Thirsty at 3 a.m.?

By Fritz Hahn

Wondering where you'll be able to party until 4 a.m. in the days before Barack Obama's inauguration? The District's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration has released the names of bars and nightclubs that received permission (and paid $250 a night) to stay open late between Friday the 16th and the wee hours of Wednesday the 21st. What follows is a selected list, organized by neighborhood for easier browsing.


Now, be warned that just because a venue received a late license doesn't mean it'll be open until 4 every night, or that it'll even be open to the public. Gin and Tonic, for example, plans to stay open until 4 only on inauguration night. DC9 will only be using its extended hours on Tuesday night, when the club is hosting a special edition of its Taint party. Lotus Lounge will be closed for private parties on Saturday and Monday, though owner Michael Romeo says that anyone can drop by on other days. (Update: Gin and Tonic has decided to be open every night.)

A number of other places applied for licenses by Wednesday's deadline, but the Alcoholic Beverage Regulatory Administration says they still need to set their schedules with neighborhood groups based on their existing voluntary agreements. These nightspots, which need to work out agreements by Jan. 15 if they want to use the extended hours, include Shadow Room, the Republic, Marvin, McFadden's, Sticky Rice and Layla Lounge. As we hear about changes, we'll add them to this list.

Fritz, any word on the H Street NE bars?

Joe Englert told me that none of his bars are applying. Fritz Wood at Rock and Roll Hotel said that "it's a waste of money. 90 percent of your fights and problems happen after 3 a.m."

The only place that I know of on H Street that's staying open until 4 a.m. is Palace of Wonders. Sticky Rice applied, so they may also get the extension.

Sticky Rice will be keeping extended hours on Monday and Tuesday nights, and possibly Sunday as well.

Cheers!
