Best African American Nightlife In Washington, DC
I adore the DMV area. I’ve been in the DC area for 12 years now, and even with gentrification happening I still feel like this is the perfect city for millennials, especially millennials of colors and young professionals of color. It’s regarded as a very political town, but it still has a work hard, play hard vibe to it. Especially spring and summer in DC, which is the most lit. We have a rooftop, patio game that can’t be matched anywhere else because we have beautiful views and it just makes you feel so good. That’s why I feel like DC is so lit.” –Simona Noce, 28, Event Planner
Marvin Mondays are what we like to call “Black night.” It feels good, it gives you very “I’m in the city, but still in someone’s backyard vibes.”
I love it because it’s black-owned and it gives me back what U Street used to be 7 years ago. U Street that used to be very Chocolate City no longer exists so it’s great to see all these black restaurants and bars popping up again. It’s owned by a Morehouse alum, and during happy hour they feature really food and cocktails – chicken wings and mumbo sauce (a DC staple). It’s the type of place you go with your friends for a good drink, and good eats and bites. It gives you total black high, black magic feel which is perfect after Wakanda.
It is actually connected to Hotel Monaco and it’s almost like an Alice in Wonderland. It’s an outdoor bar and has total good vibes.
It’s a quaint place. https://www.yelp.com/biz/lounge-of-three-washington-3ce on U Street where you can go for brunch and happy hour.
When I attended a concert there, you picked your seat at the time of the ticket purchase. There was no minimum drink or food requirement.
