Lace, Clubs, Washington DC
© Worn Creative,

Linda McAllister arrived in Washington expecting to find a plethora of lesbian bars, but instead encountered a rather barren nightlife scene. She opened Lace in late 2008, as a restaurant and lounge. The clientele is mostly (not entirely) African-American, and if your brother is straight, he’s welcome too. Decor is unmistakeably feminine, though.
