What’s Red and Black and a Palace of Wonders?

Rock-and-Burlesque Joint Re-Opens on H

Kicking off by hosting Dangerously Delicious Pies' 8th annual Pie and Rock and Roll Extravaganza on Friday, "licensing issues" and a tragedy at DC9 Red Palace finally opened after delayed its launch.

The two-level club handily consists of a bar on the first floor and a stage upstairs. The new venue (1212 H St. N.E.) merges two adjacent venues -- rock space the Red and the Black; burlesque joint Palace of Wonders.

With an already-packed schedule that includes indie-rock up-and-comers Diamond Rings and P.S. I Love You, and a full kitchen expected to open early next year, the club appears to be off on a good foot after a very shaky start.
