Welcome to Archibald’s

Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club is conveniently located on “K” Street in Washington, D.C. If you can find the White House then you can find Archibald’s. We offer our customers a full service bar and menu, while enjoying the erotic atmosphere of the best dancers in the nation’s capitol. Our goal is to offer an enjoyable experience in a D.C. Niteclub environment.
