Venue Overview:

Flash is a new dance venue located in the Shaw District. When you first walk in, the ground floor is a trendy, modern bar with a food menu (currently being updated), and a patio area out front. One of the coolest features of Flash is the photobooth on the first floor. The line to get upstairs to the main room gets a little long sometimes, so the photobooth provides a nice distraction and an awesome way to document the night out with friends. Admission is usually free before 11 pm, after that there is a cover charge of $10-$15 depending on the night.

The main room at Flash nightclub’s upstairs level upstairs isn’t that big – capacity of 200 people – but what Flash lounge lacks in space, they make up for with tasteful decoration and sound. Once you see the DJ booth, you’ll understand why they called the venue Flash; the back wall surrounding the DJ booth is made up entirely of  old camera flash attachments that light up and “flash” during the DJ set.  Flash is also the only nightclub in the District to use Full Fat Audio amplifiers, so the sound is extra loud. If you’re into deep house, tech house, or underground, then Flash is the place for you. The club was recently filled to max capacity for Hot Since 82’s North American tour.

Seating upstairs is plentiful, with booths and tables lining both walls. Be careful with your drinks though, the tables are a little uneven and drinks tend to spill if you put them in the wrong spot. Bottle service is available upon request.

Venue Overview

The Cloakroom is Washington, DC’s newest and most luxurious gentlemen’s club. There are plenty of strip gentlemen’s clubs in DC, but as soon as you approach Cloakroom you know it’s going to be different. Being greeted at the door by polite and friendly staff is refreshing, in fact all of Cloakroom’s staff fits that bill. After walking past the velvet ropes and making your way inside a massive main stage is the center of attraction. One side is adjoined by a bar complete with seating. Multicolor lights and funky (in a good way) carpets give the venue a retro-chic feel with modern features.

Seating is comfortable, and refined. Two two-story poles (and of course the dancers) steal the show. They have to be seen in person for full effect but we can tell you they look like they go on forever.

The second story has a VIP feel complete with its own seating, a separate stage and bar.  No need to miss the action on the main floor though, the second floor wraps around complete with clear views of everything going on. A VIP Guest Lounge truly defines VIP accommodations: the closed-off room contains couches and plenty of space and an option to view what’s going on outside. A DJ booth is also on this level with clear sight lines of the entire venue. This open format compliments the setting nicely.

Food and drinks are done right, the hilarious menu makes ordering food much more fun than it should be. Cloakroom raises the bar on adult entertainment while offering a comfortable environment for all.
