Dive Bar, Washington DC

The DIVE bar in the basement can be exclusively yours and has a DJ booth, 10 TV monitors and room to dance in a more casual atmosphere.  Capable of holding up to 100 people, the sound system rocks and you can either have pre-programmed music on an iPad or laptop or contact us to have a DJ or hire your own to spin the night away. In warmer weather guests can occupy the outdoor patio as well.  Our 50 foot bar can accommodate three bartenders and we have staff to serve drinks, pass appetizers or serve sit down dinners. We have six beers on tap and a dozen in bottle to supplement our full bar. Feel free to contact us for a tour and walk through.
