Boozy Cocktails and Captivating Beats


Discover DC’s dynamic nightlife

Many of our guests have a hedonistic streak pulsing through their veins, and they’re not afraid to seek out life’s more pleasurable offerings. This resonates with us, as we’re situated in the heart of an exciting capital city where culture thrives and indulgence beckons on every block.

Start the evening on a sweet note with happy hour deals at 14th Street’s Pearl Dive Oyster Palace (Monday means “Oyster Mania” here, too), Ghibellina (try happy hour pizzas plus specials on birre, vini, and cocktails), Masa 14 (where Tuesdays bring happy hour drinks all night, and Latin-Asian small plates shine all week-long), El Centro D.F. (with a lengthy happy hour window and rooftop featuring two open-air bars), or Colada Shop (a Cuban gathering space where “coladas and conversation go hand in hand”).

People-watch or mingle with locals at 14th Street hot spots like Black Jack (showcasing mixed drink gems like the “Mexican Pancake” and “Twisted Sister”), Radiator (at neighboring Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel), DNV Lounge (a hip rooftop oasis atop Kimpton Donovan Hotel), Marvin (a Washington mainstay with a coveted roof deck bar), Barcelona Wine Bar, Provision No. 14 (batch cocktails and shareable plates), and 2 Birds 1 Stone (renowned for its killer cocktail rotation).

Also along 14th Street, enjoy innovative, thought-provoking productions at  Studio Theater  (a four-theatre complex) and live concerts at Black Cat, a welcoming venue that’s been a DC music institution for 20+ years. Over on U Street, get inspired at 9:30 Club (a hub for huge national acts), Lincoln Theater, Howard Theatre, and  U Street Music Hall.

In nearby Dupont Circle, get your dance on at Cafe Citron, a Latin Lounge loved for its happy hour specials and salsa beats, and Decades DC, a four-story retro-themed nightclub celebrating club culture, DJs, and the greatest hits from the '80s until today. And after a night out, feel rejuvenated with fresh “Farm-to-Bottle-to-Fridge” juices served at JRINK.
