Here’s a little insider’s tips and tricks guide for an amazing Saturday night at Ultrabar Nightclub and Lounge in DC.
Where is it: Ultrabar is located at 911 F Street, NW, Washington DC, at the corner of 9th and F Streets. It is 2 blocks away from the Verizon Center, and right next to Gallery Place Chinatown and Metro Center metro stations. Metro runs until 2-3 am depending on the station. There’s a lot of taxis available in the area, so don’t hesitate to cab it to the Club.
When to go: Doors open at 9pm. The club gets busy by 11:00 and packed by midnight.
Drink Specials: There’s an Open Bar (yes that means free drinks), from 9-10pm. Also $8 1800 silver Tequila, $6 007 drinks( pronounced double O 7′s), $8 Grand Marnier shots, $6 Patron Espresso shots, $5 Don Julio Tequila shots, and $5 Dos Equis beer until midnight.
Music Format: Main floor has Dance and Hip Hop. The DJ is actually using Video Mixing as well, which means that he’s actually mixing Videos with the songs and you can enjoy it on the big screen projection. There’s a Mezzanine overlooking the main floor with its own bar and a good amount of tables and couches if you wanna relax away from the madness.
Basement has Old School Hip Hop music. Check out the basement; it used to be the Vault of the Bank that occupied this century year old building many years ago and you can actually see the old safe deposit boxes still preserved in a glass display. There’s seating towards the back of the floor, in case you wanna relax and talk with your friends.
Bedroom is the second floor, recently renovated and looking modern and comfortable. Dance to the Latin Beats of DJ Mario; doing the Salsa is mandatory here!
Chroma is the top floor of Ultrabar. The music is International here and the crowd is definitely more eclectic on that floor. Chroma means color in Greek, and if you visit that floor you’ll see how it took its name.
How to save money, skip the line and look cool at the same time: Saturdays at Ultrabar are hot. There’s usually a very long line of people trying to get in. But guess what; you don’t have to wait in line, and you don’t have to pay!!!
