Cafe Citron: what do users think?


Amanda Blake: Clubby atmosphere with GREAT Latin music, amazing food, killer happy hour deals, and excellent service! The Latin hot dogs and beef arepa are both fantastic and a steal (2 hot dogs for $8 in THIS town??), plus happy hour is every night from 6 to 8. We were there pretty early for just dinner, but it would be an epic dance spot later in the night. 10/10 can't wait to go back!

Ed: Good vibe and good food. Definitely a place I will visit again, staff is friendly and music is great. After 9:30 pm the vibes gets better. Recommended

Jaime D: Good drinks and good music. Vibe was great but food was disgusting. You'll come here to hang out with drinks and do a little dancing with friends/ppl but you won't come here for the food.

Tariro Chimhandamba: If you're new to DC and looking for chilled vibes in the early evening and a party later that night this is definitely the place to go. The bartender are super friendly the drinks are amazing. Just a reall great atmosphere, it caught me off guard but i really enjoyed myself. Good priced food and drink's. Favorite drink was a Moscow Mule

Veronica: This is for the club. The music is great. Apparently though, they will restrict water unless you continue to buy alcohol. I do believe this is ilegal no? Very disappointed that this establishment would withhold water from people who need it. To quote the bartender: " I can't keep feeding you water all night".

Gerald Mansfield: Had a wonderful time here last night celebrating a bachelorette party with a couple of our girlfriends, we had no idea that he shows existed at this location. Now that we have attended the show at this location for the bachelorette party last night and had their food, we will definitely be back. What a hidden gem

sol sol: the food is good and the place very fun.

Jose Martinez: This may be the best nightclub for the Hispanic community! However, they did make numerous discriminatory decisions against Deaf/HH partygoers. I went there many times, but the bartender was very busy and stressed. Too bad! We are using our phone to communicate what kind of drinks we want. That's extremely easy to read to allow them understand, rather than screaming at their ears for their damn drinks. All of a sudden, the woman quickly waved/flipped our phone. She mentioned, "I cannot communicate with you because you cannot hear." Oh, this is 2022! There are many devices and apps to communicate with each other. Let's preparty first, then enter that bar without asking them for a drink. They are extremely rude.

Marilyn Sanin: Amazing night scene, owner is spectacular! Great drinks, music, and lively crowd! They even have a smoking room upstairs! Love this place, fave club in DC

Michael John: This establishment is extremely racist and did not let my friend in because he is asian. DO NOT go here and support this racist bar. Find somewhere else.

Bossa Bistro & Lounge: what do users think?


Comely Weirdo: very dark and dirty place, waited for my food for very long, but they made a cocktail for me as a compensation. glasses and plates not clen. food is very good. improve smell and cleanliness

Sam Pence: Came in for the jazz, decided to get drinks and dinner too. We chose entrees but were told that of the 7 entrees on the menu, only 1 (??) was being served that night. We decided to go with that one. 30 minutes later our waitress comes out to tell us that THAT entree is no longer being served either. Seriously? We then got tapas since by then we were super hungry. One was advertised as a "croquette" but was a simple meatball, the others were doused in salt. No chance I'll be back, but the jazz was nice.

S S: A small space with limited seating. But this club is known for the featured bands, so dancing Salsa and Bachata is what you’re going to get! There is an upstairs which opens around 12 midnight and had a pretty good female DJ which I thought was excellent! She played reggeton and a mix of other music. There is an extension to the back where there is a decent sitting area for a less than noisy experience. Let’s talk about the crowd: a mix of young and mature, mostly young hipsters. I came across several rude patrons, who apparently the phrase excuse me is unknown. The bouncer in front is nice and the bartenders were ok. There was only one who seemed to know what she was doing. $10 cover charge for a subpar experience. The crowd is the reason for -2 stars. I’ve been to better Latin clubs.

Anita Hinnerichs: A great place for authentic Brasilian cuisine, excellent live music and dancing to Latin music salsa, bachatta, merengue, samba and more. Saturday nights are my favorite, but every night has something different and full experience to tantalize all your senses.

Garner Marshall: Great spot to go to. Live music and entertainment. Friendly staff. Parking is crazy but if you're willing to drive around for a few you'll definitely find parking, there is always someone leaving. The food was pretty good, it was suggested to me by the server. I enjoyed this spot.

Disha Vyas: Great ambiance; excellent music. Must visit if you are looking for a fun night weekday or weekend while in DC. We plan to go again.

Alice Ramos: The most fun in town! Connect with your latin roots through the best music and joyful people.

amir naimi: This place has awesome live music on Saturday by the amazingly talented Jorge and his band . Small not crazy busy environment and very enjoyable .If you’re in dc it’s a must see

Carol F: Great music, delicious food, nice patrons. The only thing I don't like is the incense smell.

Rahma Hejja: Cozy place, arts all around you, great atmosphere, had delicious food (shrimp + Salad) for $24 , it was Saturday, they had live music, two bands, once finished around 8:30pm the other started around 10:40pm, Ok I am not bachata or salsa dancer, went there with no partner, but I found a space to dance and have fun with my self, as usual 😍 Ok I don’t drink so I can’t tell you about drinks there, also don’t expect a huge menu of food, what you saw in pictures here you will see around you with people if you go there.

Bravo Bravo: what do users think?


Erik Lima: I went to this establishment on on the morning of 6/13/21. I used to frequent this place a lot in 2016-2018. There was no line, got my ID checked, and gave my $20 cover fee. Upon entering and going down the stairs, it seemed over capacity. You could barely move through the crowd of people. It wasn't even 10 minutes in, and 3 fights had broken out, the fire alarm starts ringing. I tell myself I'm getting out of here, so I go upstairs and I tell the lady, look I just got here and all these things are going on, can I please get my money back? She has the audacity to claim I was there for over 30 minutes and tries to get the security to kick me out. I stay. Within minutes the fire department shows up because of the fire alarm. But then it got me thinking had it been a real fire, it would've been a disaster. Not only were they over capacity, which I believe was just for them to make up for all their losses from covid, but the security was so sparse for them to really secure the area. This combination will eventually lead to a very bad outcome in the future. Moreover, this place should get shut down, and or new safety guidelines/regulations should be set in place and enforced. This is a place I will no longer be setting foot in. Also, the 2nd picture is the people running out when the FD showed up.

Joaquin Perez: The bouncers are rude, especially the woman in the front who can’t take confrontation. They had us waiting for an hour in the rain- just to charge us even though we were in the guest list. Don’t recommend and they are racist as well. They use a lot of racial micro aggressions towards Latinos.

Saul: Literally this place is filled with a bunch of high school kids who dresses in Adidas or Nike track suit and yet they advertise with half naked women.. They’ll overpack this club (good luck during a fire). Bartender charged me for 5 shots when I only ordered 1 lol Big L on this place. Save yourself the headache and go to cafe.

ana montiel: if you are planning to go to this spot WE don"t recommend this spot. its whack like crack, like whitney houston, old and ugly. security think they fbi or cia with low caps jajajajaja. sooo if any one looking to hang out, drink and have fun. This spot is the worst, go up the street.

