Just two blocks from the White House is this massive 37,000-square-foot restaurant with a separate music venue, Hamilton Live, downstairs. The main eatery seats 500; the multilevel stage area holds 300 seated and 150 standing. Both offer a diverse menu of New American food, with everything from sushi to charcuterie to spaghetti (though the downstairs menu is more limited). With so many guests ordering food, shows at Hamilton Live feel a bit more like dinner theater than a typical concert—though the standing room directly in front of the stage does encourage dance parties as the night goes on. Acts run the gamut—including ‘80s rocker Eddie Money, Texas trio Los Lonely Boys and singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb—plus the main restaurant hosts an all-you-can-eat gospel brunch on Sunday.
