Las Vegas was the main inspiration or Shadow Room, a city the team felt set the bar for hospitality in the nightclub industry. But a carbon-copy of a Vegas club wasn't the endgame here; as CEO Swaptak Das told Metromix, "We wanted to build something that doesn't exist anywhere in the world." And in their K Street club, far from the neon lights of the Vegas Strip, they've certainly upped the ante—Shadow Room is outfitted with novel technologies designed to enhance the clubgoer's experience.
One example: you're on the crowded dance floor. You're warm, and there's nothing but ice cubes left in your drink. You look over to the bar, where there's a crowd waiting to put in their orders. But instead of joining the queue, you take out your cell phone, log into your Shadow Room account, and order (and electronically pay for) a drink. They'll text you when it's ready, and in the meantime, you can just keep dancing.
For those who have reserved tables, the club's Nteract touchscreen table order system takes this idea even further. According to The Washington Post, each table's tablet can be used to "order a drink, request tunes from the DJ, pay a bill or ask a valet to retrieve your car." Though these do-it-all devices would seem to be enough of a draw, tables have loads of other features as well, including HD televisions, digital surround sound, two computers, and Xbox 360.
When not enraptured in the club's digital ambiance, revelers can get back to that aforementioned dance floor, where DJs spin an eclectic mix of hip-hop, house, Top 40, rock, and ironic recordings of fax-machine transmissions.
Dirty Martini keeps spirits high throughout Dupont Circle, welcoming patrons to a setting that "is as much restaurant as it is nightclub," according to Gayot. The doors remain open until as late as 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, which provides plenty of time for guests seeking to unwind with quick bites or celebrate with potent mixed drinks. Using small-batch spirits and seasonal ingredients whenever possible, the bartenders shake, stir, and mix a number of signature cocktails. Small touches such as housemade ginger syrup or rose petals can lend flavorful or aesthetic flourishes to the drinks, although the selection also includes neat pours of everything from single-malt scotches to crystalline vodkas. For the food menu, the chefs also use local and seasonal ingredients to create unconventional interpretations of classic standbys. They flash sauté otherwise traditional shrimp ceviche, and spring rolls brim with braised oxtail. Brazilian-hardwood accents and a wall of whitewashed brickwork lend a hint of rustic spirit to the lounge-like space's modern ambiance. Semicircular banquettes and custom-upholstered booth seating line the main floor's wooden floorboards, catching the light of the cylindrical pendant lamps and lamp-like fixtures. Up a short flight of stairs, the mezzanine level includes a handful of tables and plenty of open space for games of full-contact charades.
Skilled mixologists serve up complex drinks at Wisdom, a dark yet charming cocktail parlor where heavy draperies and ornate lights hang along exposed brick walls. Their drink menu runs the gamut from wine and imported beer to a vast selection of authentic absinthe. Bartenders also mix up non-alcoholic "mocktails," with flavor profiles that are as interesting as their alcoholic counterparts. Events such as trivia night pit martinis against memories, and yappy hours let dogs lounge on the patio and play poker while owners sip libations. Wisdom also dishes up tasty tidbits such as chocolate beer waffles doused in maple syrup or bacon waffles covered in bourbon and caramel apples.
