While away the last days of summer on the War Room's rooftop deck, arguably the best on Capitol Hill. Since opening in spring 2005, this handsome spot (masterminded by Stuck Under the Needle's Marcus Lalario and Graylife's Brian Rauschenbach) has maintained some of the best weekly and monthly parties in town. Breakdance crew Circle of Fire's Soul City Monday night draws serious B-boys and the occasional live percussion ensemble, while Yo! Son on Saturdays caters to the bling-and-heels set. With a central spot, urban-classy decor, and inspired bookings, the War Room stays fresher than fresh.
