Top Rated Nightlife in Washington DC

Search Radius (Miles)
9:30 Club

This club somewhat resembles Dr. Frankenfurter's laboratory in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The large, open space features a bar and a chest-high stage with a rather impressive sound and lighting system. Four bars are located throughout the venue, serving premium draft and bottle beers. Light snacks are also available when those late night hunger pangs attack with items like sandwiches, wraps, paninis, sweets and other options.

The Saloon

This European-style beer hall is the newest addition from the owners of Saloun in Georgetown. The Saloon has become a popular hangout for locals and tourists. The downstairs is built like a beer hall, with wooden tables, chairs and booths. Upstairs is more spacious, with a loft for those who like to drink from a high perch. The crowd comes for the full selection of excellent Belgian beers.

Blues Alley

This is perhaps the best-known venue in Washington for jazz and blues performances. The club is tucked away in lower Georgetown, near the C&O Canal. A number of national acts can be seen here, and the atmosphere is sleek and sophisticated. The place bills itself as a "Jazz Supper Club," and the food is almost as good as the music, much of it is Creole-inspired. On most nights, artists perform two sets, but occasionally a third set is added on the weekend. The cover charge changes each night.

People look forward to their dance parties so that they can come here in large groups and party the night away.
