Address: 1823 L St. NW

The name alone lets you know that fun is going to be scarce. Once you find this place (it's in the basement of a hotel), you'll realize that if you wanted to drink in a basement apartment, you should have gone to a basement apartment. Sticking with the apartment theme, the layout of this place is terrible—like the apartment you've just moved into, where you've tossed your shit everywhere, glad only to be there. This place is designed like that, but you won't be anything close to excited. Still, if you want to sing about your troubles, karaoke can be your release. Singing about things that trouble you can be therapeutic.
