Lounge 201 has officially revamped and rebranded as 201 Bar. And tonight, it’s party time. The Capitol Hill restaurant and bar (not lounge!) is hosting a celebration beginning at 8 p.m. with free samples from the new food and craft cocktail menus as well as dancing and drink specials.

Among the changes to expect from the space: no more bright red banquettes or leopard print ottomans. Instead, Bar 201 has a more modern look with lots of additional flat-screen TVs. It aims to be a more upscale version of its sister restaurant, Union Pub.
