Please join us for our exclusive DC Lesbian Happy Hour at the Ven at Embassy Row Hotel in Dupont Circle.

Where to find us: We will be at the hotel's art gallery space for this event. When you enter the hotel lobby, walk straight ahead and you will see stairs leading down to the gallery. The art gallery has its own separate bathrooms and is a nice exclusive space that normally is rented out for $10,000 per event.

There will be a special bar in the space that will serve beer, wine, canned cocktails, and simple mixed drinks (rum and coke, gin and tonic, etc.) only.

You will still be able to purchase other drinks at the main bar.

Please note that while our name is "Lesbian Happy Hours", we welcome all female-identifying women who love women... and our allies.

Address: the Ven at Embassy Row Hotel in Dupont Circle, 2015 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036

What is included in the $15 price of admission:

  • 3 hours exclusive use of the space (from 7-10pm)
  • Food included (usually there is a nice mix of vegan/vegetarian/meat light appetizers and cookies)
  • Happy hour specials to include $5 draft beers, $8 canned cocktails and $10 select wine specials (red, white, sparkling, and rosé)
  • There will also be games (including cornhole) and karaoke (which will be moved from the main room to a side room)

Stoplight name tags will be available. Red means you are unavailable, yellow means it's complicated, green means you are single... and presumably ready to mingle.

Valet Parking is available (limited when the hotel is at full occupancy). Please call the hotel if you are interested in the cost of parking. Street parking is also available and of course the metro is nearby.

21+ Only. Please be vaccinated (while the hotel does not check for proof of vaccination, we ask that you be vaccinated if you are attending)!

Dress: Casual, jeans, after work wear, dressy.

See you then! Melinda
