Previously known as Karma, Skye Lounge opened March 2008 under the ownership of Dan Allen & George Koutsoukos. They envisioned a venue that “would cater to the sports fan and martini connoisseur alike,” and they have successfully created a laid-back atmosphere in a great venue.
Cost – $$
Service – B+
I was admittedly a bit tipsy by the time I got to Skye Lounge last Friday evening so I can’t recall whether the service was very good or bad. I remember the manager being pretty friendly and accommodating however so I’m going to give the service the benefit of the doubt.
Food – ?
Decor – B+
It has been pretty tastefully decorated and offers a comfortable up-scale interior. There are several large plasma TVs spread throughout the venue and the walls are lined with nice leather couches.
Feel – B+
I think Skye Lounge is exactly the place you want to go for a relaxed weekend evening in a cool venue where you can get drinks pretty readily and also dance a bit…or for a happy hour drink during the week. For watching a game it might not be a bad option either if you happen to live in the area.
Skye Lounge is at the corner of 19th and I. They can be reached at (202) 331-5800.
