Venue Overview

From the team behind Public Bar, Capitale is a hybrid bar, lounge, and nightclub that boasts a grandiose interior, free admission on weekends, and one-of-a-kind happy hour. Located in place of the former K Street Lounge, Capitale seeks to deliver an inviting, unique, and exciting nightlife experience to DC.

There’s really no better way to describe Capitale’s ornate interior than saying it’s the byproduct of a Hollywood/Ancient Greece love affair set at Hogwarts. Featuring four massive bronze columns, snazzy chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and tons of refurbished throwback furniture, the Capitale makes no attempt to conceal its opulence. Also with a 40 foot wooden bar, four 55″ TVs, and a raised platform for girls to dance, Capitale is like SAX Lounge’s stylish, freewheeling little sister – both of which were designed by O’Neill Studios.

Perhaps Capitale’s most distinct feature is its “mobile kitchen” happy hour concept. Through its partnership with the DC Food Truck Association, Capitale invites some of the city’s best food trucks to park directly outside the venue between the hours of 5-9 pm. Customers are encouraged to bring food they purchase from these trucks inside the venue or dine outside on the patio, pairing meals with the in-house drink menu.

  • Happy Hour: “Mobile Kitchen” Happy Hour featuring DC Food Trucks outside venue
  • Tuesday: Tuesdays at Capitale by DT Nation – Hip-hop, R&B, Top 40s

Faking it with Fake IDs in DC Nightclubs

Fake IDs – Worth the Risk?

Disclaimer: We are not suggesting you purchase a fake ID. It is ILLEGAL.
This article is intended for entertainment purposes only.

With tons of  DC party schools and great nightlife options nearby, fake IDs are a right of passage for college students. This guide will walk you through the DOs and DONT’S of Fake ID and much more!

Punishment

Amazing! You’ve just scored a fake ID! With this piece of plastic, you’ve just earned an all-access pass to DC nightclubs. Right? No, not really! Fake IDs can be more of a hassle than they’re worth and carry life-changing penalties.

Before using a fake ID, consider the consequences…

PrisonersIf you are arrested and taken to the police station and placed in a holding cell, this is probably the only “jail” time you will see.  Misrepresentation of age in Washington, DC is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of a $300 fine and a 90-day suspension of your driving privileges if convicted.

This means you will have a criminal record. Having a conviction on your criminal record can have lasting consequences – including loss of scholarships or financial aid, the inability to hold certain jobs, and difficulty in obtaining certain occupational licenses.

How to Notice a Fake

DC bars have TONS of methods for determining if your ID is real or not. Think it’s only hair color, height, weight, torn edges and holograms they look for?  That’s child’s play.

  • Cards with magnetic strips can be swiped through ID scanners. A real magnetic strip will register in the system. Fakes display “invalid card.”
  • Black lights will reveal hidden images in some state identifications.
  • ID Reference Book – a bouncer training manual, complete with pictures and descriptions of IDs from all 50 states. Many bars also have a separate book with international forms of identification.

Pennsylvania IDs are a popular state to falsify. Can you spot the fake?

Fake PA ID

LICENSES 1, 3, AND 4 ARE LEGITIMATE PENNSYLVANIA LICENSES. LICENSE 2 IS THE FAKE.

Some under 21s will get an ID passed down from an older friend or relative. Keep in mind these IDs can still be dead giveaways.

Worst Fakes

From group photos to chugging a bottle, these fakers need to get a clue! Are you McLovin?

Fake ID Collage

Some Basic Dont’s

Don’t purchase at a store or on the Internet

Fakes are all over the Internet, with China producing some of the most authentic looking IDs.

Fake ID BustLast year in Chicago, Customs agents seized 1,700 counterfeit IDs that were shipped from China. Forty young people between the ages of 17 and 20 years old were charged with buying the fake IDs.

Most fake IDs found in head shops (think Adams Morgan) or novelty stores will never pass as a real ID.

How do these stores get around selling fakes?

Stores can sometimes get around this by claiming the IDs are for “novelty purposes,” though law enforcement is cracking down on this loophole.

Don’t give your ID Away

You are already over 21 and don’t have to worry about a fakes anymore. You think you are being nice giving (or selling) your ID to an upcoming freshman or younger sibling.

What could go wrong?

  • Contributing to false impersonation can get YOU in trouble!
  • The fake ID holder could use it to rent a car. YOU got insurance?
  • The fake ID holder could be caught stealing a car or killing someone… and claim it was YOU!
If caught, DO NOT be a D*ck!

Some bouncers are compensated for confiscating fake IDs. If you’re not arrested, you’re lucky, so don’t press your luck by asking to buy it back or fighting with the bouncer.

Don’t Go There!

Know your bar! If there is a bar or club that is notorious for underage clubbers – DO NOT GO THERE WITH A FAKE! Bouncers at under 21 clubs are specially trained to spot the fakes.

Dumb Sh*t People Do with Fake IDs

Stump the Drunk

If you are so desperate to be 21, then AT LEAST know your ID. Know “details” like address, date of birth, height, weight, hair color, etc.

Bouncers will try to confuse you. They may ask for your horoscope sign, the year you graduated high school, or the capital of your state.

Officially Stupid

Using a fake ID to obtain a passport, get a credit card, social security card, or obtain an apartment should be obvious, but people never cease to amaze.  Even getting a Blockbuster card with a fake is a big mistake.

Cop Blocking

Imagine this: while stumbling back to campus drunk, a cop stops you. Do you show them your fake? NO! Though you could still be arrested for public intoxication, showing a fake ID will just add to your charges and you will be spending summer break picking up trash on 395.

Pitiful Pass Back

Awesome! They just got past the bouncer at your favorite club. Now you’re idiot friend tries to pass back the same ID to you. FAIL! Unless the bouncer has amnesia, you’re toast.

Alternatives

Enjoy your youth, for one day, you will wish you could stop the aging process instead of pushing it along. In the meanwhile, there are a ton of DC nightlife under 21 options for you. Check out these spots and be glad you’re not that shriveled old cougar sipping on her wine spritzer or that creepy old guy with the Hooters take out bag and fanny pack!
