Fox and Hounds

Edit This

You won't find a stronger drink at a better price, at least not in the trendy DuPont Circle area.  Trio's Fox & Hounds (next to the Trio Restaurant) brings you a glass full of liquor and a small 6 oz. bottle of mixer for a very reasonable $3-$4.  Especially on pleasant evenings, the ample outside seating makes this a perfect place to gather with friends.  This place is hardly a secret, though, so it can get very crowded - best to leave work half an hour early and start here.  The atmosphere is extremely casual and the clientele is a mix of ethnicities and more..

9:30 Club - this place is a palace. Many people, this editor included, consider it to be the best club on the planet. Tons of national alternative acts play at 9:30. For the best view (and to avoid jostling), get there early for a spot on the balcony railing. Metro: U St./Cardozo.

Heaven & Hell

Edit This

Club Heaven & Hell - In the "Heaven" section of this dance club you have different DJ's playing different styles of music each night of the week. Thursday night is probably the most popular with an awesome 80's dance party. "Hell" is a bar that has open mic poetry on Sunday nights. Metro: U St/Cardozo + 92 or 98 Bus. , N.W.

This club is not for the pretentious or those whose aesthetic sensibilities are easily offended.  On 80's night, this is a grungier "Polly Esther's"; only difference is that Heaven & Hell is fun.

Platinum

Edit This

This place is HOT! Its a high-end, high dollar experience on Thurs thru Sat. But worth it! Everyone is dressed to the 9's , and you might spot a celebrity being escorted to the VIP room. (How do you get in? Well the staff walks around looking for hot chicks to bring into the VIP room, of course)

You must pay to get in, they have coat check, and valet. Platinum has a large open dance floor, with two levels of walk ways that wrap-around the room with tables and seating. Anywhere you stand, you can see the mass of people dancing on the main floor. The music more..
