Bringing people together from throughout the scene.
Since our inception, The Metro has carried one central focus: to bring those of a like mind together & create a forum for people to connect. Our Seasonal Scene Socials strive to do just that.
All too often we converse at affairs with not much more than a sound-bite. So by design our more casual socials are offered as a chance to connect on a deeper level over drinks, good food, & honest conversation.
“The key to a good party is filling a room with guests more interesting than you.” - Steve Rubell.
TBA - Fall Social (SceneSocials): we're looking into new venues for a Friday Meet & Greet scheduled around this year's DC Fetish Ball (to be announced). Please check back & keep an eye on social media. We'll be making full announcements across the spectrum once we set a date.
Please Note: This is mainstream affair, but 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.

The DC High Heel Race: Hosted annually on the Tuesday before Halloween, 17th Street 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. The main parade kicks off 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 look for the guy dressed 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 for a fun night out. So we hope to see you there!
Xmas Eve at Old Ebbitt: Please join us for our annual gathering at Old Ebbitt Grill as Santa Takes Flight! With well over 100 in attendance, we tend to take over the bar for one of the best socials of the year. So if you don't have plans, or might want to get out of the plans you have, then we hope you'll join us for an awesome night out.
Thu March 14th - The Great Celtic Social (SceneSocials): Somewhere around the 5th century, St. Patrick drove the 'Snakes' from Ireland. Well we're bringing 'em back! So please join us Thu March 14th 2024 as we gather good friends old & new for The Great Celtic Revival…
Our very first event was a party for St. Patrick's Day. It remains an annual favorite, & this year St. Pat’s falls on Friday! This offers the perfect opportunity to bring back Scene Socials as we continue our 15 year celebration.
We'll be doing a take-over of ‘Barrel’ on Capitol Hill (613 Pennsylvania Ave. SE DC). Kickoff is planned for 8:30pm & we'll go 'till close. Nope, not an Irish Bar. As a former bartender at The Dubliner, I can say to Never go to an Irish Bar on St. Patrick’s Day! We plan to be in the main area as you enter. But just in case you don’t see us, check the tasting room downstairs as well. Just ask for Rick & The Metro.
