“Dear PoPville,

I’m attending a bachelorette party in DC (convenient) and am looking to pass along some bar recommendations to the people planning it.

In this post-Covid world, what are some fun bars to go to? Not looking for a “club”- ideally a bar with a DJ or fun music, maybe even some dancing? Does that still exist? Bonus points for places in NW!”