TMF1 Productions: Bravo! Bravo! is more than just a Late Night Club! It's also an GREAT "Afterwork Spot" with lots of seating space and reasonably priced Happy Hour Food and Drink offerings. There are also LIVE DJs each week on Thursday and Friday with NO COVER CHARGE!!!

Alejandro Andrade: Music was great and the crowd as well. A couple of security people are rude and on power trips, same with the bartenders. I dealt with two male bartenders, once at the entrance was nice, the other one on the way to the bathroom was an a$$hole.

Nancy Montiel: I was in the restroom and security was trynna kick me out for being in the bathroom….. and when we stuck up for ourselves they kicked us out. RUDE ASSSSS SECURITY DONT RECOMMEND

Weiming Huynh: Great $5 happy hour deal from 4-8. It's a great place to chill when there are issues on the Metro. Why not grab a drink and some grub and wait for the crowd to clear up. This place has cheap drinks and the food is good enough. It's all good.

J F: Seems like a fun place, but experience soured by power trip bouncers out front and near the restroom that treat guests rudely. Cafe Citron down the street has friendlier bouncers if you care about that kind of thing.

Brianna Fremont: This place is not it. Waited in a long line for nothing. Their cover charges do not make sense. If you are a guy and you have dress shorts on you will get charged double on top of whatever cover charge they choose. Also, if you are someone who has a vape pen of any sort they will throw it in a covid infested bucket that is sitting on the ground, over flowing of 1,000 other pens but don’t worry you can pick it up when you leave.

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar - Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Diana Hjelmeir: Husband and I love coming here for lunch/brunch on Sundays! If you like high end shopping, there is a shopping center right by this place. The interior is really well done, you feel like you're walked into a Universal Resort or theme park Cuban/Hispanic restaurant! I love seeing the interior whenever we eat here. We've always walked here, so I can't comment about the parking. I also didn't use the bathroom, so I also can't comment. Our waitress Paola was very patient with our children and loved interacting with them, thank you! Our orders were put in quickly and everything was delicious.
Response: WOW, Diana! Thank you for sharing this wonderful review! Here at Cuba Libre Washington DC, we strive to provide our guests with efficient service and mouthwatering dishes. Your praise lets us know we're succeeding! We're so glad you appreciated not only our inviting atmosphere and and courteous staff, but our delicious meals as well. We look forward to hosting you again soon for another memorable experience. Muchas gracias! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Da-Wang Wu: One of my favorite restaurants in DC. The interior design is pretty cool, and the ambience is great. My favorite is the seafood soup, very flavorful with lots of seafood inside. During dinner time (after 4pm), they serve toasted bread with mango butter, super refreshing flavor! Chicken croquette, fried yuca and empanadas are all very good. Guacamole is beautiful decorated but not the best one I’ve ever had. Paella doesn’t feel right, pretty wet. Churro as an ending dessert to be meal is a great option. Reservation might be needed during peak hours.
Response: Thank you for the great review, Da-Wang Wu! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your dining experience at Cuba Libre! We appreciate your praise for our decor and delicious dishes. The soup and empanadas were fantastic choices! Come back soon! Muchas gracias! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

M: Good food.Service took a while but it's ok. Pandemic times calls for extra patience. Once we got a server, we ordered food, it came without a long wait. It was a nice end of day meal after a museum marathon on a Sunday.
Response: We appreciate your feedback, Madelaine. We are thriled that you enjoyed our great feedback, but we are disappointed to hear that our service failed to meet your expectations. We appreciate your understanding regarding the pandemic, and our service. Please reach out to info@cubalibrerestaurant.com so we can learn more about your experience. -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Vikram Seshadri: Loved the music and the ambiance was very lively. Amazing vegetarian and Vegan options. Must try the Mojitos, Yuca fries and the Plantain chips.Had to call ahead and reserve a table and the restaurant was super busy on a weekday but was definitely worth it.
Response: We appreciate this detailed review, Vikram! We are delighted that you had a great time at Cuba Libre Washington DC and loved our music, vibrant ambiance, wide menu variety, and delicious meals. We are always seeking feedback, so we cannot thank you enough for letting us know how we are doing! Come see us again soon for another amazing experience! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Abby Fasehun: Loved the ambiance, felt like I was on the street of Havana. The Empanadas Was really good, forgot to take a photo of it, but overall, food was great. Customer service was top notch. Oh and the music!!! Got me moving the whole time. I’ll be back.
Response: We appreciate this glowing feedback, Bisola! Our team here at Cuba Libre Washington DC is delighted to hear that you loved our authentic Cuban ambiance, delicious food, amazing music, and phenomenal made-from-scratch dishes. This praise means the absolute world to us, and we hope to see you again soon for another excellent time! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Melinda Nguyen: Fantastic place for music, dancing, and drinks. The decor was beautiful and inviting. The space was open and the dance floor was fenced in which was a cool way to separate the space. It's busy and crowded on a Saturday night, but still had space to move around. Drinks were on point. The only downside was the lack of places to hang coats or bags. Coming during the winter, a lot of people struggled to put their things in a safe spot. Dancing with all the stuff is no fun. They should consider a coat check or something, especially in the winter. All in all, great music.. mix of Latin and pop throughout the night. I would definitely go back in the spring or summer.
Response: Thanks for the great review, Melinda! Cuba Libre is happy to hear about your experience! We're glad you enjoyed our ambiance, decor, and delicious drinks! We will make sure to discuss your comments regarding the lack of a coatroom with our staff moving forward. We're excited to welcome you back soon! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Kevin Russell: This is a long review, but please read to the end. Food is really good and the decor is great. On Friday and Saturday nights, not sure the time (I think around 10) the place basically turns into a salsa dance club. Really cool. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me this time was because our service was awful this trip. This is a follow up to that visit. The GM contacted me regarding the service. He took the time to address what happened and has generously offered to invite us back and make it right. This is the type of service restaurants should try to achieve. He takes pride in the customer experience and was very sincere. So I'm changing to 5 stars. I look forward to our next visit. As I said previously, the food is good, actually, great, and just a great place to have fun with your friends. I highly recommend this place. For a great app, try the empanadas. Really tasty. Oh, and I did forget to mention before, I'd suggest reservations on Friday and Saturday as a lot are there to enjoy the food and then dance the night away with some unique drinks they have! I'm confident our next visit will be amazing and I can't wait!!! I'll add photos of the dance floor and the food we choose this time around. We just had our evening here again after the service that was subpar before. This time, there was nothing subpar about our experience. We had a great table, our waiter was very attentive, fun, and made great suggestions for our friend that hadn't been there before. We had chicken and beef empanadas, and pineapple guacamole for apps. Was very good. Our dinner was very good. My friend and I had the plato gaucho mixed grill. My other friend had a neat and rice dish that I forgot to ask the name of. He's a chef at the White House, and he thought everything was excellent! The manager was aware of our previous experience and brought us desserts, and after dinner drinks that was a very nice touch, and we're also very good. The music was really good. The place really filled up with people to dance the night away on the dance floor that starts at 11 until 3 am. Everyone was having a great time. There was a pretty good sized line of people waiting outside to get in to enjoy the dancing. Really a perfect night out. Please go and support this restaurant. I highly doubt you will regret it. And if something isn't right, they will ensure to make it right. A big thank you to the GM, Matthew Fox, the manager Jessica, and our waiter!!!
Response: We sincerely apologize for the service challenges that you encountered, Kevin. We kindly ask that you contact us at info@cubalibrerestaurant.com for further discussion so that we can learn more. -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Austin Graff: A friend of mine's favorite restaurant in the world is Cuba Libre in D.C.'s Chinatown. He loves the drinks, food, atmosphere and music. Having not visited in over a decade, we made a reservation for a Sunday dinner. Here's our experience: 1) Food: The menu is Cuban and has variety with appetizers, mains, desserts and a kid's menu. My Cuban sandwich and shrimp dish were flavorful and my five-year-old daughter even loved the food! 2) Drinks: They have a rum bar and three options for sangria that come by the glass or pitchers. My friend and I split the red sangria. It was strong, but not as sweet as other sangrias. 3) Atmosphere: They try to transport you to Cuba. The restaurant is spacious and even has outdoor seating during the winter. Salsa dancing happens at Ciba Libre too! 4) Service: It was easy to make an online reservation. However, when we dined in the service was average. Our server wasn't very attentive and not very friendly, which is fine since we all have off-days. But our food took a long time to come out. 5) Price: It's pricey, even for D.C. If the food was the best you've had, it would be better, but with good, but not phenomenal food, the prices felt off. This spot isn't a bad option, but I don't join my friend in titling it the best in the world.
Response: Thank you for your detailed feedback and kind words, Austin. We sincerely apologize for the time you waited and service you experienced. Please reach out to us directly at info@cubalibrerestaurant.com so we may further discuss. Thank you. -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Michelle Edgar: We spent years in “little Cuba” in Hialeah FL, so we are pretty well versed in cuban food. This was stellar! Drinks were strong but flavorful. My husband and I got the mixed grill to share and it did not disappoint! If we come back to the dc area this will be our first stop!
Response: Muchas Gracias, Michelle! We are thrilled that our great food and delicious drinks exceeded your expectations. We look forward to hosting you again in the future for another great experience! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Greg Amiker: Beautiful layout (ambience feels like you're in a Cuban garden). The staff and managers were friendly and helpful. The seating is both indoors and outside. After 11pm on Weekends they turn part of the restaurant into a "Hot Cuban Club" with a nice setup of Mambo music, disco lights and DJ. Be aware that you're in downtown DC so expect pricey food and drinks, but the Mojito and other Cuban food is great!
Response: We appreciate your great review, Greg! Our team is so grateful that you took the time to let us know about your recent visit to Cuba Libre Washington DC! Your praise for our ambiance, attentive team, drinks, and made-from-scratch dishes is greatly valued! We hope to see you again soon for another outstanding experience. -Jessica Lopez General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Habana Village: what do users think?


