“With L8, we want to create a more down-tempo and comfortable experience five to six nights a week for the young professional crowd with discerning taste. We recognized that Washington needed a new venue for a new type of clientele who wants to dance and party in an elegantly elevated lounge scene.” – Antonis Karagounis

L8, pronounced “late,” is the newest venture from Antonis Karagounis, the nightlife pioneer behind D.C. favorites Ultrabar, Barcode, Soundcheck and Echostage, EDM showcase Glow Productions and event production empire Panorama Productions.

The upscale 3,000-square foot venue will feature two polished chrome bars and 10 tables and can accommodate a crowd of up to 220 patrons. L8’s stunning, shimmering chandeliers and provocative atmospheric lighting enhance a space that’s both sexy and sophisticated for tastemakers in Washington searching for the perfect experience.

The lounge also boasts modern design touches like textured exposed brick, slick lighted mirrors, polished concrete flooring, tufted white leather walls and touches of shiny stylish vinyl against a chic color scheme of dark blue, crimson, regal purple and black. Additionally, fiber optic light fixtures, bubbled ceiling details and angular, minimalist furniture give the lounge a stunning, futuristic vibe.

The eclectic interior and mood lighting create an ideal backdrop for the discerning clubgoer, and the ultra-modern sound system and expansive bars ensure that clubbers will have a high-quality, high-octane experience that will keep them coming back again and again.

To cater to D.C.’s diverse nightlife clientele, guest DJs will spin Top 40 favorites and mash-ups, Latin, international, EDM and hip hop hits nightly from within the club’s swanky glass-encased DJ booth.
