DC: Vinyl and Vino
1432 Pennsylvania Ave, SE
Vinyl + Vino is a four-hour participatory event. The first hour of the event is open turntable – guests are free to bring records for the DJ to spin (all genres are welcomed). This makes each event unique and creates an atmosphere ripe for creative discussion, musical exploration, toe tapping and shoulder swaying.
Following the open turntable portion, there is a brief salon with the featured DJ. The featured DJ speaks briefly about the inspiration behind the set he is about to present (the significance of a particular song, the influence of an artist or musician, the memories behind a record, etc.) The audience is free to ask questions and engage the featured DJ. For the remaining 2 1/2 hours the featured DJ spins a set of his/her choosing.
Wine plays an integral role in Vinyl + Vino. We provide a tasting table featuring an assortment of wines (while supplies last) and a sommelier. We also work with the venue to select a featured wine/wine-based cocktail to offer as a drink special.
