18th Street Lounge


in Dupont Circle & Kalorama

Chandeliers, velvet sofas, antique wallpaper and a ridiculously good-looking, dance-loving crowd adorn this multifloored mansion. The DJs – spinning funk, soul and house – are phenomenal, which is not surprising given Eric Hilton (of Thievery Corporation) is co-owner. The lack of a sign on the door proclaims the club’s exclusivity. No athletic attire or sneakers. Cover charge ranges from $10 to $20.

Choose from five rooms when you get inside, each featuring different beats.
