While there are some of us who prefer bottle service every weekend and those that reserve a night at the club for those special occasions, we've narrowed down a list of the top DC clubs that are most popular in the District and perfect for your night out. Depending on whether you want to dance all night in your high tops to some funky alternative DJ or dress up and mingle with a glass of champagne while perusing the social scene, we've got all the places for every type of mood you may be ready to experience this weekend.
Dealing with this year's winter weather has been rough for DMV locals. Washingtonians can't stomach anything resembling a Midwest snowstorm and for most, the cold will impact their willingness to hit the town. Those itching for the cozier bar experience of summer nights past will be looking for every opportunity to comfortably throw one back inside; luckily, in the District the sky is the limit. Here are our favorite heated DC rooftop bars to stay warm with a drink in hand.
When life hands you lemons, make a whiskey sour! That's always been my personal spin on the old adage, but is it whiskey or whisky?! Being a fan of a stiff bourbon drink, I've recently realized that there are two spelling variations of the booze. Naturally, I inquired to Google and found that there is a heated cyber debate over the proper spelling, whiskey vs. whisky. From my research, it seems to break down to this: whisky, lacking the e, denotes a Scotch whisky, while whiskey denotes the Irish and American liquors. Since I'm not partial to either side of the debate, I consider myself a fan across the board and rounded up some of my favorite spots in DC to partake in a little whisk(e)y business.
As the temperatures dip below freezing, our nights cuddling on the couch in our pajamas with a bottle glass of wine increase exponentially. Navigating through the frigid air is basically last on our of list of things we want to do but the social butterfly in us gets restless! Thankfully, there are geniuses in this world that created restaurants and bars with crackling fireplaces and cozy couches. A night out on the town seems less daunting when it includes the warmth of a hearth and...well, booze, of course.
While there is no denying that Washingtonian men enjoy a significant advantage when it comes to the guy-to-gal ratio in the District, a boys-only night on the town is sometimes a must. (There is only so much reality t.v. and meaningless gossip one pretend to listen to, after all.)

Midtown Partyplex, the multi-level club at Connecticut and 18th NW, is adding yet another level: an open rooftop.
Midtown already has a main level with a VIP loft area (where the celebs often go), a spacious middle level with multiple bars and the "red room," and an upper level which usually plays international music (this music scheme may change post-launch). It's off the deck on this upper level where the stairs will lead to the new rooftop, giving the Golden Triangle club a grand total of four party areas. More»
