The Nightlife Scene
Half a mile from Dupont Circle, arguably D.C.’s trendiest pocket, The Darcy is within strolling distance of a clutch of popular after-hours spots, such as Sotto
, a retro speakeasy (discreetly tucked below the notable Tuscan restaurant, Ghibellina), where Jazz Age libations can be enjoyed alongside nightly live blues performances. An even mellower night waits at Board Room
, a high-ceilinged lair with an arsenal of vintage and mainstream games (bonus points for bar-top Monopoly), which pair perfectly with pints of craft brew. For a taste of the capital’s avant-garde arts scene, catch a show at the four-stage Studio Theatre
, a nearly 40-year-old non-profit platform that nurtures local talent.
