Guide to H Street

H Street Neighborhood in Washington, DC.

In the past few years, H Street has gone through tremendous transformations, rebuilding its rundown streets and closed storefronts and developing a neighborhood with a steady nightlife, thriving music and arts scene and affordable housing. H Street is an up-and-coming area with much more growth and improvement in its future.

H Street’s Surroundings

H Street is located in the northeast quadrant, surrounded by Capital Hill to the south and Trinidad/ Gallaudet to the north. To the east it is bound by 15th Street, to the west by 2nd and M Streets, to the north by Florida Ave and to the south by F Street.

Getting Around

The closest metro stations to H Street are Union Station and the New York Avenue station—each about a mile away. Though there is no metro station, many bus lines service the neighborhood (X1, X2, 90, 92 and 93).

Making a Home Here

Living in H Street is relatively affordable compared to other DC neighborhoods, offering mostly single-family rowhomes. Many young professionals who have been priced out of other areas call H Street home, as the area is undergoing much rebuilding and more businesses are opening.

Reclaiming Its Great Past

H Street was one of DC’s earliest and busiest commercial districts. A popular destination for shopping and high-end dining, the area took a downward turn after World War II, as people began moving away from the city into suburbs. Exacerbated by the 1968 riots following Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, the neighborhood deteriorated as stores closed and streets were deserted.

However, H Street is making a come back, with new developments putting the neighborhood back on the map. In 2002 the District of Columbia Office of Planning began a community-based effort to revitalize the area. The arts and entertainment district took the lead in revamping the neighborhood, developing a steady nightlife. After 2007 the area rapidly gentrified with the opening of many new parks, grocery stores and businesses.

From Dark Windows to Shining Spotlights

In the beginning of H Street’s revitalization effort, the arts took the reigns in directing redevelopment. Most notably, the Atlas Performing Arts Center made huge strides in nurturing a healthy nightlife in the area. Originally built as a movie theater in 1938 as part of the Kogod-Burka chain, the theater thrived for many years. However, it closed for good in 1976 as more people moved out of the neighborhood and more businesses shut their doors. In 2001, it was purchased in 2001 and refurbished into the Atlas Performing Arts Center, which now hosts everything from dance, comedy, music and film.

 

Gallery O on H Street is another place for H Street’s artistic community to thrive. Run by an artists’ organization boasting about 1,800 members, Gallery O and H hosts fun events such as burlesque classes to raise money for breast cancer awareness and Mardi Gras parties.

 

Rock and Roll and Country Clubs

The Rock and Roll Hotel is a crucial destination for any music lover. A three-floor music venue and nightclub, the Rock and Roll Hotel, while not actually a hotel, is the place to go if you’re looking for a night of good music and dancing. Hosting a variety of local acts and bands from all over the world, the Rock and Roll Hotel also has a rooftop bar for enjoying cocktails on a nice summer’s night.

The H Street Country Club is another local favorite, offering a variety of fun games and top-notch Mexican food. The country club includes an indoor miniature golf course, arcade games, shuffleboard and skeeball. With a laid-back atmosphere, it is the perfect place to go for a casual night out with friends.

For people looking to try more exotic cuisine, Ocopa offers a wide variety of Peruvian food. Serving standard dishes such as roast chicken and cevishe, it also has more adventurous options including lamb belly and beef heart. Other interesting local eateries include New Orleans-themed Po Boy Jim’s and Micho’s Lebanese Grill.

 

Looking Ahead to a Bright Future

H Street has come a long way in the past few years. Once a neighborhood of empty storefronts and deserted streets, the neighborhood is gradually reclaiming its history of being a vibrant urban community. As new projects have shown great success, we can be sure to see even more great improvements in H Street’s future.