Adam Farrell: We were just walking by, and were immediately enticed by the fun salsa/latin beat, savory aroma and fantastic vibes pouring out of this establishment. When we saw their happy hour selections, we were sold (5-7pm!). Outstanding Piña-Coladas, Mohitos, and Margaritas confirmed our anticipation, delicious and only six bucks. $3 draught beers, more fantastic music and THE BEST fried yucca were also enjoyed. This place is so fun, affordable and the kitchen is one of the most professional in the area. Mario was the most welcoming of bar tenders, as he happily explained the menu, their story and some of the dance classes that are offered (prior to covid). We felt safe being served outside and will be back FOR SURE. Especially for some dance lessons! P.S. for the authentic cuban experience, finish your meal with a shot of aguardiente! Delicious!

Madison Dull: This was a wonderful experience. the food, service, and music was incredible. The food was authentic. The service was perfect they were around the perfect amount. Mario, the server, was very attentive and made wonderful drink and food recemendations. It would be a shame not to dine at this restaurant.

Kezia M: Went here for my friends birthday! They were timely in getting us seated after being a bit late for our reservation. The staff were very nice and sincere. Absolutely loved the food! Took a little bit to come out but it was well worth the wait. Some of the best plantains I’ve ever had! Their rice and beans... chefs kiss. Will definitely return whenever I make my way to DC again!

Ernesto's Coffee Adventures: I love Salsa clubs and I have been to many all over the country but I have to say this one is the worst experience ever!! I went there on a Friday come to find out they charge you $20.00 and I didn't get to dance salsa music. I asked the lady on the third floor if I could see around the rope to see how many people were there and she denied me.. There was only two couples the whole night dancing. The people that work there are also not the nicest. It is pricey but it would be worth it it fulfilled the salsa vibe experience. For a salsa vibe I recommend Café Citron. I have been to many Salsa clubs and this one is the worst.

Jon A: I booked a party of 7 and was well accommodated. The food was very delicious, and the music authentic. Not like chain restaurant food. The hot and spicy wings was an appetizer everyone at the table couldn't get enough of, and every single person enjoyed their meal. Ontop of that the Flan they brought for the birthday Man was among the best Flan I have had.

Tina B.: Great cheap happy hour. Get a mojito! The tostones weren't very flavorful, but the chicken croquettes were delish.

Bryanna Dankers: My boyfriend and i went here a few times and have always had the best service - the food was very good (especially the ceviche) and the mojito’s! The server was very welcoming and a pleasure to speak to! Will always come here if we want Cuban cuisine! :)

MONICA MORLEY: Love the place, the owners are there greeting you and making sure you're having a good time. Music is terrific. Salsa lessons and ladies night are the best

Jocelyn Ponce-Lopez: It was our first time. We loved it. It was a late dinner yesterday Saturday at 10:30 pm. They welcomed us and the manager served us during dinner. We had the guacamole, empanadas and the Cuban sandwich. The sandwich was a real Cuban, like my mother’s. The music was perfect and we had a great time. The place was spotless, everybody wearing masks. I highly recommend this place.

Elizabeth T: This place was a great choice to go to! We ordered the nachos and they were fantastic!! It’s such a nice place to go and enjoy dinner and a drink. I felt right at home and they were very attentive. They sanitize their glasses and I was very happy to see that during this time! Everything was delicious. Make this a place to go and visit soon!

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.

Eighteenth Street Lounge: what do users think?


Love Lacy: Been here several times before. Great to see the transformation into the Bacardi Rum Room. I love the vintage feel of it. Lots of modern hacks but it gives you vibes of a time that has passed.

Le Mont Bennett (Mr Monte): As I topped the stairs I was transported to a magical space, Victorian parlor meets speak easy, with a few sprinkles of rave. The vibe was chill and but energetic, like meeting friends one has not seen in awhile. I met new people and had my soul filled with good music.

