    Grab a burger and a show (two birds, one stone) at DC9 with one of the bar’s burgers such as “The Eloise;” it's decked out with caramelized onions, a Parmesan crisp, and porcini ketchup. Read more

    Really tiny but the folks are super nice! Be careful if you're going to an early concert: they like to shuffle people along for the next event and hard to just chat afterwards.

    Great sweaty dance venue. Roof deck is a nice addition. Come for Peach Pit. One day the floor will cave in.

    Get a table near the fireplace. My identical twin sister sweeps the chimney so I can guarantee you'll enjoy a great meal without the smell of silly soot.

    Terrible weather out but still feeling like being semi-outdoors? DC9's new and improve rooftop is covered and heated. Real thermostat heaters no less, not that gas powered crap.
