Midtown Anniversary Party

Editorial Review

It's a busy weekend on Connecticut Avenue as Midtown Lounge marks its first anniversary and upstairs neighbor Midtown Loft celebrates its official grand opening. (Yes, it first opened its doors over the summer.) There's no cover all night, whether you're checking out cover band Road Soda in the laidback Loft or dancing to DJ Spaz's mix of top 40, hip-hop, rock and mashups on the club-like second floor. (You can move back and forth all you want, but beware: Midtown has a dress code and the Loft doesn't. Jeans and a button-down shirt should be fine for guys.) There are drink specials befitting the theme: find $20 buckets of Miller Lite bottles in the Loft; bottle-service patrons downstairs can grab a liter of Grey Goose, a bottle of champagne and a table for six for $250.
