Getting Around U Street Corridor

Around U Street Corridor

U Street has a mix of luxury condos and row houses. The closer you get to the U Street corridor, the main drag of the neighborhood with shops, bars, and restaurants, the more activity you'll see. Though it's not particularly noisy in the corridor, parades and other activities bring some noise.

U Street is known for its hip and diverse dining scene, including soul food, Caribbean spots, and several Ethiopian restaurants and markets. The vibe at these restaurants is always lively--don't be surprised if you step into a restaurant and spot a jazz musician playing in the corner.

U Street does not have that many families with young children. Many young professionals and graduate students live in the area and share townhouses. Middle-aged couples, retired people, small children are more scarce.

Grab dinner at one of the area restaurants. Then visit a jazz hall or get a ticket for one of the many music venues, which often host worldwide famous hip-hop, EDM, and indie acts, alongside smaller artists. Or check out a show at the Howard or Lincoln Theatre. End your night with a drink at one of U Street's many bars. For late-night eats, visit the famous Ben's Chili Bowl, which is open past midnight.

Have a light breakfast or brunch at one of the popular spots on U Street. Then, check out the neighborhood's art galleries, historic jazz venues, or a matinee at the theatre. Or check out one of the small shops in the area for vintage and other one-of-a-kind goods, and take a walk past the neighborhood's colorful murals. Then, rent a bike and explore the nearby neighborhoods.
