This is an odd gem of a bar in Adams Morgan. They have a lot of fun here while keeping it laid back and relaxed. All people are welcome to kick back and hang out to surprisingly good live music. The atmosphere of the bar doesn't even seem to fit for the locale. If it wasn't so busy, I would... More

We dropped in for a drink and stayed a bit longer due to the band which was decent. The server was very nice and average drink prices.

What a weirdo joint. The drinks watered down, and the food just plain Gross. Lot of trans genders, Gays & Lesbians. Place was dirty and plenty of roaches. If there is a Hell? This is the gateway

They have live music here every night - at the weekend it's blues and the band were fantastic. The dance floor gets crowded but there is another bar upstairs, and tables for sit down service. The waitress did very well as it was really busy. Great selection of cocktails too - definitely make a visit!

Very good bar and vibe for your after dinner crowd. 3 very different floors each with its own distinct character for whatever mood you are in. Loved this place and would frequent it more often if I lived in the area.

I swung by Madam's Organ to catch an old school country act (Human Country Jukebox) and the atmosphere there was excellent. Not fancy, but everyone was having a great time - perfect for a casual night out for a couple beers.

4 of us arrived after 9:30 on a Saturday night and the place was packed . Found some seats in the back bar on the first floor to listen to Skinny Velvet belt out the blues like they had lived it. The place is funky and the drinks are nice size...what more can you expect from a Blues Bar with... More

I started coming here over a decade ago, and while it definitely favors a younger crowd, I still love the "dive bar" vibe of this place. It's dark and the decor is very "Addams Family." But it reminds me of some of my favorite hole-in-the-wall joints in New Orleans, especially Yo Mama's (although the food in New Orleans is certainly... More
