Metro Events

From gala events to private parties, The Metro hosts a variety of functions throughout the year. All are lavish affairs offering top DJ’s, great entertainment, & premium bar service. Held at some of the area's best venues, we always draw a high energy crowd & roll well into the morning hours.

Metro Events vs. Underground Parties => The Metro hosts some of the region's most anticipated & respected affairs. These are full scale balls & include the nationally recognized DC Fetish Ball, Black&White Ball, DC eXotica, & Metro Spring Formal (an annual theme night). We call this aspect of our endeavor "Metro Events." Anything planned will be posted here as well as our Facebook Group, Fetlife, & Twitter.


Please note that our schedule is changing so please check back as things begin to evolve.

To round out the calendar, we also host Underground Parties (see page). These are focused as more exclusive invite-only play parties which carry a fully explicit nature. By design they are presented as a swinger / kink crossover.

We put our heart & soul into everything we do, & we love bringing people together to create a bit of magic. So we hope you'll join us for our next event not to be missed!

Richard A.D, & The Metro Underground Present...

The DC Fetish Ball:

Sun Oct. 7th (Columbus Day Weekend): Bringing together some of the scene's very best DJ's, models, fashion, & national talent w/ an incredible play space in one of the city's most lavish venues. No doubt, we bring a level of twisted delight worthy of the Nation's Capitol!

DC eXotica:

Thank you for one of DC's biggest & best balls for the alternative lifestyle! Changes are in the works & updates for a new direction are coming soon. Please check back as our schedule begins to evolve.

The Metro Spring Formal: 

We'd like to thank all those who make it out for an incredible evening of unforgettable beauty, intrigue, & sheer possibility. Changes are in the works so updates will be coming soon. Thank you!

Co-Hosted Events (Other Events):  In addition to your own main events, we also co-host or are involved w/ several key affairs of definite note. These include but are not limited to: Carnival at Swampfest (hosted at Pennsic w/ Clan Die Fledermaus), Krampusnaught DC, as well as others.

Select Happy Hours / Casual Gatherings: In addition to our main events & parties, The Metro also hosts a number of happy hours & casual gatherings throughout the year...

X-mas Eve at Old Ebbitt:  All too often we converse at parties or events with not much more than a sound bite. So by design this is NOT a scene-based event. In fact, that’s the whole point. Rather, it’s a chance to gather people of a like mind & truly connect over drinks, good food, & honest conversation. So if you don’t have plans (or might want to escape the plans you have), then please join us at the Old Ebbitt Grill for a chance to unwind & connect before the holiday mayhem.


The Old Ebbitt Grill ( flag ship for the Clyde's organization, located at 675 15th St. NW DC.  We gather around 8-30-9pm until close at 2am. KEEP IN MIND THAT THERE ARE 3 BARS - we try our best to be at the main bar just to your right as you first enter, but often this gets crowded (also check out the back section of this bar which loops around to the back). Our second choice is a bar located in the room immediately to your LEFT as you enter. Worse case scenario, we might be in the back room all the way to the back of the restaurant.


If you're not sure who you're looking for, just look for the stuffed white bear w/ the "Naughty" Santa Hat. And please feel free to invite & bring as many friends as you might want to include.

The DC High Heel Race:  Hosted annually the Tuesday before Halloween, 17th St. NW brings one of DC's greatest traditions! If you've never been, it's as close as DC comes to Mardi Gras. And make no mistake, it's for everyone (THOUSANDS go to this thing). Festivities run for 4 blocks between R & Church St. along 17th NW DC. Festivities generally begin around 7pm & the race runs at 9pm (but it's really all about the parade).


We meet in front of Floriana's on the corner of 17th & Q St (it's a good spot w/ a patio bar & access to restrooms). If you're not sure who you're looking for then I'll be dressed in costume as Ratatouille: white chef coat w/ Remy on my shoulder & a black kilt.  We're always looking for a good opportunity to bring people together, & this is an amazing event to get people together for a fun night out. So we hope to see you there!

Please Note: all our gatherings bring together various cultures of the overall scene. So please come with an open mind, a desire for fun, & conduct yourself in a respectful manner to all who are present.
