Since the Phases are the only girl bars in DC, the rest of my list is made up of gay boy bars I consider lesbian-friendly, based on the highly specific algorithm of “I’ve been there on a date” or “I’ve been involved in lesbian PDA there without feeling uncomfortable.” Seems as good a rubric as any to use, right? Cobalt/30 Degrees (17th Street NW, corner of 17th and R) I’m at Cobalt all the time. And despite many stupid things I have done there, they always welcome me back with open doors.
Cobalt is located in the heart of the Gayborhood and is one of the most iconic gay bars in DC and is considered “a place to be seen” with “eclectic DJs” and “electric parties.” The first floor is a restaurant called, inventively, Level One.
Some of the commenters on Carmen’s post said it’s not a great place to be if you don’t appear obviously gay.
Basically, Phase is great, especially because of its history and Jell-O wrestling, but not an ideal locale for fans of pop music and a clubby atmosphere.
The first thing you should know is that there’s heaps of gay bars for men and not so much for women.
