Why Kaplan English students love Washington nightlife

Kaplan English Student's Guide to Washington Nightlife

Home city of US government, Washington DC’s bars and restaurants are the setting for some of the most important meet-ups in the world…it’s no wonder they take luxury and sophistication to a new level.

As a major global political centre, the US capital city of Washington DC attracts thousands of America’s most influential people every week, and the nightlife reflects that. Take Wisdom bar, for example, where the artfully made cocktails have political names like the award winning ‘eminent domaine’ and absinthe is available in several potent varieties.

Elegant Washington restaurant Citronelle continues the theme of quality and refinement, serving beautifully presented French fine dining to a high-class clientele. Later in the night, cutting-edge nightclub Ibiza offers spectacular views of Washington D.C. with its chic rooftop garden; the sky skimming favourite of Washington’s finest. Lima bar, on the other hand, mixes the latest house and chart music with state of the art sound and lighting, for a futuristic finish.

Hang on though, I can hear you wondering, where does a student fit into all this? Don’t worry, once you’ve finished discovering Washington’s most magnificent after-dark locations, there’s still a lot left to explore.

Share hearty American meals with other Kaplan International Colleges English students at the Brickseller dining house and home saloon, including the tasty Brick’s ale Burger. Next, move on to alternative nightlife haven, the Asylum rock n roll lounge, complete with comfortable booths and gothic décor, for your chance to choose the music on the internet jukebox.

Washington is also home to a thriving live music scene, from the atmospheric Blues Alley Supper club to DC9, regularly host of the latest local talent, from rock to hip hop. Club 9:30 is also well worth a visit, featuring some of the US music scene’s biggest new names. The DC Improv comedy club and Ford’s theatre are also firm favourites with students from Kaplan’s Washington English language school.

From rooftop glamour to laid back American home cooking, Washington DC truly has the nightlife to match any mood.
