From the team behind Public Bar, Capitale is a hybrid bar, lounge, and nightclub that boasts a grandiose interior, free admission on weekends, and one-of-a-kind happy hour. Located in place of the former K Street Lounge, Capitale seeks to deliver an inviting, unique, and exciting nightlife experience to DC.
There’s really no better way to describe Capitale’s ornate interior than saying it’s the byproduct of a Hollywood/Ancient Greece love affair set at Hogwarts. Featuring four massive bronze columns, snazzy chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and tons of refurbished throwback furniture, the Capitale makes no attempt to conceal its opulence. Also with a 40 foot wooden bar, four 55″ TVs, and a raised platform for girls to dance, Capitale is like SAX Lounge’s stylish, freewheeling little sister – both of which were designed by O’Neill Studios.
Perhaps Capitale’s most distinct feature is its “mobile kitchen” happy hour concept. Through its partnership with the DC Food Truck Association, Capitale invites some of the city’s best food trucks to park directly outside the venue between the hours of 5-9 pm. Customers are encouraged to bring food they purchase from these trucks inside the venue or dine outside on the patio, pairing meals with the in-house drink menu.
