THE HATCHET'S 2015 BEST OF NORTHWEST

number nine

BEST GAY BAR

Location: 1435 P St. NW

Runners up: Town, Nellie’s

 

Number Nine added a sleek yet warm spot to D.C.’s gay nightlife scene when it opened in 2011 near Logan Circle. With simple rules – no dress code, no theme nights – and a playlist of low-tempo electronic music, Number Nine is the kind of place you always go back to.

 

Mixed drinks cost between $8 and $11, and some specialities include a Lavender Lemon Drop and the Berri Cooler. On weeknights, happy hour is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
