We're Glad You're Here.

Much like the Dupont Circle fountain is the gathering spot that anchors our neighborhood, Firefly is ready to breathe new life into Hotel Madera and our iconic neighborhood’s dining scene. Oh, and to proudly reclaim our place as a favorite local hangout. Mix and mingle or get the bartender to bring life to a drink you’ve just conjured up. Whimsical and elemental.

Fresh and uncomplicated. Comfortable and inviting. New American cuisine not too far from the kind of comfort food you always crave. Live music on the side, craft and sips, wine dinners around the community table or effortless private dining, our easy vibe makes this the kind of place that feels like a second home.


Welcome back. We've got a new glow.

Contemporary American comfort food. Seasonal menus. Innovative cocktails. Grab your friends and gather around one of our salvaged barnwood tables. Carefully curated wine selections and tasty microbrews to celebrate with or just savor. Gigantic street-side windows that open wide and bring the outside in when it’s nice and fill the space with light when it’s not. And if you’re lucky, some live music tucked in the corner that will have you tapping your toes and lingering just a little longer

Book one of our private rooms, our large outdoor terrace, or buy out the entire restaurant. Customize your event and make it yours. And leave the rest to us.