Kathryn Wheeler: Love this place. The wood floors vibrate to the music. They have a variety of genres being played live and by DJ simultaneously in different rooms so you can flow from vibe to vibe and feel like you're club crawling without leaving the building. The crowd is late 20s-30s and a bit more sophisticated/professional than other venues in the area, without being pretentious. The drinks aren't cheap, but I feel that the quality of entertainment is worth paying a little extra for. I make it a point to stop in for a little dancing whenever I'm in DC.

Ken's Painting & Handyman Svcs Tyson: Dance music scene at its finest. ESL has one of the best vibes of any venue anywhere. The music talent is fantastic. It's the birthplace of Thievery Corporation after all. House DJs, Trip-Hop, Downtempo, Live Jazz & Latin fusion most notably come to mind. Contributing to the good vibes is that it's a townhouse converted into a lounge/club so there's several different rooms to explore. Another bonus is that there's hardly any douchey-ness to the crowd at all.

Nicolas M. Aiello: The name "lounge" is very misleading for the venue; this place doesn't resemble any lounge I've been to. There's very, very limited seating. And the music played by DJs on every level is 'club-loud' in volume. Don't expect a relaxed environment, or the ability to sit with a drink and have a conversation. All in all, it's still a fun atmosphere. And the live jazz was awesome! It's just not at all what we were expecting, hence 4 instead of 5 stars

Will Sullivan: My favorite spot in DC. I love the different rooms and vibes in each. From live bands, DJ’s, an outdoor bar, to a nice relaxing lounge; this place has it all. I heard the owners are pretty cool too 🤙

Cary Owsley: Sweet night spot in downtown DC. There are four separate dancefloors that all place different music. On the top floor, they had a live jazz band playing as well. Reasonably priced drinks and a coat check as well. Keep in mind there is a $10 cover charge after 11.

Sharde McQueen: Loved it!!! Everything was Fabulous drinks 🍸 people and vibes! The music was definitely a delight all the varieties were amazing 😉 will return! Our server was excellent and the atmosphere couldn’t have been better !

Karol Machacek: Just a great party place...even if it was a bit "smelly" today. Those who'v been here today...know what I am talking about ;-)

Ella T: Incredible bar. Beautiful, smells great, and adorable bartenders. I wish I lived here. You should come and visit for sure

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.

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.

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!

THE SALSA ROOM: what do users think?


Yahanna B: F••k this place. I’ve NEVER been treated so BADLY in my life. Security took my jacket, car/house keys & phone from our reserved table; I begged them to return my things but the security men all treated me very aggressively! They ran away from me & kicked me out club, in the BLISTERING cold!! I couldn’t go home or call the police! I was mortified and crying for help, no one cared to help! After about an hour of walking aimlessly, to find help, and eventually get home (since all of my items were taken by security) a tall heavyset, dark skinned African American security guard drove up to me and dangled my items in front of me, as if I were some sort of criminal. All he had to do was look at my ID but they were treating me like I stole something. I can’t believe this happened to me!! I’ve never been treated so bad in my life.

Munky Luv: Upside: A LOT OF FUN! The person teaching the dances was upbeat, fun, and interacted with everyone! The dancing during and after was non-stop! Everyone was respectful (no one was pushy or handsy), the staff for the most part is attentive. The downside: The staff's uniforms are degrading and distasteful. The way the staff is forced to dressed is disgusting. Security is REALLY aggressive, I've never been yelled at before for waiting to enter a building like I had twice that night (once outside as I waited for the rest of my party to catch up, and again before going inside, waiting for the person with the ticket to give to the 'bouncer'). The drinks are WAY WAY WAY WAY overpriced! (for example: I ordered 2 shots of Tito's vodka - total $38! The price of a handle - A HANDLE of Tito's is $36!) Anyway - would I go again - absolutely! Will I drink - definitely not!

MO. B: I went to the Salsa Club on a Friday and it was a great experience. I got tickets off Eventbrite it was free entry before 11pm. It was a group of 4. When we got in the door and checked in we were offered a table for $40 which was a great price. Once we got in the set up was very airy and they had a very good set up of tables and couches. One thing I liked was at the tables they had electronic menus as well. Once we got our drinks the general manager Damien actually came by and offered us a bigger seating arrangement with no extra charge. Which we greatly appreciated and it was just great customer service after the night we had prior to coming there. The staff was friendly and the people there were great. Everyone just wanted to have a good time everyone was smiling it was just great to be out. The music was great as well. I went to the salsa club when you were located in arlington and I like this set up better. I will definitely be back! Thank you for a great experience.

Sharli Patel: We were treated really well by the bouncers at entry and exit. The instructor was amazing, she built upon each step gradually and it made sense compared to other classes I've taken. The music was super loud but my only negative was we think the alcohol in the bottles is actually cheap, low tier stuff. We both felt really sick the next day after only 2 drinks. They also didn't have limes and offered simple stuff. We'll definitely go again but we'll drink ahead l beforehand.

Niesha Anderson: Came here for the first time for the salsa class. My group and I got a table and I requested a cup of water from the sever. The server returned and said they don’t give cups a water. I was so confused because a place that serves alcohol should never deny a person water. I asked to speak with the manager John and he said if I don’t like it I can leave. I have never in my life experienced that type of treatment. I do not recommend this place. They need management that has more customer service skills.

Cheli: Watch your tabs! I’ve been charged for drinks and tips that I did not authorize. My friends and I are often ignored by the women bartenders who would rather serve men first. Annoying. Getting a table here is a joke too. My party and I never got through even half our bottle because our server was never there! It got to a point that we had to split up and look for her, and then also call the manager. Arrogant people, terrible customer service, and ridiculously overpriced. Go somewhere else.

Baby Moretta Jackson: The place used to be a classy place grown and sexy folks could go have a nice dance. Last night I was disgusted when my waitress walked up to us in a thong body suit and no pants. PUT SOME PANTS ON! I’m never going back to this sleazy trashy whole again.

Jorge Del Carpio Arispe: This place is wack. Won’t give water without paying $6. My friend said a woman in the bathroom wouldn’t give her soap unless she paid her a tip. Are you kidding me? Soap? In a pandemic? What a stain on northern VA this place is. Also, if we came with a partner, let us learn the class with our partner.

Yari: I loved it. Went with my husband (date night) was so much fun. Ladys free till 11. Good security. Learning classes (for fun) on the dance floor with instructor around 9ish was bachata night last night. Everyone was nice. Drinks were a little high (2 drinks for 25$) ....but overall just loved it.... 👍😊

ibattlemike: I paid for reservations. Yet I have to wait in a line that isn't moving...as if we needed to feel special for eventually being allowed in. The assistant manager fixed a small issue we had at first with our reservation. 5 stars overall due to great environment inside.

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

CORTEZ DC: what do users think?


Luviee Lenore': Great View, Service and Food. What more could you ask for. This place is a vibe. If you are looking for something quick and your in the mood for tacos. I recommend this place!
Response: Thank you for your review Luviee! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and views. We hope to see you again soon, and please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything we can do to make your experience even better next time around.

