DC9 Nightclub

$$$$(202) 483-5000

Don’t let the “nightclub” part of DC9 scare you off. There isn’t a $20 cover or heels-only rule you have to follow to get in here. What you can expect is live music on the second floor (most nights), a low-key bar for Happy Hour on the first, and a roof with a good view of U Street.

Try Black Jack for a casual pre-going out group dinner on 14th Street. We endorse the bucket of fried chicken.

Bar Pilar

A classic that can be used for dates or heavy drinking. Maybe even at the same time. The food’s great too.

Colada Shop

The food at Colada Shop is just okay, but the space and location make it a good place for a quick meal around U Street.
