Summer Sessions at Dupont Live

Live music in the city

Check out the best live music in Washington at the Dupont Live series of free gigs, at The Dupont Circle hotel.

There’s nothing like live music. But sometimes, you don’t want to commit to attending a show. Particularly when it’s a balmy summer’s evening, and all you want to do is sit outside and relax in the dwindling sun, cocktail in hand. Heading to a venue means that you’re sacrificing a precious summer’s night, and who doesn’t want to make the most of the season?

Well, at Bar Dupont you get the best of both worlds. Every Tuesday evening throughout the summer, the patio is taken over with the sounds of amazing musicians. Dupont Live is a series of summer performances by local musicians, who entertain patrons as they relax with a drink.

It’s an excellent spot for people watching – you’ll get to watch the world go by, as well as mingling with other fans of live music and excellent drinks. There’s always a bit of variety with the performers, too – one week might bring a relaxed, RnB style, while the next could be a celebration of all things country.

And best of all? Dupont Live is completely free.

The August sessions have been confirmed, with some great musicians set to play the patio.
