Those who hold the key to Mari Vanna restaurant on a Monday also hold the key to an evening of special treatment.
Mari Vanna is kicking off its Key Monday series on March 11 from 9 pm until 1 am. Patrons who hold a key to the restaurant — identified by the signature Russian nesting doll keychain — are invited to head to the third floor cocktail lounge for an evening of music (provided by DJ Ivan) and a glass of free champagne. (Sorry, lads, the bubbly is only for the ladies.)
DC Eater reports that Mari Vanna hands out the coveted keys to a select number of VIPs, restaurant regulars and friends.
However, Mari Vanna says those without keys should ring the doorbell and see what happens. “With a little charm, you just might squeeze in.”
Mari Vanna is at 1141 Connecticut Avenue NW. The restaurant serves house infused vodkas and authentic Russian cuisine.
