The 5,000-square-foot clubhouse at 1220 Connecticut Avenue NW comes from D.C. party starters David Chung and Ki Jun Sung, who have previously launched Capitale, Chinese Disco, George, and K Street Lounge, to name a few.
They used those years of intel to craft a space that’s “not a waitlist-restaurant or crowded, delirious bar,” notes Sung.
Backed in part by Bill Dean, the team spared no expense on the Instagram-worthy details. A quartz-topped main bar, a grand chandelier made up of half a mile of custom gold chain links, a dramatic staircase, and ceiling tulle sculpture round out the two-story clubhouse.
The 150-seat spot, with room for 280 standing, will function in both day-to-night settings — open for corporate happy hours, special events, and late-night party people.
Swatchroom restored the historical landmark’s 12-foot soaring arched windows and classic vestibule with period mosaic tile.
