Venue Overview

Fur was DC’s mega club before Echostage became the new home for GLOW. The building was once a fur factory, hence the name. With lines known to stretch both sides of the entrance, around the building and down the block; promoter guest lists and bottle service are recommended for fast, easy entry.

Upon entering the club, patrons are provided multiple options. Immediately to the left is a snack bar complete with food, drinks, glow sticks and everything else required to enhance your experience. Straight ahead is a massive bar and to the left, VIP booths. Around the bar is the Martini room, boasting a dance floor, raised DJ booth and private VIP box. Beyond is a doorway leading to the Mafia Room on one side and coat check and patio on the other. The Mafia Room’s dance floor gives way to a staircase leading to a raised bar/lounge area. The patio hosts a stage, DJ booth, tiki bar and roped section of benches and tables to enjoy hookah.

If you’re looking for the biggest room in DC clubbing, stairs to the right of the main entrance lead into the sunken main room, capable of holding 2000+ people. Complete with a birdcage for dancers, bars on either side, a stage on one end and a raised DJ booth on the other, a packed main room at Fur is something you can’t understand until you experience it. Stairways on each side of the room lead to a mezzanine that wraps around the entire floor, providing amazing vantage points to experience the top acts in the world.