Meg Gargulinski: I’ve been here a few times and have loved it every time! I held a birthday party here. You can reserve half the rooftop for free! It was such a great experience. We loved the drinks and service. It’s usually very empty - not a lot of people there. So if you have a big group, it’s awesome because you can pretty much have the place to yourself! It also has great views of the Monument. I’ve heard the margs are really good too.
Response: Thanks for the feedback Meg- we're so glad to hear you had a great time with us! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Angie A: This place has potential - regardless of reviews, you should definitely check it out. The location and venue itself is really nice and the rooftop is definitely a new hot spot I'll likely stop by often. The tacos were pretty good, but can't say they're worth the price. Margaritas were pretty good as well, but nothing to write home about. They just opened up recently though, so I'm excited to see how they use the constructive criticism to their benefit. Staff was very kind and open to feedback.
Response: Thank you Angie

Brianna Weck: Great spot! We hosted my friend's birthday here and they provided us with the downstairs bar space for no reservation fee or drink minimum! All the party guests raved at how great the spot was and all the employees were champs for helping us out. Definitely will come back when it's warmer to check out the fun rooftop
Response: We enjoyed your party, Brianna, and are so glad that you all had a great time. Thank you for the wonderful review. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Nicolas Durand: Great rooftop, great server, ok mixed drinks

NO COMMITMENTS: The decor was nice and it was clean. The tacos taste great and the price was right. However... there was a hostess that never moved from behind the bar to do anything for our table and it was just us and her in there!! She stayed on her phone the entire night even when we were standing there. The kitchen staff that brought the tacos were far more friendly and helpful. The place was empty and I'm pretty sure that's why.
Response: Shiplife we'd love to have you back - Thank you for your feedback

Michael Siemann: Pretty good spot. The rooftop was amazing at sunset. The fish and cauliflower tacos were solid and had a kick, but probably not worth $5. They had a really cool dining set up where we were easily able to bring a bunch of tables together for our group of 12. I will be coming back!
Response: Thank you Michael

Steven Russo: Really awesome bar! Spent hours on the rooftop of this place. The decor is quite fun. Really enjoyed the fish tacos and the deal that comes with two beers, chips, guac, and salsa! Really personable bartenders. Worth a visit especially on a nice day.
Response: Thank you Steven

Robert Biggs: This place was nice. The deck is on the roof which is a few steps up but there are signs indicating where to go. The drinks were pretty good and service prompt. I went later in the evening and had an awesome view of the bustling neighborhood. I'm giving it 5 stars based on my experience but may update after visiting during the day.
Response: Thank you Robert

Bradley Cook: A nice hidden gem within a busy area. Came here on a friday night with some coworkers expecting the bar to be crowded. When we went there wasn't too many people and we basically had the roof to ourselves. The drink selection was great and the margaritas I had were of good quality. The only thing holding back this place is the food selection which only consisted of empanadas.
Response: Bradley so glad you enjoyed yourself and had a great time with your coworkers - thanks for the warm review !

La Cosecha: what do users think?


Millie Kwan: This is a great space for Latinx businesses such as home goods boutiques, wine/wine bar and gourmet grocery, food stands and restaurants. There is an upstairs lounge as well as outdoor seating. Even the indoor space is a large open space and it is not crowded like Union Market making it easier to navigate during the pandemic. Would have liked to try more than one of the food stands, but well go back again. Beautiful space and do highly recommend.

Hector Mejia: Is impressive the change in this area " florida ave ' everything is clean soooo " la cosecha " is a restaurant in the new Florida ave dc i was there is beautiful place for sharing time with family you can find Japanese,Mexican.,peruvian And more class of food really impressed with this place !! Also you can buy things for your home too I recommend 100%!!

Tania Abraham: What an amazing experience, space and open market/food court. La Cosecha is the perfect space for doing some window shopping, actual shopping, grab a drink, and/or grab a meal. I was genuinely spoiled for choice with all the great options… So I sampled a bit of everything from the various restaurants! Nothing was a disappointment & I ended it with a Cafe Con Leche Paleta from Jarabe Gourmet Pops!!!

Nate B: This is a nice place. There are several good places to get food or drinks. It is very clean and people are friendly. I would definitely recommend this place.

John Huegel: La Cosecha is an urban destination and attracts a lot of young adults as well as some older folks like me. A dozen or so proprietors sell trendy food and drink and a few other things. My wife and I were attracted by the Argentine Tango group that holds an introduction to Tango lesson and a Practica on the loft level for experienced dancers on the fourth Sunday of each month. A great place to dance on a Sunday afternoon. We travelled there from Delaware just for that.

Daisy Gutierrez: The new drinks inspired by Selena songs are amazing!

KIMBERLY THOMAS: Always a great time and great food! Definitely recommend. The food and drinks are perfect. The service is even better. Ask for Maria! She’ll take good care of you!

Laura Garnett: This is my favorite market in the whole of DC. You can find the best Latin American food, wine, and artisan shops. I purchased this new ear cuff here, made by indigenous women in Colombia. We need more of these personal, diverse, and authentic cultural venues, especially in the "click-and-buy" world we live in.

K A: I found this hidden gem in D.C and I couldn’t help but check it out and I didn’t regret it. It’s filled with so much culture and art along side nice restaurants, a wine shop, a coffee shop(Unido) to mention a few. I particularly loved checking Nova Bossa out. Such a beautiful shop with quality items. First time here and I would definitely revisit to try out some great delicacies. I highly recommend this contemporary market to all art and food lovers and also it’s a must visit to all locals and tourists. Good Service✅ Courteous Staff✅ Lovely Ambiance ✅ Parking Garage ✅ ♿️Wheelchair Accessible Entrance✅ ♿️Wheelchair Accessible Restroom✅ 🚻Restroom

Paul Wright: Went back and discovered Destino, a Mexican restaurant. It's AMAZING!!! Service is fantastic, food was en point and atmosphere was both elegant and charming. Love this location!

Toro Toro: what do users think?


Gina S: Stopped in for Happy Hour and was impressed with the quality, freshness, taste and presentation of the menu items ordered. Don't expect larger portions, but expect a good experience. Annnnnd, the mojitos were amazing.

Wisteria McNeil: Really great music. However, they said it was Colombian night, but I heard more bad bunny than I did Joe Arroyo. Not much cumbia either. Still great music and a fun time. Drinks are expensive, but it's downtown DC

Dondré: Solid brunch spot. They do offer a bottomless brunch special. The food was really good. Our waiter was nice, this place gets packed for brunch, they do have lots of seating though. It's well decorated and gives off very chill vibes.

Pascal Johnstone: We went to Toro Toro after our plans for dinner at another restaurant fell through, and we could not have been more impressed! Our starter, the guacamole served with tuna tartare, was unexpectedly satisfying and proved a good prelude to the main meal consisting of salmon and the signature burger. Both were excellent, and the burger in particular was reasonably priced for a sizeable portion. The salmon was also delicious. After our meal, the manager offered us free dessert as well as coupons for two free drinks and an appetiser at our next visit. We will definitely be back the next time we visit DC!

