Motown lovers can get up close and personal with their favorite soul hits every weekend at this Logan Circle lounge. Friday and Saturday nights, the seven-piece Out of Town Blues Band plays hits by James Brown, Sam Cooke, and the Temptations for a crowd of preppy young professionals as well as cool older couples looking to relive the concerts of their youth. Open since 1971, Vegas was redone in 2002 (hence the “New”) with a tiled seating area and handsome wooden bar. Cover charge $10.
