Surefire Ways to Get the Boot

There’s nothing like getting wasted and grinding on your girl while swinging her bra around your head… ’til you see the flashlight in your face and feel a bouncer’s arm around your neck. People watch in disgust as cabs drive by you in that puke-stained shirt.  It has happened to the best of us, so here is what to avoid!
Underage Drinking

underage drinkingThis is a no-brainer! What? The big “X” on your hand didn’t tip you off?

Though there are plenty of under 21 nightclubs in DC, save the drinking until your 21. Your waistline will thank you, and so will security.

If you must drink pre-21, hop the border to our neighbors in Mexico or Canada and enjoy the hangover!

The Runaway

stealing from the barSomewhere between the bar and the front door must lay the Bermuda Triangle.Why people guzzle down drinks then disappear without paying is a mystery.

It’s the same as walking into the mall and walking out with unpaid merchandise.Maybe a security tab stapled onto guest’s nuts would keep them from walking out.

Touching the Dancers

glow girlsLook, but don’t touch!

Dancers like DC nightlife’s Glow Girls are there to get you dancing, not to get you off. Think of it like a zoo animal and keep your fingers out of the cage.

Sloppy Drunks

Binge DrinkingIt can be hard with so many drink specials, but drinking past your limit is dangerous to your health and more importantly annoying to everyone.

Stumbling around like a drunken buffoon just leads to fights, messy puking and the risk of a DUI!

Fighting

Can’t we all just get along?

Alcohol + the typical macho douche bag =unnecessary brawls

Why get thrown out of the club and into a cop car?

Frisky Business

Club PDASave the aggressive PDA for your mom’s basement.  Removing articles of clothing and/or humping like dogs in heat in the middle of the dance floor is gross.

Two thumbs up for your exhibitionist spirit, but it’s better suited for soft-core porn than a public place.

Geysers

Puke in ClubKeep a lid on your bodily fluids.

Can’t hold it in? Try an adult diaper.

Throwing up is so High School! Know your limit!

Save the spitting for the baseball diamond and if the unspeakable  is your issue, there is a nice room waiting at Shady Pines Retirement Village.

Inventive Weaponry

Hair PickCarrying a weapon will make sure you do not enter the nightclub, though in the heat of an alcohol fueled rage clubbers creative senses may heighten.

Your new stiletto heels= Blunt Force Object

Hairspray= Easy mace in a pinch

                    That pic sticking out from your fro= Knife Fight

Disrespecting the Bouncer

Big BouncersSometimes bouncers will give you a warning before kicking you to the curb.

This is your one chance to redeem yourself.

No need to dig your own grave by fighting with the bouncer, he may be an escaped convict, a bounty hunter, a cop, or just bigger than you.

Grab Bag

Grabbing Girls at ClubsUnwarranted grabbing at other guests is a sure fire way to get thrown out.

Would you grab someone at Starbucks or in passing on the street? NO!

If you would, you are probably already shunned from society or sharing a cell at the DC Correctional Institution.

Hot Pockets

tipsBusy bartenders may not get a moment to immediately pick up their tips off the bar.

Helping yourself to their money, or trying to pawn off another customer’s tip as your own is a great way to piss off the bartender and be escorted out, sober, and alone.

Wrecking Ball

trashing barAVOID!!!

Throwing glassware

Jumping on furniture

Destroying club property

Though a common practice of rockstars in hotel rooms, or gorillas in a cage, throwing property is a no-no.

Passing Out

Passed OutThe pass out is akin to the narcoleptic. One moment, fine, the next…

“Yeah! Party! Woo Hoo, I love this….” THUMP!

You definitely don’t want this to be you, especially if you are wearing a dress.

Murder on the Dancefloor

Clubs can be very territorial.

Make sure not to over step your bounds and try to move in on the owner’s wife/girlfriend.

Castration may follow!

Some people come to a nightclub looking for trouble. Others can’t handle their liquor interact socially with others. No one likes to be asked or told to leave an establishment, especially when they paid to get in. If security has reminded the guest several times about their conduct, it will come as no surprise when they’re finally asked to leave. remember, what gets you thrown out may also get you in trouble with the law!

