Apex first opened for business with the name "Badlands" - a name which enjoyed years of status as one of the country's best gay nightlife destinations. As we celebrated twenty years of service and revealed a dramatic club makeover, the name was changed to... Apex. Always GAY OWNED & OPERATED, we have proudly served the District's GBLT community for over 25 years!
Today, Apex is still DC's most reliable hotspot for gay nightlife. Two levels and seven full service bars create a network of well-defined spaces to suit the diverse elements of our community's nightlife needs. Change the mood of your evening by simply walking from one room to the next.
Dance until your heart is content downstairs in our Main Hall while nationally acclaimed DJ's spin the latest tracks on a state of the art sound system - Top 40, Anthem, Electro, House & Hip Hop music - it's all here. Apex is extremely proud to light up the night with an entirely new lighting design from the experts at "Martin Inc."
