DC9 is as intimate as DC’s live music venues get, and about as divey as well. Not that we’re complaining; there’s always a good edge on in this spot. Up-and-coming local bands, with an emphasis on indie rockers, play most nights of the week; when the live music finishes (often around 11pm) DJs keep the place going until about 3am.

On the 2nd floor, zodiac murals and diner booths set the mellow mood; downstairs you’ll find a narrow shotgun bar that’s often packed wall to wall. There's also a rooftop where folks gather to chill and drink.
