  • Atmosphere: Elegance at every turn. Maintaining an air of historic Washington, Ozio is located in 2 combined row houses and fuses an Art Deco style with the colonial feel of exposed brick. Intimate yet spacious. Around every corner patrons will find hidden lounge areas for a quick escape. With all the different levels, it’s hard to nail down how many floors the venue is, which we love. At the top of Ozio sits a vibrant rooftop servicing two bars, VIP, more lounges and a high-end crowd that came to have a good time
Venue Overview

From the outside, Ozio seems to be a small, seemingly regular bar/lounge. The beautiful, well-dressed, diverse crowd waiting to get in says otherwise. The first floor allows patrons the luxury of smoking at the bar, provides ample booth seating and features the bar tending expertise (and trickery) of Ozio’s owner. A walk-in humidor cements the suave appeal of the venue. It’s the calm before the storm above.

As patrons ascend a wide, wrapping staircase, they are met with the first of Ozio’s many splits. To the left is a high-end cigar bar with a menu consisting of Arturo Fuentes (incl. Opus X) , Ashtons, Cohibas, C.A.O.s, Macanudos, Monte Cristos, Romeo & Julietas and a host of others, including the Padron Anniversario. It’s a level frequented by diplomats, businesspeople and young professionals alike. At the end of the bar and around a corner exists the first of many hidden lounges at Ozio. A descending staircase leads patrons into the 2nd row house, revealing exposed brick, artwork and spacious yet intimate couch settings.

From intimate nooks to a debaucherous rooftop, Ozio has it all!

Should you hang a right when arriving at the second floor, you’ll find a dance floor, bar and DJ booth at the far end of the room, and a gateway to the rooftop above. This gateway, another of Ozio’s levels, features a large table area and a mini staircase leading to another low key, spacious lounge area.

The proper stamp allows party goers access to Washington DC’s newest rooftop bar. Encased in an ever changing spectrum of club lights, scattered trees and two bars, Ozio’s rooftop provides a completely different atmosphere to the bars and lounges below. Featuring house music and outdoor bottle service, the Ozio rooftop club is DC nightlife’s newest gem. Packed with an attractive and refreshingly unpretentious crowd, it’s a great place to spend your weekend hours. Moving across the roof you’ll be met with more of Ozio’s famous elegant lounge and VIP areas. They are inside but feature open air hallways to the roof.

  • Happy Hour: M-F, 5-8 and Sat 6-11 feat. $4/5 Martini, $4 Wine and $3/4 Beer Specials
  • Dinner: Greek/Italian fusion highlighted by Grilled Baby Eggplant Pizza, an assortment of tapas, eclectic salads, sandwiches and entrees ranging from Chicken Corinthian to Baked Stuffed Shrimp to Filet. Kitchen open daily ’til midnight.
  • Late Night: Enjoy martinis, bottle service, cigars, various lounges and Ozio’s brand new rooftop every Monday – Saturday!

Washington DC nightclubs, bars and lounges are a playground for recording artists, politicians, students, athletes, tourists and more. Overshadowed by destinations like NY, LA and Miami, it’s easy to see how DC nightlife has flown under the radar. However, many of the world’s biggest names party in and return to The District.

We’ve popped bottles with Drake, done shots with FC Barcelona, had David Guetta name Glow the best party in the world, gotten ‘Lost’ with Miles and Frank Lapidus, done happy hour with Donald Rumsfeld, the list goes on. With the third largest college population in the nation, the DC crowd knows how to get down.

In no particular order:

Chris webby at Pop at ultrabar nightclub dcSure, you popped bottles just a few weeks ago for New Year’s Eve DC, but why not do it all over again ?  Only this time, you’ll learn from your mistakes on New Year’s Eve and won’t black out and try to bounce across I-495 naked on a rusty pogo stick while belting out Justin Bieber songs at the top of your lungs. (it seemed like a good idea at the time)  Consider this your second chance to do it proper!

We’re popping bottles and rocking out this Friday at POP at Ultrabar with a FREE bottle of champagne with every table booked in advance!

He enjoys blunts, 40s, sneakers, fitted hats and his little white poofball of a dog named Molly. Did we mention he has Simba from The Lion King tattooed on his leg? Like we said… defies all standards.  If you respect the grind, love to hate or are just curious how some preppy white boy from the burbs gets booked to do rap shows, you need to be at Ultrabar this Friday.

And of course, don’t forget the great DJs playing the best music on the 4 dancefloors throughout the club!  Its dancefloor insanity every Friday Night!
