Why you should visit it
If you want a classic, DC, live music night, this is it. With standing room only, a balcony area, and four bars, 9:30 is a cozy music experience. The place has been around for decades, as have its fans and regular comers and goers. It's a little loud, a little sweaty, and a lot of fun, no matter the show.
Many shows sell out so try to grab tickets ahead of time. Check out The Silhouette bar next door for a pre or post-show drink.
