Flash – Bar and Dance Club Applying to Stay Open 24hrs and other Good Stuff

645 Florida Ave, NW

A few weeks ago we noted that Flash Snack Bar had posted their menu at 645 FLorida Ave, NW. You can see the full menu here. I stopped by the other day and was blown away at how big this place is. Well, the snack bar downstairs is actually pretty small but it has a great chill vibe. Upstairs is home to the much larger music/dance spot. In a speakeasy sorta way you get upstairs by going through an old photo booth in the back of the first floor. The staircase is filled with graffiti making the entrance into the second floor space even more impressive. You can see their calendar of upcoming shows here.

I actually hadn’t realized the upstairs was already open. In my defense, I am old. But I can still appreciate how awesome this could be:

Their facebook page says:

Dance music has a new headquarters in the District. Located in the newly booming Shaw neighborhood, Flash will bring world class nightlife to our nation’s capital. For those who prefer their house music served hot, Flash is the first and only club in North America to feature Full Fat Audio amplifiers, paired with a digitally processed, fully active, 4-way stereo Funktion-One sound system with over 30,000 peak watts to ensure that all bodies will remain in motion at all times.

And when I stopped by to ask about the 24 hour application I learned that those late hours will likely just be for the weekend. And I also learned the summer garden out front should be open in the next week. And even cooler, next year they hope to open a roof deck. Oh yeah the first floor will also be expanding soon which will open it up a bit. Bottom line, this place is very nondescript when walking down Florida Ave. but there is a lot more than meets the eye. There’s actually lots for everyone here – dancing/music upstairs, chill bar downstairs, and I’m told a pretty mean beef tounge flatbread too.
