What do you get when you mix old school hip hop, a nice bar in a good location and food and drinks?? A great new bar to enjoy! Dyanna and I recently checked out 1920dc. We absolutely loved it!! 1920dc is located on 9th Street NW, just off of U Street.

The vibe is nice and the patrons were friendly. With past episodes of Soul Train and old school hip hop playing, the environment is set up for fun. You may even break out with your favorite dance or two-step hearing one of your old favorite songs.

This is currently a soft opening for 1920dc. Everything served is just a sample of what the actual menu will be. The grand opening date is set for August 5th.

Of course, you know that Dyanna and I had to sample their offerings. We started off with their rum punch for $5. It was good. (A kind warning: The rum punch is strong…so be careful.) We also tried a drink called The Beautiful. Our great bartender, Jeremy, made it special for us. It was smooth and tasty and made of Hennessy, Grand Marnier, pineapple juice and a splash of OJ.

They are currently running happy hour specials of $5 Grand Marnier, Patron and rum punch.

Food wise, Dyanna had the burger with a fried egg and cheddar cheese. She raved about how flavorful the burger was. She let me try a piece and I agree; it was delicious. The burgers are served with tater tots, which are so yummy! I’m not sure what they do with them, but they taste great. I got an order of buffalo wings. Jeremy told me  the sauce was similar to mambo sauce, so I was sold. The wings and the sauce were great. I will definitely be going back for the wings.

Overall, The High Life definitely recommends you give 1920dc a visit. It’s a great bar with a good vibe, food and drinks. What more can you ask for? Let us know what about your experience at 1920dc.
