Here’s the list of bars and restaurants that can operate around the clock on inauguration weekend

This inauguration might be a watershed for D.C.’s nightlife scene.

In January 2009, bars were allowed to stay open until 4 a.m. on the weekend preceeding the inauguration. This time around, they’re getting even more freedom: From Monday, Jan. 14 through Monday, Jan. 21, the D.C. Council is allowing some restaurants and bars to stay open 24 hours a day and serve alcohol until 4 a.m. (Service usually stops at 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and at 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.)

More than 160 restaurants and bars applied for permission to stay open, and 154 were approved. (The places that didn’t make the cut had restrictions in their operating hours written into “voluntary agreements” signed with neighbors.)

Being authorized to stay open late doesn’t guarantee that a bar will definitely be open around the clock for a full week, or that you can just pop in for drinks at 3:30 in the morning. It just means an establishment can stay open later if the owner chooses, or if the place is booked for a special event.

Here’s the list by the numbers:

1: Museum. (The Newseum)

2: Places that are already open around the clock. (The Coupe and, on weekends only, Kramerbooks)

2: Brewpubs, for when you’re craving fresh beer after an inaugural ball. (Gordon Biersch and District Chophouse)

3: Strip clubs. (Good Guys, Stadium Club and the House).

4: Bars that offer skee-ball. (Rocket Bar, the Iron Horse Tap Room, the Pour House and Buffalo Billiards.)

5: Sushi bars, because nothing says “late-night eats” like raw fish. (The Hamilton, Oya, Sei, Sticky Rice and Cafe Asia.)

5: Gay and lesbian bars and restaurants. (Town, Bachelor’s Mill, Phase 1, Phase 1 of Dupont, Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse)

6: Live music venues that will keep the music playing. (the 9:30 Club, DC9, the Hamilton, the Rock and Roll Hotel, Tropicalia and Madam’s Organ.)

7: Large dance clubs that can host DJs until dawn. (Ibiza, Ultrabar, Phase 1 of Dupont, U Street Music Hall, Town, Lux Lounge, Echostage.)

8: Bars known for shaking up memorable cocktails. (Firefly, Bourbon locations in Glover Park and Adams Morgan, Jack Rose Dining Saloon, Hank’s on the Hill, the Willard’s Round Robin Bar, the W Hotel’s P.O.V. rooftop bar and the Jefferson Hotel’s Quill.)

9: Irish pubs pouring Guinness in the wee hours.

15: Bottle-service joints that take reservations for tables. This includes standbys like the Park at 14th, Bar 7 and Josephine as well as newer spots the Huxley and Opera.

17: Approved bars along or near the U Street corridor. We’re stretching the definition a little to include places like El Centro D.F., DC9 and Town, which aren’t exactly on U Street, but it still shows that the area will remain the centerpiece of inaugural celebrations. By contrast, H Street has five locations (six if you include Jimmy Valentine’s), Capitol Hill has 10 and the stretch between Dupont Circle and Farragut Square has 14.

21: Hotel bars that will be staying open. If you’re looking for a place for a late-night or early morning drink, hotel bars are the way to go. Some are known for their bar scene (The W, the Jefferson, Hotel Madera’s Firefly, the Liaison’s Art and Soul), while others are more divey (Harry’s at the Hotel Harrington, the pub at the L’Enfant Plaza Hotel).
