Party On the Strip
AdMo, as it’s often called, has a vibrant night life scene catering the mid 20′s to 30′s crowd that still wants to party like its college. The DC neighborhood also has a ton of hookah bars and ethnic restaurants. Be careful driving down 18th street on a Friday/Saturday night… parking is horrible, people will be walking in the streets and cops will definitely pull you over for failing to yield.
District is the only club-style venue in AdMo; featuring wrap-around mezzanine, dance floor and fire-breathing bartenders.
A late night kitchen, 3 bars, and VIP tables, District is a centerpiece of Adams Morgan nightlife.
Owned by the same people as District, District Underground provides an alternative to its more mainstream sibling.
House music and an impressive light system featuring 6,000 LEDs makes this a must see.
Open 7 days a week until 2 or 3AM, Grand Central features a main bar, sunken dance floor and upstairs bar/lounge.
The center of it all in Adams Morgan, the venue never has cover and has a great patio that lets you catch all the action in DC’s craziest nightlife neighborhood.
Heaven and Hell
Home to one of the largest dance floors in Adams Morgan, Heaven and Hell offers theme nights and live music and DJs.
Listed as a favorite hangout by Playboy and Stuff Magazine, Madam’s Organ Blues Bar is a DC landmark for blues and soul food.
A restaurant/bar whose main floor features a maze of massive fish tanks and a huge circular bar.
Enjoy drinks and late night food on the open rooftop!

Come out and learn how to do the tango, samba, bossa nova, cumbia, vallenato, salsa, danzon, rumba, and more!
Not a nightlife venue per se, but Tryst is definitely a place to be in Adams Morgan.
Featuring quality coffee and espresso, pastries, small plates and free WiFi, Tryst is the equivalent to a British pub or Greek taverna.
It’s ‘that third place’ between work and home for people to relax.
Hookah Bars and Lounges
Adams Morgan is famous for its numerous hookah bars and lounges.
Some are nice, some are nice but full of shady-looking dudes.
All are great places to pre-game and figure out where you want to go. We recommend Soussi.Tweet
