My favorite places to party in DC & elsewhere.
1. 9:30 Club – [visit site]
Arguably the best live venue in America.
2. The Black Cat – [visit site]
A rock club with too many DJ nights, some might say…
3. Cafe Saint-Ex – [visit site]
The Kaiserkeller-like basement Gate 54 is one of my favorite places to play and hang out.
4. The Eighteenth Street Lounge – [visit site]
Its a label, its a club, its a label, its a club…
5. Science Club – [visit site]
Swanky, intimate atmosphere and a banging system.
6. The Darkroom – [visit site]
The original home of the Modernist Society. This Chicago bar has it all, roomy banquettes, massive dancefloor space and plenty of good vibes and great smoky atmosphere.
7. Sonotheque – [visit site]
Swank Chicago lounge with top-shelf DJ talent on a nightly basis. Probably one of the best DJ booths I’ve ever been in. I still dream about that Rane mixer with all the rotary knobs.
8. Local 16 – [visit site]
We’ll be back…
9. Wonderland Ballroom – [visit site]
This neighborhood corner bar turns into a sweaty funky mess on weekends.
10. Rock and Roll Hotel – [visit site]
DC’s newest live performance venue.
11. Marvin – [visit site]
DC’s latest and greatest venue, where the Deep Crate Collective holds it down every Friday & Saturday night!
12. Bourbon – [visit site]
Swanky atmosphere, stellar selection of spirits, excellent bistro food. Home of the Modernist Society, DC edition.
