Capital Riot is the official Roaring Riot chapter for Washington, DC! Formerly DC Panthers Fans we have been the home for Carolina Panthers fans in the Washington, DC area since 2004.

We meet for all games at Lucky Bar which is located just a few blocks north of Farragut West and a block south of the Dupont Circle Metro Station and Mad Rose Tavern in Arlington, VA just off of the Clarendon Metro. Panthers fans enjoy game day food and drink specials!

With game audio throughout the bars Panthers fans have a home away from home in the Washington, DC area. In addition to the games on many of the TVs (we also show other games, especially competing conference games) we also present the “stadium experience” – the sounds you love from home games at Bank of America Stadium – the Panthers roar, “Boom Boom” after touchdowns and lots more!

Come see why folks say, “these guys have something special.”


Last season we experienced unprecedented turnout so to accommodate our growing fan base the Capital Riot will be hosted in two locations: Lucky Bar in Dupont Circle in Washington, DC and Mad Rose Tavern in Arlington, VA’s Clarendon neighborhood. Both locations will provide game audio, game day food and drink specials and two $25 gift certificates/bar tabs for Roaring Riot members!
