  • Atmosphere: Sticky Rice’s self-proclaimed “charming atmosphere and bad attitude” have given it a glowing reputation in DC’s H Street Corridor. Its American/Pan-Asian selection of fresh sushi, sandwiches, salads and other entrees make it a foodie favorite.

    Sticky Rice’s DC nightlife offering is great! The vibe, the people, the music, it just embodies a great time. Simple and fun. Everyone is smiling, dancing around to feel-good top 40 past and present, doing shots and loving life. It’s a great place to go out as you are and have fun. It’s definitely not big, and sure as sh*t is no club. What it is, is a bar full of happy people.

Venue Overview

Sticky rice is easy to navigate. When you walk in there’s a staircase leading upstairs to a dining area, bathrooms and possibly a back patio. We weren’t sure if that was on or off limits to patrons.

As you can see, Sticky Rice is just an old fashioned good time!

The main bar area is backed by sinister red lighting, a small standing area that may turn into a dance floor, and in the center, stairs leading to a mid-level sushi bar. At the end of that sushi bar is a little booth. It looks like there should be a bad ass, back door card game going on there.

The space is small and if people are dancing you’re definitely gonna be bumping into people on your way to the bar, to the bathroom or home. It’s all good though, everyone’s nice and well to do.
