Bustling Nightlife in Midtown DC
Centered around Connecticut Avenue just a few blocks south of Dupont Circle, Midtown is a small but powerful section of DC that offers an incredible selection of nightlife venues. With so many clubs, lounges, bars, and drunk people in such a small area, it’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed when going out in Midtown! To alleviate some of that stress, we’ve made a list of some of the best venues in that area:
