The Iris Lounge is a new hot spot in Tyson with a little something for everyone. You will find drinks, dancing, and billiards. The Lounge transforms into a happening venue with DJ’s spinning tracks when the weekend rolls around.

Meetup members.. for great music and good food, the atmosphere is chic and fun in a relaxed setting. A place you would enjoy.

Will send out contact info closer to the event.

So make sure to RSVP and come and have fun!!   ~Sudarshan

    Thanks Michelle. I've updated the location. Same place, updated title.
    We will not be at the membership-only cigar lounge. We will meet at the Bar which is open to all patrons.. the lounge folks offered assurances they can accomodate our group size.

    Hi everyone, some people have been contacting me about this event and the Rocky Patel Cigar Room. I did not organize this particular event, but thought I'd share the link to this venue and info about the RP Cigar Room:

    http://www.irisloungeva.com/cigar-bar/

    Just to clarify, the Rocky Patel Cigar Room is a members only lounge and if you want access, you can see the various packages and memberships they offer. Also, Rocky Patel is a Cigar Brand - there is no bollywood music playing in this lounge (as many of you also asked about that). Iris Lounge is essentially a bar with a dance floor open to the general public, that plays Western/English music only. The space is big. Hope this helps clarify! Thanks.

      No Rosetta stone is all hype, I started with Pimsluer Urdu, it's an audio method that's much superior.

    Did you get us passes to Rocky Patel Cigar Room? That's a members only lounge...

    January 28, 2013

    • Rhonda L.

      Maybe its only the Cigar Room which is members only? website implies the place becomes a night club weekends, but not specifically that the night club is also members only. still I wonder.

    • Robert

      The cigar lounge is members only... The sushi bar and general admission is $10.

      Agree with Mansi - somewhere in DC or areas of NOVA that are metro accessible is the fairest locations for all
