A new dance club will bring Britney Spears, Coolio and Madonna to Dupont later this week.
Decades, a dance spot centered around “retro” music from the 2000s, 1990s and 1980s, is set to open in the former Midtown space at 1219 Connecticut Ave. NW on Thursday, according to managing partner Antonis Karagounis. The club had its soft opening over the weekend.
The club is meant to harken back to the days of D.C.’s long-gone club scene, Karagounis said.
“It’s supposed to bring back the old-school vibe of the multi-level, multi-DJ clubs that defined D.C. Nightlife in the ’90s and 2000s,” Karagounis told us in July. “Decades is supposed to recreate that vibe and atmosphere and give clubgoers a new weekend hangout where they can party and be part of various decades of nightclub music.”
Decades is scheduled to kick off its regular event lineup by hosting a “Throwback Thursday” event on Nov. 10 at 10 p.m. The party will feature three DJs, drink specials, games and “hip-hop from all eras and more blasting through the world class Funktion One sound system available on all four floors.”
