H Street’s “Atlas District”
Clubs, bars, theaters and restaurants have popped up on Washington DC’s H Street in recent years thanks to renewed gentrification efforts. With development around the landmark Atlas Theater, hip new crowds are rediscovering H Street. It’s kind of a hassle getting there due to a lack of public transportation, but trolleys are expected to be build by 2013. For now, if you’re trying to reach H Street Washington DC, call a cab and head east!
Rock and Roll Hotel
“You can play here but you can’t stay here.”
R&R’s got private suites, reckless bar games and super diverse music (indie rock concerts to DJ nights). The non-pretentious attitude and engaging atmosphere guarantees a great night out.
The Argonaut Tavern
The Argonaut is the first of the new wave of venues to open in H Street’s Atlas District.
Let your evening set sail at this ‘sailor’s hangout’ with 25+ types of rum, handcraft beers and coastal-inspired menu.
Happy hour and beer/food specials make the Argonaut a great place to chill.
This place is like DC’s German beer heaven. We’re talking hefeweizen, kolsh, pilsners… the list goes on.
A taste of Bavaria to DC, Biergarten Haus also serves dope German food like homemade jager-schnitzel and sweet strudels late into the night.
With a huge outdoor patio, it’s also an incredible spot to enjoy a drink on a nice day.
H Street Country Club
Grab a round of drinks and grub some Mexican food before taking a swing at H Street’s DC-themed, indoor miniature golf course!
If margaritas and golf aren’t your thing, they’ve got over 25 tequilas, shuffleboard and skeeball.
Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar
Reminiscent of a New Orleans bar (thanks to purple & green lighting and Saints football), Little Miss Whiskey is known for:
- an extensive beer selection
- popular theme parties
- DJs spinning the best of the 80s, 90s, and today
- Saints football, obviously
Check out our profile of Little Miss Whiskey’s!
The Pug is a boxing-themed bar with a very clear and simple philosophy:
“No idiots. No specials. No shooters. No politics. No bombs. Relax. Be cool. Drink. Behave.”
Each of these nine statements can be found on chalkboards hanging over the bar. Think you can do that?
If you can handle it, you might really enjoy the eclectic Red Palace.
It’s got indie rock shows, old school DJ nights, magic/variety shows, burlesque, a virtual vintage slideshow museum and all the drinks you could want.
If you want sushi and tater tots or just trying to get hammered off sake, Sticky Rice is the place to be.
Weekend nights have VDJs and are a seriously awesome time. Low key, great vibe, everything you want in a bar.Tweet
