For the love of music that dare not speak its name


I'm actually a Baltimore queer (c'mon, go ahead and laugh, let it out) but I'm looking for cool places to dance to good music (rather than chick pop, which I also respect).

Any ideas? Black Cat?

Well I'm gonna quote dc_gay_man here but this is what he posted:

Here are the places you might want to give it a go: Velvet Lounge, Taint, and Wonderland. If you shoot me your e-mail to my yahoo account of the same name, I will get you on the right listservs and you can find the scene.

I also recommend Blowoff with Bob Mould and Rich Morel on Saturday nights in the basement bar. They play to a different beat and generate a great crowd.

I'm the God of Quotes!

this is from:

Velvet Lounge
915 U Street , NW

Located on the less bustling end of the increasingly popular U Street revival area, Velvet Longue keeps its promise as one of DC's "most eclectic" performance spaces. Downstairs is filled with a hip and chill clientele drinking (cheap!) martinis under the light of funky lamps. Upstairs has an incredible sound system for such a small venue and live multi-track digital recording facilities. They host local bands as well as top national indy acts.

Wonderland Bar
1101 Kenyon St , NW

Wonderland is a great bar that entered the Columbia Heights scene around Labor Day this year. It appeals to hipsters, but has a neighborhood feel that could be associated with any rustbelt city more than the District. The two level space provides a normal bar downstairs, and a smoke-free, quieter upstairs. The place is low-key and friendly. Wonderland has a solid juke box, plenty of faces, and already hosts a variety of local events. This is a welcome addition to a usually quiet street.
