Decades DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ultrabar: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

Phantom Lounge: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rosebar Lounge: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Living Room DC: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bliss Nightclub: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DC9 Nightclub: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sheri I.: I was out at a bar on H street... met a dancer. Three weeks later, she invited me to come...I was bored at home and the kids were gone to my ex's. I had taken pole dancing classes before elsewhere. I had such a great time. The girls were friendly and fun, the DJ was awesome and of course my friend made sure I had a great time. The male clientele that came were fine as hell. Will be returning. :)

Malik Small: Should train the bartenders to actually fill the glass, paid $20 for a half of glass Ciroc and cranberry she could have atleast filled my glass to the top with juice, for $20 thats crazy that she didn’t. On other hand love the dancers they get 5 stars from me this rating is just for the bartender

Paul Hair: The girls do not interact with customers. And Assets should not be considered a strip club. When you call it goes to voice mail. No one answers the phone. But the staff is friendly.

Mining Newbie: Stealing from customers! I asked for change for 100 USD and got 90 USD in 1 USD bills. Really? You're not making enough money so you have to steal from customers?
Response: sorry you had a bad experience it’s posted in the club and on every menu. hopefully everything else was to your satisfaction.

chidueme: Great place to enjoy yourself. Went here with my wife and two friends after we had a terrible experience at another club. We should have came here first! Had a great time! Good music great vibes beautiful girls. They have a good selection of drinks and hookah. We'll definitely be back again. I just wish I knew what time they serve food until because the brunch menu on their website looks good

Julian Watson: Got 1500 in 1’s and they shorted each bundle by 10 dollars , you guys either have a thief or don’t tell people that you charge 10 dollars per 100 for change . Light skin female bartender gave me the ones Sunday 2-20 10:30 pm

Lenny Gutkin: Updating my review with an extra star, as I might want to take up the generous offer for a compensated re-visit at some point 😁 Thanks Edit: Some time later based on response from the owner that I didn't notice until tonight. This sounds like a trap, much like your establishment :)
Response: Perfect ! whenever you come in show this to the door guys we will take care of u right away

Burak Sahiner: Ambiance and entertainers definitely the new vision of gentlemen club concept of DC . Bartenders waitresses very pretty and fix good drinks! Collection of dancers just itself make you break the bank. Management team is very helpful and definitely able to give you a deal for bottle services. Security was very helpful and straight forward search made us feel safe .

Saki Sam: Newly renovated! You won’t have a better experience than here. Bartenders were attentive and the DJ definitely played the best jams for the night! When you mix 90s music with dancehall... it’s going to call for a fun night.

Brian Johnson: This establish does not practice proper business acumen. We were charged a fee via CashApp of over $300 that did not include our food or drink. Our server did not give us an indication of when we needed to finish our table service, so we were left with 2/3 of a bottle that was snatched out of our hands. The bouncers were aggressive toward female patrons and when we spoke to management our concerns were not address or amended. Lastly, they were marketed as a black female owned establish that is not. Do not spend your money here.
Response: Hey sorry to hear about your experience! Dc covid restrictions give us strict mandates when to stop the selling and the consumption of alcohol - not following these strict mandates can lead to us being shutdown; nonetheless our waitresses should have related that to you in advance no excuses. Unfortunately bc of the covid restrictions and space limitations, We are table service only a table deposit is for bottles, food is not included. If in any other way you feel that anything has been overcharged please allow me to look into it. Lastly I am a black female who owns this club. You can find me here @herquickpik_ . I’d love to have you come back and comp a bottle due to your previous experience. Thank you for your review.

Oluwaseyi A: We visited Ciel early in the week randomly after work. This is the spot if you’re looking for a bar with city vibes, aesthetics and a rooftop. And our bartender was friendly. However, thats where it stopped for us that night. It could be because it was early in the week, early in the night or because we sat at the bar but the drinks and desserts we ordered were not good at all. We could barely finish our drinks and dessert. The quality was not equivalent to the prices at all. We ended up closing out the tab and heading to another bar. (Located in AC hotel)

Scot Fishman: The vibe is on point, with a rooftop experience nestled at the top of a relatively new hotel in Mount Vernon Triangle. The food is decent, and the drinks are even better. Rumor has it that Erica, one of the bartenders, makes a mean Old Fashioned. 😉
Response: Thank you for your review Scot, hope to see you again soon!

Jessica Forbes: Alissa was the absolute best wait staff I've ever had. She knew that menu like the back of her hand and was able to select drinks for us and nailed it every time. She was attentive but also gave us space. Lastly, she recommended some nice after spots that lived up to her recommendation.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind review, Jessica. We look forward to having you back at Ciel!

chandrima deuri: Great ambience for a date or social night out. Some really interesting items in their drinks menu. I tried the drinks Bloom, Irezumi and Wood from their special cherry blossom festival and Irezumi was my favorite. The costs are a bit at the pricy end and food menu was limited. There might be trouble finding it initially as it is located inside the hotel AC Hotel Marriott.

Jenny Jerome: Great views!!! Great ambience, WAAAAY OVER PRICED and the cocktails were not great.. and that putting it mildly. I ordered a gin&tonic for $36 COMPLETELY flat. Had to send it back 3x times to be remade. Ordered one of their discounted drink, the cup was half full..not impressed. Can't imagine what the food situation looking like, smh
Response: We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the amazing views at Ciel! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your visit with us. Please email us at info@cielsocialclub.com with more details so that we can ensure this doesn't happen again.

Mini Jinx: Had a good night here last night. The scenery was awesome once you get to the penthouse you realize you are in DC but in a completely different state of mind. very peaceful and the people around were having a good time. The drinks were good Food was quite okay it wasn't the best but it wasn't bad either. However wish they provided a bit more than with the price offers I understand they want to offer small plates but if you offer small plates with only three shrimp then the price should not be over $20 when people say prawns it's still shrimp the lamb was really good it was tender I did not care for the particular flavors they chose for the lamb it just gave it a mustard taste to it and then the only other issue I had was with a female waitress The waitresses that I first spoke to were very nice however when I went to be seated in a different area the the new waitress she just seemed very snobbish. Like they did not want to be there.
Response: Hello Mini, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere at Ciel! We sincerely apologize the other aspects of your experience at Ciel did not live up to our standards. Please email us at info@cielsocialclub.com with more details so that we can ensure this doesn't happen again.

M Ramachandran: The view was amazing. However, it wasn't crowded but yet it took FOREVER to get a drink on a slow Wednesday night. The bartenders kept chatting with a couple sitting at the bar instead of serving people. When I did finally get their attention and a drink, my glass had a piece of paper towel glued to the inside. I didn't notice until I got back outside and didn't even bother going back since I didn't want to have to try to get their attention again, it was that bad.
Response: Thank you so much for leaving a review! We would love to hear more details about your experience, if you would please email us at info@cielsocialclub.com so that we can ensure this doesn't happen again.

Tierre Wright: Rooftop was excellent. Drinks and food were great also!!! I will definitely be referring my friends and family!!!
Response: So happy to hear you enjoyed your experience at Ciel! We can't wait to have you back, Tierre!

Ashante Yussuf: The food was absolutely delicious! The ambience was nice. I didn't enjoy the music/DJ. I wanted to hear more of a variety of music rather than same genre played all night. That ruined it for me and my girls.
Response: Thank you for your 5 Star Review Ashante, happy you loved the food and ambiance! You can send any music recommendations you may have to info@cielsocialclub.com so your next visit will be even better.

Rob G: Beautiful location, the bar tender lady was cool and made our drinks proper. My wife said the mojito was strong and delicious. I'd def go back for the ambiance.
Response: Hi Rob, we're glad that you enjoyed your experience at Ciel! We look forward to you coming back and visiting us again soon.

Quadrant Bar & Lounge: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

e sav: We love cloakroom! The option of table and VIP dances are great! We had an amazing time with the entertainers, bar staff, hosts, and management. The dancers are high caliber and the environment is safe and clean. We enjoyed the company and service of many employees along with the AMAZING drinks and food. Highly recommend this spot for a high class experience with top notch service, entertainment, and options.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to lovely review! We can’t wait to impress you again :)

Bentley Randy Mexicanos: I would say that management was professional, polite, and informative. Loved the vibe and atmosphere of the place, bartenders were polite and the decor of this establishment was amazing to look at. I like the fact that each dancer has there own song to dance too, keeps the music culturally diverse. The only thing I would recommend is to have a board schedule, when certain spots start to close up in this establishment. Save the employees time to tell customers and saves the customers time to ask and overall it was an amazing night.
Response: We put a lot of thought into every detail of Cloakroom. We thank you for the recommendation and your genuine appreciation of our venue!

sarah sav: This gentlemen’s club has the most amazing dancers, bar staff, front desk ladies, and management! They were kind and attentive to our group! We had delicious drinks and food! The entertainers were all impressive and amazing company. Servers and bar staff were attentive and knowledgeable! This is a great place to come in and enjoy the company of dancers in the VIP rooms and table dances! Highly Suggest this place!
Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We take pride in our professional and friendly staff. Come again soon!

Ashton Lowe: I came in to ask management about employment and learned that you have to apply online and still ended up having a great time! The girls are beautiful, the drinks were great, the staff was kind, and the kitchen was attentive to my dietary needs. This is easily the most upscale gentleman’s club in town and they really make you feel like royalty. They’re very kind to everyone that walks in the door. I will definitely be back either way because the atmosphere was just lovely.
Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your experience Ashton! Our staff is very professional and are the best at what they do. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your lovely review and see you again soon!

will grimmett: Went here for a bachelors party and was not disappointed. This club is absolutely the cleanest ever. The entertainment is spectacular! If you are looking for a place to go in DC don’t waste your time elsewhere, go here. 100% will be returning next time I’m in town.

Samantha Hawkins: Great Variety of women. The bouncers, bartenders, waitresses & dancers were all super nice. Drinks were expensive but over all good music good dancers and chill environment. Also Leah is super nice and a awesome dancer! Her tricks are so dope!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave your helpful review! You can't miss out on Leah’s stage set and our Funktion One speakers for sure! See you again soon. We appreciate your support during these times.

