Fodor's Review

The New Vegas Lounge may be a vestige from a grittier, less affluent era, but the Logan Circle club is in its fifth decade of offering live blues every weekend. Vegas Lounge is run by the wife and sons of its late founder, known as Dr. Blues. Friday- and Saturday-night performances by the house ensemble the Out of Town Blues Band attract an eclectic crowd, from veteran blues fans to newer residents who don't know from Muddy Waters–-drawn to the club out of sheer curiosity, or because it's a refreshing cultural and historical diversion in the neighborhood. After all, even in a now-tony neighborhood such as Logan Circle, people still get the blues.
