HOT HOT HOT! That is the girls on the 3 stages.
GREAT GREAT GREAT! That was the Bacon Cheeseburger for lunch.
Needless to say we had a great time. Went with 2 others for lunch to discuss some upcoming deals and ended up staying for several hours once we were done. Service couldn't have been better. I am bringing my wife back. She loves the strip clubs (I am so lucky!)

I like Gallery Place's cinema mainly because its convenient to where I live, plays all the current movies, and is relatively clean. Because the location is central to most neighborhoods in DC and close to the metro, however, it's often crowded and finding a good seat for a movie on opening weekend can become a mission. Another big downside: they're ridiculously strict about bringing in outside food - I've experienced this in other cities before but Gallery Place is unnecessarily strict. I've come here to see movies multiple times where I had leftovers in a box or food from shopping and they didn't allow me to go in - what can they expect if I ate at Bar Louie but can't go home and drop off my leftovers?? Just expect to eat everything if you have dinner beforehand.

My favorite place to get Martini's in Washington DC. The setting is a perfect place to meet friends and clients for an after work drink. The bartender, Gina comes up with new fresh and delicious martini's. I try and get to the Sky Bar at least twice a week. See you there. . .

This lounge, adjacent to the St. Regis hotel's Adour restaurant is a modern, glamorous nook for expertly made cocktails and casual conversation. The bright space occupies the corner of 16th and K streets, and plentiful windows make it bright and cheery, unlike some similar upscale hotel bars in the area. Designed by David Rockwell, the space is a rich mix of violet, black, blue and silver; satiny throw pillows decorate navy settes, and mod silver light fixtures reflect off polished black tabletops. As the menu notes, the bar's signature cocktails are "designed with wine in mind" and feature elegant, "Sex and the City"-worthy concoctions made with Prosecco and fresh ingredients such as muddled blackberries.

No review of a bar is complete without drink recommendations. While the Ugly Mug will certainly have its share of specials, I'd recommend just sticking to the Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA. Since I have Texas roots, every now and then I can be seen here polishing off a Shiner Bock. The draft beer is respectable, yet it is not special. For a run of the mill drinking experience at reasonable prices with edible food to boot, the Ugly Mug is my destination on Barrack's Row.

In 1988, go-go king Chuck Brown formed an all-star group called the Go-Go Posse, which recorded the song "D.C. Don't Stand for Dodge City" to raise awareness about the violent reputations associated with go-go clubs, particularly on U Street. It's only fitting that this bar, opened several decades later and during U Street's nightlife renaissance, is named after the song. Sharing an owner with the Velvet Lounge next door, the DJ lineup here proves that, much like the rest of U Street, this is another hangout for the hip. The first floor features a back bar and several bar stools and tables along exposed brick walls, and the turntables are upstairs next to a small dance floor and a second bar.

The famous/infamous Buddha Bar finally opened in DC recently; for myself it was a mix of experiences. I like the dark, lounge-like atmosphere with Asian influenced decor and the music is pretty bumpin'. But if you're expecting a nice, quiet dinner don't come here because after a certain time the music does get fairly loud and the lights go dim to the point that you almost can't find the way to the bathroom. The food is good, though not spectacular and not really up to par with it's high prices - I've had their curry bento box which is a good deal at $29 and fairly flavorful with 2 different curries, rice, chutney and a sauteed vegetable. Expect to spend your whole night dining and experiencing Buddha Bar though - they're still trying to work out the kinks in terms of timely service.

This larger-than-life restaurant and lounge has the grandeur of a posh Vegas hot spot with a simultaneously Washingtonian, equal-access vibe. There's no list, cover charge, or even designated dance floor, though patrons have been known to shake it near their seats as the spirit (or DJ, suspended in a mod white box above the sweeping space) moves them. Bottle service is available but not needed to snag one of the stylish low settees, upholstered in rich red hues and luxe fabrics. Triple-tiered light fixtures and cathedral ceilings with floor-skimming drapes add to the drama, but the focal point is the giant, eponymous statute sitting sagely in the dining room, where patrons feast on the pan-Asian menu and indulge in some of the bar's exotic cocktails.

Local 16 is a staple for those living in the U St. area (as I used to) or those who frequent the area at night. There's lots of space in this 2 story lounge but its popularity leads it to fill up pretty quickly, especially on weekends. There is quite a bit of seating but you'll more than likely end up standing. If it's not too packed, the rooftop deck is great, especially when the weather is warm or a bit cool. Drinks are pretty good, usually strong, so you don't feel like you're spending too much. I have been on several occasions in which the DJ was great and I danced the night away - however, I have been at times when the DJ plays trashy Euro-house that's too annoying to listen or even dance to.

The 16th museum to join the Smithsonian Institution, the National Museum of the American Indian was established by an act of Congress in 1989 and is the first in this country established for the preservation and study of Native American cultures. The collections include more than 800,000 works and represent nearly all tribes in the United States and Canada, as well as some in Central and South America. The museum structure itself is nearly a work of art, from the multi-story atrium inside to the ponds and fountains that surround it. Its Mitsitam Cafe, serving authentic native foods from the western hemisphere, continues to be a lunchtime dining destination in its own right.
