Located in the midst of DC’s Dupont Circle, Heist is a caper-theme champagne lounge and private event subterranean venue. The elegantly intimate nightclub is considered to be one of the city’s most glamorous venues. When guests walk through bullhorn doors and down the stairs, they’ll discover a darkened, intimate space featuring black and gold accents. It is quite evident that Heist spared no expense when it came to their decor which includes gold-plated fixtures in the restrooms, a Swarovski crystal ceiling piece above the bar, and a bullet hole lined installation that make up the back wall of the venue. The lounge is split up into a bar area and a dance floor section near the DJ booth. The venue offers both a variety of bottle service options as well as cocktails crafted by Heist’s expert mixologists. Guests are able to get VIP booths as well with the most exclusive one of them being invitation only and located right next to the club’s co-owner Charles “DJ Dirty Hands” Koch’s crown jewel: the luxurious DJ booth which features a large 24-karat gold buffalo skull.
