1606 20th Street, NW

Thanks to a reader for the heads up. On Jan. 8th ONE Lounge wrote on their facebook page:

“After 5 awesome years, One Lounge will be shutting it’s doors tonight. Thank you to all our customers, friends and neighbors for being a part of such a great place.. Check out 1606 20th Street NW in the spring for a great new concept, coming soon!”

    let me guess, the next “concept” is to serve alcohol and maybe some food? because I think that would be a great concept and you guys can really make it out big time as few others have thought that through

    I had a party reserved with them for Jan 31. So glad I saw this!

    Now I have a huge birthday party with no place set… Any ideas??

      This place was a drug den. I saw people openly doing drugs in the bathroom on two occasions. After that I stopped going.

        You mean like most every other bar/lounge? Just because you don’t/haven’t seen it doesn’t meam its not happenin. Wonder where you party at now.

          Haha, exactly. I guarantee at least one person does coke in the bathroom at every bar in Dupont/Adams Morgan/U&14th areas on a weekend night.

        Hahahahaha! We’re not in Kansas anymore…

    • How huge? DC Science Club isn’t far from here and they let you book several floors for parties at minimal cost.

      Shaw’s Tavern gave me the upstairs for my bday party at no charge/no minimum and extended happy hour drink pricing all evening for us. You might give them a call.

      Darlington House, right next door.

  • Always kind of a weird vibe itself and clientele, but actually a pretty cool space. Lots of different rooms for hanging out or dancing, and a somewhat hidden 2nd floor space great for birthday parties (don’t think there was a fee and possibly a low spend minimum either). Never super-crowded.

    but…the typeface!
    furthermore (here i go again): “lounge” (e.g. trying to be a bar, restaurant, and club, while failing to be good at any of them)

    i went here once during the winter. the heat was broken, so it was freezing. the food was just okay, not great. and the service and atmosphere was really weird. i got such an odd vibe from this place, that i never thought of even considering to go back. the space is really nice, so i hope whatever happens there in the spring makes much better use of it.

    Let me guess…new concept…small plates and $15 cocktails
