Work your way past the red carpet, bouncers, and guest list. A softly illuminated hallway gives way to an energetic party inside. The Huxley arose from a 4,600 square foot space once called home by a television studio. If one word had to describe The Huxley it would be luxury. No detail is overlooked: careful attention went into furnishing of two unique rooms, materials used throughout the venue, standards at the door and so much more.
Step into the main room (Ballroom) and you are greeted by 14 foot finished ceilings, crystal chandeliers and ample dancing room encircled by VIP tables. Mirrors are surrounded by curtains to complete the “ballroom” look while a raised DJ booth provides an unimpeded view of the DJ from the crowd. The staff is efficient but friendly.
Enter the “Library.” It would be every college students’ dream come true if this were how libraries worked. An intimate room with a relatively large bar seems the staple of many lounges in DC Nightlife. Most do not however have a bookshelf behind the bar complete with books. Attention to sound, lighting and decor are paid throughout the venue for a well rounded feel despite the split personality of separate rooms.