Clarendon

Clarendon is the heart of Arlington, VA’s nightlife and dining scene. A variety of restaurants, clubs, lounges, live venues and bars makes it an eclectic, middle-of-the-road destination. With new restaurants, retail space and luxury condos being built, this DC suburb located just over the Key Bridge from Georgetown is full of young professionals looking for a good time.

Madrose Tavern

MadroseLocated at the intersection of Washington and Clarendon Blvd: Madrose features a large outdoor patio outside while the inside contains a lounge and dining area.

The food is pub-inspired complete with an extensive beer selection and full bar.

Madrose serves dinner from 4 to 11 pm but the party doesn’t stop until 2am as guests party the night away. Weekends also feature a lively brunch 10:30am to 2:30pm.

A-Town

A-Town caters to every crowd from family dinner to a wild night out on the town!

A-Town is popular as a sports bar, specifically during football games and features one of the biggest Sunday brunch buffets you’ll ever see.

Clarendon Ballroom

Clarendon Ballroom Arlington NightlifeClarendon Ballroom in Arlington is exactly what the name says.

The room is huge, the dance parties are awesome and you can rent it out for private parties. There’s also an ill roof.

The crowd is ready for whatever!

Guarapo

hookah bars washington dcOwned by the same group as Chi-Cha lounge, Guarapo is Clarendon’s top hookah spot.

It’s the only place in town that offers Guarapo cocktails (sugar cane syrup mixed with vodka and lime juice).

With a nice tapas menu and DJs, its always a safe bet.

Spider Kelly’s

bars in clarendon arlington vaSpider Kelly’s is kinda like Chuck-E-Cheese for big kids that wanna get wasted. We love that.

Bigger and better than ever, recent renovations brought a new bar, lounge areas, pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and video games to the neighborhood spot that’s open late every night!

Liberty Tavern

Arlington Bars washington dcInside sources tell us this a great place to hunt big cats, if ya know what we mean.

Dining room upstairs, bar downstairs, nice beer/wine/cocktail menu… happy hunting!

Ri Ra

bars in arlington vaFrom the website and description you’d think this Irish pub was more suited to a 30’s crowd, but we heard different!

With so many young pros and college students in the area, Ri Ra can get pretty crazy.

Arlington Rooftop

best bars in arlington VAMovie night, trivia night and obviously a bad ass rooftop in the heart of it all.

Definitely a little more of a young professional than a ‘let’s get wasted’ kind of place. But all that means is good beer and a clean roof.

  • Estimated Size: 400 people
  • Amenities: 1 Floor, Bottle Service, Private Events, Valet Parking
  • Cover Charge: $20
  • Hours:
    Friday & Saturday 10:00 pm – 3:00 am

  • Website: http://www.kstreetdc.com
  • Atmosphere: Trendy/upscale.
Venue Overview

kstreet lounge is one of a handful of lounges to pop up over the course of K Street’s urban facelift in the past decade. With an emphasis on bottle service and table reservations but extra room for casual partiers to get their groove on, kstreet provides a spot for dancing, drinking, and socializing.

Traditionally a luxury playground for a late 20s, early 30s crowd of lawyers and lobbyists, kstreet is starting to expand its clientele by appealing to a younger crowd. While the “who’s who” of DC are a common sight at this venue – sporting Gucci and dropping off their exotic foreign cars at the lounge’s valet parking (complimentary with table reservation) – throngs of mid-early 20s professionals sporting Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger are helping pack the small but popping dance floor.

lounges k street area downtown washington dc

When you get too sweaty from dancing up a storm, kick back at your table or post up on the bar and soak in the lounge’s 14 plasma TVs, a high-end projection screen, and 20 LCD monitors with customizable content.  kstreet is equipped for some serious audio-visual entertainment action.

After cooling off, perhaps give yourself a look in a mirror to make sure your hair gel or makeup isn’t running: the lounge’s minimalist, futuristic-looking white-on-white color scheme keeps the venue relatively illuminated. Although a great place to be “seen,” it doesn’t really offer the intimate privacy of a dark corner.

Parties
  • Friday: Hip hop and R&B
  • Saturday: Hip hop and R&B
  • Sunday: Top 40s and House
