U Street Music Hall Opens

Prominent D.C. DJs, Will Eastman and Jesse Tittsworth, recently opened up a dance club on U Street, in the Cue Bar's old venue, located between 11th and 12th streets.

The idea to open the venue started out as a joke after a friend suggested the idea, according to the Washington Post. But Eastman says that "there wasn't an affordable, no-frills dance club in D.C." and so he jumped at the opportunity when a spot opened up on U Street.

The club's Facebook page says this about the venue:

No pretense, no dress code, no bullshit. Come to dance. Our wooden dance floor in huge and our sound system is bangin'.

The club is partly being run by Eric Hilton and Farid Ali, of Eighteenth Street Lounge, and was designed by Brian Miller, whose designed other D.C. favorites like Josephine in the past.

Though Eastman and Tittsworth will DJ every now and then, they will also host other notable national and international DJs to spin.

According to UrbanDaddy, the bar offers five domestic beers on tap, and grilled cheese or sausage to order. But the main point of the club is to, of course, dance.
