Twelve After Twelve takes over the space previously occupied by the Eighteenth Street Lounge.
Twelve after twelve opens on Wednesday at 21 in the Dupont Circle location, previously occupied by the Eighteenth Street Lounge, which plans to reopen in Blagden Alley. The latest club from the Babylon Group takes its name from both the address (1212 18th Street, NW) and the “angel numbers” (repeating sequences of numbers) contained therein.
Exciting 8,152 square meters with four dance floors (each with its own dedicated DJ booth), five bars and a large outdoor terrace area complete with retractable roof, Twelve After Twelve is designed to offer something for everyone. Music director Saeed Younan strives to promote a diverse mix of musical genres from local artists and bands, including funk, disco, soul, hip-hop, acid jazz, downtempo, reggae, house and live Latin and jazz music.
Despite being served such a wide audience, owner Beau Biabani did not skimp on quality. iDesign Productions was recruited to equip the interior of the room with a powerful Das Audio sound system for the interior and a Function-One system for outdoor decks.
“I’m so proud of our team that has worked so hard to bring this place to life over the course of a year where it was uncertain whether we would ever get to the end of the tunnel,” Biabani said. “It’s been a charity work that has been embraced by DC-based artists, craftsmen, designers, contractors and musicians to keep our city’s musical beat alive.”
