Best Place to Hear 2Pac and The Bee Gees Played Back-to-Back
Decades DC, one of the city’s newest nightclubs, is a throwback to the good old days when the cool club kids actually danced and didn’t just pop bottles and look, er, cool. Decades mainly plays music from the ’80s, ’90s, and early 2000s, and they have successfully recaptured the spirit of the era before pretentious VIP sections became de rigueur. The retro party idea isn’t new to the city. Club Heaven & Hell in Adams Morgan had a long-running ’80s dance party night, but the Decades team has taken the approach to another level. Managing partners Antonis Karagounis and Arman Amirshahi thoughtfully decorated the interior with portraits of 2Pac and Biggie, working pinball and video game machines, and other detailed nostalgic flourishes. The concept works: The venue has three floors to satisfy your preference for Britney Spears, classic house, or old-school hip-hop. Decades has attentive hostesses and bartenders who cater to a culturally diverse crowd of all ages and experienced DJs that spin all the right club anthems and keep the dance floors packed.