Zerena Volcy: Service was a little slow at first but we came at a busy time however the food (unlimited brunch service) was very good. I would recommend it to my friends. The host Pandu provided excellent service to guest and ourselves he was taking responsibilities that were not in his host job description. He is great every restaurant needs his energy and attitude.

The Social Diplomat: Toro Toro is a good spot for Latin Night on a Friday night. The crowd is balanced, the drinks are good, the DJ's are on point. Get here early, because the dance floor get's packed. For guys not used to dancing Latin music, take a class or you will suffer rejection by not knowing how to dance. Go to Bachata Brunch at Public Bar live for 3 weeks of Sunday lessons to build up confidence. The girl to guy ratio is decent except from Dec.-Feb, the crowd slows down. For my reviews follow on IG: _The.Social.Diplomat

Chela Williams: I visited this establishment for winter restaurant week in 2016. When we arrived business was kind of slow. Our waiter was nice and accommodating. Very informative with explaining the dishes to me and my mother. I'm used to tapa style restaurants.....She isn't. The food was different but very good! She usually doesn't be venture out so if she likes it you know it was good. She even brought it up about two weeks ago asking about the name. I believe I was full when I left. It's expensive but the food it worth it.

Hilda Kroll: A good place for a reasonably priced lunch. The first time I ate here there was a fabulous buffet. The last time, the special was unlimited tapas. Now the $20 lunch special includes one antojito and one salad or sandwich. I chose the braised short rib arepa and the Cubano sandwich. Located a couple of blocks from the National Museum for Women in the Arts and close to Metro Center, it's worth a visit.

Ap Queen: 4-11-19 My Best Friend and I Met up for Lunch and checked out Toro Toro. We ordered the Appetizers of both Empanadas De choclo & De Lomo Saltado, and the Tempura Mahi Mahi Tacos. As The Main Dishes we ordered the Pan Seared Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Arroz Chaufa (Fried rice with steak, chicken, chorizo) and Chili-Lime & Cotija French Fries. Everything was so Pretty displayed while being sat carefully on the table definitely ate with our eyes and amazed even from far away you noticed the colors. The Flavors were all in a flavor haven of their own no seasoning at all was needed. Not too salty or under salted, listen honeyyyy!!! restaurants can definitely take cue from Toro Toro with having the just right amount of seasonings it was so balanced to perfection. The Salmon was so tender my best friend even questioned what she was doing wrong when she makes salmon at home because it was so moist but still crisp and flakey. While everything was great !! Those Mahi Mahi Tacos with the Chipotle-Paprika Aoli was to Die for you listening Foodie ppl. The fish was meaty, the crisp from the tempura was still crisp even after sitting for a little bit. The Chipotle-Paprika Aoli was EVERYTHING!!! just enough kick =) such a excellent choice. If I was dying and I had to choose a last meal just give me a huge plate of those!! And a cherry coke extra cherries and I'd die Happy as hell lol. My Waitress was awesome she made me a sprite mixed with lemonade then we joked about adding Vodka tho since she seen my card beforehand. She kept my glass refilled, constantly checking the table to make sure we were Good. Lastly for dessert we had the La Bomba experience SoOo cool to watch!! Churros with chocolate soOo super soft and tres le ches everything split up. It was my Best friends first time at Toro Toro and she really enjoyed it and the Food Options fit her no meat palette so I was glad she was able to experience The Toro Toro way!! Lol ... We even set a plan to get together 2 times a month so we definitely will be back!!! Especially Meeee for those Mahi Mahi Tacos!! on the way out I told the manager don't ever get rid of those tacos no matter what. So THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCE.

Janay W: Cute place! Shout out to our server Edgar and bartender bae Matt at the bar! It was super busy as we went for Saturday brunch but the service and food was great! The drinks were amazing!! Bathrooms were cute and clean. The only meh experience was a very tall employee who dismissed me when I asked him to take a picture... Despite that Edgar was super attentive and supportive as was Matt and the other wait staff. Will visit again for sure!

Gazuza Lounge: what do users think?


Jasmine Rodriguez: Good hookah, sushi, and drinks. I did find it strange that they requested to hold a card even when I offered to pay in cash. Otherwise, the waitress was pleasant and attentive. It wasn’t very crowded for a Friday night.

Mouhamadou Seye: Been coming to this place for years now and it never disappoints. Very nice and professional staff. The decoration and the vibe is just what you need to relax and be surrounded by beautiful people. And oh, if you love sushi, definitely grab some while enjoying your hookah, you will come back for it lol.

Brandon Richardson: Small space. Sushi is very very mediocre. It's solid if you like hookah. The music was on loop but not that bad. Sports games playing in the background.

Patricia D.: I compare Gazuza to the hookah spots on 9th and U because it usually has a dj and attracts a black 25-40 y/o crowd. Unlike most of the U st hookah lounges, Gazuza is not black owned. When the place is empty, the service is fine, when it gets busy, the service sucks and suddenly they make up arbitrary rules to take advantage of their urban customers. Recently, I arrived and stood near the front for seating for awhile. I asked a waitress where we could sit. She told me anywhere that was open. We found an open table. But, after being ignored for 30 min, I was told by a different waitress that I was sitting in her vip section and had to get up or spend $500 minimum at a table that had no reserved sign and could barely fit two people. I asked to speak to a manager and he was just as rude and dismissive. We left and won’t return. Note: even though 99% of its clientele is black, I’ve never seen a black employee here. There are lesser known hookah spots besides this and u street that are cleaner, more attentive, and have better hookah without the unexpected arbitrary extranets and rude service that you get here.

R J: I've been in all the spots all over DC. This ain't it. My first and last time seeing this place. The hooka guy was cool but that's it, the hooka guy earned the one star I gave.

JAIRON LOPEZ: Very nice staff friendly and polite. Food was amazing and the ambiance is so relaxing. Hookahs are sensationals. I felt very comfortable in this place. Ill come back again for sure!
Response: Thank you, we appreciate you and hope to see you very soon

Ryan McGorty: Hookah and sushi? An interesting combo, right? If you like both, you’ve met your match. If you only like either sushi or hookah, it’s a great happy hour spot. Gazuza Lounge is located only a few minutes away from the Dupont Circle red line metro stop and offers some great happy hour specials. Monday through Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. you can get some cheap beer, wine, mixed drinks, and of course, the highlights - $5 classic rolls, $8 specialty rolls, and $18 Hookah. The sushi is not going to be the best you’ve ever had, but for $5 per classic roll, it’s very hard to beat. Gazuza Lounge is located on the second floor and definitely has a relaxing, chill lounge vibe. Usually, it’s not very crowded for happy hour, so you can enjoy your conversation with your friends, or just relax and eat as much sushi as you can. The people I came with who like hookah, said they offer a wide selection of good flavors. They have a bunch of TVs running sports matches, if you’re in the mood for that. Staff members are attentive, friendly, and polite – they’ll even remind you when happy hour is nearing its end.

