Anderson House

This palatial townhouse on Embassy Row is a showpiece of the collections, interests, and lavish decor of Ambassador Lars Anderson and his heiress wife, Isabel. Housing an exhibit of revolutionary artifacts, the museum also offers some quirkier displays such as murals of Anderson's favorite motorcar tours of the city. But the biggest draw is the decor, which, from the grand ballroom to the original furnishings, gives a clear sense of the life and times of people during this period. Free chamber recitals are performed weekly.

Flash

The brainchild of Dave Rosenberg and Afshin Mottaghi, Flash is a popular nightclub in the neighborhood of Shaw.

Delish tidbits and fabulous drinks are in the offing for those clubbing here. Definitely worth a visit to get a glimpse of DC's nightlife.
