There are a range of enlightening if not hedonistic diversions to enrich the man about town; even after hours (which can at times seem impossible in this buttoned-down capital). There’s amusement to be had at some of these interesting establishments:

The Camelot Showbar

A multi-level gentlemen’s club where adept belles adroitly delight the eyes on stage in impressive displays of agility and good looks.  Open for lunch, dinner, and imbibing. 

Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club

A refined gentleman’s lounge replete with friendly talent. The coziness of the atmosphere makes every stage performance satisfyingly intimate. Eatables and drinkables served for lunch and dinner till late.

Mpire Club

A high-ceilinged clubroom where angels ascend and descend from the heavens with stunning dexterity. Cocktails and small nibbles accompany the extraordinary sights from lunch until the wee hours of the morning.

MGM National Harbor

All-inclusive resort and casino where one can take in a show, dine on the fare of celebrity chefs, or try his hand at games of chance.  Like its Las Vegas fountainhead, but with the trademark Washington graces.

Good Guys Club

Casual neighborhood tavern featuring a motley lineup of engaging entertainers. Beers, spirits, wine, and bar fare served for lunch, dinner, and late night.


Shiny new burlesque venue with ground-to-rooftop levels of performance space for the lovely paragons that bring it to life. Serving drinks and visual feasts from afternoon until late.