Hitesh Gupta: We were deciding on a place to chill on a Sunday night (long weekend) but we came across this place. It's a perfect place for some decent sushi, hookah, drinks and some dancing and yes it's true. It's amazing, we asked on put on the NBA playoffs game and they gladly did. They have two spaces, one on the outside and one inside with a dance floor. The food is pretty good, hookah is good, drinks were good. There was a salsa dancing event thingy going on as well. The servers are good and accommodating.

Virginia dos Santos: Music was good.They have beer on the menu but it was unavailable. unnecessarily dark in there.

Bryant Best: One of my favorite lounges in DC! Chill vibes, cool clientele, AMAZING sushi and hookah...and the prices can't be beat! One of the District's gems! 👌

Jake Rugemer: The line dancing lessons and the live bands and dances every weekend are so much fun. Everyone is super friendly and happy to help teach you the steps if your unsure. I'm so glad this place survived the pandemic and wish I had found them sooner!

Tim T: This is the biggest/best place left in the DC area for western dancing since Nick's in Alexandria closed down. It's a rough drive to get there from Virginia, but mostly worth it. The Friday night bands are horrible to try and dance to, but it's at least something if you have no other choice. They also have an outdoor stage for other kinds of music which is pretty cool. The people are pretty friendly and staff is awesome. Wish I could go more often.

zaityjaah mackey: I’ve never experienced racism before until tonight, my friend got dragged out of the bar for asking a bartender a question as to why he couldn’t sit at the bar with his girlfriend and her friends, they shoved him and got in his face while he was leaving and it was uncalled for.

Steven Harrah: Greatly enjoyed seeing LIVE music including significant Nashville artists like Ian Flanagan (featuring S. Chris Harrah, Mike Van Tine, and Kayleigh Moyer)

Jack Taylor: 6-10-22 The new management is putting some money into this place and it's once again becoming the best country bar in the Baltimore/Washington area. I'm updating my post from 3 years ago; Since my review there is new ownership and it's no longer the same place no fun for me I don't go there anymore. This is my favorite place to go dancing. Largest dance floor around. My favorite day to go is Wednesday's. Free line dancing lessons till 9 and ladies drink all night for one price. I usually get there before 7 to take advantage of the half price beer specials and no cover. Warning they don't serve IPAs or lattes here just fun.

Annastacia Moore: I love everything about this place. They have pool tables plenty of space and offer dinner and line dancing in the evening.

Helene Waters: We travelled from Virginia to visit this place after our beloved Nick's nightclub closed and weren't disappointed. It's an amazing set up with line dancing inside and a beachy vibe outside, plus not to mention the violent mechanical bull! The live band, It's All Good, were amazing, we would have paid good money to see them in a concert! We'll be back :-)

Bar Bley: Food was delicious, the Friday night dj was on point he played everything I wish I knew his name I would shout him out, atmosphere was a whole vibe for friends getting together for a night out, riding the bull was so much fun, I don't go out much these days but this place would be one of my first options.

Deborah Sellers: Super fun environment. The line dancing & country feel in the main bar, live rock music & DJ dancing in the outdoor bar. Snake bites were delish! The drinks were light, but still a good time! Friendly staff! On a COVID note- they’re strict w/ masks. Up over the nose & on any time you’re standing/walking around. They’re only allowed off when seated at a table. Felt so nice to be at a bar that FELT like a bar, in spite of COVID. Going again tonight to learn some line dances!

Kimberly Kelly: I have only been here a few times and the power went out on two different visits. The band couldn’t even perform. I also paid a cover charge.

Alexis Farrar: The drinks was great we got passion Margarita drinks and Parton shots. We ordered the taco bowls and lamb tacos it was great as well haven’t had tacos that great in a while. The whole atmosphere was a vibe the decorations was fire we will definitely go back just make sure you make reservations.
Response: Thanks for the great review!

Patrick Young: Margaritas at happy hour were tasty, cocktails were tasty, and the decor was beautiful, but the rooftop had a plastic shield that blocked our view. We went here since we were looking for a rooftop bar experience, but it takes away from the experience if we can’t see out. The drinks were pretty pricey too even at happy hour

Tenny Kristiana: Love this place. Owner is kind and staff also really nice. Came here a bit late and it was full. We ordered nachos and it was good, love it. Also love their charcoal shot 😆

Moira Leonard: We sat at the bar in a gorgeous covered outdoor space. Our bartender Lina was fantastic and made us so beautiful and delicious drinks. I had the gin drink in the menu with rose and mint syrup among other things and my girlfriend had some special frozen concoction. Lina made some great recommendations and our tacos were fantastic. The carnitas with pineapple slaw was so yummy, but the SHOWSTOPPER was the handmade corn tortillas. They were so soft and held together so well. They were hands down the best tortillas I’ve ever had. If I’m ever back in DC I’m coming for the tacos and the cocktails.

Bobbi DeAnda: This place is a whole vibe!!! Such a beautiful setting! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because about 3/4 of the drink menu was unavailable (and the drinks we got were tasty but weak). Tacos were yummy - and it was taco Tuesday. They messed up my order but brought a replacement quickly. The only other things, seating is not comfortable and it’s not accessible at all - no elevator and large staircase to get there. Other than those things, loved this place! Great service, cool vibe, and great selfie backdrops, haha! :)

Nettie Jackson: Not from DC, so the crowded places still throw me off haha but besides that this place was really cute. You have to make reservations or you will be standing in a line for most the night. It's 20$ fee to book reservations I added a note it was my birthday and they gave us seats but the open window porch . They were nice service. We got the birria empanadas i apologize i only have a video of the food but it was plentiful and 8/10 . I was surprised how affordable the prices were ! It ranged from 7 to 15 dollars. Our server and other staff were very friendly and even with all dc choas rhat it is they were also attentive too! Eventually the window had to be closed due to noise. They play loud music 🎶 but they turned the ac on and the night continued. I also believe there is a 2hr max limit at the table but we had enough time to eat and have some drinks before heading out. I found this place from tiktok. I went on a Saturday night at 1030pm reservation and it was packed

Niki Handy: A complete vibe! Cinco de Mayo lunch was lively with the mariachi band. The margaritas were on point and the service was quick and friendly. Downside- the corn tortillas didn't hold up well with the moisture from the pico or salsa. The three of us all ordered tacos and all had the same issue. I had the shrimp, chicken and fried avocado tacos. Of the three the fried avocado was my favorite. The mango margarita was refreshing.

Johnleia Lambert: El Techo is a vibe! The decor is dreamy, whimsical and simply beautiful. The avocado taco was a surprise treat on the menu. The texture was perfect and the ingredients paired well. The Imperio cocktail was refreshing and perfectly made. I recommend the birria tacos if you love lamb as much as I do. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection. Definitely go to El Techo if you are in the Shaw area.
Response: Thanks for the great review and please tell your friends!

