The Venue

The skinny on local clubs

June 28, 2007|By ALLIE SEMENZA

DAR Constitution Hall This National Historic Landmark, owned by the Daughters of the American Revolution, is a beautiful indoor space for a concert.

Where -- 1776 D St. N.W. in Washington.

Call -- 202-628-1776

Web site -- dar.org/conthall

Notable -- With high, painted ceilings and seating for 3,702, this midsize venue is a great place to catch a host of events, which have ranged from speeches by the Dalai Lama and Art Buchwald to performances by Bruce Springsteen and the New York Philharmonic.

Vibe -- No matter who you're seeing, the hall setting will make you feel classy.

Crowd -- Depending on the event, the crowd will vary, but, for the most part, unlike some venues, the audience is there to see the performer, not to attend a social gathering.

What to wear -- Again, it depends on the event. If it's a pop music concert, don't worry about dressing up. If you're seeing the president speak, that's another story.

Music -- Coming events include the Whispers and the Summer Funk Festival 2.
