Capitol Hill – North/Union Station
The Capitol Hill North area, also known as the NoMa/H Street/Atlas Distric neighborhood, has seen many changes over recent years. No matter what you call it, this area offers the perfect mix of convenience to work as well as to hip and trendy boutiques, restaurants and pubs.
Not only can you walk to the U.S. Senate (4 blocks), U.S. Capitol Building (5 blocks) and the U.S. House of Representatives (25 minute walk) but all of the excitement of city life is right out your front door. Our property sits directly across the street from Washington, DC’s historic Union Station placing you only a few minutes to Chinatown, Metro Center or Dupont circle. It’s easy to explore all corners of the city from this near North-east location.
The Capitol Hill-North/H Street corridor is experiencing a renaissance punctuated by a growing bar and restaurant scene and housing that attracts young urban professionals from all over the world.
Some of H Street’s most popular establishments include: the hipster mecca Rock & Roll Hotel; the H Street Country Club, where beach boardwalk games like Skee-Ball and mini golf are in high demand; and Dr. Granville Moore’s, a Belgian-themed gastropub that may be the area’s biggest draw.
Evidence of the neighborhood’s popularity can also be seen at the annual H Street Festival in September. Thousands attend the day-long event each year. This neighborhood-wide carnival stretches for blocks and showcases the area’s diverse offerings.
The neighborhood is not all new bars and restaurants, and a number of establishments considered local landmarks are still alive and well. The Atlas Performing Arts Center has been providing the community with theater and music performances since 2001, and the Argonaut, one of the pioneering bars in the neighborhood, is still serving discounted beers and sweet potato fries at happy hour.
The area is serviced by Union Station’s metro line as well as the X1, X2, 90, 92 and 93 bus lines.
