  • Atmosphere: Ultrabar is a larger multi-level nightclub appealing largely to the 18-30 crowd.  It’s laid out to maximize dancefloor space for those who really like to dance and party, and it definitely gets wild.  Boasting 6 bars, 4 dancefloors, 2 mezzanines, and 30+ VIP tables, Ultrabar really sets the standard for Nightclubs in DC.
Venue Overview

Ultrabar is an interesting character.  The building itself used to be a bank at the turn of the 20th century, and has retained some of the original bank aspects.  Ornate marble accents the bar area wall on the main floor, safe deposit boxes are illuminated behind colored glass in the basement vault (which is now a lounge level), true hardwood floors run throughout the club, and the original trim work and masonry has been fully restored but given a colorful paint job.

Combined with the modern LED lighting, Stainless steel accents, Marble bartops, Glass walls, and modern decor, it makes for an upscale, clean, and inviting atmosphere.

Cooling down the steaming hot dancefloor with freezing cold liquid nitrogen at -320F

Oh, and did I mention the cryogenics? No better way to chill out than liquid nitrogen at -320F!

But don’t let that fool you, this place really gets down.  Each floor has its own music format, a talented DJ on the decks, and a big bar to boot.  And of course, each floor features all the insane lights and pounding sound that you’d expect to see in a club like this.   Each floor also has its own VIP section where private tables can be booked.  The main floor additionally has two overlooking mezzanines with bars so you can have your drink and look down at the dancing people below.
