Compass Coffee

1535 7th Street NW

Real Good Coffee Made In DC. The original cafe
and roaster pouring flavorful fair trade brews.

Le Diplomate

1601 14th Street NW

It’s as if someone picked up a Parisian bistro and dropped it in the middle of D.C.’s 14th Street—shiny red booths, green subway tile and a show-stopping zinc bar.

9:30 Club

815 V Street NW

Named one of the 10 best live music venues in America by Rolling Stone, the 9:30 Club is my favorite music venue in town!

The Dabney

122 Blagden Alley NW

The restaurant that put Blagden Alley on the map. Walk into the former row house and you’ll see exposed brick, warm wood tones, a showcase hearth, and a killer twist Mid-Atlantic cuisine.

with a new Whole Foods downstairs

A giant, brand new Whole Foods is literally right outside the door. With a great selection of local produce, over 400 wines to choose from, a full-service butcher, and an in-house bakery serving made-from-scratch breads, cakes, and pastries, there’s plenty to keep your shiny, full-size fridge stocked 24/7.

This local institution known for its half-smokes, a D.C. specialty, has made U Street its home for over 60 years.

Ben’s Chili Bowl serves their legendary hot dogs and chili with a heaping side of soul—the perfect way to cap off a late night or weekend afternoon.

From here, go anywhere.

For your ease of movement, we’re mere minutes away from all forms of public transportation.

the best of the city is at your feet

Though the National Mall stars in myriad movies and TV shows, it’s far more awe-inspiring in real life. From the solemnity at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to the stirring energy at the Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial, you’ll find that each monument or memorial has its own atmosphere. In other words: Prepare to feel all the feels.

The steps of the Lincoln Memorial has been home to many defining moments in American history.
