your email with confirmation. All our team sends you Happy Birthday wishes and we are happy you enjoyed your party anyways!

Vocalbeast AJ: It saddens me to have to give this place such a low rating. I’ve passed this place many times on Sunday and wondered how their brunch was. I took a friend for her birthday, and I was very disappointed. Firstly, their website stressed the important of being on-time, however, we waited in line and didn’t get in until after our reservation time. The line was cramped and people also were being allowed to just walk in the front of the line because their party had already been waiting...causing a further delay for us to give our contact into and do the temperature checks. The server was anything but pleasant. She kept forgetting our order, and got an attitude when I ask for a manager considering after well over an hour my food had not arrived. Both dishes were done incorrect, but more importantly my own which came finally well after my friend finished eating hers. I ordered a MW steak which came out WellDone, and fried hard eggs that came out over easy. When the first plate came out...like I said well before the second plate but still about an hour after the order was placed, the server made a guess that it belong to my friend. We order the same thing with a few differences. Here had an item on it that I specifically told the waitress I was allergic to. The manager on duty was polite and attempted his best to resolve it, but unfortunately his efforts feel extremely short. I was totally dissatisfied and turned off by the experience. The food I received came as they were transitioning into their next phase of dinning, clearly exceeding two hours. We stayed to finish our drinks we purchased, paid for the bill, and continued on to another spot nearby so I could eat. I thought about giving them another shot because the decor is amazing and the music was right on time...however this is not a solo or duo type place. You need a group of 4 or more to get seating that won’t be by the bathroom or in an area where staff including management can stand. I dealt with three guys above 6 feet who worked there including security standing right by me so they could watch the game. Clearly violating the six feet rule. I asked if they could move and they ignored me until I asked a staff member to ask them. This caused people to but my table trying to pass them and my person. I love football, but also like being in good health. I can’t recommend this place for food, but it def attracts a nice young adult crowd where the majority are pretty well put together if you’re looking to network.
