Do you have to, do you have to let it linger? Why, yes.
While bar-hopping all over town is a noble pursuit with many rewards, it can be just as amusing to nestle into one spot for the night and watch how it morphs over the course of an evening. Efficient partygoers know how to fulfill all their debaucherous needs in one place. Settle in for dinner first, then head over to the party side of the joint and get your groove on. Read on for some one-stop spots for all your entertainment needs.
The Sound Table
With a slogan like “Sit Down And Listen,” and the giant green DJ booth that’s front and center, it’s fair to say you’ve been warned. Nestled in the always-interesting Old Fourth Ward, The Sound Table is part bar, part restaurant, and all cool. After dinner upstairs in the main dining room, head downstairs and plop down at the swankily modern bar, bob your head to the DJ, and enjoy one of the many Great Gatsby-esque cocktails such as the Moscow Mule or the Sazerac.

P’cheen provides a sleek setting, delicious food, and a super cool bar scene. The food is fantastic and served til 1 AM on the weekends. And after dinner, sashay over to the bar side and get friendly with the DJ. You’re sure to find it quite easy to spend hours here.

With such a popular bar scene, you might forget that Atkins Park is also a restaurant. Remind yourself soon, and stop by the restaurant side of this beloved tavern. Try the bacon burger with house-smoked bacon, or the house-made bratwurst with kraut and mustard on a pretzel bun. Maybe the shrimp and grits or the Berkshire pork chop is more your game. Regardless, step over to the bar side after dinner, load up the juke box with your favorite songs, and while away the night with Virginia Highland’s best.

Hidden away in the hip Westside, Ormsby’s easily encourages lingering a while and getting playful. With its gourmet spin on snack food, the menu is just as fun as the concept itself. After dinner, grab a drink and settle in for a game of backgammon, bocce, darts, pool, or shuffleboard.

Loca Luna provides the tools necessary for a fun night out – those tools being margaritas, tapas, and sexy Latin music. It’s easy to eat, drink, and dance the entire night away with its carnival of hedonistic pleasures…delectable bites, great drinks, and a few salsa steps around the dance floor. We gave you the tools to party…no use ’em!
