Cobalt has long been a mainstay on the District’s gay-centric 17th Street Corridor. It’s technically three entities: the appropriately titled Level One, a restaurant; 30 Degrees, the second-floor lounge; and Cobalt, a bar on the third floor. But locals simply call it Cobalt. At times it can feel a bit long in the tooth, but it routinely hosts popular parties and remains a top choice for bottomless (drag) brunch in Dupont Circle. The most popular night is Thursday when the long-running Best Body Contest plays to an overflowing crowd, but Cobalt also holds a popular lesbian party once a month and gogo dancers make regular appearances weekly.
