midnightscott2:45am: Don't miss Midnight's 10th annual Halloween Party on Oct. 27!
Here's a reminder: Midnight's 10th annual Halloween Party is now less than two weeks away. As usual, we'll be hosting a costume contest (with hundreds of dollars in cash prizes) shortly after the witching hour; and our guests do the judging, so be sure to bring all your friends out to cheer you on! Midnight resident DJs DuJour and Gleek will be joined behind the decks by Liebchen, who's making a rare visit from NYC. There'll be drink and food specials, courtesy of The Meeting Place, all evening long, plus extra candy, spooky decorations, and lighting. Don't forget, too, that because Midnight is 18+ you can introduce your younger friends to the scene on this most gothic of nights, and that the cover remains a mere $5 (unless you take advantage of our discount admission deals, of course). For full details, keep an eye on http://www.dcmidnight.com or http://www.facebook.com/MidnightDC Hope to see you out on the 27th!

250112:02pm: Alchemy at Phase 1 Dupont for May 24th 2012
In case you have not heard, Alchemy is back!

Two weeks ago we re-opened at Phase 1 Dupont, just 1/2 block of Soho cafe, two blocks west of Dupont Circle, and tonight is our third Thursday back.

Phase 1 has two dance floors plus all kinds of spaces in between them, super-friendly staff and just a great vibe all round. We're thrilled to bring back Alchemy to such a great venue.

Tonight, May 24th, we have the following DJs lined up for you:

Lordship Javier
Loss of Signal
Dirty B

Two dj rooms spinning two different types of music to keep you entertained and the party going. And our very own Kit serving up drinks behind the bar.


Alchemy, every Thursday @ Phase 1 of Dupont (the old Apex/Badlands venue)
1415 22nd St NW, Washington, DC 20037

21+ only
$7 | 2-for-1 before 10:pm
9:00pm - 2:00am


Located just blocks from the Dupont Metro Station. Some street parking & limited parking at the gas station across the street for $10.

Cash only bar, but ATM located inside.

250112:02pm: Alchemy at Phase 1 Dupont for May 17th 2012
After an amazing opening night, we are back to bring you week two of Alchemy in it's awesome new venue. Remember the basics:
9pm - 2am
$7 cover/2-for-1 before 10

Phase 1 of Dupont - 1415 22nd St NW, Washington, DC 20037

The club does not take credit but does have ATMs

Drinks are relatively low priced for DC clubs these days, but also make sure to ask the bartenders about specials for the night as well!

This week Alchemy brings you the following DJ lineup:

Steven Archer (Ego Likeness, Spellbound, Alchemy, chiar0scuro, etc, etc,etc)
Cheetah Dave (XUBERX, DC Midnight)
Du Jour (DC Midnight)
Dirty B (Alchemy, Tronik, Chronos)
2501 (Alchemy, Tronik, Chronos, Psychoburbia)

The format last week of mostly harder electro in the big room and *mostly* oldschool industrial/goth/80's/softer electro in the back seemed to work out nicely, so for now we're going to stick with it.

A note: there was some confusion early on last week about the 2-4-1 admission before 10. If you had trouble with this last week, please speak to Kit at her bar, or else see Tony or Brian this week, and we'll take care of it.
