New Black tech start-up, Katika, is not your average start-up. Though focused on their main platform, the Katika mobile app, this company began branching into other social mediums such as Katika Experiences and Katika Black Bar Crawl. After hosting three successful bar crawl events in Philadelphia, Katika tried its hand at hosting their famous bar crawl in the nation’s capital, Washington, D. C. on August 17th. The venues on the bar crawl were mainly on the U-Street Corridor: Vivid Lounge, Ben’s Next Door, Pure, and 1942 Lounge with the after-party at Po’ Boy Jim Bar & Grill. With over ninety “crawlers”, tickets were still being sold the day of the event! Each venue is Black-owned and provided impeccable service to the “crawlers.” Every lounge/restaurant was accompanied by resident DJs–DJ Premonition, DJ Kidd Fresh, and DJ C-Stylez. Based on the feedback from the attendees, Katika will definitely be back to host another bar crawl in D. C. next year–you don’t want to miss it!
