Best Hip Hop Clubs in DC

Admittedly, I’m probably not the best person to put together a list of hip hop clubs in DC but I recently was asked the question and found myself struggling to come up with a decent list so I figured this would be a good opportunity to post something and see what sort of feedback is out there.

Shadow Room – Thursday is all hip hop.  The other nights, there is more of a blend of Top 40 and Hip Hop.  The good thing about Shadow Room is the quality of venue and crowd.

Club Modern – Modern has been a pretty sustainable venue on M Street in Georgetown despite the fact that it doesn’t appeal to the typical Georgetown crowd.  It has a relatively upscale feel and offers a good mix of Hip Hop and funk.

Midtown Lounge – They have Hip Hop / Top 40 nights on occasion (check their site to be sure) and Midtown Lounge is definitely on the short list of hot DC clubs currently.

The Muse Lounge – The hottest go go dancers in DC make this a good choice for Hip Hop.  If you can’t dance at least you can watch.

    Although not a huge hip hop room, Josephines’ Gold Room definitely has good beats that will get you 2 stepping and grinding!
