After a long workweek, there’s nothing like unwinding with a cocktail, some dancing and a live band. Here in Washington, D.C., that’s made easy – lots of our local bars serve as live music venues that showcase city bands with dedicated followings.
This weekend, instead of just catching dinner and a movie, head to one of these bars near your RESA apartment that are known for their impressive live music lineups. Make sure you get there early – these are popular spots that are sure to get packed!
