Club cheval is the Voltron of underground electronic music. The group is composed of four French electronic music prodigies who have each had successful careers as DJs and producers in their own right, but their most magical music comes when they’re working together. Perhaps it’s because each member brings to the table different but complementary influences, be it French rap and electro, British rave nostalgia, or American R&B and hip-hop.

The Royal‘s Paul Carlson went to great lengths to get his hands on a traditional Guatemalan shaved-ice machine, and now he’s putting it to good use. The LeDroit Park bar is serving four boozy, shaved-ice cocktails ($10-$13) ranging from a tiki-like “Trade Winds” with dark rum, pineapple, lime, and cinnamon to a frozen take on a Negroni. Try them with hot weather dishes from recently appointed Chef Anna Miller such as shrimp ceviche topped with popcorn ($16). The Royal, 501 Florida Ave. NW. (202) 332-7777. theroyaldc.com.
