  • L2 Lounge 3315 Cady's Alley NW Washington, DC 20007 United States (map)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Get ready... for the VELVET ROPE


... where ALL guests are VIPs!

#VRE (The Velvet Rope Experience) is a PREMIERE pop-up visual arts showcase that infuses dope artistry, music, and red velvet-flavored eats, while paying homage to well-known music artists, bands or groups.

The first installment of #VRE will serve as a tribute to global icon JANET JACKSON and also highlight her sixth studio album The Velvet Rope.

The album's title The Velvet Rope is a metaphor for emotional boundaries and speaks to introspection, self-love and inclusion and love for others.

Accordingly, the artwork featured in the exhibit will address subject matters such as depression, self-worth, social networking, domestic violence and sexuality, and ultimately represent creative expressions of love for ALL.


Jam with us and be entertained with live art and body art, music, dance performances, mini runway show, and a visual arts exhibition featuring the works of the following DMV-based artists:
