Spend Sunday in the sun with drinks and DJs

Craig Hudson/For The Washington Post - Marvin’s extended rooftop bar creates a large, comfortable spot to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with good music, cheap drinks and a lively crowd.

By the time Sunday afternoon rolls around, I often realize that I’m not ready for the weekend to end. Yes, I have to be back in the office in less than 24 hours. Yes, I probably should clean the bathroom and do some vacuuming.

On the other hand, the sun is shining and I didn’t suffer through that never-ending winter so that I could sit on my couch. I want to be outside, listening to good music, having a drink and hanging out with friends.

Out on the Deck 
With Keenan and Smudge

3 to 8 p.m. Marvin, 2007 14th St. 202-797-7171. www.marvindc.co

For the sixth straight year, DJs Keenan Orr and Lucas Smudge helm one of the most irresistible parties in Washington. Sunday afternoons at Marvin are always full of good-looking people sipping $4 mimosas, $5 Absolut Peppar bloody marys and $6 glasses of wine and rail drinks until the sun sets. The music is just as diverse as the crowd: Orr might drop DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s “Summertime” or A Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxation,” while Smudge’s playlist ranges from Public Enemy to ZZ Top.

The bearded Smudge, who looks like a member of a metal band, and the slight, stylish Orr appear to be the classic odd couple — “I’m the straight white DJ and he’s the gay black DJ,” Smudge jokes — but you can hear just how much fun they have playing off each other. They were first paired at the Rock and Roll Hotel in 2008 and have worked together since. Their primary gigs are elsewhere: Orr regularly spins at Cobalt, where the Washington Blade named him “Best DJ,” and in New York City; Smudge holds down the main room at Eighteenth Street Lounge on Saturday nights but also pops up at Velvet Lounge and Little Miss Whiskey’s.

When they get together on Sundays, magic happens. Their retro jams elicit some dancing, though most people are content to grab a seat, gab and flirt. The atmosphere is comfortable — the fall 2011 expansion that merged Marvin’s rooftop with the deck at the neighboring (since closed) Blackbyrd Warehouse turned a long, narrow space into a wide terrace with two large bars, twice as many seats and standing room to spare. Throw in affordable cocktails and a lively crowd, and you’ve got an upscale, enjoyable summer party.
