A New Outdoor Pop-Up Lounge Is Coming To Kennedy Center This Weekend

HEIST and the Kennedy Center are bringing clubbing back to Washington DC!

Looks like the endless nights of flashing lights, loud music and partying are finally making their way back to the District! The hottest new club in town? The Kennedy Center. The performing arts center is teaming up with the oh-so-popular club HEIST DC to bring Washingtonians the city’s first post-pandemic nightclub!

Located on the terrace of Kennedy Center, HEIST’s pop-up nightclub echoes the vibes of the club’s original Dupont’s Circle upscale location. The outdoor club features a “glamorous and exclusive design” with live DJ performances, 20 “Ultra VIP cabanas” and 40 VIP tables overlooking the Potomac River, according to Heist’s release.

The cabanas will seat up to 6 people and offer 5 tiers of experience. Their “Moët & Chandon VIP Table” ($240) includes a  complimentary bottle of Moët & Chandon Ice Champagne, a snack platter and Red Bull Package. Their most expensive cabana, the “Felony VIP Cabana,”–which you can get your hands on for $1000–offers guests bottles of their choice, complimentary snack and dessert platters, exclusive skyline views, private elevator access for you and your guests and 10 ft of space in your own private cabana.

In order to ensure social distancing guidelines, attendees will be required to stay seated while they’re at the venue and not wander from table to table. Additional measures will include temperature checks for ticketed patrons, artists and staff, as well as the obligatory use of face coverings for staff and artists who will perform “in a socially distanced matter with masks.”


The pop-up lounge that’s making its debut on Friday, October 3, sold out its opening night just 15 minutes after going on sale this past Monday. If you haven’t gotten a chance to snag your tickets, don’t worry, you’ve still got time to get them for next week!

Tickets for HEIST x Kennedy Center’s event will be going live on Tuesday, October 6, at 10 am and can be booked online on HEIST’s website.
