What can you find in Georgetown other than hipsters and contaminated ground soil?  A great music venue and bar in the Mix Lounge.  I saw three great local bands play:  Crown Aruba, Open Choir Fire, and [moans]...all three very different bands, but a great show nonetheless.  Here's what impressed me: the sound!  A smallish venue with big, open walls and the sound was actually quite decent.  The place has a great decor and the bar has PBR tallboys for $2- can't beat that.  Great vibe, good peeps working the door and a nice video montage behind the bands = a great night.  I would definitely make the trip to see a show or even hang out- though it is a little tricky to find the first time around...but, there was parking on the street, which is a plus.

I'm not sure what time they normally open for business, but since it was a Saturday night they were having a show. We negotiated with them beforehand, and they were able to waive the cover charge for our entire group since we were only going to be there for a drink or two and there were over 15 of us. 

They were super friendly and made our group feel very welcome. It would definitely be great to come back and stay for a while. Oh, and they don't serve liquor - only beer and wine (no problems there for us).

My band rehearses across the st. and have played a couple gigs here in the last couple months.  We all love playing here because the sound guy, Dave, is awesome.  Is the perfect sound guy for that space and will make you feel like you're on a pro stage.  Too bad the place isn't on capitol hill where it could get a lot of people to come in by means of foot traffic, but it's a great spot.  The bartenders are nice people and the balcony is as cozy as it gets.  I can't wait to play here again and see what renovations they put in for their grand opening this weekend.

I am officially a fan of this swanky, but funky, edgy but not off putting awesome space. This is the perfect place for private parties and VIP shows. Because the size creates a cozy atmosphere as a guest you really get the feeling you "were on the list" so to speak.
