Why locals love it

Somewhere between a dancefloor and a lounge, the Velvet Lounge is a cozy two-floor and garden patio on the U Street Corridor. The Velvet Lounge host an eclectic mix of music--from indie, to alternative/punk, to local DJs spinning in the front of the house, there is a little something for everyone. A general fun-loving, 80s vibe is ever-present.

Why you should visit it

Given the size of this loveable storefront, it has a solid crew of regulars who come for the cheap drinks and the good vibes. Whether you're looking for a nightcap on U Street (especially during the week when things are a bit more low-key), or searching for a more intimate music setting for a small group of comrades, Velvet Lounge is where it's at.

Special tip

There's an ATM in the bar as it is cash only.