Yonykis Noel: This place was slightly difficult to find. Had it not been for the gentleman who greeted me as I walked past the front, I would have walked past it. FYI it's up the stairs! Tacos are sold individually and no bundle i.e, 3 for a certain price. So be prepared to shell out at least 15$ for 3 tacos. They are generous with all ingredients.

Aaron Krahling: Great Atmosphere, Excellent Menu, Highly Reccomended My teenage daughter and I met a friend at El Techo last night and it was a very pleasant experience. We were greeted and seated promptly at our reservation time. The decor was simple but unique and pretty cool looking. The noise levels were low to moderate so conversation wasn’t difficult, which is my biggest pet peeve when dining. The wait staff was quick to greet us at the table and helped us with any questions we had about different dishes. At our friend’s recommendation, we ordered one of each of their fresh juices followed by their cleanse juice. These beverages were unique in their blends of (not all in one) beets, tangerine, lemon, ginger, apple juice, pear juice and several others that I’m not recalling at this time. When the server brought the juices, they also brought our order of chips/salsa/queso/guacamole. The guacamole was fresh made in house and spiced appropriately while the queso and salsa were far above average. After talking to the server for a while and asking more questions than most would tolerate, we ended up ordering 2 of the 3-taco trays. The juices kind of unexpectedly filled us up so we were light on the meal. The tacos we ordered were Carne Asada, Fried Avocado and Shrimp. They came served on corn tortillas, which weren’t too hard or soft, topped with lettuce, tomato (might have been pico) and onions and then of course whatever the main topping was. They were the perfect temperature and definitely fit in my top 5 best tacos I’ve had, which might sound sub par, but I’ve had hundreds at restaurants all over the country. Since we filled up on juices and tacos, there was no room for dessert but that’s okay. It gives me something to look forward to the next time around. Overall, I give this place a 9/10……………. because there’s no such thing as perfect.

George M Cruz, Sr: I’ve only been here once, last month right before Valentine’s Day, and I had a blast! Great music! Great environment! Great dance lessons! It was moderately busy, but I found this to be a plus. Call me boring, but I’m not a huge fan of waiting in long lines for a drink, not having anywhere to sit, or not having any room on the dance floor to show your stuff! 😃 As a local, small business owner, I support any business who tries to grow and improve! I’m definitely going back! Hope to see you there!

Conner Anderson: My girlfriend wants to learn salsa and we heard about this new club. We checked it out on Sat, it was very cool. Chill mature crowd. Instructors were patient to the newbies. Food menu is very limited but we ordered some tacos & wings and it was delicious. Good selection of draft beer. Checked out past reviews right before writing this and man glad I did. We may not have gone. Don't understand why some people don't support local businesses. Some reviews are just plain wrong. It was super crowded, at least on this night. I'd give them 5 stars but would like more selection of food.
Response: Thank you Conner! Hope to see you back soon! We’ll be expanding our menu soon.

Michael Morris: this facility a first nice impression ,but as night went on i felt the people dancing did not comply with covid-19 regulations. did not wear mask and no ventilation . for they allow hookah. the smell made me ill. was not aware they allowed this. although the food was not to bad and the bartender was very nice

Janet Huang: I've been several times and I LOVE IT! I use to be a regular when it was Iris Lounge and it was fun but only because they had pool tables. The layout now is modern industrial and wide open. The music is fantastic and I can't wait till they have another 80's night. Palladium - please make Friday's 80's!!!. Also Palladium - don't listen to all bad reviews. Do what you're doing you have a great venue and idea. Iris closed because these same people just complain and complain and never spent money. You guys rock!!
Response: Hi Janet, thank you! We promise the 80’s night is coming soon!

StarSurfer Night Sky: I have nothing good to say about this place. They made us wait outside in the cold. My guess is that they were pretending it was crowded as there weren’t that many people inside. They took away tables and barstools. Terrible sound system. Drinks were served in plastic cups. My margarita was a 6 Oz glass full of ice and I paid 9 dollars. No toilet paper in the girls bathroom. A friend was charged different prices for a Corona unless the difference in price was because he asked for a glass of water with his first order. I think the setup is more suitable for a yoga , Pilates , gym or CrossFit. Looks more like a warehouse with a bar. I did not eat there. Some of my friends liked the food. They claimed to be sold out but I did not see a big crowd. Needing a ticket to get in and then pretending to be sold out to later advertise tickets available for $20 sounds pretentious.

Charles Wilkinson: The Palladium is a fun, happening dance club that’s for everyone. I’ve been there a couple times and had a BLAST. The waiters are very good and it has a great vibe. It’s above place but still has an intimate feel. They have a nice Sunday brunch with free salsa and bachata lessons. Pretty cool idea!
Response: Thanks for the nice comment Charles. Hope to have you back soon!

Rob: We went on a '90s music night. The music and band were great but hardly anybody was there on a Saturday night and we were there from 10pm till closing. There were twenty people in the whole place on a Saturday night which we thought was really strange for a nightclub. On top of that $9-12 bottled beers before tip just made the whole experience pretty ridiculous. Obviously this place is trying really hard to be something they are not. A pint of beer in central London costs approx. $5-7!!!
Response: Hmmm...never had a 90’s event here on a sat night. Sat nights are latin nights and it’s always very busy. Also our bottled beers are $6 & $7. The prices are posted on the bar. Sorry.

Melissa Daley: Celebrated my friends birthday here last Saturday. The staff was friendly and accommodating to our large group. If you're not into latin music then this isn't your cup of tea. We however had a blast and danced the whole night! I see all the trolls hating but don't believe it. The club is huge and it was packed. We'll be back for sure.
Response: Hi Melissa, glad you guys had a great time! Thank you for your nice comments!

Chris Cooper: They said the doors opened at 7:00. Some people paid $20 for tickets. At 8:30 they kept making people wait. They would mutter something about the fire marshal. When they finally let you in (a coupe at a time,) you expect to see a huge crowd. But, there are only coupe dozen people in a huge place that holds hundreds. And, there no sign of the band that was to stast almost an hour ago. And, they continue to make people stand in the cold. I think they think is good for their image. Everyone is ticked.😳🔥
Response: Hi Chris, sorry you waited in line so long that night. As we opened the Fire Marshall stopped by. We held the line till he verified our permits and licenses. He also decided to check on the exits, fire sprinkler system, kitchen hood suppression systems and all storage spaces. When opened the doors again the line was around the corner. We tried to get everyone in as quickly as possible but we had to keep with security protocols of checking IDs, bags and other items people brought in. We certainly had no intention of making our guests wait in the cold outside on purpose. Thank you for taking time to comment on your experience and we hope to learn from this and do a better job in he future.

Keva P: It's a large venue. The food was good especially for late night goodies. Mr. Mambo's Social hosts their salsa and bachata night on the first, third, and fifth Saturday as well as every Tuesday. They have classes starting at 8 pm and dancing starts at 10 pm. Its $15 for lessons and dancing and $12 after 10 pm. There are lots of seats to rest and ypu'll need it. Because you can dance to your hearts desire until 2 am! There's free parking too.
Response: Thanks for the nice review Keva!

Public Bar Live: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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