    Atmosphere!

    Shittiest music venue in D.C. It's usually too crowded, the setup makes it hard to see the stage, and the security staff is often rude. I've been to good shows here, but they'd be better at Black Cat.

    Hilarious excuse for a performance venue...beyond the first 2 rows you will have a great view of the shirts the people in front of you wore that day.

    Above the music venue on the ground floor is a long bar on the top floor, with an excellent selection of craft beer on draft and bottles, so bring your friends who like to dance and drink!

    It was a little intimidating walking into the long all black main stage area but once the show began...It was amazing to be that close to the band!

    The adventurous owners debuted this rooftop deck in mid-November 2011, where nooks and crannies abound for seating next to their many heaters.

    The new roof deck is open, but contains few nude sunbathers, and even less of them are eating waffles- as advertised. Still worth it, though, as the sound guy is cheerful, and the bouncers are polite.

    There's a Tornado foosball table in the game room upstairs. It's actually in pretty decent condition, but needs some actual foosballs. Will probably gift 'em with some on my next visit.