Ota: I pulled out 100, asked for smaller bills and they gave me 20 less than what I gave them. When confronted all the girls just looked away and said they would never short change anyone here. Pathetic.
Response: Hello Ota. We pride ourselves on having the best of the best on our team, and that is why we have so many regulars and VIPs that have a fantastic relationship with the staff going on many years. Please email info@cloakroomdc.com about your experience as this should never happen at Cloakroom.

Courtney Click: Beautiful place with beautiful women ! The asthmasphere has a sexy vibe and The pork belly tacos are delicious!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest review Courtney! We’re glad our ladies made you feel welcome. See you again soon xx

Daniel: Really beautiful place! I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I kept hearing about this place. The lighting is awesome and the main stage is huge. My first time here and the Happy Hour was the best I have had in a long time. Bartender was very cute, sweet and attentive. I had the chance to talk to a beautiful dancer named Lena, I could not stop laughing with her. She gave me a very enjoyable dance in a private room and still had me chuckling in there. Great experience and need to come back with some buddies next time.
Response: Thank you so much for the review and complimenting the space as well as the staff and entertainer, Lena. We appreciate your business and hope to see you soon!!

Sandra Flores: Improve it by but hiring 18 year Olds. Improve it by not letting them get drunk and coked out in your facility

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Walter Hunt: Friendly staff , great location, very accommodating

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

The Camelot Showbar Strip Club: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flash: what do users think?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

barmini by José Andrés: what do users think?


Mark Blanchard: Cute and private looking place with only a handful of tables. Great decoration. We got the flight of drinks - amazing experience. It's 5 drinks per person, and most of them are prepared table side and involve smoke, liquid nitrogen, and other cool ways of making drinks. We also ordered several appetizers. Great presentation but a little too fancy for my taste.

Natalie Caldwell: We were in DC for the weekend, looking for a place to get drinks before our later dinner reservation. There is a reason barmini has the reputation it does, and our experience was more than we could have hoped for. The attention to detail was both expected and impressive - the care and perfection that went into each crafted concoction was amazing. We described to our waiter what our flavor profiles were and he made us both personalized (and perfect) cocktails. We topped off our before dinner drinks with the brioche. *Chefs kiss* and that butter…I’d eat a whole loaf. Can’t wait for the chance to come back.

Elliott Temkin: Delightful bar experience! They were kind enough to be able to fit us in without a reservation even when they were fully booked on a Saturday night (though they turned many folks after us away, so I wouldn't count on getting in that way). Tried six drinks between us and they were all excellent. Creative. Balanced. Flavorful. They even gave us a sample of the peanut rum they produce in house and it was divine. Had a couple small bites (grilled cheese and wagyu tartare) and they were exceptional too. Well worth a visit!

Kennith “Conley” Coleman: We were able to enjoy the cocktail flight. The experience was amazing and all the cocktails were so delicious. The service was excellent. We also tried the grilled cheese appetizer and it was beyond good.

Triloka Shanbhag: For those of you wondering if the long waitlist and tough-to-get-in reservation system renders this place worth going to or not, I’m here to tell you it is utterly and absolutely worth the wait. The experience of being at Barmini and having their cocktail flight is unparalleled. From the sophisticated palette displayed in the variety of cocktails to the servers that pay you copious amount of attention, every little detail is planes to the tee. At times you may feel you are transported to be amidst a lab experiment but the drinks made at your table using liquid Nitrogen are delicious and a spectacle to watch. We also tried the brioche bun, it absolutely melts in your mouth. Having been to a few other Jose Andrés restaurants in the DC area and always being pleasantly surprised with my experiences, this certainly keeps the streak going. Can’t wait to try Minibar by Jose Andres too.

Justin Searle: If you like cocktails and tasting menus, this is a must hit place! Go for the paired cocktails your first visit, which you won't regret. On your second visit, go for the à la carte menu so you can fully explore their custom cocktail menu.

Diana Brody: Wow, this series of beautiful, fancy little snacks and cocktails (or mocktails) felt like we'd gone to a bewildering show. Each plate was so carefully constructed and delicious. My favorite bites were the wagyu tartare on shiso tempura and the cherry blossom marshmallow, but our group legitimately argued over what the best snack was. The drinks were also incredible- I actually went with mocktails, and holy moly I've never had such amazing drinks. It is expensive, that's not a surprise, but if you want to spend the money on performance-level food and drinks, this place is amazing.

Mukesh Bhakta: Just Wonderful. Vegetarian food paired with drink for me and a la crate for my wife. The dishes can be substituted with non vegetarian. We had 6 small plates and were full by the end of 2 hours. Each item was superb and we did add Australian Truffels to 4 dishes which elevated them substantially. It is definitely worth it for the experience. It is expensive but we enjoy these throes of restaurants very much. Staff was precise and excellent. Cocktails were unique and superb.

DeJuae: Food presentation was some of the best I’ve seen here in DC. It has 2 Michelin Stars. The intimate setting and couches make for a nice date night!

James King: Amazing food. Fantastic service. Highly recommended.Presentation is very elegant. Decor is intimate. Call ahead.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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