Chandeliers, incense, and a plethora of velvet sofas set the mood in the two stories of this former mansion. The lounge, best known for its taste in music, is co-owned by Eric Hilton, one half of DC’s Thievery Corporation. The duo still plays the occasional DJ set, but if they’re not around, make sure to drop in Wednesday when a reggae band plays. After 9:30, there’s often a cover charge of up to $20. Don’t wear sneakers or a baseball cap—you won’t get past the door.
