Dupont Circle

It’s very much a case of upstairs and downstairs at this place; upstairs is for dance and attracts a younger African-American crowd, while downstairs, where the actual fireplace is, attracts an older, racially mixed clientele. Some say its cliquey and seedy, others love it. In any case, it’s a DC fixture.
