Overview

L8 Lounge “is for the upscale and sexy nightclubber in Washington looking for something new” according to the owners who recently opened the new hot spot. It’s an upscale and sexy new club for the sophisticated DC social who is tired of the same old scene.

Decked out in chandeliers and chrome-covered bars, L8 is located on 15th street and is well worth checking out. VIP tables, a full bar, and over 3,000 square feet: the cool atmosphere is perfect for a late night on the town. It’s just a short walk from the K Street corridor and a only few blocks away from sister club Soundcheck.

Overview

If you want to go out and dance, but can’t decide between a large club or a smaller lounge: this is the place to go. Designed to remind club-goers of the golden age of underground dance, Soundcheck has been outfitted with LED walls, lights and lasers that rival Echostage, and the classic, necessary disco balls.

The new space (formerly Lotus) is also, more notably, designed to imitate a recording studio. It has “state-of-the-art d&b audiotechnik Y-series speakers, installed by the same team behind Echostage’s sound system, and [has a] system of honeycombed acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling, and the reinforced cork floor” (Washington Post). So don’t be fooled as you first walk through the ground-level entrance to head downstairs, because you won’t hear the enormous party raging downstairs. And we mean enormous: they’ve already got the likes of Pete Tong, the Stafford Brothers, and Audien on their list of upcoming DJs.
