There’s so much to do and see on H Street, just blocks from Union Place apartments, the only hard part is choosing from all the options.
Be it a rock show, live jazz or a dance performance, H Street has the makings of an incredible evening ahead of you. Let’s start with the classic confines of the Rock & Roll Hotel. It’s not an actual hotel, but a house of music, featuring rock shows from local and national acts and a DJ-driven dance floor. Shift gears at The Atlas Performing Arts Center with a more eclectic lineup of music, dance and live entertainment to expand your horizons with a more artist experience.
Try something a little more interactive. Pop in to H Street Country Club and challenge friends to a rousing game of mini golf, Skee-Ball or shuffleboard. For more pixilated pursuits, Bar Elena will fuel an evening of 8-bit fun with its old-school video games. Plus, if you’re lucky enough to live at Union Place apartments, you can always head home to play pool in the game room.
All this activity is sure to work up a mighty hunger. H Street is known for an amazing assortment of delicious food from independent, i.e. non-chain, establishments. In the mood for mussels? Granville Moore’s has a selection of delectable bivalves (and pomme frites) with a variety of savory broths for you. Ramen cravings? You’re in luck; Toki Underground is one of the best ramen shops in the country, according to Travel & Leisure and Thrillist. Ethiopian fare? Ethiopic has you covered. Name it and you will probably find it on H Street—and it will be good. Plus, if you get inspired to create your own culinary masterpiece while out and about, you can stop by Whole Foods Market to pick up ingredients on the way home.
Don’t let all this food and entertainment distract you from procuring a beautiful beverage; H Street is known for providing visitors with an inspiring array of libational options. From the authentically chill beer garden setting of Biergarten Haus and its liters of German brews to the creatively crafted cocktails at Copycat Co., you’ll find no better street in the city to enjoy a cold drink. If craft beer is your thing, Smith Commons or Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar should be regular stops as well.
So, when the sun goes down and the lights come up on H Street, you’re only a short walk or ride away from a really great night out when you live in a lovely apartment at Union Place.
