Boum (noun : la booem) from the French slang popular with teens for “house party”
This is a revolutionary style brunch where guest dine and party and do everything they weren’t
allowed to do under pure parental supervision as young adults. This adult only (21+)brunch party takes its name from the French slang for “house party,” also the name
of the 1980 teen romp that launched the career of Sophie Marceau, the Parisian Molly Ringwald.
Guests will be enticed by a delicious brunch menu
as a DJ spins an infectious playlist. The lights will be dimmed, the shades will be closed and corks will be popping. There
is never a dull moment as the hosts take you on a three-hour afternoon experience always with smart twist and turns from the
mundane DC brunches.Likewise, this brunch is not for the conservative or the weary. No Kids, No Chores,
No Errands, No Laundry, come ready to party, forget about real life for the afternoon and be prepared to stay the entire afternoon.
This is truly a unique viral party experience.
The only way to get a seat
is with a reservation.Seats are currently being reserved weeks in advance and always at capacity. They
can be requested through the form below.
Grab some friends and come play!

La Boum Brunch was absolutely amazing. We had such a great time! This is the way
to do brunch in DC. Also, we sat at the bar & absolutely loved it. Best place in the house. Looking forward to heading
back there in December!

Vivre La France!! VIVRE L'ENFANT!!! This was HANDS-DOWN the MOST FUN that I have EVER had at brunch. Being
slightly conservative (but not a prude), I just had to experience the special Sat. brunch (La Boum) once I read about it several
months ago. It was a PHENOMENAL PARTY/BRUNCH!!! Great host, great crowd, great DJ, great energy, GREAT time!! Everyone should
experience this, well.....maybe not prudes!! :-)S
Disco ball fabulousness!

AMAZING!! This place rocks. If you want a happy Saturday filled with champagne and dancing, blow off Home Depot and
make a reservation for the La Boum brunch. Great staff, owners, DJ, food, and entertainment. This is a must-go right of passage

Wow, I'd heard about the brunch and was looking forward to
a fun evening but La Boum Brunch was the craziest dance your face off brunch I have ever experienced. In fact it is unique
in providing exceptional service, delicious food, wicked dance music, and a wee bit of a burlesque show all rolled up in one.
One word, Amazing! Its a little small and when its packed with people its gets pretty sweaty but if you have an extra shirt,
or dont mind taking your cloths off its all good.
It was a wonderful experience

It was a wonderful experience that should be experienced at
least once by any adventurous, true D.C. resident.The food was amazing, the wine/beer list great, the waitstaff & hostess
were very nice and knowledgeable. I would, and have, highly recommend La Boom brunch to anyone near and far.
“We’re not just throwing a party. We’re
pretending our parents are away for the weekend, and we have the keys to the liquor cabinet. Our friend KC is DJing. This
is not your grandmother’s brunch, this is LA BOUM.” ---Jim Ball, co-owner
