    VIBE

    A sceney lounge with a modern take on Marie Antoinette décor. Curvy, upholstered French seating, heavy velvet drapes, fireplaces, and romantic chandeliers create a sultry atmosphere that makes it feel like you’re partying in the home of one of your most stylish friends (or of a trendy French aristocrat). The spot was opened by two DJs back in 1995, and the music hasn’t stopped catering to the hip party crowd ever since. The door may be unmarked, but just look for the lines of 20-somethings outside and you’ll know you’re in the right place.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Something trendy but not too dressed up, like a designer frock and of-the-moment accessories with sassy heels. Guys tend to be in slacks and collared shirts (they’re specifically asked not to wear shorts, sandals, or athletic wear).

    CROWD

    Hip Dupont locals and in-crowd college kids

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The sexy vibe. We love coming here to lounge on the plush sofas with girlfriends and sway to the thumping dance music.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    The crowd can get a little too rowdy on Saturday nights.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    They have a great happy hour Tuesday-Friday from 5:30pm-8:00pm and Sunday from 9:00pm-11:00pm with beer and glasses of wine for USD 5 and select cocktails and margaritas (yum!) for USD 7-8.
