It’s rare to find a gay bar that swings two ways. When this P Street locale opened a few years ago, it had a Miami-chic vibe, all white with fluorescent-colored accents. Then it got hipster-industrial—smoked mirrors, dark leather, and vintage-light-bulb chandeliers. Cosmetic switch-ups aside, this has always been the highest-end gay bar in Washington, with one of the best happy hours going: a two-for-one deal on all drinks—including premium martinis served in portions sure to guarantee a night of ill-advised fun. Insider tip: Arrive early and snag the see-and-be-seen spot: a sofa and chairs arranged by the floor-to-ceiling window fronting P Street. Open daily.
