Royal Sands Social Club
Royal Sands brings the South Beach party to Navy Yard. From the fake palm trees, umbrella-covered tables, and downstairs bar built into a pool, you might wish you were bumming it in a swimsuit instead of dressed for the DC weather. Just be clear, you’re coming here to fist pump to EDM in fake Miami, not to eat the salty cubano or mediocre red dragon roll with shrimp tempura. And the bar takes the dance party up a notch on the weekends, when the “Lifeguard on Duty” box turns into a DJ booth. It’s the best party off Half Street during the offseason. Bring your friends and try the cocktails served from the tap. Make sure your “designated boat captain” checks out the ginger mule mocktail.
