Thanks to a reader for sending the color conversion at New Vegas Lounge.

Are you team red or blue?


For those not familiar with New Vegas Lounge:

“Well into its thirty-fifth year of operation, the New Vegas Lounge is a Washington, DC institution preceded by its reputation for great music. The Out of Town Blues Band is comprised of lead vocalists Jimmy Johnson and the venerable Dr. Blues as well as a 7-piece rhythm and blues band that includes a saxophonist, trumpeter, keyboardist, percussionist, and a bass & lead guitarist. It is comprised of an eclectic group of professional road musicians who have worked in the past with the likes of the late great Wilson Pickett, Gene Chandler, The Delfonics, Solomon Burke, Heat Wave, and Johnny Taylor, just to name a few.

As the flagship band for Dr. Blues Productions, The Out of Town Blues Band has worked with a number of national acts including having served as the back up band for The Delfonics, the late Wilson Pickett, and Stephen Stills (of Crosby, Stills & Nash).

They have also had the honor of having been chosen to play at three inaugural balls including one for President George W. Bush as well as former President William J. Clinton. They have also performed at over 500 weddings including a recent wedding for a White House staffer.”

    Perhaps it is just due to familiarity, but my first reaction is that I strongly prefer the red.

  • I like the blue better, but I think the red fits the business better. And that looks closer to Majorelle than Santorini to me :)

  • AJSE

    Red makes more sense and goes with their sign better. Not a huge fan of the blue.

    RIP Dr.Blues…a nice man and a great Washingtonian.
    Good to see this one last true R&B bar still kicking…miss the days of Bigfoot hosting open mic night during the weekdays.

    It will turn red again as soon as Team Valor takes its revenge.

    Blue for the blues! I like it. I’ve never been inside, but I walk past on the regular. Blue is just a more soothing color than fiery red. Side note: I wonder how much primer/how many coats of paint they had to use?

  • No Bikes

    Is this place even open? I’ve been in Logan for 2 years and have never seen it open.

  • Buggie

    Yes this place is open every Friday and Saturday night for get music and dancing! Even have private parties!
