Gay in Dupont Circle & Kalorama

Button-down shirts are de rigueur at this gay hangout frequented by the 20- and 30-something, work-hard-and-play-hard set. Some DC residents claim that the crowd here epitomizes the conservative nature of the capital’s gay scene, but even if you love to hate it, as many do, JR’s knows how to rock a happy hour and is teeming more often than not.
