H Street Corridor, Washington, DC –
The H Street Corridor – a mile-long stretch of H Street extending east from Union Station – has been the focus of a major redevelopment campaign since 2003, resulting in dozens of bars, acclaimed restaurants, and respectable music venues popping up along a stretch that was largely devastated by race riots in the 1960s.
The eastern boundary of the Corridor is marked by the 60,000-square-foot Atlas Performing Arts Center, where four theaters and three dance studios welcome a steady stream of international films and eclectic performances.
Foodies with a more discerning palate can make their way to the highly-acclaimed Granville Moore’s gastropub for signature mussels and fries, or grab a handcrafted specialty cocktail made with American spirits at Church & State.
When the late-night munchies hit – and if the outdoor chef isn’t grilling on the patio at Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar – Taylor Gourmet serves up fat hoagies till 3am on Fridays and Saturdays, and Dangerously Delicious Pies dishes out enough sweet and savory options to quell any alcohol-fueled hankering.
Though still a work in progress, the mix of edgy and exciting nightlife options along the H Street Corridor only continue to grow.
Hipsters, artists, musicians, and unpretentious young professionals, mid-20s to late 30s.
