Almaz Restaurant on Historic U Street is New Hot Spot in DC

People are becoming hip to the new hot spot on U Street in DC. Literally two steps from the U Street metro, Almaz Restaurant & Lounge is a traditional Ethiopian restaurant downstairs during the day, but a festive club spot in its upstairs lounge from 10pm to 3am.
Here is what you can find going on every week:
Dancehall Thursdays
It is exactly what it sounds like. Dancehall music, a stocked bar and good people. Oh, and its FREE. Can you beat that? Not sure you can on a Thursday night. (Photo by Liberated Muse member Kuroji Ntu)

Friday Night Hip Hop Cafe
On Fridays, if you are in the mood for Hip Hop from the golden era, check out Almaz with the legendary female DJ Earth 1Ne on the ones and twos....and then on Saturday, check out

Saturday Night Live

Live music, delicious drinks and wonderful food are all at your disposal on Saturdays at Almaz. I am a fan of their authentic Ethiopian food and love the whole atmosphere with friendly service and chill vibe. Events manager Diallo Sumbry, who is part of our Liberated Muse family, coordinates the fab acts that pass through the doors to rock the house.
