Inspired by the colorful bars and beaches of Florida and other tropical places, Royal Sands Social Club has officially opened in Navy Yard. This new 14,000 square-foot concept boasts two levels, three bars, multiple private rooms, and clear views of Nationals Park. The most notable feature guests can get excited for is the sunken "swimming pool" bar at the entrance, that also includes a "lifeguard station" DJ booth. The space can hold up to 1,000 guests and also features a large outdoor patio. Guests can also look forward to playing arcade games, taking photos in the photo booth, and playing cornhole. Some menu highlights at Royal Sands Social Club includes Conch Fritters, Gator Bao Buns, Steamed Shrimp Buckets, and much more. Regular hours will begin in the New Year; 202.355.900.
