A long-standing dupont
Why locals love it
A staple of the Dupont bar scene for over 30 years, the Madhatter relocated to a more spacious venue several years ago to accommodate the large party crowds that are descend on the bar every weekend. The music ranges from classic American bar tunes to dance music, pumping up the small dance floor that usually gets going around midnight.
Why you should visit it
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, there is no cover charge, and a visit here will give you a taste of the DC bar scene - which is defined by young professionals in their 20s to early 30s who work hard during the week and let loose on the weekends.
