  • Atmosphere: Josephine Lounge in Washington DC is famous for the luxurious playground it provides The District’s young, upscale, fun-loving thrill seekers. Named after Napoleon’s first wife, the lounge is described as “a dark and mysterious adult fun house, all done up in black walls, lavender lights and multifaceted mirrors with embedded LEDs everywhere you look.”
Venue Overview

Entry to this chic DC lounges can be difficult on most nights. The attractive patrons one encounters upon descent into this playground for adults justifies the door policy. Large columns throughout the venue are adorned with diamond-shaped mirrors containing small LED lights between them. Plush VIP tables surround a sunken dance floor, while others line the top. More exist in the club’s Gold Room.

Josephine Lounge Washington DC

No one photo can capture the entire venue. While some go wild in The Pit, others relax at their tables overlooking the action. Beyond the VIP is the club’s Gold Room. Behind are the ‘L’ bars and dance floor.

Upon entering, to the immediate right are two bars in an ‘L’ shape, forming the outline of a small dance floor. The servers are some of DC’s hottest bartenders. The DJ booth extends just beyond the second bar and hangs over the sunken dance floor. Imagine the hottest people in DC thrown into a plush VIP area, enjoying the finer points of inebriation. And don’t worry if you didn’t purchase a table, you can still get down. Coming out of ‘The Pit’ on the other side one finds themselves entering the Josephine Gold Room. A kingly area that can open to the rest of the club, or clos off via a floating wall. It features a newly remodeled bar that spans the length of the room as well as a more open space that features an increased number of intimate VIP nooks. Josephine lounge in Washington DC is a place to see, be seen, hide, stay hidden, party hard, or take it easy

  • Monday: Fiesta – An upscale Latin event featuring an open bar from 10PM to Midnight
  • Wednesday: ‘Majesty’ in the Gold Room features one of DC’s best hip-hop parties, while ‘Gold Rush’ in the Gold Room features a Moet-sponsored nightlife industry affair.
  • Thursday: Glow Washington DC hosts the venue’s only no dress code, 18+ night featuring the best DJs in the world – Tiesto, Tommy Trash, Cedric Gervais, Thomas Gold, ATB and more.

The anticipation was overwhelming.
The hype, overflowing.
The energy, overloaded.

Club Glow’s first ever ‘Super Glow’ weekend at DC Armory featured two of dance music’s biggest stars at the home of the US National Guard.

Day 1: Avicii, Cazzette, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Matt Goldman
Avicii DC Armory Super Glow

A neon spectrum of college students poured out of school buses and through the front doors. Clad in headbands, sunglasses and glowing necklaces; a new generation of club kids were arm-in-arm, pumping their fists and stomping their feet.

Fans of house music came from as far as Los Angeles (and probably beyond) to experience Avicii’s biggest US concert to date. His 6th performance at Glow in 16 months, the bond between the 22 year-old and DC nightlife grows stronger with every show.

Taking the stage after sets by resident Matt Goldman, Dutch duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and fellow At Night artist Cazzette; Avicii furthered bridged the gap between house music and ‘pop.’

The Swede wove an impressive mix spanning all genres of house, allowing just enough room between anthems like Fade into Darkness, Levels and My Feelings for You. Obviously the crowd went buck –>

Avicii brought the epic night to a close with the eternally classic Kernraft 400 – Zombie Nation. In the words of one awe-struck fan, the event was “f***ing life changing!”

Day 2: Armin van Buuren, Pleasurekraft, Roberto Gonzalez

Super Glow Armin van Buuren DC Armory

Click on the pic for the rest of the photo albums!!!

Those who have seen Armin spin ten times or more can agree: No matter how many times you’ve seen the guy, he still blows you away, period. The guy is simply brilliant.

Opening sets by resident Roberto Gonzalez and tech-house superstar Pleasurekraft provided the perfect calm before the storm.

It’s been a while since the 4-time #1 DJ in the world did an extended set in the US. Back in the day it wasn’t uncommon for Armin to be spinning after the lights were on and the cleaning crew had started sweeping the club (Crobar anyone?). For a DC concert to get him for 6 hours at a venue like the DC Armory before a crowd of 10,000… was beyond special.

Fans from San Fran, Cleveland and a very strong contingent of NY club kids descended upon Washington DC for this epic event. We even met some people from Argentina! College students brave enough to go outside their comfort zone were blown away. The power of trance is all encompassing.

• Andain – Promises vs. Starkillers, Kenji & Nadia Ali – Pressure, fused different worlds of dance music.
• Kyau vs. Albert – Kiksu, brought nostalgia to a climax for the #trancefamily.
• John O’Callagan – Raw Deal vs. Armin van Buuren feat. Sharen Adel – In & Out of Love, was effing nuts!

Just the Beginning

Glow Washington DC’s inaugural Super Glow weekend provided DC nightlife with spectacular music, mind-bending visuals and for some, a life changing experience.

Whether you love dance music or not, this party is about more than just DJs. It’s about having the experience of a life time.
