Monday, March 13, 2017

The Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment (OCTFME) recognizes Decades as the March 2017 Location of the Month. 

Decades is a multi-level nightclub facility offering various levels of unique spaces available as media production locations. The three-story retro-themed nightclub celebrates club culture, DJs, and the greatest hits from the ‘80s, ‘90s, 2000s and the present. Graffiti, gadgets, gear and more are also showcased throughout the space, celebrating everything we love about the energy and excitement of club culture and club-friendly sounds of all genres from music’s most exciting eras.

Located at 1219 Connecticut Avenue NW in the space formerly occupied by Midtown, the venue is centrally located in the District’s Golden Triangle neighborhood in Ward 2. The venue offers 12,000 square feet, of retro-themed space, with various rooms that can be utilized for a variety of filmmaking purposes. Each of the club’s four floors reflects a different decade. There's a 2000s themed floor, 80s and 90s themed floor with adjoining "arcade", a Decades of Hip-Hop floor, and a new 90s/2000s "Miami"-themed rooftop currently under construction that will be completed during the spring of 2017. 

Decades also features a dance and special event area with a stage where artists and DJ’s from different eras of music perform. This space also offers eight different VIP experiences and special private rooms. 

Decades is the latest club from the Panorama Productions group that also manages other interesting local clubs, restaurants, concert venues, and bars that also serve as great locations for filming that provides a hip, urban DC nightlife look and feel, including: Echostage, Barcode, Soundcheck, Ultrabar, and L8 Lounge
