Open Bar Lunar New Year Party!!

*** Event has sold out, tickets will not be sold at the door *** *** I don't know about you, but I have cabin fever BIG time! Looking forward to ringing in the year of the Tiger! ***
UPDATE #6: There's a parking garage on 9th, at the corner of F, right next to Ella's pizza for ~$10. Valet parking is available in front for $20. Also, I just found out Metro will close at midnight tonight, so please plan accordingly!
UPDATE #5: Don't forget, please make sure to arrive before 10:30pm for guys, 11:30pm for gals (also mentioned in the event description). Otherwise, after that, we will each need to pay an
ADDITIONAL $20 to get in. Ask for the "20s & 30s Asian Group" Meetup line! When checking in, you will be listed under your paypal name, so please know it!
UPDATE #4: Open bar from 9 - 10pm. After open bar, drink specials are $5 Amstels, $6 "20s & 30s Asian Green Dragon" drinks, and $7 house wine until midnight!
UPDATE #3: There are only 10 early bird tickets left! Get them now before the price goes up!
UPDATE #2: This is a reminder the early bird special will end before NEXT Saturday, February 6th! To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be unrsvp'ing those that haven't paid by Monday, February 1st. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.
UPDATE #1: The "early bird" ticket price has been lowered to $5 (for anyone who paid the original price, you will be refunded the difference)! Bring a friend, come on out, dance, drink, have fun with new and familiar faces, as we bring in the year of the Tiger! -- Ok, it's time to celebrate the year of the Tiger!
I've rented out the VIP level (top floor called "Chroma") at Ultrabar for our group only! Cover is normally $20, but that is INCLUDED in our ticket price (
until 10:30pm for guys, 11:30pm for gals)! Not only that:


  • We get OPEN BAR from 9 - 10pm (on the VIP floor)

  • We also get our own drink specials (until midnight) after open bar on our own floor (VIP level)

  • We get our OWN line (ask for the Meetup line)

  • We get our own meetup wristbands and glow bracelets, so we can easily identify each other!! =)

From 9 - 10pm, we'll mix and mingle together on the top VIP floor (called "Chroma") for open bar. After 10pm, we'll keep it going all night with our own drinks specials (until midnight) on our floor only! As usual, I encourage everyone to have a goal of meeting 3 new people... and 20s & 30s Asian Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group! Other groups that will be joining us are
AsiaRoom DC Professional Group
Fun Korean and Culture and Language Group
Taiwanese American Professionals - DC TAP
Taiwan Meetup Group
Organization of Vietnamese Professionals
Baltimore Vietnamese Culture Group We've got an early bird special for this event of $5, yup $5! The first 150 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before February 6th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, it will go up to $10. Secure your slot by rsvp'ing yes *and* making payment! Tell a friend, come on out, and let's have a great night of dancing, drinks, and fun while bringing in the new year! =) - J.T. -- Metro Center (red, orange, blue lines; exit towards SW 12th & F Street) is 3 blocks away, and Gallery Place / Chinatown (red, yellow, green lines; exit towards Galleries 9th Street) is 2 blocks away. I suggest using
wmata for travel planning. -- Dress code includes no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no hats, nice sneakers only, jeans are acceptable (just not torn). -- NOTE: Please make sure to arrive before 10:30pm for guys, 11:30pm for gals.
After that, we will each need to pay another $20 to get in. -- Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

  • Click "Pay online now" button above

  • Enter in correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button

  • If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

  • If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Continue" under "Don't have a Paypal account?

-- Since we've paid in advance for this rental, and since there are limited seats, all sales are final. Hopefully you understand we can't have people canceling and requesting a refund, when that spot could have been filled by others. Thanks for understanding. =)

    I wished the New Year party could start a little earlier so i could enjoy it. Since I had to take metro, its hard for me to enjoy, cause the feeling of worry if i miss the last train which is 12 midnight, could give me miserrable.

    The location was good. The line was too long. The open bar time was too short. I only saw one organizer walking around and introduce himself (The taiwanese group).

    Fun, nice atmosphere. A bit hard for new people to meet others due to the nature of the venue, but still a good time!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
