Because GW is located in the city, off-campus bars are often as much a part of the social scene as on-campus parties are. Party nights are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. GW traditionally has offered few Friday classes, so students go out late on Thursday evening. Many students frequent a local bar—Lindy’s and Front Page are good choices—around 5 or 6 p.m. for specially priced drinks. After a little happy houring, students usually go home and rest, then get ready for a night of bar or club hopping around 11 p.m. Freshman year, most students go to frat parties or other on-campus get-togethers on weekends. Freshmen also go to clubs because most allow students ages 18 or older.
Nightlife in Washington is fantastic, with so many clubs and bars to explore that cater to different people’s preferences. GW students tend to frequent the same bars, which means students see other students wherever they go. The edge of Dupont Circle is one of the most popular areas for GW students to hang out and bar hop. For students not interested in the bar or club scene, there are other options. Hit up a friend’s apartment party, take in a show, go to a movie or jazz club, hang out at a coffee bar—the possibilities are endless. Washington offers top-notch nightlife, whether you’re looking for a loud bar or a late-night music fest.
