It is with great excitement that the owners of the Arlington Drafthouse open up a unique arts theater dedicated to comedy arts. We look forward to serving the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia community with an alternative to the standard comedy club. We are not a restaurant -- we are a arts theater.

The Drafthouse Comedy Theater is styled after a black box arts theater. The theater is located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC on the corner of 13th and L streets NW – 3 blocks north of the theater district and 3 blocks west of the Convention Center. The entrance is located on L Street.

Metro Access
McPherson Square Metro (Closest Metro) - Blue, Orange, Silver

As a black box theater, the Drafthouse Comedy Theater offers concession beer, wine, liquor, and some pre-packaged snacks. There are no minimum purchase requirements for patrons, nor is there table-side service. The theater offers tall ceilings, great sight lines, and an intimate setting. The Drafthouse is also wheelchair accesible. Doors open typically 30 minutes before showtimes and seating is general admission. See specific shows for actual door open times.
