Painting the town red....
The lights were dim and the bottles popping as DC nightlife institution Josephine debuted back onto the scene with a bold new look. The long time favorite for late night energy reopened with a new back room, revamped features and lighting built to respond to the music.
The reopening was sponsored by Belvedere Vodka whose new (Red) version was specially produced to raise funds for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The collaboration was launched as a Special Edition Bottle in September 2011. Both RED and Belvedere Vodka are are long time supporters of the HIV/AIDS cause and donate 50% of profits from the global sale of special edition BELVEDERE RED to the charity.
