Washington , D.C.

view web site ›'s insider take:

The Black Cat is hipster ground zero in D.C. The music venue has an impressive pedigree: Foo Fighter Dave Grohl is an investor, and it has played host to a veritable who's who of musicians from Pavement to Modest Mouse to the White Stripes. Downstairs in the Red Room bar, the vintage-clad masses sip Pabst and play pinball, while the upstairs venue alternates between indie rock shows and the occasional dance night. Try to catch Mousetrap, the club's legendary Brit-pop party, held the second Saturday of each month. Popular bands tend to sell out, so be sure to check the club's Web site to get tickets in advance.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 8 pm to 2 am, Fridays and Saturdays 7 pm to 3 am, and Sundays 8 pm to midnight.
