Many people think of a soundcheck as the time when a performer gets their voice and/or instrument ready in the hours or minutes before a concert. District residents may have to expand that definition to include Soundcheck DC, a nightclub on K Street where the music is ready to be heard.

Opened in August 2015, the venue features a top-of-the-line sound system, lasers, two disco balls and LED screens. And more than that, the club brings in local and nationally known DJs to spin the best in hip hop, house & Latin.

At Soundcheck, the vibe is about music and dancing, but maybe also about meeting a new mate while sipping cocktails, spending some time in the roped-off VIP section in back of the club, and enjoying an intimate version of Echostage’s big room nightlife experience.

With years of event experience, our VIP Nightlife team can take your ideas from an inspiration to a fully executed, once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Let us plan a great night out in Washington DC. Call us today: 202 609 7333.
