Though it helps to be a member, this club can be found through Cady’s Alley in Georgetown and down the stairs. Created in a European-style, you’ll find an upscale lounge with interesting decor and even more interesting people. Non-members are welcome, though dress is smart casual and you may have a wait and entrance fee, depending on the evening.

A very Russian restaurant featuring infused vodka, ambiance for days, and – for better or worse – live accordion playing.

Every year, professional “speed runners” collect in Northern Virginia to compete in playing or hacking video games as fast as possible while raising millions for charity. All events are streamed live. Perhaps miraculously, sex scandals abound.

The Mansion on O Street

Washington DC    $100-200    https://www.omansion.com

Submitted By: Kirk

Overwhelmingly, ostentatiously, and messily designed in every way, this place takes gaudy Americana to a degree never before seen by human eyes. Themed rooms and secret passages abound. The dining scene here is a lot older, so it’s worth a look, but maybe not a night.

SAX

An insanely ornate French lounge with occasional burlesque shows. The food and drink here aren’t worth the effort, but the ambiance is. The usual crowd here is unbearable, so try to go on a slow night.
