: In the prestigious tradition of exciting new adventures hidden in the unlikeliest of locations, you basically get to Tropicalia by venturing underneath the Subway sandwich shop on U Street NW. Just walk down the stairs, following irresistibly kinetic musical beats, onto the darkened floor, and lose yourself for a couple hours. Tropicalia opened almost a year ago, and has gained momentum by filling a need for someplace that features Afropop, Soul and Latin music (via live bands and DJs) on a consistent, regular basis.
