Logan Circle, Washington, DC.

A direct result of the skyrocketing rents in nearby Dupont Circle, Logan Circle’s growth has seen old Victorian row houses being restored en masse and converted into lofts or condos for the young professionals who continue to migrate to the area.

The commercial corridors along 14th and P Streets have undergone major revitalization since the 1990s, where everything from high-end gastropubs to mainstay Motown joints have taken over former auto garages and abandoned hotels, making it easy for both beer and music snobs to find what they’re looking for.

Most of the nightlife scene is still set on the border of Dupont and Logan Circle – where several of the city’s hottest gay bars come alive when the sun sets – or north along 14th toward the U Street Corridor, which is easily one of the top nighttime destinations in town.

Near the neighborhood’s namesake traffic circle, a variety of boutique art galleries, restaurants, and live theater has flourished, but the area’s influx of money is perhaps most evident in the fact that its Whole Foods is one of the chain’s most successful markets.

Given its largely residential nature, Logan Circle is relatively subdued during the day, although the area really explodes each spring during the Washington, DC Pride parade and corresponding festivities, rivaling the throngs that fill the streets in Dupont Circle, DC’s gay capital.
