WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9)--- At KABIN Lounge, the disco night club meets après-ski lounge at Dupont Circle. Many celebrities and DC notables such as the Celtic's Jeff Green, Top Chef's Spike Mendelsohn, and former DC Mayor Marion Barry gathered for the launch, Saturday, June 29, 2013.

Owners Kunal Shah, Vinoda Basnayake, Dustin Huynh and Rajeev Subramanian were all in attendance at the new lounge this past weekend.
The 3,200 square-foot, 252-person lounge is homage to culture and provides a space in the district that leaves the guest hankering for a hot toddy at the height of summer.
"At KABIN we want to create something destinations like the French Alps and Aspen...It's unlike anything else in the District," said Basnayake.
Designer Brien Z. Watson of Invironment Design LLC created a space of vintage skiing murals, tanned-leather banquettes, and polished brass and bronze mirrors. There is even a virtual infinity fire-box that warms the center of the room.
