Josephine will be undergo a major transformation in preparation to host Washington DC’s longest running party! Changes will involve:
◊ Glow Thursdays at Lima provide a high-end, high-energy atmosphere.

◊ Glow’s recent deal with Live Nation brings live acts to the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD.
◊ Glow Fridays at Josephine aim to bring a spirited luxury to DC lounges.
In 1999, partners Antonis Karagounis and original resident DJ Pete Kalamoutsos launched Glow at Zei club. Their venue partner was Zei Director of Promotions Dave Karim. The venture lasted until Zei’s closing in 2001.
Antonis and Dave were reunited a year later at the legendary MCCXXIII where they hosted a Tuesday college party for the next 7 years. Pete took over a residency at Spank, the club’s VIP as level.
Since 2005 Karagounis has been a partner in top DC nightlife destinations including Lima Restaurant & Lounge, Ultrabar Nightclub, and Barcode Restaurant & Lounge. Karim went on to open Josephine, Policy, Current and Lost Society. Kalamoutsos cemented relationships with the top DJs and booking agencies in dance music.
The Glow brand gained international recognition in 2010 when Armin van Buuren and David Guetta officially named Glow events their favorite in the world. A recent partnership with Live Nation now allows Glow to expand its reach to the US mainstream.
Given the history, combined with dance music’s emerging mainstream appeal; the concept of Glow Fridays at Josephine was inevitable. This September three entrepreneurs of DC nightlife reunite to bring one of the world’s best parties to one of DC’s finest lounges.
