Earlier this month, the new nightlife venue Capitale (1301 K Street NW) opened in the space previously occupied by K Street Lounge. Branded as D.C.'s "first ever countryclub meets Hollywood hospitality venue," Capitale is the brainchild of the same men responsible for spots such as K Street Lounge, Play and Public Bar, and aims to be an unrivaled venue by catering to both the nightlife and happy hour crowds. 

Capitale features a look uncommon for most hospitality venues in the District. It's "Great Hall" is accented by the black and white checkered floor and deep green walls. The floor-to-ceiling rustic windows are adorned by enough leather-bound books to make Ron Burgundy himself jealous, and the 40-foot wooden bar has four 55-inch TV screens.

After less than a month of operation, the 4,700 square-foot venue has already attracted several members of the Washington Nationals, Redskins and Wale. Capitale holds 350 people, and is a versatile destination for those looking for more than just a night out.
