The biggest DJs from around the world! DC lounges experience the best of the best at Glow Thursdays at Josephine.
“Josephine features an open layout and a good size main-room capacity that we feel is ideal for an intimate Thursday night. The sunken area, known as “The Pit,” will not feature bottle service, but rather exist purely as a dance floor. The back room (Gold Room) will be open, overlooking the main floor, for people to relax and enjoy the music.” – Glow
Atmosphere: Sleek lounge downstairs, low key bar with hookah upstairs. Vita can be really great or slightly confusing depending on who you’re with and what you’re looking for. To be fair, we’ve only been once on a Friday. The downstairs crowd was a random mix of people, all of whom seemed to be having a blast listening to upbeat tech/house. The upstairs crowd was more of the underground variety, enjoying deeper beats, hookah and low key chilling.
Vita has a straight-on layout with a raised VIP area to the right and a bar to the left. Reddish-pink wall panels illuminate the room. Tucked in the corner at the end of the bar is a DJ booth. Some would say it’s a bit too out fo the way. Beyond that is a set of about 5 steps leading to a raised back area. It’s very spacious and has some nice VIP booths.
The upstairs of Vita, named Penthouse 9, is bit more unique. It’s a hookah lounge/bar with a rustic American vibe. At the top of the stairs, immediately to the left and around a corner is a VIP area. It’s an nice, intimate group setting. Straight ahead is a bar and small DJ booth. Beyond that is a back room with a hookah bar. Penthouse 9 is a chill spot to hang out with some seriously dope music if you like the deep stuff.
Vita is also an Italian-American restaurant serving specialties like New Zealand lamb chops, New Orleans salmon and Seafood Linguine.
Friday: Happy Hour: 5-8
Vita: ‘Unplugged’ with Johnny Diaz and friends (Moombahton, Electro, Bass, House)

How a place can change between its identities as a Restaurant, Bar, and Lounge while keeping them separate and distinct is completely baffling, but it’s the key to success for this city-dwelling chameleon.
