Town DanceBoutique

The District’s largest gay dance club, Town Danceboutique (known as “Town” to locals) is the place meet someone new. Like a gay-American Moulin Rouge, Town is a glittering maze of cabaret, gogo boys and comedy shows that create a sort of what-could-happen-next circus atmosphere. Despite the frenzy, the good-looking bartenders are always friendly, even on Friday evenings when the crowd swells for “Bear Happy Hour.” While Town’s nightclub side is typically only open on Friday and Saturday nights, a recently added outdoor space is now open seven days a week.
