Fly Lounge is a trendy little night club located at 1802 Jefferson Place, in Dupont Circle.
Cost – $$
Service – B
Service-wise, Fly is notorious for two things: turning people away at the door and copious amounts of cleavage from their scantily clad bartendresses. I think these two things cancel one-another out, hence the grade. At the same time, if the door isn’t an issue then the service is actually quite good. I guess you could say that about most places though.
Food – ?
I actually don’t think they serve any food there although I have snacked on olives at the bar before.
Decor – B
The interior of Fly has been designed to mirror the interior of an airplane. It is a little gimmicky but actually sort of cool.
Feel – A
I think Fly has some of the best crowds in DC. I haven’t ever been irritated by anyone as a matter of fact when I’ve been there. Actually, sometimes I have found myself irritated by people who get tables there for some reason. Guess what idiot? You’re not in New York – you’re in DC, so get off your high-horse about having a table. Basically though, the place has a good vibe. If you’re interested in seeing what the crowds are like they have an annoying Flash Web site with regularly updated photos.

August 21, 2007 – Venturing into Fly Lounge (Killing the AFC in Me) – Everyone bailed on me Friday night so rather than do my normal club crawl, I decide to go to FLY. It’s about 11:30pm, there’s were about three girls outside smoking and two guys in line. Full Article…
