Roofers' Ramble is DC's blues and lindy hop event at the Roofers Union in Adams Morgan.

Each Monday, Roofer's Union clears out their dining room to make space for the blues and lindy hop community, and we hire a band OR blues and lindy DJs to spin your favorite tunes.

In between dances, try one of the 22 craft beers on tap or something off their awesome menu (the crispy brussel sprouts are ah-mazing!).

Attire:
Wear what feels comfortable! You'll see people wear jeans, dresses, skirts, collared shirts--pretty much anything goes. We request that ladies do NOT wear heels. This keeps the noise level down for the shop below the venue.
