Caribbean natives and music fans gather at this club for food, fellowship and live
reggae bands. Crossroads nightclub is an oasis of tropical music, food and culture.
Many consider the Bladensburg club the premier Caribbean music venue in the Washington
area. The Carnival-like parties on Friday nights draw people of all ages, including
many couples. Saturday nights, which have a heavier emphasis on reggae dance hall
and rhythm and blues, attract a slightly younger, more stylish crowd. And on every
other night except Monday, the crowd hears a little of everything -- from reggae
and calypso to rhythm and blues and hip-hop.

hip-hop at a honky-tonk, but it's entirely possible at Chick Hall's. It's a comfortable,
relaxing bar that hasn't changed much since its inception, despite the changing neighborhood
