Cobalt (1639 R St., N.W.) has a lot going on this weekend with multiple guests tonight and Saturday.

Sherry Vine will be performing with her “partner in crime” Joey Arias tonight at both Level One and Cobalt.

“I love it,” says Vine about performing at Cobalt.

This is the first time Vine and Arias have performed in D.C. together and the duo will begin the night with a dinner cabaret show at Level One at 9 p.m.

“It’s such a great crowd … [the restaurant] is so intimate, they can see you sweat,” Vine says.

At midnight, the two New York City drag queens will move upstairs to Cobalt and perform again.

Don’t fret, the performance upstairs will be different.

“We’ll do something up and fun, something crazy,” Vine says. “People should come out if they want to see an all live-singing, comedy, New York City drag show.”

Also at Cobalt, Keenan Orr and DJ Jim Gade will be spinning along with the usual Friday open bad from 11 p.m. to midnight.

Reservations are required for the 9 p.m. show and can be arranged by visiting

The events continue Saturday night with Cobalt’s Prom party with Andrei’s first prom filled with tacky decorations, powder blue tuxedos and the crowning of prom king and queen.

Also that night, DJs Razor and Guido who use to perform at Nation will be spinning and for his first time at Cobalt, DJ Joey O, general manager of recently closed Apex.

There will be a $10 cover for the prom party.
