Located close to the Farragut North metro and just outside of Dupont Circle, Mari Vanna is an essential stop for anyone in the DC area. Serving up delicious authentic Russian homestyle cuisine during the day and supplying D.C. with an impressive selection of over 70 house-infused vodka’s by night, Mari Vanna boasts an ambient atmosphere that gives its patrons an eclectic “tea party-meets-grandma’s-house” vibe. The D.C. location is its biggest one yet, and for good reason – this place has a lot to offer.
If you like dancing, good music, great food, and vodka that you don’t need a chaser for, then I would say Mari Vanna is the place for you. The cocktail lounge upstairs is perfect for a night out with friends. It’s got an intimate atmosphere but you’ll never feel like you’re being overcrowded. The crowd stays pretty steady all night, usually a mix of DC natives, tourists, and people from all around the world. Bottle service is available upon request. I would definitely recommend ordering some of their house-infused vodka if you have a group of people with you. Another perk of Mari Vanna is the keys. You can ask the bartender upstairs for a key, which you’ll need on most Monday nights to get in (or be with someone who has one). Bottom line: whether you decide to start or end your night here, going to Mari Vanna is always a good idea.

Kabin’s decor has a modern, chic, upscale ski-lodge look to it that’s complete with plasma TVs with images of burning logs. The floors are all hardwood and there’s this really interesting black reflective structure coming out of the ceiling that resembles an ice crystal.If you look at it you can see an aerial view of the whole club in the reflection. The bottle service area is roped off, featuring granite tables underneath chandeliers. It’s hard not to feel like you’re actually at a cabin.
Kabin is one of those rare places that successfully caters to everyone; the crowd is a melting pot of all types of people. The bar staff is very attentive, I never had to wait more than a few minutes to get a drink, and the prices are reasonable ($9 for a whiskey and ginger). If you’re in your early 20′s – late 30′s then this would be a good place for you to go on a Friday or Saturday night. I would recommend starting or ending your night here. The dance floor was packed, and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves drinking, dancing, and mingling. The DJ, (DJ Heat), played a house set that kept everyone moving.
For bottle service specials and rates, call 202.810.2770. Kabin is also available for private events.

The Competition Will Always Be There
Whether you’re into DC bars, lounges or clubs, one thing is clear: They’re all competing to show you a good time. From the no-frills bars on H street and upscale lounges of K, to the variety on U street and reckless EDM nights at Glow; DC is home to a wide range of independent and ‘corporate’ night life businesses.
Most venues and promoters work against each other.
Partnerships do exist, but generally it’s because of shared ownership somewhere. Panorama Productions (Ultrabar, Echostage, Glow, Barcode, Josephine) is trying something different.
Starting this Fall, Panorama will host ‘Rendezvous,’ a monthly affair that brings the competition together. Every month will feature Panorama promoting a new venue. It gives people a fresh experience and hopefully, a different take on the many options available in America’s #3 happiest place for young professionals.
This first installment happens Wednesday 10/2 on the Midtown rooftop.
The Midtown Partyplex is a DuPont Circle favorite, featuring multiple floors and tons of singles. With fall weather quickly approaching, there won’t be many rooftop nights left. Break up the week and join Panorama Productions as they go outside the box and inside a new location 1 night/month.

Midtown is a part of the Michael Romeo Group, owners/operators of Midtown/Midtown Loft, Dirty Martini/Dirty Bar, Tattoo, Lotus and the recently-closed Fur Nightclub. There is also talk of a new venue TBA in the near future.Tweet
