Drink At Velvet Lounge
The grungy digs and graffitied back patio are a refreshing break from U Street corridor’s bougie, gentrified bars. The inside is narrow and can become easily cramped on weekends with no room to dance – dive bars aren’t that fun when the grease just becomes strangers’ sweat! But, if you go on a weekday night, there will be a DJ and plenty of chilled vibes to embrace.
