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.

Mango Caffe

Mango Café has a cozy, neighborhood vibe with its offerings of international cuisine. They also transform to fit your special event needs. Guests sip on house creations like “the bomber,” and the general manager admits, it’s “loaded with more liquor than you can handle.” Drama queens can bicker over coconut shrimp with their drink of choice: melon drama. Live bands and karaoke nights are showcased, and this summer they will host outdoor concerts.

Surf Club

Claiming itself to be one of the last-standing honky-tonks, Chick Hall's Surf Club is really a mix of everything, and every kind of music. You wouldn't expect to hear 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 around it.
