Last week, April 16, 2015, STK Washington D.C. – Dupont Circle’s high-energy steakhouse and chic lounge – commemorated its one year anniversary with a roaring, 1920s-themed celebration. The RSVP-only affair transported guests to the Prohibition era by transforming the dynamic steakhouse into a modern-day Speakeasy. So we are sending a huge thank you to our big homies at Ink Blot Army for the invite. Attendees were greeted by a champagne toast and enjoyed live performances by New York elite-DJ, DJ Martial, saxophonist Kareem Wilkes, and flapper dancers throughout the evening.
Partygoers were also treated to complimentary 1920s styling and makeup touch-ups courtesy of PURE, AVEDA Salon and Spa before striking a pose for a Prohibition-style “mugshot” in the Onomonomedia GIF booth. The night’s featured cocktails included Cucumber Stiletto (Ketel one citroen, st. germain, muddled cucumber, mint); Hasta Manana (Delon tequila, pernod, pineapple gum syrup, fresh lime, cilantro); Not Your Daddy’s Manhattan (Bulleit bourbon, fernet branca, carpano antica sweet vermouth). Guests enjoyed a myriad of delicious bites including delectable grilled pepper crusted sirloin, tuna and beef tartare, delightful popcorn rock shrimp, truffle grilled cheese, enchanting crab cakes with sriracha mayo, and deviled quails eggs.
During the restaurant’s inaugural year, STK Washington D.C.’s vibe-dining culture has been a magnet for a myriad of celebrities. Star-studded diners in the last year have included Anna Sophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), and singer Ashanti as well as Washington athletic royalty such as John Wall (Washington Wizards), Gio Gonzalez (Washington Nationals) and DeSean Jackson (Washington Redskins).
