Half Note Lounge has great service, food and ambiance. It's a nice local spot for the grown & sexy! Stop by on Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday night where they have the DMV's most popular live bands playing. Nice intimate venue whether it's for a date or celebration, you are sure to have a great time!

We have never been to Half Note before, so we decided to check it out. When we called to make reservations for about 30 people, they wanted to charge us $1,200+ for the private room.

Half note is a jazz bar with a Sunday brunch that will knock your socks off. They brunch consist of waffles, crab legs, fried fish, baked fish, fried chicken, baked chicken, mac n cheese, grits, an omelette station and more. You would think your grandmother was in the kitchen cooking just for you.

I took the young lady I was dating to the Half Note for her B-day in 2009. The live band was great and the place was packed. My food was pretty good. The waitress was very accommodating in bringing out the B-day cake as I had requested. I think they helped to make the night special for her.

Great for couples who want to go and dance. This place can get very crowded at times, so, get there early and get a seat. Most people get there early and sit around and hoard chairs for friends that aren't there.

Took my girlfriend here for dinner, and she loved it. Even though she almost spilled our drinks on us. Food was good, the band was great, it wasn't to crowded, just a great atmosphere.

I lived 5 mins from this lounge and lve to visit "just because". Great drinks (lil pricey) but o well. The food is good also. It gets crowded early. If you want a seat get there before 6:30p. Also, they have bands on the weekends.
